Nice Staff, but loud and meat-markety – There are some nooks and a few crannies here. The problem is that they're filled and unmoving. I guess you have to be there early (before 9PM) to snag an alcove table. If you do... don't give it up!! We were late and forced to make do in the BIG ROOM. That's where the DJ plays tunes for the 20-something crowd that frequents the place.
The music is so loud that it's impossible to talk over. I guess that's the idea, as the crowd seems like only guys and girls on the animal prowl. If they actually had to talk with each other they might find out how dumb they are.
Our waitress was kind, looking out for places to sit, helping us find space for our group. She seemed a bit overworked, and probably-- judging from the age group-- undertipped. Crowded, loud, loungy, it's got decent if not exactly fresh-from-the-microwave (read LUKE WARM) quesadilla to awful calamari). There's also a nice selection of girls with parts of their dresses missing.
If you like that sort of thing, this might be the place for you. It was definitely NOT the place for us. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers
Best Place for a Party – Hosted my birthday party here last month in November - great experience. Joanna was a pro and was very accomodating to my group (and my last minute event inquery). We were given a reserved area that had plenty of room for all my guests with a designated server for the evening who stayed on all us to make sure all glasses were kept full. Everyone was able to get in but I'd recommend having your guests arrive on a Friday prior to 9/10pm-ish because it got VERY crowded after 10. Great place for after-work drinks though before the crowds came. Thank you Bar 675 - I will definitely be back!
A great place to kick back and chill... – I went to this bar on a Tuesday night and had a blast. The drinks and food were GOOD. In fact, before we knew it we lost track of time and were there for a few rounds. I loved the chill and laid back feel of the space. The cozy feel of the bar makes you forget that you're in NYC. Check out this place when you get a chance.
Great place but... – avoid heading there between the hours of 10:30pm-12am on a Saturday! I know most people that go out in the city on a weekend expect this but for a place that is supposed to be a chill spot in the MePa District, it's the one thing that reminds you that you're in the MePa District...get there after 1am and it's still semi-packed but no line! Last Sat (1/9) and the Sat before (1/2), myself and friends of mine on both days came in around 1-1:30 and it was still fun and semi-packed and no line!
Other than that issue (which becomes kinda major while waiting on a line in 15 degree weather...), it was good times! Food's pretty good, our waitress Devvi was great, DJ was pretty great (on 1/9), games to keep you entertained and if you can score a room or table, bigger bonus! I would go back!
A great place to hang out – The semi private alcove rooms with retro games and pool tables make it really unique. The door staff is super friendly, and the DJ plays great beats. Overall, it's just a really cool place to hang out. I wish it were bigger, but thats part of its charm
Kick back at this comfy, no-hassle subterranean lair. – Who says you can’t break with tradition? This MePa club is more rec room than VIP area, more relaxed than ridiculous, and more cute frat boy than B&T meathead. In short, 675 Bar is the complete antithesis of its clubby neighbors. But that doesn’t mean it’s a dive; on the contrary, the space boasts a game room, library, pool table, foosball area, and a hodgepodge of tasteful retro furniture. A menu of specialty cocktails (most in the $10 range) includes the refreshing Beggerman Thief (cachaca, celery and Chartreuse) and the spicy Algerian Typist (mezcal and harissa). Could this be the future of the Meatpacking District? We hope so.
Makings of a fun evening – This place is great. Went there on a Sat. night and had no hassles getting in. The staff was friendly and the drinks are very reasonably priced. But the best part was the individual rooms where each group can hang out. Each room is unique. One was like a library with couches, one had a pacman machine.....ours had board games. Or if you want you can always hang out in the general bar area as well which in itself is pretty nice. Overall '675' makes for a fun evening.
