Reviews for Soft Spot


Favorite neighborhood happy hour bar Soft Spot is crammed on Tuesdays when happy hour lasts all night, and relaxed on other weekdays. Wells and drafts are 2-for-1 during happy hour.

Rachel! – thanks for the $3 drinks. the only thing better than the bowl of goldfish with sneaky wasabi terrors was your charming bar-tude. The internet deserves to know about you and your little dog too. Soft spot has good music, and makes us glad to be here in non-hattan. Be there in a few.

intimate/friendly with patio area – Tap beer selection is small but good enough with standard fare (i.e. guinness, stella, etc.) and they even have Kirin on tap which i've only seen at izakaya joints in the city. Proprieter (Matt) is a sweetheart and kick-a@#* musician to boot so naturally, great music revolves in place. Happy hour rules with 2 for 1 till 8pm, then the HH kicks into gear again some nights from 11pm onwards. Patio is a lifesaver this summer however you get the boot after 10pm so beware, that's when the crowd inside swells and since place is small like east village joint 'welcome to the johnsons', not for clostrophobic peeps. Oh, forgot to mention the bartenders are amazing!

Can't Beat It – Soft Spot manages to be welcoming and laid back while remaining more sophisticated than other bars in the neighborhood. Eclectic crowd-- if you don't like the person you're talking to at the moment, turn around and find someone completely different. Simple and understated decor with enough of a sense of humor to keep things fun. which is enhanced by live music (sometimes impromptu) and fun drink choices. I will be back!

Joining the bevy of Bedford Ave bars, this spot serves sweet drinks and live jazz sans pretension. – The Scene
A snaking bartop winds along the deep-colored walls of this sultry neighborhood bar. A charming back corner replicates granny's living room, with a fully functional piano, lace doilies, and the fake fireplace made of Styrofoam stones and a faux-library facade. An equally quaint patio rests beyond, fashioned from a chipped birdbath, flowerboxes, shrubby plants, and speakers piping out jukebox selections from inside. Trendy tunes are eschewed for hipster staples, from Guns n' Roses to the Bobs (Marley and Dylan).

The Draw
The local crowd of cool kids and yuppies are drawn in with karaoke and live jazz, as well as the signature drink list. The bar's proprietor is a veteran bartender and self-proclaimed mixologist. Inspired concoctions include the energy-boosting Olivia Neutron John made of sugar-free Red Bull, vodka and triple sec, and the sinfully saccharine Soft Peach, which is as sweet and refreshing as a Freeze pop.
