You really can't go wrong with great happy hour specials but what makes this place so unique is the crowd.. Everyone seems to be having a great time and the staff treats their guests with respect and kindness. Is that unheard of in New York City? Yep, sometimes.

The specials range from Sangria to Domestic and Premium Beer. The $5 mixed drink special is sure to please any of your friends as well.

Make sure you stay a little later to enjoy their dance party music especially if you are a "I'm feeling the beat" type of person. Just make sure you aren't offended by soft porn. Haha, just go and you will see!

Obivia is a fantastic place to host a party!!! Michael and Clare are easy to work with and accommodated me for two parties in the last year. We had the exclusive VIP area with a private entrance. They gave us free champagne (and a couple free shots for the hostess :)). Nice leather couches, great music by live DJ, delicious drinks (try the house drink "Obivia"). The vibe is very chill and friendly (kind of rare in NYC nightlife). We were dancing all night long. Everyone had a blast and both of my parties were huge hits! (The first party had about 50 people and second had about 100, and they opened up the curtain to give us more space.)

I have seen very few venues on CitySearch with so many rave reviews, and I can say with confidence that they are legitimate, honest and accurate! Consider Obivia for your next party... Also, they apparently have a great weekday happy hour...

Pros: yummy drinks, fun non-pretentious ambiance, great staff

Cons: on the small side for a larger party

I set out to find a venue for my boyfriend's birthday that offered a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere, great cocktails and finger food for about 50 people. I wanted to pre-purchase food while my guests would buy their own alcohol. After an exhaustive search (I heard everthing from a $1,500 minimum just to reserve a seating area to my crowd might be too "ethnic" for the clientele being served and there might me a problem with entry for all of my guests -wow), I was genuinely amazed that I couldn't seem to find a trendy venue that valued a captive audience from a party. I hesitated because I frankly was unimpressed with the pictures I found, but was eventually swayed by strong reviews.

I spoke with Clare at Obivia and she invited me to come into the lounge. Once I saw the space, I was very impressed. I loved the intimate setting of the space. I reserved the front portion of the space, which consists of comfy seating. It was required that I meet a $300 minimum to reserve the area and I used most of it to order food ($300 in NYC is NOTHING!).

The night of the party was spectacular. I was slightly taken aback by the coat check fee, but it was cheap (I just wish I'd known about it). However, we were informed that we'd been upgraded to a separate section in the back, which was huge and exclusive (mind you, way better than the front space). We also received complimentary champagne and SUPER attentive service. Everyone from the bouncer to the bartenders to the waitress were amazing.

The party quickly filled up and guests loved the music, the tasty cocktails and the food. A server passed food on trays at my request. I also asked the staff to put birthday cupcakes on a tray for me. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had put the cupcakes on this amazing wooden serving piece, complete with candles (I didn't even bring candles). They even changed the music just for the presentation.

We were exhausted by the end of the night when everyone left. As we sat there, a waitress came and thanked me and gave me free drink coupons for a future visit. I am a Native New Yorker and have never had such amazing, attentive service, great food, better drinks, fabulous presentation, and a trendy venue, all for such tremendous value. To Clare and ownership, keep doing what you are doing! I will definitely be back to support Obivia and make sure you stay in business!! Many venues could learn a thing or two from you.

You will not go wrong here. And, yes, I loved the soft core porn on the televisions. If it offends you, please feel free to step into the year 2010. They show worse on ABC prime time TV.

I just had my Birthday Party at Obivia this past thursday, 5/28/09. I called 2 days before the event to reserve a section & Mike called me back to confirm the reservations & he said he would send us shots on the house since its my birthday. He reserved a section for us by entrance.
We had the whole sofa & group of chairs that wrapped around the candle lit table all for my party. There was a bucket of 10 shots on the house waiting for us on the table.
The Lounge has brick walls with candles, just BEAUTIFUL! Happy hour was fantastic, half price on drinks, $12 sangria pitcher. Drinks were awesome! the food were also great, we had the mini burgers, chicken wings & potato wedges. All very good.
They also had free malibu rum tastings (shots) with 3 different flavors, we tried them all. Our server kept coming back to give us more free rum tastings.
I forgot our server's name, she was fantastic! our drinks & food just kept coming. She was very attentive and quick! but everyone that works there were fabulous, accommodated to everything we asked for, very friendly
staff!!!
The lounge is beautiful, great music with a dj, great party planner, food & drinks for Happy Hour were fantastic & most of all, the Staff & server were superb!
I live in the city & I've planned many parties and Obivia was definitely the best one!
Thank You Obivia and the Staff for making my Bday Party as easy & smooth as possible. 5 STARS!
xoxo! Sherry

