Dissapointing experience, Never Going Back!

  • No, I would not go back!

Wanted to check this place out, went with a couple of friends. We all thought the music was way too loud, bartender rude, and something was funky about the food - never going back!

lively but relaxed

The atmosphere at this place put me right at home from my first visit. I've come back here again and again with a wide range of people and it always seems to end up being a good night. The food is pretty good here, a small but varied menu. Fun bartenders too.

Live Burlesque on Sundays

  • Yes, I would go back!

Bar On A also hosts Kitty Nights, a live weekly Burlesque series on Sunday Nights at 9pm. There's no cover, but they do pass the tip bucket, and believe me, you'll WANT to tip these talented gals!

Neighborhood bar

I love this place. I consider it my neighborhood bar even though I live nowhere close to it. If you are looking for a place in Manhattan that doesn't have a pretentious crowd and you just want o have a drink and good conversation, this is the spot for you.

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.
