The supervisor Lonnie is a racist sexist pig. He called a patron the n word and told her to S*** H** D***.. He is very bold for such a coward. The management is also very dismissive and racist. People of color shouldn't patronize this bar.
sassy – great location, cozy atmosphere, perfect date spot. Very romantic. Ask for the key lime martini if its not on the menu. Soooooo good.
they also have some great apps, and I don't mean something for your cell phone
Awesome Garden – Stumbled across this great lounge while waiting to get into Yama last weekend. Went back again this week.
No attitude, very nice people,my date LOVED the drinks. Go early as the garden is small, grab a corner and hang out all night
Best Mojito – I have lived in NY for the past 12 years and cant believe I just found this place! The bartender suggested one of his latest creation "the CIBAR MOJITO" cant remember all of the ingredients,basil and spiced rum is the best I can do...but Im going back to find out! 2 fireplaces, cozy couches and the cutest garden,and get this..a polite staff. The bartender made me feel so comfortable while I was waiting for my lame 40 min late first date, even though he was very busy..nice touch. Great music too!
Going Downhill – My friend had a similar poor experience with a private party,. However, private parties not withstanding,I used to enjoy going to this place due to its chill ambience and clientele. The drinks are still good, but I have gone a few times in the last couple months, and the frat-element to the scene seems to be on the rise, and the atmosphere is more obnoxious than it is chill.
Great place to have a get together... – I recently planned a birthday get together at Cibar and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lenny, the manager, was very helpful and efficient both behind the bar and in greeting all my guests, making them feel welcome. The drinks are sooo good (yummy lemonade martini) and the food is surprisingly really delicious... Everyone that attended said they loved the ambiance, the laidback lounge vibe, and smoking garden... and I have to agree, which is why I chose to have my party there! If you feel like getting away from the throngs of NYC, I'd have to say this is the perfect place.
Great Martinis – This place has great martinis, they maybe pricey..but they are so worth it. Definitely well made. It's not the largest space, but it trendy and cool. Check it out.
Great place for midweek gatherings – The drinks are tasty, the atmosphere is fantastic, the seating is plush (if limited). It's a great low-key but classy option for gathering with friends after work.
A small and superb hotel bar on Irving Place. – In Short
With marble tables, an assortment of modern furnishings mixed in with love seats (by the open fire), exquisite tortoise-shell ceiling fans and a new boudoir-pink paint job, the bar at the Inn at Irving Place is the perfect blend of elegance and comfort. Its hidden bamboo garden in back could be the perfect summer spot--especially following a stroll down one of New York's most romantic blocks.
Don't listen to the negative reviews! – This place is great.....fabulous atmosphere, great drinks and very friendly and attentive service. The crowd is made up of locals, and the drinks are average priced for a martini bar ($12). This is a great place to have a few drinks after dinner with friends or with a date. Very romantic!!