Pros: GREAT HAPPY HOUR DRINK & FOOD SPECIALS, FABULOUS LOUNGE

Cons: NOTHING, MY PARTY WAS PERFECT!

I called Claire at Obivia to make reservations for a table to celebrate my husband's birthday on a Friday night. She offered to waive the table service fee and also when she heard that it was his birthday she promised to have a bucket of shots waiting to greet us. The ambience was really warm and friendly. Claire came over with a welcome shot to do with me and my husband which was a nice personal touch. It was not too crowded, but was full enough for us to feel like it was a happening spot! My friends and I had a really relaxing night and the waitresses were very attentive. We had awesome service. The music was a tad bit too loud. We had to scream to be heard. It was hilarious watching a soft core p*rn movie on the TV screens... Would highly recommend their Vodka Blueberry Martini....Will defnitely go back there!

Obivia may be the coolest place in SoHo! Clare is always personable and the entire staff are willing to make you feel at home.

Enjoy the huge bar selection, or perhaps an incredible menu. They make the very best Grilled Cheese Sandwich you will ever get in your life....but they took it off the menu, if you are nice to Clare, she might just get it for you. Trust me on this, it is to die for!!!!

The location is easy to get to from two directions, oh and btw, they show very entertaining DVDs late at night on their monitors.

Whatever the occasion, make sure Obivia is on your list of stops!!!!! And please be nice to Clare!

Last weekend I wrote a review of the bar that was not flattering. Myself along with my guests had had a bad experience with the bar. We had arrived late and where notified that they were on "last call". We ordered and to make a long story short were rushed along to finish our drinks.
While the manner in which we were treated was certainly not "customer focused." I am impressed with the manner in which one of the owners has subsequently handled the situation. Mike called me personally and while not making excuses he did not entirely agree with my characterization of the incident. Nonethe less, I am satisfied with the manner in which he handled the situation and his attempts to "make things right." His assurances as to instructing the staff to avoid a repeat is reassuring.

I just had my 27th birthday party at Obivia and it was AWESOME!! I?ve been having birthday parties in NY for some time and they?ve always followed the same format: get a table, tell your guests, have a waitress and hope for the best. I followed that same format at Obivia and it far surpassed my expectations! Our server was so very attentive and neither my guests nor I ever had to wait for a drink. Additionally, our server did a great job of avoiding ?tab? trouble, or sticking any one person (i.e. the bday girl!) with the tab, by seamlessly taking everyone?s order and keeping track of who ordered what in the computer. Aside from the logistics, we were met by a complimentary bottle of champagne on our table, and Clare (Obivia?s event planner) met me and my guest with a shot before we even had time to check our coats! The music was great, and even though there wasn?t a dance floor, I danced all night. The drinks were extremely tasty and unique, and were also quite potent. It was all and all, a really great night in an era where it is SO hard to find a fun, classy, yet chill environment that won?t break the bank, or that isn?t crawling with undesirables with too much attitude! THANKS CLARE!!!

About a month ago I hosted a baby shower for a friend at Obivia. Even though it was not my first choice it worked out perfectly- the lounge in the back is beautifully decorated with plush chairs, low antique tables and soft pink curtains. Perfect for a small intimate gathering of about 18 ladies and a few small children and enough space to move around and open gifts. Clare and Michael were so accommodating, they actually opened up early on a Saturday just for our event! The food was excellent- we ordered several selections from the hors d'oeuvres menu (chicken skewers, shrimp, tomato bruschetta, chips with guacamole, dipped strawberries mmm) and the presentation was amazing. They even let us bring in our own cupcakes and served them in a lovely display with decorations. Due to the nature of our event, we did not indulge in many cocktails although the ones we did order were fabulous (awesome bellini =0). The price was beyond reasonable for the quality of service and the fact that we practically had the whole place to ourselves. We had a lovely time and several of the guests commented on the decor and the ambience and said they definitely plan on coming again and hosting their events here.

