“During the week I sometimes come to this place for a relaxed drink, with good music (the genre varies depending on the night) played at a volume that allows conversation and fun stuff on the televisions ("Reservoir Dogs", a boxing match, etc.).”
“The drinks were terrible: how hard can it be to make Martinis?”
“couple of Saturdays ago my friends and I came early and ate a good meal at a couple of the upstairs tables, then went downstairs and danced in a fun mob of people until two.”
“If you love music, hip hop old and new, wicked mixing, ridiculous diverse crowds and super chill fast bartenders - then you might want to throw your next get together here!”
“The atmosphere makes it both a great place to talk and hang out as well as get down on the dance floor.”
“The nasty bartender hastily grabbed the bottle of grey goose and started pouring it in, from about 2 feet away (what was she reenacting a scene from Cocktail?)”
“The manager was incredibly friendly and made killer drinks all night long!”
Go to physical therapy next day. I went here for my mom's birthday and it was like the best. I had reserved a table in advances and the service was very good. The music was ok. My mom really love it, she had to go to physical therapy next day.
Really quiet on a saturday night.
Arrived there at 1am on a saturday night and it was stonedead.
One DJ playing with one table occupied and an empty bar.
The music wasnt awesome and the interior was nothing special.
Misleading average grade of the reviews.

cool cool place. chill atmosphere. good prices. had a great time with my friends here!!
best bar in East Village. what a special place..this bar has it all.. I love this bar and all that it offers..
very friendly bar.
Cool bar, very welcoming. The girl working the bar, with the tatoos (should have found out your name) has got to be the coolest girl in NYC!
DJ later on, great tunes too.
Good times. Great bar in lower east side. Many people enjoy this hot spot for its crowd and music. I personally think that as far as bars in the LES this is by far the coolest
Best East Village spot for sure. Identity is by far my favorite bar in NYC. The staff there are awesome--Lawrence and Laurie will always make sure that you're having a good time. I had my 26th birthday there this year and we were very well taken care of--we had a table (no charge), free champagne, and great music. Identity is good on any day of the week. Sun-Wed are a little more quiet and intimate, although you can come in for Burlesque on Tuesday or Rock Band on Wednesday. Fridays and Saturdays are when the real party happens, with killer DJs and two floors open. Love this place!
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.
I recently celebrated by 28th (1/9) birthday party here....we had a great time there.
Lori - one of the best bartenders in NYC - hands down. DJ was great. All in all GOOD TIMES
CRAZY NYE minus the Drama!!!!!.
We recently had an open NYE party there with about 80+ people and I couldn't have found a better place! Lawrence, and his "it won't s@ck itself" T-shirt couldn't have set things up any better! If I threw a party on a deserted island and could pick 10 peeps, Lawrence would be in my top five!
The downstairs was a perfect space for everyone to dance and scatter, whilst the upstairs bar provided even more room for all the mayhem! Evelin (sorry if I butchered your name!) the sweetest bartender in the whole world, makes MEEEEAAAN shots and NASTY MARTINIS with sugar rimmed glasses! She was fast and so friendly and sweet to everyone! The space was perfect, everybody there was chill and was there to party!
AAAnnd music was OFF the hook! The DJ spun old school hip hop, and even turned down the music slightly downstairs so we weren't all screaming at the top of our lungs at one another! Priceless.
Overall, not only did this spot make one of the best NYEs, but this spot is going to be my regular haunts going forward. Tues sugar rimmed martinis, burlesque shows, and awesome music... WHAT?!?!?!
