classy and fun with hotties to spare... – I took some friends here before seeing a show last Thursday The happy hour prices were great and the bartender was hot, hot, hot! Attentive, sweet, and make a killer martini too. We had a great time here and after talking to the bartender, one of my friends was in love! lol
We went back again over the weekend and it was party central! Good music, fun crowd, good drinks. My friend swears he's coming back in a month just to go again! lol Definitely my new favorite HK hot spot :)
Good Times!! – This place is fantastic! I went two weeks ago on a Friday and really had fun. I've been to a lot of gay spots in the city and I liked this place more than most. The staff was nice. A hot blonde bartender served me yummy lychee martini with a handsome smile. The crowd was chill and friendly. The dj was spinning great music. Definitely my new hells kitchen stop. Well worth the trip uptown
BAD REPUTATION – WAITER : THE TALL CUTE WAITER HAS BEEN THERE ON 13 MARCH 2011 REALLY UNPOLITE,,, BEGGING FOR 1 DOLLAR PER DRINK,, BUT IN A RUDE WAY... SURELLY IF I AM IN A PLACE WHERE I PAY 10 USD FOR DRINK 1 DOLLAR WOULDNT BE A PROBLEM,,, BUT IS ALL ABOUT THE WAY U SPEAK...HE PROBABLY STRESSED WITH THE AMERICAN ECONOMY WICH GOES DOWN AND DOWN....
There was clearly a miscommunication. This customer thought that the bartender was picking favorites at the bar because he didn't understand the concept of having an open tab. He also asked what was a customary tip, as most people do. The waiter said typically $1 per drink. At that point the customer got angry and started talking trash about americans, our economy and creating a scene which regular customers we getting involved asking the bartender to through him out.
What! Child Please – What, child please! This is the double S… if you’re looking for good in good looking people honey. Everybody was outstanding the door man seen that I had some things on my mind he said come here and gave me the sweetest hug he said no shake just hugs. At that point you could have knocked me over with a feather. If you can’t have a good time there, something is wrong with your sensory connection, Straight or Gay if you don’t know and need to find out this Bar-tini Ultra lounge is it!
PS the doorman’s name is G, a hug from him is as good as the dam drinks LOL.
Get Over Yourself – I enjoyed the bar the first few times I was there, but now that it's become popular, it's annoying. They really need to get over themselves. If the bar is 70% capacity, don't make people, especially locals, wait in line. Or if you do, at least have the decency to draw the blinds so it isn't obvious you are making us wait in line for effect.
We at Bar-Tini are glad that we have become a local hotspot and that you have enjoyed your time there in the past. We are sorry that waiting in line might have been an inconvenience too you, However we have to maintain a line out side to make sure we ensure the safety of our customers and staff. Having a line helps the flow and gives more room for customers to get to the bar and order drinks, two; It Makes it easer for customers to check there coat in coat check and three; ensures the safety of the customers in case of an emergency or fire. Again we apologize for your wait, But we at Bar-tini want to create a safe and fun environment for all our patrons and staff. We hope you we visit us again soon and understand, we are not trying to seem like we are being divas when we hold a line. Thanks for your time.
Good Music & Cute Crowd – I personally think this place is the best in HK. Great drinks, music and good looking crowd. What more could you ask for? It can be a little bit crowded but despite that its an awesome place to have fun and meet new people.
Awesome night out! – My friends and I came here on Friday night and had a blast. I always have fun at gay bars, but this one was a spot you could hang out at all night. Great drinks, awesome DJ and great people. I'd definitely recommend it to those looking for a trendy gay bar in Hell's Kitchen.
A true neighborhood bar – Great neighborhood feel. It's like the "cheers" of gay bars in NYC, just with a much better looking crowd and barternders. Good music and drinks menu too.
Great Sunday Funday Spot – I stopped in this place for the first time last night. They had a fierce performer that turned my Sunday blues into laughs. Wasn’t too busy which made it easy to start conversations with the staff and others patrons. Excellent service by Sean. Great spot for a Sunday Funday!!
Will NOT go back – I went to Bar-tini last week with a few friends, and it was terrible. The service was awful - snobby and rude waitstaff, and the crowd - if you can call ten people a crowd - left a lot (everything) to be desired. Their drinks were way overpriced, and the atmosphere/interior was cookie-cutter. Completely unoriginal and uninspired. I'll be taking my business elsewhere from now on.
We are truly sorry that you had a bad time at Bar-Tini. I have never herd any complaints about our staff, the crowd, design or drink prices. If ever you have a problem with the staff in any bar you should ask to talk to a manager to resolve the issue. As far as the drink prices go we are pretty much the same as other local bars in the neighborhood, with the exception of some of the rare martinis that other bars don't make such as lychee martinis or mojitos are obviously going to be higher as fresh mint and lychees bring up cost. We would hope that you would reconsider visiting us, we realize that we cannot 100% please everyone. But we are dedicated to improving our business and are more than willing to listen to customers valid comments. If you have specific drinks that you think are too high or can give me details about what happened with our waitstaff i would love to hear your imput. Please email us at Bartininyc@aol.com.
Thanks for your time,
