Could be the friendlies bar in NYC! – Is this the friendliest bar in New York? It sure is close! Dividing lines between one group, one table, fade quickly. Everyone is instant pals. Even the staff are quick-as-a-downed beer are at your table chatting away. If I lived around here, it would be my regular. Everyone in the place just seems like they're having fun.. .and they want you to join in with them! Food comes from nearby places and is not top notch... especially after the pizza places close at 11. But mediocre food is a small price to pay for instant pals. Brings a smile to my face just to think of the place! --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC Drinkers
One of my favorite bars – I've been here a few times with a friend that works around the corner, and it is a great place to kick back and relax. I love the dark atmosphere inside, and the bartenders are always nice. During the week it is never crowded or noisy...definitely the kind of bar I prefer.
Feel at home bar – Great place with eclectic mix of characters. Not pretentious, yet hip and stylish. Great DJ, Great garden and friendly staff. Felt comfort the moment I walked thru the door. Plenty of parking for us New Yorkers wealthy enough to own cars. Nice cocktail selection and generous amounts of alcohol in the drinks. I liked it so much, I am planning on throwing a b-day party at Fusion for my favorite girl. The owner is a prince.
The owner is really friendly - he even remembers people's names. – The owner is really great - very friendly and attentive. The front seating area is a great place to hang out. Cool vibe.
Best hangout to drink and talk and drink and talk and have fun – I love hanging out at Fusion. My husband and I can be there hours. It is very romantic and the staff very courteous.
Great Lounge... truly one of NYC's best! – Fusion is really one of the greatest bars NYC has to offer. Not sure what Allison was expecting, but you don't go to Fusion for the food (although from my experience -- even the takeout has been tasty); and you should know that table service is not reliable if it's busy. Just grab your drink and chill in the garden. Here's why you go to Fusion: great drinks (killer Mohitos), the warm and inviting atmosphere, and low-key yet very sophisticated surroudings. The bar staff is one of the friendliest I've ever come across (and I've been to many bars) -- not to mention the owner who is truly one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Everyone I've taken to Fusion has loved it... 10+++ need I say more???
bad bar patron, I guess........ – allison 718, did it ever occur to you that maybe you were the rude one or maybe even...OMG a "witch", cold fries, "oh my", go to a restuarant! It is a bar! You sound like you think that you are Paris Hilton. I have been going there for over 2 years, and it is the BEST BAR IN THE CITY.
Bad night, I guess – I wanted to like this place. At least I liked the *idea* of this place. When I was there, after work on a Thursday, we chose to sit in the back garden. It was full, as one would expect on a warm summer thursday evening. Problem was that the bar was terribly understaffed. It took a a good 15 mins. before anyone even came to take our drink orders, then another 20 mins. to get the actual beverages. Food was another disaster. Grilled chicken sandwich and french fries arrived cold. It was explained to us that the food was delivered from another restaurant, so what did we expect? Um, well I don't expect cold french fries, thanks. And I don't expect the waitstaff to give me 'tude.
Great Bar/Lounge – I stumbled onto this place a few months back and it has quickly become one of my favorite bars/lounges in NYC. Don't be fooled by the sign outside: the space is sleek and sophisticated, yet unpretentious. The bartenders are always warm and friendly, the drinks great and reasonably priced (esp. for NYC). Oh yea: the garden out back is also a real find; especially for your friends who still need to light up. Highly recommended!
Thanks for a good time, we'll be back. – My girlfriend and I recently had our engagement party at Fusion and we all had a great time. This was my second time there after having stopped by for drinks one night with a few co-workers. It's a swanky lookin place without the attitude and best of all the drinks are stiff. If you like bourbon, try the Southern Bang, it's on the drink menu, good stuff.
