Very relaxed, but then there are go go boys – This place has a very lounge feel, then there are go go boys which are kind of out of place. The drinks are typical for NY.

In response to the "Lemon and Lime" comment – The reason the bartender doesn't know the difference between a lime and a lemon is because he is one of the many Colombians, that have come to this country and never bothered to learn English. By the way, his Spanish is not understandable either, I'm from Spain, don't you think I would know??

no lime only lemons!! – great large space. interesting layout that has potential. downstairs bathroom area is filthy. No attitude detected the few times i was there. I ordered dietcoke with lime and consistently received lemon. If you dont have lime just say so. The decor is bla and the bartenders are okay. No big deal.

A Great Place on the East Side – I have never had a bad time at Urge! But, I do wish that the down stairs lounge would reopen.

The dancers are HOT (some can even move to the music) and are very friendly.

The bartenders are fun, especially Dennis. Nice mix of gay gents.

You can get a date and not have to worry about hustlers.

Wish they had a dance area. Game/Event nights are fun.

One complaint about the customers: Guys bring their Hags with them and they stay too long.

Sorry if you cant get a date girls, but don't ruin my chances. Obviously Urge is a fun place for all!

Its Great to have a fun place on the east side!

Warm and friendly fun. – A nice place to start off the evening. Loungey atmosphere with mellow friendly crowd. Clean and nicely decorated. Fun drag shows.

Att-it-ude – The bartenders have the attitude without the looks to back it up. The whole staff needs Prozac. They have two bartenders on busier nights which means you wait and wait.

This place needs to clean house and it is NOT worth the visit. Ugly bartenders with way too much attitude.

Place is becoming less and less popular which is no surprise because the service stinks.

At least in Chelsea the attitude buys you something good to look at. Here they have creightons working the bar.

Go elsewhere...

URGE Lounge - Best Happy Hour in NYC ~ FruitFli – 8/01/07 Post by AFruitFli - This is in response to 01/02/2007 Posted by pengy103 - Darling, Hags are not the best to be in a boi bar. BUT let me tell you Hags are who get you your husbands my friend. Next time your there look for me, Jamie - "AFruitFli", I am not a HAG, but a fruitfli and will always be. Hags that talk to loud, drink too much and fall down and expect there queens to take care of them - do not need to go to boi bars and stay to the end. They need to have a drink and head home. So pengy103 - be nice to the "hags" and kindly ask them to get there huge pocket book and go to a straight bar to look at d*ck. Love Always, FruitFli!!!

07/28/2006 Posted by AFruitFli - This the one of the BEST happy hours in NYC! I basically live at URGE, my friends call it my second apartment. 2 and 2 baby - located on 2nd Ave, 2nd Street.... Its a local, "cheers" bar where they know your name and your drink!! Adam and Dennis are the BEST! xoxo FruitFli

Cruise central in the East Village, with game nights and go-go boys to bring 'em in. – The Scene
An ingenious, two-tiered bar--high on one side, low on the other, with untold cruising sightlines--dominates this space, whose mirrors and plasma screens help open up its railroad layout. Ultrasuede banquettes, creamy pillows and a conversation-friendly DJ also make it easy to spend time here. Nightly attractions (in addition to the clientele) include Ass Wednesdays with prize money for the best butt, as well as go-go boys on weekends.

older crowd... – If your part of the "past their prime" gay crowd, this would be a great place for you. But if you've still got your youth then you're very much better off finding another bar.

smells bad – otherwise i love the scene. i'm a straight girl who goes with my gay guy friend. i loved how they turned down the music for the ice skating olympics.
