Just go somewhere else. – Great place to go if you're drunk and don't see the sticky bar and the disgusting toilet. The Guiness tasted as though it had seen better days and they didn't have any Murphy's.
**BEST IRISH PUB IN NYC** – this bar has EVERYTHING your looking for, GREAT staff, FUN atmosphere and FANTASTIC prices!!!!! this is a bar where u cant help but have a GRAET time! i reccomend this place to EVERYONE i kno!!!
Poor Customer Service and No Food (dispite the appetizer menu) – Came highly recommended by our concierge. However, we were very disappointed. We just wanted a lite bite to eat and some beers. We got the beers but we had to get them from the bartender ourselves even though the cocktail waitress passed us a dozen times. Once the music began, we left after waiting 45 minutes for our mozzarella sticks that never came.
Seedy watering hole – If you are in the mood to drink with little atmosphere and the standard, but slightly more worn, feel of an NYC Irish Pub, this is the place. There's always a bit of a smell, but once you get over that, you're guaranteed to be joined at the bar by some other folks drinking away their troubles. Food's not really worth the effort - stay focused on Mr. Jameson.
My favorite bar – Desmonds is my version of Cheers. The bartenders are lovely people, there are regulars that you know will be there every day to talk, and of course there are the guests of The Clarion hotel that wander in for a pint away from home. It is the heart that makes Desmonds my favorite bar, if you are looking for a lemondrop and cushy seats you are out of luck...but if you want a homey atmosphere this is the place.
Love this bar – Great after work bar which also has live music a few nights a week. NOT TRENDY like it's reviewed as, but it's a good old fashioned irish pub with great staff.
Two Different Bars – Desmonds is really two different bars. During the day and on most weekday evenings its a no-nonsense regular bar where you can have a drink and chat with regulars and the bartenders. On the weekend evenings it transforms itself into a band oriented college style bar. The drinks are reasonably priced, the staff is great, and the food is surprisingly good.
Great fun – My friends and I fell into Desmond's at the end of my hen party (bachelorette party). What a perfect way to end a crazy, drunken evening! The staff were very friendly, as were the rest of the customers... although maybe that's because I was handcuffed to an inflatable doll!
a nice surprise – I too thought this was a dive bar....man, was I surprised! Lot's of young people, bands playing cover and original music....overall a great time & good atmosphere. This is not a place to go if you're in to renting limos to impress...that's what SoHo is for. This is unpretentious & just a plain old good NYC bar.
Young at Heart – My roommate and I stumbled into Desmond's for the first time last weekend at 3 in the morning and were more than pleasantly surprised. A live band had just finished playing and the place was packed with lots of attractive women. Upon further investigation these women turned out to be students at the art institute around the corner. HOT YOUNG GIRLS and cheap BEER!!! Have I died and gone to heaven???
