This is a wonderful spot and loved it so much that we had a wedding post party here years ago. They serve some nice dishes and can accommodate a lot of people. Just love the homey atmosphere and easy to get to.

This little hidden gem is a fabulous place to unwind after a busy day in the city. Really laid back, cool atmosphere, great live music. Food looked and smelt delicious. Reasonably priced drinks, easy to find and great service.

If you're open to trying some different foods & flavored vodka this is a nice happy hour spot. The place looks and feels like an old time NYC bar which is exactly what it is in the theater district. People are friendly and service helpful.

Great time at a small intimate setting. Go for happy hour before a show or return after the show for live piano players. Had a great time. Service/bartender was excellent, friendly as were the patrons.
