Dead! – Went there this Friday at around 11:30 and it was dead. Completely. So much so the bartender laughed when we walked in. All of you Citysearch people who gave this place high ratings, quick question: Are you sure you were in the right place or do you just not like to socialize with others?
HAD A GREAT TIME, WILL BE BACK! – Since I live nearby, I've been to Batista a few times now. This is the place to be on the Lower East Side if you want to drop all pretense and hang out in a casual, relaxed spot with an authentic vibe that offers good music, friendly staff and a buoyant crowd. I've met many interesting people there. The crowds reflect the diversity of New York. I will definitely be back...
THE NEW PLACE IN THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS – Batista's has this atmosphere of welcome that your not just at a BAR having a drink amoung strangers.. its more like be amoung friends and family..
With a varity of different Dj's that come and give you a taste of music for you to endure..
word saw matt dillon at this awesome hip spot – so i saw MATT Dillon playing congas with the band here. how cool. and they have great drinks. went for a friends party. awesome.
I love this Place!! – I was out with some friends the other night and they took me to Batista. I live a few blocks over and I had no idea this place existed! I am so happy they brought me here because I loved it! It was so cozy inside! The staff was friendly and the drinks were so cheap. We danced all night until the bar closed! No one wanted to leave!!! I cannot wait to come back!!
best apple martini ever!! – My girls and I went to this place prior to our girls night. I was so impressed with the service and the drink menu! I would recommend this place to all. Unfortunately its out of the way for me. oh well... I'll find myself there this wkend.
Sexy Spot! – Had a great time. Love that it is hidden! Almost feels like a steal that we found this place. Bring a date here, you will not be dissapointed. The atmosphere will make you seem like a GOD among men... Good luck, play boy...
Great but Creepy!!!! – I arrived at Batista this past Saturday for a friends Bday party. The space is very cozy comfy and the music was great. the staff was very friendly. The only issue i had with the place was the lack of booze, and problems with them accepting credit cards midway through the evening. On a cold and rainy night i was told to go to the atm to get cash because the machine was broken. There was also a guy that i was that he was the owner that was so creepy. I dont know what he was on, but it made for a very uncomfy night when he popped in. Overall, i had fun and will be back. Beware of the jacked up creepy guy. Oh yeah, it is close to trick or treat. Iguess he got his treats early..
Awesome place – Batista's is in a class by itself. DJ is great, music is awesome, something for everyone whether it be hip hop, rock, old school. Crowd is versatile as well as the bartenders - very friendly, very cool. Will definitely be back.
Great times – Great place. No cover charge, drinks at reasonable prices, and the DJ was off the hook. I found my new favorite place to party in lower manhattan. Cant wait for the weekend.
