“They always have great musicians and a nice atmosphere to have a few drinks.”
“Getting to the bar was a challenge the spot was rammed but the vibe was cool, bartenders are smokin and quite friendly and who ever they had behind that dj booth was AMAZING.”
“the music was wonderful, crowd pretty and even the food was good.”
“Not to mention their alcohol selection was minimal at best, and virtually every other person I talked to that night couldn't stop complaining about what an awful place it was.”
“Before I left, I had booked my own party here and will be back every weekend- its nice to find a place that doesn't take itself too seriously while booking great DJs and remaining packed with a great crowd- see you guys soon!”
“We will definitely be back here sometime soon, and I will recommend this place to everyone.”
“great music; great deal and the staff was cool; great for after work happy hour scene; not too crowded.”
“This place has some great advantages and some small disadvantages, it is free to get in, very nice good looking bartender girls that aren't stuck up and treated me nice, the place has good music and decent prices for a free nyc bar, the bad parts are that”
“the line did move quick, as they did a good job of entry, once inside, this cosmic like energy took over ; the place was jumping, as you walk in to the rear, the space opens and you get to experince this great music spot; fun to dance and drink; totally u”
INCREDIBLE DJ'S!!!. Wow. For once in my life, I am at a loss for words. I had heard about the Anchor, and people said it was a wild, rollicking good time, but I WAS NOT prepared for the music I heard in this little place. The quality of DJs they have here could easily fill one of the big box nightclubs, but instead we got to hear some of the best music I've heard out in awhile in an intimate, cool spot filled with hot people. I don't want to ruin the pleasant surprise I experienced when I came here, so take it from me- look for the unmarked door on the butt end of Spring Street- you will thank me later.
Awesome Saturday. We booked a party here after hearing GREAT reviews from friends and online...we were not disappointed. The DJs were some of the best I've heard in a long time...much better than at the big clubs. We came to dance and have a good time and thats what we did. There are no mean door people, the staff was cool and laid back, the bartenders were as kind as they were efficient, and the crowd was gorgeous. Looking forward to going back here with a smaller group next weekend!
Great place for drinking and dancing. Very cool place for dancing and late-night drinks. We usually go on Thursdays (always avoiding weekends in the city when possible), but was pleasantly surprised this past Friday when I stopped in with a few girlfriends. Place was packed, but not too packed- plenty of room to dance and unwind. We had some amazing cocktails and grabbed a comfy banquet in the back where we alternated between dancing and just chilling. The music, as always, was superb- and we spent most of the evening here. I highly recommend this place- one of the most un-pretentious, coolest spots in the city, by far.
Ridiculously Fantastic Staff. I had my 29th Birthday here on Saturday and it was stellar. Our waitress and the guys working with her took care of us extremely well, everyone on staff was awesome, and the doorman was quite literally the best. Cool crowd, solid dj, not pretentious at ALL but totally had the right vibe for a birthday event. Jason (the owner? manager? guy in charge?) was suuuuper easy to work with. I even had a friend forget his ID (he's 30) and they were cool about it. If you're looking for something inexpensive you probably won't be as happy as I was with it, but it was TOTALLY worth the price. Which to me, makes it a value. It was an awesome party and Anchor was perfect.
Fun on Friday!. My friend booked her 25th birthday party here, and originally I planned to just stop by, but ended up having one of the best times in a while. SHe had a section reserved and they gave us a free bottle of champagne- but the highlight of the night was the music- the DJ was simply amazing and we danced until we exhausted. Great looking crowd, staff was nice enough, and the door guys were friendly and even funny! Anchor, you're my new favorite place!
Stunning. I usually don't write positive reviews online. In fact, I admittedly use sites like this to rant about the terrible state of manhattan nightlife. However, sometimes I come across a place that renews my faith in this city that I have a love/hate relationship with. Anchor is one of those places. We called ahead last friday, expecting it to be dead like most places the week after new years, and they said they could accommodate us. accommodate us? understatement of the decade. Me and my girls got there and were immediately ushered into the most amazing shitshow/party I've seen in some time. DJ Price (one of my fav DJs!) was rocking a packed room of beautiful people. We were able to grab a table with ease and ended up turning out Anchor until four in the morning. I won't reveal what transpired throughout the evening, however I do recommend this place to anyone looking for a taste of real NYC. The music, the staff, and the whole place in general, was just stellar- I will 100% be back here and highly recommend it to all. who knew the best Friday party in manhattan was on the far corner of spring street? love this joint. kudos guys.
Friday. The Anchor has, what has to be, one of the best Friday night parties in the city. We booked an area for about 20-25 of us, and they did not let us down. Upon arrival, we were whisked inside by the attentive door staff, brought to a table on the dancefloor, and they even gave us a complementary bottle of champagne! This is when the crowd started rolling in...the DJ really turned it on and almost everyone in the place was dancing. Really great looking crowd too! The energy in this place is amazing and from the point of booking the party to the actual night, the staff was helpful and cool - and the party itself was one of the best I've thrown.
Believe the hype!. After reading all the great reviews on this and other sites like New York Magazine and Blackbook, I decided to give it a try and book my birthday here this past saturday without having ever been to the place. I heard from friends that they throw a wild party here, and like some of the other reviews mentioned, they did not disappoint! The music simply kicked ass all night- DJ Price, who I've seen at 1Oak and Tenjune was there playing hit after hit, and I danced so much that I was sore the next day (ok, may have been the 10 shots of Maker's Mark also). The crowd was hot, the dancefloor was packed and we partied until four in the morning. I fell in love with this place sometime around midnight, may have met my future ex-husband, and I will 100% be back here again. Thanks so much for helping me make some memories!
Fantastic Halloween Party.... ok...wow. I usually don't go to places I haven't heard anything about before, but we decided to take up a friend on his invite to a halloween party and wasn't expecting anything like this. Literally, from the moment we walked in, it looked like people were having the best time of their lives. There was full-on bacchanalian madness, the likes of which hasn't been seen since Dionysius himself staged his famous orgies and tore young maidens limb from limb in a wine induced frenzy! I've never seen so many people dancing and just having a great time. I had to check to make sure there wasn't a maenad working her ethereal charms on us! The music was superb and the drinks strong, and what was supposed to be a stopover on the way to a loft party turned into us dancing on the couches and drinking tequila like bandeleros until 4am. I will totally be back to this place. Anchor, you guys rock!!! A marvelous little spot, just off the beaten path...love it!
Love this place!. Really, really, really cool place! Loved the nautical theme, and the music was some of the most fun I've heard in awhile. One of my friends told me later that this place is known for their DJs, and I could see why- the girl spinning rocked it all night and kept the whole place moving- I mean, how often to you see a whole bar dancing and getting wild? And I mean the ENTIRE place! I genuinely had a blast, and I plan on coming back very soon. One thing to note: This place is not for the uptight. People come here to party and have fun and it gets crazy as hell! Don't be suprised if a complete (hot) stranger climbs onto your banquet and starts dancing. Amazing little lounge.
