    Don’t miss this place on a trip to Manhattan if you like ale and life! My second visit there after a gap of a decade or so and pleased to find it exactly the same.
    Has some food this time (probably a good idea as the beer’s so good) and it was pretty good and really inexpensive for New York.

    Can’t wait to go back!

    Amazing retro atmosphere, bar, large selection of great beer and liquors, very affordable prices. And hot dogs, a surprisingly pleasant addition

    Enjoyed a superb evening at Terra Blues. Quality Blues artists, atmospheric club and great value. Highly recommended.

    We were lucky enough to see the David Murray Quartet at the Vanguard. A fantastic evening of high quality jazz at one of New York's best clubs. The club is small & intimate but not overly crowded (despite being full the night we went). Service is great and drinks reasonably priced. Our evening at the Vanguard was everything we hoped it would be.

    Amazing views on empire state building and the lounge chairs similar to those we have at ski station are so cool
    Went with a friend for a rooftop and was not disappointed.
    We did not drink nor eat so cannot comment on this. Queue seemed super long to order so we did not bother too much. Looked more a place to grab a beer in a plastic cup rathder than fancy old fashion cocktails..
    Not sure i will pick this place for food
    Decor is underground nothing fancy and crowd is super chill and young
    Nice spot

    Visited with my wife this past Saturday for the 8:00pm “Sinatra Saturday” show.

    Transport yourself back to 1950’s NYC. Cigars, Drinks, Sinatra, Cocktail Waitresses, and people out having a great time!

    The 11 piece band was phenomenal !! As was the “chairman of the board”!

    One of the few places left in NYC where you can still enjoy a nice smoke.

    Had a few Lagunitas IPAs and an Ardbeg neat. Decent cigar menu on hand, but the tobacco minimum is waived during the Sinatra shows so I brought my own AJ Fernandez stick to enjoy.

    We had a great time and plan to return!

    Great NYC comedy club located in Chelsea. Went to one of the Gotham All-Star nights. Although, I didn't recognize any of the names of the comics who performed, all were great and provided many laughs. Small room without a bad seat in the house. However, don't sit along the stage unless you don't mind being picked on by the comics. $28 plus 2 drink minimum per person for a 90-minute show. There are usually 2-3 shows per night. I was able to book a table for 4 just a week before the show which was convenient unlike Comedy Cellar that was completely booked out well in advance.

    Such a fun night we went back again a couple weeks later, and I’m going to bring my sister when she visits me from out of town next month.

    Enjoyed a pleasant meal here with family whilst on holiday in NYC. Visually amazing restaurant with a good, happy atmosphere and music playing in the background. Lots of memorabilia to view and read about the history of the building. The restaurant is accessed through the gift/clothes shop upstairs. It was busy but we were able to get a table for five as a 'walk in'. We were seated right away by really friendly, happy, attentive staff. Expected main course portions to be bigger than they were (burger and chips) by USA standards but the ice cream sundae's/desserts were huge and tasted amazing! Meals were expensive but you are paying for the experience of eating in the iconic Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square NYC so that is to be expected!

    Booked this rooftop bar before we left UK and reservation was quick and simple. No deposit needed or any restrictions etc.

    Was sent a reminder about booking an hour before and all went smoothly.

    Upon arrival, the guy who checked us in asked for $50 per person just to sit outside where I had specified on original booking. Refused to pay as there was no mention of this beforehand. He allowed us to our seats and said he would check and come back to us. Well he never did throughout the night so he was obviously ‘trying it on’ because they hear another accent and presume we will fall for the trick.

    Reservation for Tuesday 28 May @10pm - check work rota to see who this guy was and he needs to be reprimanded

    Shame on you, unfortunately we didn’t take his name but apart from that we had a great evening and it overlooked some spectacular views.

    Why? Why not! Bit of a tourist trap but well worth a visit on a hot summer afternoon. Great location, super relaxed. Decent food and drink selection.

    Had we not known this was here, we would not have been able to find it. The walk down the dark scary alley was all part of the experience. Great swing music. Good drinks, and the bouncer Roger took us back in time to prohibition era NYC.

    After a heavy corporate party earlier that night this was the final stop for a few hardy travellers. The upstairs roof top/garden was charming and quirky. The drinks were good. The staff surprisingly indulgent. They let us dance like muppets until closing time. Definitely a party bar rather than a destination but if was in this part of town I would definitely be back, late at night.
