Great bachelorette party! – We started my friend's bachelorette party night at Mug. Michael the owner was so helpful! He had the back corner of the lounge reserved and we had excellent service! Perfect place for large parties or just a chill place to have a drink! Love this place!
Horrible Experience! Ruined my event... – I booked a private party in honor of an artist who passed away. I was promised the back room for 3 hours to show a video and have people speak. I spoke to the owner, Michael, on the phone and was assured everything was set and I could send out invites. Three days before the event I called just to check on things and was told the room had been booked by a wedding reception who paid for an open bar and that we could not have the private room. I was told I could go to another nearby lounge for the start of our party and then return to mug lounge at 10:30 after the wedding reception was over. Our entire party walked over promptly at 10:30 carrying trays of food and we were told that the other party had extended their hours and that we could not come inside. When I spoke to the owner I was told that "business is business" and unless we could pay for an open bar there was nothing he could do. The other party was also extremely rude and a fight almost broke out between my guests and theirs because they were telling people rudely to get out of the club when they were just arriving for the party and had no idea it had been double booked. The owner was totally rude and unapologetic to me about ruining my event. I read somebody else's review here about the owner doing the same thing on another occasion and should have listened. In the future I will pay more attention to reviews! Do not ever book a party at Mug Lounge. Total disappointment
Best lounge ever – I have become the biggest fan of Mug and one of its most frequent visitors! I had gone to a friend's birthday party here in March and was so shocked I'd never been before! The place is super fun with a great bar area, super friendly bartenders and then a separate room for dancing/lounging. Not only does it not get crowded, but it's also a large enough space that it could handle the crowds. This is the ultimate party spot and I almost think I shouldn't post this review so it stays my secret little gem. I recommend this place to anyone looking to kick back a few drinks, enjoy some reggae, hip-hop, top 40's tunes, and dance their booties off. No matter what you're in the mood for, Mug caters to all.
I love this place! – Mug Lounge is the best! I found it a couple of months ago walking down the street. It is fairly close to my apartment so I come here all the time now! It is a great place. I love the mis-matched sixties style furniture. They have great wines and top shelf liquors. The staff is friendly and they remember me every time I come back! It is the perfect place to sit back, relax and have some drinks!!!!
Best Lounge around – I love driving into the city from Long Island, and I always know that there will be great people and conversations at Mugs. My friends and I can always find a great hot spot but end our Saturday nights at Mugs. If we are around during the week or early on the weekend we end up at Mugs. The music is always good, and the owner and his wife always treat us well. Stop off and enjoy a comfortable hanging spot!
Great place to drink and relax with friends – You might not notice it at first as you walk along 13th St at Avenue A, but go inside Mug and you'll find a great place to relax and drink with friends. A few buddies and I stopped in last Wednesday night. We were able to find a comfortable corner for everyone to relax in. The $4 Red Stripes where just what we needed after work. The Reggae music was chill and just loud enough that we could enjoy the beat but still talk over it. After a few rounds we got hungry. They were serving amazingly good Jamaican jerked chicken for Happy Hour so we didn't have to buy any dinner. We used our cash to buy a few more rounds instead. After a while, some ladies showed up and we ended up having a little party in the lounge! It was the perfect night in the East Village. We'll be back for Reggae night.
Avoid for Birthday Parties! – I booked my birthday party at Mug over two weeks in advance. The woman I spoke with was very accommodating and flexible with the party plans. The only requirement was a deposit to the owner to guarantee we would show up. I went to the bar during the owner's "working hours" SEVEN times over the course of the next week and a half to try and deposit the money, and every time I was told that the owner was not in, and that I would have to come back another day. After each visit, I called and made sure that nothing was going to be messed up as I had already sent out the invites, booked the DJs, etc. and they assured me it wasn't a problem. After my last unsuccessful visit, I called again, and was informed that someone had walked in that morning, put down a deposit, and now had the space on my night. They were totally UNAPOLOGETIC about it and left me without a venue THREE DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY. A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT. I recommend steering clear of this venue if you want somewhere reliable to throw a party.
Place where you can get relexatoin. – My friends and I kinda ran into Mug by accident when we were out in the Village. The drinks weren?t expensive and the wine list was really good. It?s got a cool, relaxed vibe?small, posh but friendly.
Run out its charm – Bad Bad Bad, I'll say no more clikish and fedish, won't to be's go elseware. thier are more nicer plces then this one if you be "lucky", you may get muged on the way there to the east east east .....
