Talk about a small intimate room! Seats 74 packed shoulder to shoulder but makes for much fun when you don't need a big crowd to rock the joint. Wait staff apparently not as friendly as upstairs but they got the job done.

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

Anybody can request to sing. You just write what you want to sing on a napkin and give it to the pianist.

It looks like more of a come as you are place, but I'd check the website regarding possible reservations. Also, there's been live music, every time we've been.
