Rude bartenders and 80s music.

  • No, I would not go back!

I went to Alphabet Lounge for a friends birthday and I was told it would be a really fun time, which it had the potential of being, if the place wasn't so small and crowded. We had a $35 all you can drink package from 11-1 and the bartenders were all rude, and seemed to hate their jobs. While I love me some old school Madonna and Janet, I absolutely don't like 4 hours straight of it. I would go somewhere else before thinking about going there.

Excellent Friday Night!!

  • Yes, I would go back!

Located on East Village, I heard about this place via friends who celebrated their birthday and read the positive reviews from The NY Times. Also checked out reviews on As soon as I walked in with my friends to a cozy dim lighted, warm social club, we were greeted by the friendly bartenders. The Swanky ambiance, complimented the specialty drinks made by owner/bartender Babu, try their wide range of shots. Not a huge selection of drinks but I prefer quality over quantity. The place was packed but not overcrowded. DJ was spinning both old and new music from 80's to recent tracks, she was also taking requests and extremely nice. Overall we had a great night and would go back there again! I am thinking about hosting our next charity event there. Best time to go is on "Fabulous Friday." Free admission for Ladies, college students with valid college ID get free admission before 12am but RSVP.

Some Hints:

  • 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.
