Posh In Hells Kitchen – It has been awhile sine I was in NYC and things seem to change a lot. What happend to the original bartenders Jason and Michael and Derek? Gone are the good ole days and so is hospitality. Whats with all the turn over here. I felt like I was in South America with all the new little wife beaters running around behind the bar. All good things come to an end.
Great customer service – I would like to thank Jesus, Artoro,Jeff,Adam and the DJ who made my 46th birthday party at Posh the most exciting birthday I have ever had in my life. They went completely out of their way to make it a very special evening for me, my friends and family. Keep up the good work guys!!!!!!
Posh Optional – Though I found this bar to be somewhat small, in all honesty I had a over all fun experience. This was the first gay bar I attended after my arrival to the City. Though I would not consider it the apitamy of a gay A-list society I found "Posh" inevitably refreshing with a layed back envirnment and well balanced drinks. I have return to the bar since only pleased to find that the overall experience and density remained regular. I expect to return...
Fabulous – I am form NC and i went to Posh last Monday night. I have NEVER been to a more friendly, amazing, and fun club before. I go to clubs almost every night. No club I have ever been to can compair to this one! I even went back the next night! AMAZING!!!!! I travel to NY very often and I think I have found a place i can chill and have a fabulous time! I wish they had a myspace! haha!! If you have never been you need to go! I will be back.......
Speed it up bartender!!! – I went to Hells Kitchen last night cause I hear Wed. night is packed at this bar. Either my friends were wrong or the rock and roll bartender with pointed side burns and lets just face a head of hair that was just a mess, was just so darn slow no one could get a drink. I stood next to him while he honestly leaned over the bar in a conversation about HImself for nearly a life time. Completely ignored me and my friends while we were parched of thirst.!!
Seriously, aside from this the bar was a blast and I will be back. The bartender this just did not do it for me so bad I had to write it on here.
But hey, don't take my word on it, try it out for yourself. Just not on Wed.
A neighborhood stalwart stays alive with formula-tested mix of drink specials and live DJs. – In Short
The bar's namesake may be slightly misleading--unless Posh Spice is the first image that comes to mind. If that's the case, you'll probably love this watering hole in Hell's Kitchen, where the DJ might even throw down a stray number from the diva's back catalogue. Other Top 40 hits lure an enthusiastic late-night crowd to the small dance floor, while a modest bar tends to happy hour regulars. An elevated alcove in back has extra-comfy leather sofas that Broadway extras (or those aspiring to be) are prone to use as platforms for look-at-me gyrating.
Hits: No pretenses and well-positioned on the Hell's Kitchen bar circuit.
Misses: The decor could use an update, and it can be dead during off hours.
Great Spot – Stopped to meet a friend a few weeks ago. Was my first time there. I've been back a bunch of times since. It's a really friendly and fun place to grab a few drinks and meet some new people. Totally reasonable prices (especially during happy hour, 'til 8) and a super-friendly staff to boot. While its always fun, I definitely recommend Friday nights--really good crowd and energy without being over the top!
Where else can you find as much fun in this neighborhood??? – I went there by accident and although it is a gay bar I was welcomed with open arms. The staf and clientele are fabulous. The drinks: out of this world! DJ Scotty Rox is hot hot hot. Great music and drinks. I am going back next weekend and maybe ill even check out Wednesdays project runway there I heard it is a blast.
The hottest gay bar in New York's famous Hell's Kitchen – When in Hells Kitchen you must stop by at POSH. I highly recommend it for its ambiance and service. Attractive and attentive bartenders and server. (Very cute also) There is always something happening at POSH. Drag performances, Contests, Midnight Pizza and the hottest DJ's in the city. If you are 21 or 70, it does not matter you will feel welcome ALL the time. Then there is the famous happy hour every day, you should not miss it. 1/2 price drinks!!! Go there and have fun (alot)
Rough around the edges, but functional – This bar has all the necessities, I liked the dance floor. The crowd is not the typical Chelsea boy. Very easy going crowd.
