Upscale Yet Low Key Place To Be – Real great and affordable party for New Years Eve '11. Very upscale yet low key place. 5 hours of premium Open Bar says it all! Tickets are about $90 cheaper then most other parties on NYE, your wallet will thank you in the morning.
Cool place – Place is pretty good -- plenty of hot chciks and the music was off the hook -- got kind of crowded downstairs tho. will definitely go back with the crew again...
Fun Bar with inexpensive drinks and awesome music – I stopped by Gallery bar for a birthday party on Saturday night and it was so much fun! The DJ was great! He didn't play the current hits only; instead, he mixed in tons of old school hip hop with several current hits so we were all in the groove.
The drinks are about $7, which is very reasonable for a nice lounge/bar with people dancing.
I definitely will come back again for a nice night out!
If I could give it less than 1 star I would – I came here to celebrate my birthday with a large group of friends and will never return after the way we were treated. On 3 separate occasions, the same bus boy intentionally spilled buckets of water/beer/alcohol on myself and other members of my party. I understand it's a crowded bar, but this bus boy made threats and then proceeded to drench people in this beer/water- these were not accidents. The bouncer even had to kick the bus boy out for being rude and obnoxious. Then another friend went to the bar to get a shot and was given a shot with a piece of glass in it!!! Luckily he only cut his mouth and didn't swallow it! To top it all off, Gallery included a gratuity fee on the bill for each bottle we bought and then demanded that we tip them again on top of that!
Bottom line - Go somewhere else and do not let this place ruin your night.
Love the mix – Friend dragged me here on 4/20 for the Cheeba Cheeba party. Ended up having a blast with the tyku, it glowed green!! How perfect. Stalley was awesome, everything was on point. Will definiely be back on a normal night but no more free tyku open bar =(
I have never had this bad an experience – Called a week ahead to "reserve" a table for my birthday and committed to purchasing a bottle. In return I was promised a guest list which would get everyone into the bar. Sure enough, that night the bouncer and "hostess" refused to let anyone in that was on the list and made every single person wait in a line (was the coldest night of the year), claiming that the entire bart was "guest list only". Upon speaking with the manger it became incredibly clear that those in charge were incompetent and did not care in the least to make their customers happy. Every single reserved table that night encountered a similar situation, with one poor girl sitting by yourself after paying $300+ for a bottle and having all her friends stuck in line in the cold. I warn anyone who "reserves" a table for their birthday, that the "list" will not allow their guests to avoid a 30 minute wait in line. FYI, pleading with management, the hostess or any of the bouncers will not gain any favors. Hopefully one day they will realize its better to please their paying customers than to create the impression of false demand by making people wait in line for 30 minutes when the bar is empty inside.
Well Established Cool Bar – I love this place and will go back whenever possible. I love the layout and the cool decor. I feel like I am on top of the world when drinking and meeting people here. I like to bring friends too anfd everyone leaves happy. try it please.
Very cool spot on the LES – Among the ton of cool LES bars, GalleryBar is definitely one bar not to be missed. The space features really unique art, GREAT music and just a cool vibe.
Good vibe, bouncers not very nice – I like the bar, the artwork is really cool. It was very trendy and young, drinks were expensive....
AND IT WAS A TUESDAY??!!! – Walked by gallerybar, as its on my home, and i saw Al Franken giving a speech. (you know ,remember stuart smally from SNL?) He was very funny. I then decided to stay and had a better night out then any weekend in NYC The huge photos from the iraq war were sobering, but the crowd and the music was suprisingly great!