A group of us went in to get a drink and some apps before dinner and the place was awesome. They have a surprisingly good list of Single Malt Scotch and the small plates made us want to skip dinner. You should definitely check this place out.

I went out with a group of friends over the weekend to celebrate my birthday, and we ended up at Obivia. I have to say, this is a great place to go for your birthday. My friends told them it was my birthday, and they gave me a free bottle of Champagne! I don't remember my server's name, but she definitely took extra special care of me, my glass was never empty all night. If you or your friends are looking for a great place to go for your birthday, or just a random Saturday night, you should check out Obivia.

I went to Obivia last Monday after work for happy hour and had a blast! I intended to only stay an hour or so, but I found out their happy hour specials go all night long on Monday, and the next thing I knew it was after 11:00. You certainly can't beat $3 bottles of Miller Lit and $5 specialty cocktails all night! Their food specials were great, too. I highly recommend their basket of loaded steak fries or thin crust pizza. If you're looking for a great place to unwind after work in Soho, you should definitely stop by Obivia.

I only give this place 2 stars because our server was really good (otherwise it would?ve been 1). She was attentive & incredibly nice.

Unfortunately, if you?re looking for a good cocktail ? this is NOT the place to go. The average price of a martini (special or not) is about $18 ? so we were hoping for an ?experience?! It never happened. The drinks we?re served professionally & looked nice ? but did not taste good at all. It has nice decor & friendly staff ? but I wouldn?t recommend this place.

A few months back I was looking for a new spot to throw a birthday party for my friends 30th and decided on Obivia. What a great choice! Management and staff were great! We reserved the lounge area. With about 50 people throughout the evening, the spot was perfect. Although they were short one bartender and one waitress, they were on the ball with everything. We had drinks waiting when we arrived and never had to wait long when ordering. This past saturday, I decided to take some out of towners over to check out the area and ended up there again. My experience was not a one time event. They were fantastic! Quick with drinks and a great scene! Highly recommend for a party or just a saturday night out

Just had a going away party here and it was perfect. Granted it was a Monday nite (never been before!) and Clare and Julie were wonderful to work with, serving us great drinks and munchies (quite tasty!) It's an ideal place for a party, i had about 20 peeps and we had an amazing time, wasn't too loud and the ambience was perfect, fun vibe. Clare kept the back room free for my guests & even extended the happy hour special for our group, thank you so much! What a great way to end my days here in NYC!

I had an event on Thursday on July 3rd promoting my wedding planning business. I had approximately 20 guests. The staff at Obivia was so attentive, passing out hors d'oeuvres, asking everyone what they wanted to drink and making sure my guests were taken care of. When I walked in, they had, already prepared champagne glasses and the champagne was chilling. That was impressive. The ambiance, the look of Obivia was chic, classic and a little bit of the old world wrapped in one. This staff was very professional, cordial and courteous. My very good friend referred this place to me for my event. She was right about EVERYTHING! I absolutely love it and highly recommend it to everybody. I would like to once again Thank Claire who was the person in charge/manager of Obivia. She is a sweet heart and made us feel right at home. My guests were so happy and totally enjoyed themselves. The food was exquisite. The DJ was on point, nothing short of great. He played everything. We were grooving, dancing, jamming and singing along with the tunes. Listen, I can go on and on...Just go and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

I celebrated my 31st birthday here on Saturday and I am so very happy that I did. Upon entering Obivia you are greeted by the nicest and most pleasant hostesses. I had a table with a champagne bottle waiting for me. The waitress was very nice and so patient with everyone. She really made it a pleasure to be there. I was also greeted by Clare who helped me book a table for the party. Not only was she the nicest person on the phone, but she was just as nice in person too. All in all I have to say that the staff at Obivia is great and the drinks were good too. My party and I had a wonderful time and will most definitely do it again!!

