Great time with friends – My friends and I decided to go to Fusion for a reunion of sorts and we had a really great time.
We showed up unexpectedly, about 17 of us, and the manager (who I think is the owner) immediately set up an area for us in the garden, where we ended up staying for most of the night.
I was pretty impressed with the service, prices, and strong drinks, not a combination you find much of in New York these days. If you like rum, the Tropitini is a great pick!
I'll definitely be going back with my friends or just to grab a beer.
Hidden Treasure – I stumbled on Fusion on my way home from work, would've never known it's there since it's tucked away in the middle of the block on 10th Ave. The happy hour drink specials listed on their sign caught my eye and I ventured in, only to realize they had a garden! They got a super delicious deal on happy hour cosmos that I go back for as often as I can.
I've had friends meet me here before dinner or a show and everything is always great.
Great neighborhood place.
My kinda place – I had read a few of the reviews of Fusion online and it sounded like the type of place my girlfriend and I would enjoy going to. We hit the nail on the head!! It's a great looking place, has a great vibe and most importantly, they don't shortchange you on the drinks - they're strong.
It's become our neighborhood bar and been there on a few different nights of the week. It can be a laid back and mellow place, but when it gets buzzin' you never know who you're gonna run into, definitely a mixed crowd kinda place. It feels like what I remember the downtown scene used to be years ago.
If you like whiskey, try the Southern Bang!
Strong, creative drinks – Friendly bartender set the mood while we waited for Colbert show across the street. Good strong drinks and we used the citysearch 2 for 1 special. Can't beat it. No food, but allowed us to order in.
Fusion, VERY GOOD! – Good drinks, great staff, comfortable ambiance, good crowd
Very cool atmosphere – Upscale vibe and ambience, without the snooty company. Cool setup and music, super clean, strong drinks and very friendly staff. Always a great time when I go, Happy hour is key! The place is never over-crowded like many others and I personally favor the outdoor section in the back, for us smokers. And for those of us that drive,,, theres always parking too. Highly recommended.
Such a Good Time! – I was at Fusion for a birthday gathering and had such an awesome night! The baretenders were all amazing, the decor is hot, there was a really mixed crowd and the drink prices were very reasonable. I rarely venture over to 10th Ave, but now I have a reason to go back! I would highly recommend this bar to anyone who is looking for a trendy night spot and a great time! Kudos, Fusion!
Cool Bar – Fusion isn't one of those pretentious bar/lounges that tend to pop up all over the place or go in & out of style like a pair of jeans. It's simply a great neighborhood bar with a good waitstaff, friendly owner and fellow customers that make it a place to always want to return.
Blah bar – Frankly i'm surprised this place would make anyone's best list - though maybe it all comes down to timing. I went here after work midweek - the place was half empty, and the bartender was less than accomodating. You can order food from a restaurant next door (diner fare). there's a back garden to sit in, and a little front area that's comfortable for a group, but otherwise the space is very narrow. The vibe sucked, basically, the drinks weren't that strong, and the soda was flat. There are better options in this area.
Fusion is a Great place! – I've been here a couple of times and really enjoyed myself. Very nice staff making very good drinks in a comfortable, down to earth atmosphere. Good for dates or just to hang with friends or coworkers. It's the kind of place that fits for all occasions.
