    This spot is very hit or miss. If you see a cowboy with a guitar DJing, leave ASAP. If you hear current Hip-Hop, stick around and it'll be a good time. Crowd skews towards late 20's early 30's

    Little known fact - there's an entire back room to this place that's usually empty and chill for after work drinks. (You might get booted for a birthday party)

    Great bar with an awesome mix of *ss shaking music, but not for the claustrophobic on a wknd night. Reserve a space if you plan on wanting room to breathe.
  • LaDawn P.
    Great place to wait for a table for some of the crowded nearby restaurants. Happy hour on weekends and it lasts until 8!

    Mitchell is smoother than Sean Connery, massaging ur feet, listening 2 Smooth Night Jazz 4 while wearing a velvet cod piece and speaking 2 U with a Parisian inflection. His drinks are also delicious

    They sure make some good Dark & Stormys. But if that's not your jam, they've got a great happy hour on drafts, wine and other cocktails until 8pm.

    I am a fan. They play good music and it's a huge step up from Sweet and Vicious if you're feeling like a sweaty sardine.

    Probably your best bet if you're looking to have an impromptu dance party in Soho.

    For good times, make sure you're there when Mitchell, Ellliott or Sonne are there. One of the best weekday spots in Manhattan

    Good spot to grab a drink. Not the best beer selection (nothing on draft) but it's quiet and far less crowded than anything else on the block.

    Big room you can rent out in the back

    Tip Brenton well because he deserves it - he's also hilarious and homeboy makes a mean ass drink.

    Sometimes the bartenders make really awesome improvised drinks and for those other times they also serve beer.

    $7 for a BOTTLE of Brooklyn Lager below 14th st at 6:15pm on a weekday is absolutely unacceptable.

    The bartender with glasses is a real asshole. Overcharged 30$ and threw a fit and started cursing when I asked him to correct it. He was super shitty- both times I've been there they're understaffed

    Least favorite bar in the city. They pack it way beyond capacity so it's a nightmare to even move.
