Birthday Party – Had a party there last night. Had a wonderful time. Everyone was so pleased with the food and drinks. Good food, good drinks, good time. The only con was the nastiness of the bouncers at the front door. At least 6 of my guest came in with complaints about them. Other than that I was pleased with my husbands choice of party place.
Such a fun place to go! – Me and some girlfriends stopped by PS450 last week for Happy Hour after work on Thursday and ended up staying almost til closing time! We had such a good time. The drinks were delish, the food was awesome (the fries and flatbread: yummm) and the DJ was so cool. He played every song we asked for and to top it all off there were a bunch of nice guys who danced with us but weren't creepers. Me and my girls are going back for their Anti-Valentine's Day Party... maybe those guys will be there again (wink, wink)! An awesome spot, definitely highly recommended.
Sexy Chic Murray Hill Bar – Dark and classy, PS 450 may be Murray's Hill's answer to the impeccably dressed street fair of the Meatpacking District -- sans snooty doormen. The 32-foot sleek and modern bar, comfy banquets and streetside tables are perfect pre-game before heading to candlelit backrooms. There, you can catch the game on plasma TVs, order haute cuisine or listen to DJs 'til the wee hours.
Note: Eastsiders may not find the traditional frat-boy-grown-up here--unless he's playing the role in suit and tie (which suits us just fine).
Happy hour, weekend specials and party platters are popular picks.
Great Place to have your birthday – Just had my birthday here. The manager and staff were SUPER accommodating and friendly. The music was great and all of my friends keep calling to tell me what a great place I chose for my birthday. Just call a few weeks ahead of time if you need to reserved a space!
My Favorite Place – I love this place because it makes going out very easy. I don't know of anyone who has ever had a problem getting in, and everyone I bring there LOVES it. The music is a great mix of everything. The drinks are not that expensive. My biggest recommendation would be to get a table (which is free to do in advance, there's no minimum!) especially if you want a little room to dance because it gets packed very quickly. The food is also really good and the menu keeps changing so you never get bored!
can you give this place minus stars??? – the globe room? i would call it lost in the back of the room. Who wants to sit in the back of an over sized dive bar with waitress that can hardly speak English, She spent more time in the bathroom powering her nose than she did bringing us drinks. If I book a company party again it would not be with PS450.
Overcrowded...pushy...and rude – Dont' get me wrong the place is nice and the music is popping, but the SERVICE and WORKERS ARE HORRIBLE! When i went there this saturday it was so overcrowded the whole night that it was shoulder to shoulder and you couldn't dance.
The bathroom attendants were really rude and pushy... slamming the door in everyones faces. The coatcheck room was very disorganized losing tickets and jackets. The Waitresses were rude and impatient. They have security all over the place which is understandable, but when there is no place to move in a shoulder to shoulder crowd why be all touchy on everyone.
I put my coat in coatcheck....gave my ticket at the end of the night ...but no jacket there....they either store my coat or gave it away to someone ELSE! I'm not the only one who had this problem , because they were plenty of people waiting for their coats and they were mostly misplaced!
Fun Times – Recently had a large party here (50-60 people), and it was a good time. We had our own private room in the back, which wasn't big enough for our large group but it didn't matter, everyone spilled out into the general bar area. Not too clubby, not too divey, just a fun bar.
Fierce – Normally you would think walking into here it's just a nornal dive bar. Far from it. EVERYONE loves to have birthdays here for a reason. Its absolute entertainment. There's a LOng bar, so you can have fun, have drinks and conversation with all of your friends without losing them in a crowded 3 floor club. I have never been here to eat, but i WOULD recommend it for happy hr and great fun.
Non-pretentious. Just fun! – The last three reviews of PS 450 are B.S. This place is a great mix of Bar and Club. The music is really eclectic (rock, pop, hip-hop, dance), the staff is always friendly, the drinks are the cheapest north of 14th street, and you never have to wait more then a minute to get served. Also, no pretentious promoters or B.S. velvet ropes. Its just fun and not cheesy like its competition on 3rd Ave. It does get a little packed, but the crowd is NOT all meatheads as previously reported. In fact I'm not sure where else in the neighborhood you can find a 35ish guy in a suit and tie standing next to a 22 year old hipster. I go here a lot and I?ve never had any issues with the security. I think the reviewer who said he left and went to Les Halles must be over 60 years old. Halles is a restaurant that closes at midnight. Please... PS 450 is open all night, for real partiers.
