Bar? anyone – I don't like bars. I find the false cheer and immodest prices to be a bit of a bore. Call me a misanthrope, but I hate standing around making bad conversation with drunk people. It is rare to find me in one, and even rarer for me to enjoy it.
Which makes my love of Keybar all the more unusual. The place is full of generally interesting people. The set up could not get more eclectic.
But my absolute favourite part of the Key experience are the jams on Friday and Saturday nights. It is one of the coolest and least known events in the city.
Thanks for your absolutely honestly cool opinion. People like U make KEYBAR to be KEYBAR. Cheers Gyuszi & Attila owners
My favorite bar in NYC :) – I've just had a great time there without exception. I used 2 go there almost every weekend (unfortunetly I've moved out of New York, that's the only reason I just used 2....) Thank U guys 4 all the good memories, friendships end everything. I hope 2 C U soon :) Maris
Best Neighborhood Bar... Even If It's Not Your Neighborhood! – Keybar is pretty much my favorite bar in the world. The bartenders are amazing, the music is live and different every night (Fridays always 70s/80s/90s, Saturdays always House), the drinks are great, and the crowd has some of the most interesting people I've met in New York.
Weekends at Keybar are busy yet cool, but the other 5 nights of the week is when Keybar is an intimate lounge where one can meet new people, take a date, or just chill and enjoy being alive in the city.
Not what i had expected – I had decided to come here with my sister and brother who came out of a town. we stumbled by and remembering i read about them on here i thought why not. i guess we had came on a bad night because the staff was very rude. i get it still new york but never had i seen service like this it took forever for our drinks to come and one of the bartender told me she had to add her tip on our check. excuse me tip is voluntary . dont get me wrong the place looks nice but the owners need to get a whole new staff until that happens i dont wanna come back here and i sure will tell people not to go here either.
My name is Gyuszi Bertok. I m the owner of Keybar. Could you let me know the name of the bartender or her look and when this happend ,or some identification becouse I want to take care this issue. My email is gyuszikeybar@yahoo or you can call me 646-554-5982
I appiciate your feedback
Thank you in advance, Gyuszi
AWESOME – KeyBar is an awesome place. They have great drink specials if you get there before 10 and they have a nice selection of very tasty shots. Met some cool people when I was there and the bartenders were top notch. Will definitely be back
Great review thank you.

WORST bar I've ever been to – This bar is full of people who like to talk about themselves. The service is horrible. The drinks are overpriced and disgusting. NEVER GO HERE.
We all have the right to form our own opinion. I can not stand self-absorbed people either, but we are all different and that is the beauty of life. Probably you arrived after 10pm because we have a 2for1 happy hour on any kind of drinks till 10pm every day, which is the best deal in the neighborhood. I m sorry if you experienced "horrible" service, it is not our goal to provide that.
After all, every feedback is good to have to know what to improve.
I'll do what I can.
Thanks Owner Gyuszi
Best Crew in The City – Best Place Ever! :)
Thanks for your amazing variety of drinks and mindful bartenders and longest HAPPY HOURS!
I just can't wait those Friday nights... :)
Great place – Every time I've been here has been a guaranteed great time.
The owners, bartenders, and crowd are very friendly. Always great music and cheap drinks. Especially loved the Wednesday 80's/new wave/rock and house mix party.
happy hour... – went out there friday right after work, it was empty...but that would soon change. the bartender was friendly, answered our questions and make some strong drinks. after abouyt a half hour, more people began to trickle in, it was a chill crowd, they play good music, but its not so loud that you can't have a conversation with someone. i really had a good time here, its a great happy hour spot...and the 2for1 drinks go till 10..whats not to like?
Love KeyBar!! – KeyBar is a great place to hang out with friends, meet new people or just to have a drink. They have delicious signature drinks and shots and the people who work there are really friendly. The scene and ambiance is also really cool. Highly Recommended!
