Tues 6pm-1am (open for special events only)
Neighborhoods: Downtown, East Village
Had a very good time – Sue, the mc, ran a very professional open mic. She is a fine musician, and is warm and respectful to the crowd and "open mic-ers" )her term).
Good place to take a date, or meet new people, or both.
I'll go again
Chill Lounge – After living in East Village for 4 years, this was my 2nd time stepping into Nightingale Lounge. I kind of regretted not coming back earlier.
Nightingale is huge and on Saturday night they have live DJ spinning mostly hip hop and pop. Unlike neighboring bars and lounges, Nightingale is huge but oddly empty. They have couches around and drinks here are surprisingly cheap. I got a vodka cran for $6 and my boyfriend got a big Long Island Ice Tea for $11.
If you are looking for a lounge to hang out with your friends, where you expect good music, reasonably priced drinks, decent space and chill environment, Nightingale is just perfect.
nice atmosphere, good drinks, great music – i've gone to many lounges in the city, but this one especially on saturdays is really good. everyone dresses casual and it's crowd friendly. the seats are comfy , but the music is amazing!!!!!! the dj (i think his name's dj menu) plays such a variety of music that my girl friends, my brothers and i were dancing until it finished, which is 4am. i sweated so much!!! it was so crowded that it did take my friends a little while to get my drinks, but the girl bartender saw me and hooked us up. very pretty girl, too. i def recommend this spot, especially if you want to celebrate your birthday or just to party!!!
so-so – Nice name, place is kinda small, been there for a few bday parties. It only really gets packed when theres a party going on. When its packed be careful of the stupid step they have by the tiny seats. I've seen a bunch of people stumble from it.
wednesday, wednesday, wednesday – every first and third wednesday, this lovely laidback lounge hosts a cozy eclectic open-mic where up-and-coming talents do their thing. and that thing is hot.
stick around for the bartender's soulful acoustic stylings; that girl's got some chops.
East Village Lounge Excellence – Nightingale Lounge is a great place to lounge, party, dance, it's my home away from home.
Have a private party, walk in to a public party, entertain or be entertained, the possibilities are endless.
Friendly people, good prices, always changing atmospheres.
Editorial Review – Spacious lounge available for private parties, special events and birthdays.
Great Hunting Grounds – Very nice quiet place for some good hunting. Lots of naive prey here! ;-)
Had a blast! – came here to celebrate a friend's birthday and had a blast. liked the atmosphere, music was great, and drinks were yummy. I will definitely plan on having a party here in the near future!
Laid Back and RELAXED – This place rocks. Sometimes it's real crowded and sometime not as with all places. It has no cover, NO Jerk bouncers, people are laided back. Music is good and bathrooms are clean. Hey we all know it's not the place, it's the people (entourage) that you're with that makes the party. At this place you won't have to worry about rude and obnoxious people ruining your night.
