great music, great crowd, drinks a little watery :( – i had a lot of fun at stay, the music selection isnt too pop oriented and they play a lot of unique stuff. the crowd is great very attractive people. my only complaint is that is suspect that there may be a bit of water added to the mixed drinks, they tasted a bit diluted...
Stay – Great place!...been open for years and always stop by when I'm in the area. Good music and crowd is the usual.
HORIBLE EXPERIENCE – Parking Sucks..Over-priced , watered -down drinks..Got very hot inside.. Shared bathroom was terible and absurd..VIP area in basement was horible and NO hot chicks at all. Bartenders were friendly though but Weird how about 40+ reviews here were positive.hmmm..fishy
two words..DON'T STAY
Great place – I just had my sister's surprise party at Stay and it was perfect! The event planner was great to deal with. She made sure we didn't have to wait on line when we arrive and that we had two large tables reserved since we had over 50 people. Our waitress took care of us all night. Couldn't ask for me...thanks for making it so easy!
Great birthday after party at Stay – I had a birthday gathering for about 15 people at Stay this weekend - the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful as I was setting it up. The place is intimate and fun...the DJ got better and better as the night went on. All my guests had a great time. We will definetly go back!
Great Music & Lots of Fun – I recently hosted my birthday party here- it was great! Rob was very helpful and accomodating. The drinks were good and the music was awesome- one good song after another! The place was very nice but it did get a little hot once more people came in. Overall, it was great and I would definitely go there again!
SENSUAL AND SMOOOOOTHE!!! – I recently had my Fundraiser event at STAY and it was fantastic!! The crew, Rob, Lance, Zargo, Zasha were amazingly kind and accommodating. The guests loved the atmosphere and the drinks were incredible. I love this space and I would say it is a perfect location to get cozy on a first date , have a party with your close friends or have a business social event. It's sensual and warm. And trust me I will be back as I'm sure many of my guest that attended for the first time. STAY makes you want to STAY. :-)
Potent Drinks – I was referred to Stay from a coworker who had a drunken escapade worth remembering. Making the reservation was easy and had no complications at the door. By 2am I was floating after drowning in cafe patron shots. Thanks! Goodtimes!
Amazing – I'm shocked that the LES has such a hidden gem. I booked my 28th bday with 20 friends and had a blast. What's great is there's no hassle at the door,your guests get priority, and a snob free enviroment. The only downfall was a friend of mine couldn't get in with shorts. I'll be back for sure.
nothing special and overpriced – So lets get realistic. I've been to Stay three times in the past year and its one of those places which gets worse each time you go. I consider the LES to be the dingiest area of Manhattan and I go there for good deals and sloppy drunk fun. Stay randomly thinks they can charge $10-$15 per drink even though its just a dive bar on Houston Street. The bartender gave me attitude when I refused to pay my $100 tab for 7 drinks. It was totally absurd. The downstairs "VIP" area is a windowless basement with low ceilings and after 10 minutes in there I need air. I would not recommend this place--it will disappoint.