I had a table with a champagne bottle waiting for me. The waitress was very nice and so patient with everyone. She really made it a pleasure to be there. I was also greeted by Clare who helped me book a table for the party. Not only was she the nicest person on the phone, but she was just as nice in person too. All in all I have to say that the staff at Obivia is great and the drinks were good too. My party and I had a wonderful time and will most definitely do it again!!

Pros: Awesome Staff

Cons: A bit small

Great atmosphere and great drinks. I went there last night, and I may have stumbled upon some sort of convention, but I have never seen so many good looking people. It was like they were serving good looking potion and everyone was drinking it. So, I joined in and had a great night. Highly recommended!

Cons: A little too crowded some times

Was in NYC for the weekend at the beginning of March and went to this place on a recommendation from a friend. We really had fun! The atmosphere was very conducive to hanging out - warm lighting, good music loud enough get you moving but not too loud to talk, great drinks (loved the spicy Bloody Mary and the drink in the pink cup that glows!!!) Tried some of the tapas - the date-bacon appetizers melted in our mouths, and the guacamole was excellent! But definitely try the chocolate fondue - it comes with fruit, brownies, graham crackers and tiny marshmallows...yum! The staff was attentive and friendly. The manager was very welcoming and we had a great conversation when he discovered we were from out of town. And the movies showing on various screens were visually entertaining - period pieces from the 70's and earlier. Make sure to use the washroom downstairs - it's worth the trip through the crowd to see the giant Buddha head and sense an undercurrent of atmosphere beyond the bar scene...I'm looking forward to meeting friends there next summer when I'm back in NYC.

I was in NYC for a week on business and found this to be a great place. Staff was great here. I didn't have to wait long to get a drink, even though the place was packed. Nice atmosphere and great place to chill and grab a couple of drinks. Next time I'm in NYC, I'll be back.

What I really like about this place is that they have a great liquor list and some very creative drinks. The food is good and the atmosphere is great. There was a DJ who kept things moving. But what I really liked were all the different types of drinks available. I don't like wine or beer, I like something that doesn't taste like alcohol--but not really sweet. The bartender was able to find me several different drinks that I really enjoyed. Good Job! Great Drinks! Nice atmosphere!

I happened upon Obivia last night and was completely blown away! It was a beautiful space, a beautiful place, and the drinks were amazing! It was a high class and swanky bar, and my experience echoed that.

The people where so nice and kind and I will definitely be going back and hitting Obivia up again. It was way to much fun not too.

Pros: The free tasting was great. i was introduced to some way cool new drinks

Cons: if there was one it was that the free drinks didn't last all weekend lol

.

My friends and I wanted to find some place new, and happened to stumble across Obivia. We're glad that we found this place! Excellent specials with very friendly and entertaining employees that helped the drinks keep flowing. A fabulous atmosphere made it exciting to show off our ridiculous dance moves. After stumbling out of the place feeling amazing, we knew we had found a place to come back to often!

So my friends & I went to a Obivia over the weekend and I had such a blast! I go to a lot of trendy clubs & bars and I'm pretty picky but I must say, this place met every need! I love the variety of drinks and appetizers. The mood and setting was just sultry & hot, yet it was also sophisticated. The music was great and it was socially diverse which gives you a lot of choices ladies ;)! Don't worry.. pretty hot women too boys, hell I was there! meow! The staff and managers were amazing, polite, and attentive. They have great events (as I learned) and I look forward to going out there more! Think I'll make to my regular spot! See you there!

Pros: tremendous drinks

Cons: drinks cost a little more than tallboy Bud Diesels

The drinks are amazing, and they have a lot of free tastings. I was there on a Saturday night and the crowd was very New York, very hip. It's a great place to hang with friends.

I never write reviews on here, but I really have to this time. I threw my boyfriend a birthday party on Saturday night and it was fantastic. Obivia has the nicest, most accomodating staff. The place has a cool look, didn't get super crowded, played good music (and not so loud that you can't talk to ppl) and drink prices were reasonable. Everyone had a great time. We will definitely be back (and try the food b/c it looked great as well). Thanks Michael and Clare!

