Come on with the Music – Love this bar usually, but on a recent visit, the music was unacceptably loud!! Even after telling our waitress, who was suffering as well, nothing changed. Come on people - take a hint. Great place to catch a drink in Union Sq. Love the open windows and the music itself was great. But when you're screaming to talk and jaw hurts after 1 story because it is so loud, it is too much. We stopped in the midst of a few discussions to laugh at how unbelievably loud the music was. We left after a drink only because it was so uncomfortable. Would have stayed much longer. When your patrons are telling you it is humoursly loud, take a hint and make them more comfortable. This was not at all a question of taste of certain patrons. You could see people leaning over to just talk and there were a lot of 'WHAT?' going back and forth. This isn't a club. Please fix this so we can come back!
I met my husband at Park Bar – Turns out you CAN meet your future spouse in a bar. Completely random Friday night, good drinks, great conversation, flattering lighting and 3 years later we're married.
A relaxed but rollicking atmosphere without any of the typical Union Square trappings. – The Scene
Paris Hilton wannabes, take note: This is not the Park Bar that boasts an outdoor Jacuzzi and beefy bouncers and was made famous by rap videos. This Park Bar is the opposite of all that. The throng of smokers congregating on the quiet street provides the only noticeable clue to its existence. Wood--and lots of it--decorates the bar's main room. Walnut panels line the entire space, and an oversized oak bar runs almost the length of the place. Stools and mahogany tables dot the right side.
Those seeking solace in the form of a well-poured pint of Boddington's (the bar attracts a significant British crowd) or a sizeable glass of wine pack the joint. The music, usually classic rock or acid jazz, plays softly in the background, without overwhelming conversations. The young, relaxed crowd shuns head-to-toe Christian Dior outfits in favor of jeans and T-shirts.
Great neighborhood bar – When faced with watering holes, such as, Heartland Brewery and the chairs outside of Toasties, Park Bar becomes even more enticing. It's an amazing place to stop by after work or late night on the weekends... always a very relaxed, cool crowd.
What a fantastic experience I had recently at your restaurant. The service was spectacular, your staff was wonderful and the food was delightful. It left such a great impression on me I decided to write you and let you know. Thanks again for a great experience!
THE BEST BAR IN LOWER MANHATTEN – I JUST MOVED TO TOWN AND I THINK THIS BAR IS EVERYTHING I EVER HOPED NYC WAS ALL ABOUT THE BARTENDERS ARE ARE SWEET ANT RESPECTFUL AND SO SMART!!! i HAVE HAD A BLAST JUST GETTING TO KNOW THEM. TOMMY. RICH DANILLE AND EVERY ON ELES. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE!!
A very unique place to go and enjoy yourself. – The earlier you get there the better it is. It get's very crowded as the night goes on. Bar area very crowded. It was a nice place to go while on vacation.
Tiny but fun – No waitress, just drinks at the bar. On this Thursday, the tiny place was packed, at least at 9PM. Things began to thin out SLIGHTLY around 11. We finally were able to snag one of the small tables around the periphery of the tiny place. The bartender was great, though Ai complained about the quality of her Margarita. The Brooklyn Lagers were all fine. The crowd was terrific, friendly to the max. It's slightly loud when it's crowded, but it's a great place to meet folks, or just hang out. WARNING: NO FOOD! -- Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers
Might just be my favorite bar – Good atmosphere, good people, great location, great beer selection, great prices.
Fun and funky bar with no pretention. Just a bunch of fun 20 somethings looking for a fun evening without having to deal with annoying bouncers, high prices, long lines at the bar, or a bridge and tunnel crowd.
This might just be my favorite bar. Have been three times in the past month. Why go anywhere else??
