A fun bar! Lots of tables, and different areas to hang out. Full bar, obviously two floors, and lots of fun people. Drinks were decent, but priced for the area. The place was fairly clean with a nice atmosphere and good club music.

We have been a number of times to NYC and were sad that we had not found this place before. It was only after bumping into to some city guys in Marie's Crisis who suggested this and we went over with them and enjoyed ourselves a lot. It is different to MC as they use microphones and allow more solos... More

I'm a New Yorker. I'm used to high-priced cocktails. I don't mind well-made expensive cocktail. Ours were truly horrible. Two of us ordered the same drink and they bore no resemblance in taste or appearance.

My boyfriend and I tried out this bar on a recommendation of a friend. The bar staff were very friendly and welcoming. There was a very good and upbeat atmosphere in the bar with a pretty amusing guy playing the piano for everyone. We had a cocktail each and a couple of beers, the bill came to 52 dollars, for...

We were wandering around the village and saw a sign advertising "storytelling"...Having just heard about this via BBC Radio 4 (we're from the UK), we were curious as the idea isn't common at all in the UK. Anyway, we had a great time, and returned the following evening when the piano bar was in full swing. That was our last... More

Right in the core of the famous Greenwich village. A great place where to have a drink and listen to live music! Fridays and Saturdays are very busy but always great fun with great singers picked out of the audience. Maria Gentile and other bar tenders are all amazing singers!

What a cute little cabaret bar! It felt like a proper family run business where all the staff knew most of the customers names. Everyone was so friendly to each other and singing along to the piano.! The guy on piano was amazing, any song requested and he knew it. All the staff took a turn at singing their own... More

So I have gone to this place mulitple times. I still love all the singing at the piano bar. However, the place has more and more bachelorette parties and straight people at the bar. That is not a problem, but it is changing into a bar instead of a gay bar.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
