WARNING THEY DILUTE THEIR ALCOHOL!! – So I decided to give a new bar a try and this place got pretty good reviews.. I'm a recent college grad that goes out in the city every weekend and I used to bartend so I know a good bar when I see one.. I can see how this can be a fun bar, with the good DJ and all, but they dilute their alcohol. I told the bartender that my last $9 drink had no alcohol in it and so I saw him pour almost the entire glass full of tequila and a splash of sprite and the drink still only tasted like sprite. I know most bars dilute their alcohol but this is RIDICULOUS ... DO NOT go there unless you want to spend $9 on water
College Vibe Without 23 Year Olds – I love bars that play Miley Cyrus and allow me to dance my pants off - but hate being the only person in the bar that is in my mid-twenties, and has a full-time job. Gatsby's is the place that plays great music and doesn't make a 25 year old feel like they are the oldest person in the bar. If you want to listen to Black Eyed Peas with Footloose tossed in, Gatsby's should be on your to-do list. For the party-poopers, there is also plenty of seating so people can relax in between songs.
PARTY PARTY PARTY – Dont know about anybody else but I had a great time here last night.
Bouncers were friendly, music was pumping, bartenders were fast and the drinks were strong. What more can you want?? Oh yeah girls!! There were plenty, some girl was having her birthday party here and all of her friends were HOT.
Our waitress was drop dead gorgeous as well.
Had such a good time that im booking my birthday here!
Great place to hang out! – I went there with my girl friends and had a great time. Both the service and food were great. The sports bar had a lot of cute men..very unpretentious.
Aching for one star – Well my friend and I decided to try this place for a quick birthday meal. HMMMMM Where do I start??? Do I talk about the bug my sister found in her cosmopolitan (and the waitress at first insisted we still be charged for it). Or do I talk about the hot sauce that was mistakenly substituted in place of marinara sauce. We all ordered sandwiches and we were the only other group in the bar besides 2 other people and yet these sandwiches took almost an hour to come out. I thought I ordered lobster from the dock or something. Service was so horrible and we decided not to tip. Not only did this bitch a waitress think her service was great, she approached me to tell me that they work off of tips and that I did not tip her (UUM YEAA, cuz ya didnt deserve it)
Hated this place.....
Always an awesome night!! – My friends and I always end up stopping by this place a few times a month. Happy hour is always fun and chill and we always end up dancing the night away if we come late at night. We just love the atmosphere. The staff is really friendly. Great place in a great area... love it!!
fun times, good laughs – So I went to gatsby's the other day and I had a great time. I was able to watch my cardinals in action which is always good being in the big apple and I had beer that wasn't too expensive which is always something I love. The only drawback was there was no shepherds pie but the vast amount of choices for food made up for it. Check it out sometime, everyone loves it.
Fun place – What a wonderful time I had in Gatsby's last sat nite! Music was awesome, couldn't stop dancing! the DJ played one great song after another, including new tracks and old crowd-pleasers. The bartenders are hot and super friendly. I was surprised that I was served drinks so fast, considering the big crowd of thirsty drinkers of all ages! I didn't encounter not one rude person, everyone was super nice, including the security guys. Hard to believe that the bouncers could attack anyone, they seem very polite. I would strongly recommend Gatsby's- a lot of good-looking guys, friendly staff and cheap drinks- why not go? It's in SoHo!!!
Had a blast last night – We had a table reserved for my birthday party in the back, this place was so much fun, there was a DJ and he was playing a little bit of every type of music and he even took requests from us which was great! I forgot my purse in the bathroom I went up to the bar to ask if someone had found it my night was almost ruined, and they had it with all my stuff still in it, I was so happy! The place was packed and we danced the night away I will definitely be going back here again!!
I was part of the group of girls that SCARED (review below) is referring to and she is exactly 100% correct. I would NEVER EVER in my life go back to this bar. This was the most ridiculous thing that has ever happened (and I have lived in NYC for over 6 years). A HUGE bouncer (with clearly nothing better to do then harass a group of girls) came up to us and started yelling (for no reason). When one of us told him we were leaving, he said, “Then leave” and then pushed my friend against the wall. He pushed her so hard that she has a scratch and a few bruises on her arm. My other friend came to our friend’s defense and pushed the HUGE bouncer off of her. The bouncer then proceeded to pick her up and drag her out of the bar (as if she could not walk). He did this with so much power that he hurt my friend’s ribs! My friends were so scared of the situation that they were shaking and crying. The manager did NOTHING to help us out with this situation (just stood there like a huge moron). The bouncers that were standing outside just smirked during this whole time (even when a young man that was not part of our group walked outside and said “I just saw a huge bouncer attack 2 girls!”). Clearly this bar hires the WORST BOUNCERS IN HISTORY and then when the BOUNCER ATTACKS GIRLS they let it be, as if it is normal protocol. As a young woman I was terrified of this man. I WILL NEVER EVER RETURN TO THIS BAR. WORST PLACE EVER!!!!
