poor music; poor hospitality
By analisetnuc on 10/15/2012
went to this place for my girlfriends bday; the music was subpar. staff displayed poor levels of hospitality and the drinks were overpriced. i guess the game thing is big for some folks; kind of lame....
one the worst bars in NYC
By Pefac on 4/14/2011
It's not horrible b/c of cleanliness, or decor or anything. It's just pointless. The bouncer upstairs is really strict and acts like it's the trendy club. When you get down there it's just a long narrow corridor with little rooms to the side, with a bunch a drunk 20 somethings playing games. The main room by the bar a little more spacious, but the drinks are college bar quality with meatpacking pricing, not worth it. Even a beer is like $8. The first time i went the place was so crowded you couldnt even move, you were stuck to the brick wall in the main hall. the second time was a little better b/c my friend called in advance to reserve a table. However even though she told them ahead of time that we were going to be like 10 people, they gave us a table to fit 4, so half the group ended up standing or sitting on the cocktail table itself. So many nicer and enjoyable places in that neighborhood. Dont waste your time or money here.

My friends and I fell upon 675 after leaving the Gansevoort hotel (which was also a lot of fun). The scene is unlike anything else I've seen in Manhattan, and I really liked the privacy you get by going into one of the little rooms off the long hallway. I would definitely go back again!

this place had a fun, easy vibe, unlike the surrounding spots..with that though, don't expect the best service. well drinks were average, nothing special. the music is really fun as is the layout of the place with the little nooks with tables for a small group. the big problem was the flooding! i was literally sitting for 10 min and when i got up i stepped into a puddle of water. security layed out towels on the floor but this was clearly enough for me and my friends to leave the bar. overall, it's a good go-to spot in meatpacking but bring a life vest.
Average and Unmemorable

This bar/lounge really had no memorable features. The only memorable moment may have been waiting outside in the frigid temperatures and chatting it up with the bouncer who patiently dealt with my groups shenanigans. The mixed drinks were weak and the draft beer were over-priced. Standard Manhattan fare in my opinion. None of my friends found this place to be spectacular or worth returning. The clientele was so-so but that could have also been because it was the eve of V-Day. Perhaps?! I would maybe come back here on another occasion.
A bar is as good as its bartender.

And our bartender was a bitchy nightmare. She saw us walk up to the bar, did not acknowledge us, and walked away to finish whatever she was doing with the olives or the mint or whatever else she could find to put off the inevitable of asking us what we wanted to drink. When she finally came back towards us I greeted her with a friendly "hello, how are you" to which I got no response. We dared to order our drinks despite the scowl on her face. For the remainder of the evening, she didn't ask us once if we wanted another drink, despite our prominently displayed empty glasses. She seemed more preoccupied with discussing boys and hair salons with the other bartenders than doing her job. There a are lot of great dive bars in New York that will treat you like crap for half the price.
really into this place
By blaireh on 6/30/2009
i have always felt that the bars that do the best here in the city usually have some sort of added bonus, theme or crazy reduced pitchers involved. but there has to be something for it to work and i think this placed nailed it, at least for me. 675 bar is the perfect combination of your parent's basement mixed with your bachelor friend's apartment. board games, pool tables, cozy nooks, cheap-ish beer, nice bites to eat. the only negative is that it's in meatpacking. that's all i can think of so far. will definitely return.
