“The music wasn't bad, but instead of paying five dollars to get in and five dollars for a beer, I would have had more fun with a case and some of my friends in my tiny apartment.”
“Go for the best hip hop and reggae music you'll ever hear at a local bar, that is if you're not afraid of a little sweat!”
“The crowd is diverse and always fun.”
“This place is great, while so many places in Manhattan go to great lengths to make everywhere look like they spent a million dollars on it, this place just focuses on the music.”
“Great atmosphere, great drinks, great music, and a great place to meet people I will be back.”
“And the bartender Gib is the best!”
“The bartenders are nice, though they need to start giving more free drinks, especially when you've spent a lot of money at the bar.”
“They played the best music all night long.”
Old School Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Reggeaton.
This is my favorite spot. The music is great. The cover and drinks are affordable for a lounge.
Before 10PM is half price drinks and no cover.
Hidden Party Spot. I actually never notice this place, until i spotted a line outside and can hear the music pumping from E. Houston St. Let me tell you once i entered I was in amazement how crowded and nice it was. The DJ play a variety of music........I will definilty come again
Trashy People. Don't recommend this place, they let all trashy people in here. Left after 15 mins because we were getting pushed around on the dance floor by these girls who were being jerks, they were just trying to start a fight getting in our faces. We went outside to leave and a few of the girls came outside and one s p i t in my friend face! Obviously, they were just trashy bridge and tunnel girls. Really ruined the night, we just wanted to dance...... too bad.
Best music. I came to bob a few weeks ago. Honestly from the outside it didnt look like a place i would particularly go into but i met some friends there and wound up staying till the place closed. They played the best music all night long. There was not one time that i sat down. And its hard to find a place that plays good stuff all night long. it is very tiny and it got real packed but it wasnt too bad. it wasnt all hot and stuffy in there and the drinks were pretty strong and not too overpriced. I will be there again this Friday. Me and all my friends, we loved it.
Great Drinks, Great Atmosphere, Great Location, Great Staff!!!.
I came to bOb on Friday, July 18 @ 7:30pm because I wanted to check the place out and decide if I want to have my party there!! Maaan, I ended up leaving at 2:00 in the morning!!! The music from the time I stepped into the venue was on point especially. They played R&B/reggae/Hip-hop/Old skool rap r&b classics. They even mixed in some Madonna and Journey in there!! Although the place was small, it wasn't uncomfortable and I am a big fan of original brick walls and they got'em. The drinks range from $6-$10 dollars, the crow was diverse and nice looking, people came into the bar DANCING!! Everyone was there to have a great time! There wasn't a bathroom line and there was enough seating because everyone was UP dancing!!
One of the highlights was when Fatman Scoop (HOT 97 on-air personality) was their just relaxing and did an impromptu "performance" LOVED IT!!!
Anyway I will be having my birthday there next week and I looking forward to it!!
Best music, Great staff, strong drinks. I just went to BOB last night with a group of friends and had THE BEST TIME!!! It's so rare now in the city to find a place where you don't have to deal with door issues, pretentiousness and can really let loose after a long week. Everyone was dancing to the amazing hip-hop and everyone seemed to be having such a good time. Such a great vibe. I highly, highly recommend if you just want to go out dancing and not have any worries. And the bartender Gib is the best!
THE place to dance. Great DJ - played all the hits and had people sweating. Drinks were a bit overpriced, but the music and dancing makes you forget about the price. It's a tiny space and gets really crowded, but that's what makes it fun. I had such a great time there - would definitely recommend it.
I Love Bob!. i've been to bob quite a few times an always have a great time! the music is perfect for dancing, the crowd is diverse, and it's totally not pretentious. it can get really tight and hot in there, especially on a Friday or Saturday, but you can still have a good time and shake ur moneymaker.
User review by gregorpb. Bob is a great, unpretentious lower east side club where you can go, let your hair down and dance. The bouncers and bartenders are professional, even friendly. The crowd is diverse and always fun. Unfortunately, the Saturday night DJ has trouble getting on his groove. After a playing a few good ones, he loses the crowd night after night. Inevitably someone tries to encourage and redirect him, but he responds only with attitude. Bob would be perfect if they hired a capable DJ.
Dayam. Came in from NJ to hit this spot up. Packed but fun, loud but all you want to do is grind. Deff a hot spot if you just want to chill, dance, or wile out. Deff a place to hit up.
