Great atmosphere and drinks! – I have been to this bar many times, with a bright and cheerful staff, and great selection of bourbon, my friends and I love to stop by. Weekdays have an early rush but calm down around 10. So if you wanna relax and chill out come by late. Judging by the last guys review and his first sentence... "I?ve frequented Gstaad a few times" clearly this person isn't aware of the english language and how it is properly used. And as a black male in the city, to say the bar is discriminating because they don't serve low budget liquor or beer is just lame and offensive to an educated african american. thanks for setting us back 30 years pal. i guess the mexican restaraunt down the street is out for it only having tecate and corona.
But anyway, if your looking for a mature crowd and high class drinks, gstaad is the place to be!
Will never return to this bar – I?ve frequented Gstaad a few times, and despite the dead scene and overall lack of professionalism, I find it to be a nice, under-populated space to have a drink with a friend. However, after my most recent visit I can say with certainty that I will never return. I already warned my friend of the poor selection of beer, so he wasn?t surprised when there was no Corona and no Heineken. So then he asked for Hennessey. Gstaad doesn?t carry Hennessey. How about Courvoisier? Gstaad doesn?t carry any type of cognac. How about Hypnotiq? No type of blended drinks. After settling on a rum and Coke, my friend, who happens to be African-American, informed me that Gstaad was a discriminatory bar. He?s been to quite a few bars that don?t carry particular drinks popular among certain ethnic groups, and Gstaad?s now on that list. I?ll never frequent this bar again, and I hope you choose not to as well.
great spot – I love this place. I think it might be my new favorite bar in NY. I was there a couple of weeks ago for a friend's birthday party, and we we all loved it. I feel like I've been to so many bars in NY recently that are way too crowded and that have been overrun by 24-year olds. The crowd at Gstaad was diverse and sophisticated (we were all commenting on this fact), and, while there were definitely a good number of people there, it was not too crowded. Beyond that, it's a beautiful space, and the ambience is great. The high ceilings are a plus, too....a rare thing in NY.
Best party in years – We celebrated my birthday at Gstaad on the 22nd of March and I had the best time ever. This is definitely not our first event here - we have been frequenting Gstaad for three years now and it has always been a whole lot of fun. But before planning my party my husband wanted to check out other places and nothing came close to what we wanted. Gstaad is spcacious, clean and even on a crazy saturday night there is enough room to easily move around. They have some fun cocktails. The staff is really nice, especially Jessica who is such a fantastic person. She was really nice to all my friends and me and went out of her way to make things special. I am definitely doing more events at Gstaad.
Great Service – I hardly ever write reviews, but after reading the ridiculous one just posted, I couldn't contain myself. It sounds like the people involved wanted to have a bad time and complain about something. First off, I've had parties there (good service and helpful management), The bar is neither dirty nor small, in fact it has super-high ceilings and is a gorgeous space. Secondly, if they wanted table service they should have checked with the management before, after all this is a bar. If they wanted party hats and cake they should have had a house party. And what tips me off that these people don't really know how to go out is the thought a $3 tip was appropriate for 5 drinks. For petes sake, at least a dollar a drink!
horrible management and service – went here with a group of friends for a birthday. the place is tiny, crowded, dirty, and looks nothing like the photos. there is only one table large enough for table service which was occupied. was told by nasty management that a bottle could be bought at the bar! which had no room --there is litterally 2 tables in the whole place! the bartenders were nasty and one had the audacity to complain about a 3 dollar tip given when 5 beers were bought! to top off the horrible night a small cake that we asked to obatain table service for to cut was confiscated --yes! confiscfated! we were told that 'cake' is not allowed there. they stole a small 6 inch cake. no one should go here ever!
Go here. – This place is great, especially if you enjoy skiing or snowboarding, as they project ski movies onto a large wall throughout the night. The bartenders are very cool & friendly, the management is excellent and the atmosphere is top notch.
Great time, great service – Stopped in on Thursday. Friendly, cute, little brunette served us. Great service, great drinks, great music. Definitely going to make it a regular stop.
need a taste of classy nyc without the pretentiousness and snobbiness of a velvet rope?
this is your spot.
especially if you want to throw an event here, anthony pace, the event coordinator, makes it seamless and none of your friends ever have a problem getting in. have a great time with close friends and acquaintances in a hot spot with hot music and a good looking crowd (not to mention some hot brunettes for bartenders).
will be back for more.
A stylish night spot offering warm woody modernism and lots of alpine cool. – The Scene
Sleek and chic as a designer lodge, Gstaad is apres-ski cool all night long. Although one wall of the lofty space is given over to trippy loops of snowboarders careening down slopes, the atmosphere still feels sophisticated. Witty touches like tree-trunk stools dot the front, and the bar makes ample use of the rest of the tree throughout. Large prow-like structures create seating areas and divide sections of the large room like user-friendly Richard Serra sculptures.
The serious bartenders know what they're doing and can mix an expert Manhattan, but Gstaad is really about good-looking people enjoying a good-looking space. Once party hour hits, the relaxed vibe heats up, yet the place manages to remain comfortable and fun. Each night, a different DJ spins for a diverse crowd of gays, straights, media insiders and just plain partiers.
