Good alternative to Sidebar douchery – Good place to talk and hang out for drinks. More of a lounge than a restaurant. Dimly lit and cozy couches. I prefer coming during happy hour for the $5 margaritas. The backyard is amazing in the summer...wish it was heated for the winter.
Hungry Models! – As everyone knows Fashion week is super busy for models. After one of my shows me and some of the other models were looking for a place to get food and have a few drinks to unwind. Someone refereed us to Belmont Lounge. The food was amazing! Yes models do eat!! lol Their cocktail list was pretty awesome too.
Everyone had a fun time. When Im in the area I would def come by again for a drink ;)
Sweet Spot!!! – A friend recommended Belmont lounge to be a while back....last week I decided to check it out! Last Friday I went in for happy hour then ended up coming back later that night to check out the night party. My friends and I had so much fun! The venue is cute, service was impeccable and with yummy food and drinks! I would def come back again! Thank you Belmont lounge!
Friendly Staff, Nice bar, good food, convinent location – I just moved to NYC about 4 months ago, and have been on the look-out for my new 'regular' hangout. I live on E. 16th st. and as I was exploring my neighborhood I came across Belmont Lounge (located @ E. 15th) I went inside to check it out, and was very surprised at the amount of space there is. I had a drink, talked to some of the employees & instantly felt welcomed and comfortable. I now go here every Monday w/ a few girlfriends and feel like family!
Great happy hour!! – I came in here after work to eat some bar food (you must try the nachos with chicken! They are amazing!!) I pass by Belmont everyday before & after work, and until recently had never been inside. The bar itself is really big, and its really cute. But, more importantly the drinks are cheap if you go between 4pm and 7pm for happy hour- I recommend stopping in after a long day at work.
Reggae Sunday's bringing it back to the essense – I've heard a lot about Reggae Sunday so i decided to give it a try............The music was great playing all the underground reggae song some places are scared to play..........It can get overly croweded, but due to large demand things like that happen..........You definelty can get your "Dutty Wine" on.............Mix crowd i love it......will be back again.............
we had a great time!!! thank you guys!!! – last week a bunch of my girlfriends and I got together for a school reunion and decided to have it @ Belmont Lounge...
Our waitress was great and the music was just right...
One of the good things that Ive noticed was that they have an extensive food selection, not your typical bar food, and their wine selection is impressive. we went through 3 bottles.
someone there knows a thing or two about wine. as the night went on, after a few drinks we were able to dance to the groovy beats. and us smokers didnt have to deal with the bitter cold, we were able to escape into the back pattio. all in all we all recomend this place!!!
In Response to UWSNYCGuy's Review of 12/14/08 – Hi I'm the GM of Belmont Lounge and here what happened about that incident. This was on Saturday December 13th 2008, this gentleman's friend called few weeks before and made a reservation for his 40th birthday party. When the event coordinator made the reservation, he was promised a couch and a booth. On the set day, the birthday boy came in but without his friend that made the reservation. Upon request, I directed them towards the couch and the booth that was reserved for them, he turns around and tells me that he was guarantied all the 3 couches. mind you that in the whole venue there are only 3 big couches that seats 15 people each, also there was a party of 80 people that had on the same night booked the two remaining couches for a total of $2,500.00 in bottle service. So I told him that the other 2 couches were booked a month in advance and even showed him my reservation book where it says that only 1 couch and 1 booth were reserved for him. He refused and stated yelling and even went over to the other couches and ask the other customers to get of the couches, that is when I went over to him and told him that he could take his party somewhere else. Because to me that was a total disrespect for my establishment. Nowhere in NYC lounge or nightclub you can go and occupy all the major tables without a minimum tab or bottle and bottle commitment. We were even nice enough to give you 2 tables without any bottles or tab commitment. And by the way the comp bottle of Veuve yellow label, I'm the one that sent that to your table not a waitress because I felt that no one should get into an argument on the birthday eventough you were beeing totally disrecpectful to me, my staff , and our establishment. A waitress cannot comp a bottle without my approval. Please know that I do not like to disrespect other. I'm posting this so that people that read your review can read this one and judge for themselves.

Crowded but Fun (Kinda) – Went to this place on a Sat. night with a bunch of girlfriends. The place was PACKED. They played really fun music, but there really wasn't any place to dance or enjoy it. They MAKE you check your coats at the door, which costs $$. The crowd was mixed -- a lot of very young girls and some sketchy older guys, but nothing you wouldn't find at most bars in union sq. The bartender Alec was HOT and awesome!!! We didn't really deal with any of the waitresses, but the bathroom line was absolutely ridiculously long, and stretched through the bar area, making it even more crowded. All in all, we had a pretty fun night. I wouldn't recommend this place over any other similar bar in the area though.
Awful, Poor Service, Yelling – From start to finish, at least the Belmont Lounge is consistent. That consistency comes in the form of mismanagement, rudeness and an overall sense of the customer being taken for granted.
What was supposed to be a simple birthday celebration with 40 people and three reserved couches turned into one couch with bottle service (at this type of place- who are they kidding?) and a screaming match in the middle of the lounge. Totally unprofessional and a bad attitude.
The waitress comped us a bottle of champagne which was a nice gesture but it would have been a lot easier to just honor the original agreement.
I will also be consistent in the future and avoid this place for the rest of my life.
