My favorite bar in the city

By vivamax on 8/24/2010

  • Yes, I would go back!

I love the pool bar at Grace. I have been coming here for years and I am never disappointed. Yes, there is a cover, but that includes a pool, steam and sauna - this is a whole spa experience with booze - that makes any cover a total bargain. After coming so often I consider the bartenders friends, the steam room has to be the most intense in the city, and if you go on a weeknight you get a nice peaceful experience (my favorite). I recommend this place to every person I meet. This is truly an amazing hidden gem.

Seriously rude service, terrible atmosphere, complete rip-off

By guip on 3/2/2010

  • Overall Rating: 2
  • No, I would not go back!

After paying the $10 cover, I was ushered immediately upstairs to the coat check for a $4 mandatory inconvenience. The bartenders ignored everyone and acted too important to make a gin and tonic; perhaps they would have rather refilled the olive jar or something. Music was way too loud. There were people literally humping in the pool. This gets a 2 rating only because after complaining one of the managers gave me a free drink, which I gave away because I was so disgusted. Do not go here.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