We went here on a Thursday night, (also happened to be Valentine's day, not sure if this contributed to the bar being pretty empty) and the atmosphere was really cool - great decor, a little dark, the 70's softcore on tv was pretty amusing.
The drinks were a definite highlight - a tiny bit pricey ($13-$16 or so, but hey this is NYC!), but worth every penny! Delicious! The pizza of the day was excellent, the chicken wings were just okay, and the tiny burgers seemed a little overdone. But man oh man were those cocktails good!
Also, our waitress was EXTREMELY friendly and nice, which in my opinion is pretty rare these days.

I'm meet a friend at this bar that looked nice when I passed by it one day and when I walk in, the decor is nice and there is a great ambiance and crowd. We get drinks at the bar and then sit at one of the couch/tables. A waitress comes by and mentions the tables are for waitress service only, but since so many tables were empty, she said we could sit and we would order the next round from her. We order another round and the waitress never brings the drinks. An hour later one of the waitresses asks if we need a round and we say it would have been nice if the drinks we ordered an hour ago ever showed up... their loss since they work for tips. We didn't order any more drinks. The main reason, however, that I would never go back to this bar was the raunchy shows displayed on the televisions. This place claims to be romantic?? I don't think so... I don't need to be in a bar surrounded by men staring at the screens w/ undressed women, women touching themselves and displaying very unclassy scenes with men and women on the screen. Let people watch this stuff at home. I was so completely turned off by the programs that were displayed on the televisions, I could not wait to get out of there. Some people might want to see this stuff displayed on tv's in a bar, but certainly not me... I thought it was disgusting.

I recently held my birthday there. Michael, the manager, was fantastic. He made sure all my guests were taken care of and nobody got hassled at the door. The drinks were great--I especially loved the chocolate flavored cocktail. The food was delicious. Great chill ambiance. The only negative comment was that I wasn't too impressed with the music selection--I love dancing so this would not be my first choice for a night out of dancing.

My group of ten and I got there soon after happy hour and the place had plenty of room in the front section with couches and footstools available that were nice and plushy. Our waitress was on top of her game and even gave us a happy hour priced drink a few minutes after it ended.

The decor reminds me of parts of Asia specifically India.

The food is okay and the portions are pretty small for the price, would suggest mainly going her for parties or drinks unless you want to shell out for a bite. Otherwise, great bar.

this is a great lounge with a great vibe. the happy hour drinks and snacks were tasty. i was regretting ordering a cosmopolitan what with the drink specials, when it turned out to be one of the best i've had. the music selection was groovy and still allowed us to chat without shouting. service was so so, but i chalked that up to happy hour.

After being dissed by newcomers around the block, we happened upon Obivia. We were frantically trying to find a spot for our office party. Clare checked with Craig and quickly provided menus with alternatives and a ton of choices for party food. When we arrived the next day (yes the next day, we were really lucky because there was another party in the back space the same night) the staff could not have been more professional or accomodating. The FOOD WAS AMAZING! Everyone at our party is still talking about it. We had something for everyone. On that note, health warning about the movie selection in the bar area. For us, it was cool, but it is better to be forewarned in case you have clients that might not be cool. The only tiny negative was in the fact that our space was in front so the departing guests and other patrons had to cross through. We felt lucky to be there in the first place, though so no matter. Definitely two thumbs up!! It's also a great date place-very seductive vibe.

Oblivia is sooo convenient to the neighborhood. It's kind of a hidden spot but once you get inside- it is beautiful! It's very gothic and kind of industrial inside. It really is homey but only good for a few friends, not large groups. The food is great and exotic drinks are spectacular. I highly highly recommend this place for couples. This is one of the best lounges in manhattan!!! I would return over and over

Hosted my friends' birthday party here, which was fantastic. When I first came to check out the place and talk to the manager, he was extremely friendly and happy to host us, unexpectedly gave us a pitcher of sangria which was fabulous. Arranged special happy hour prices since we had a lot of guests, and they reserved the back area of the lounge for just our party at no extra cost. Not much dancing unless you start it yourself, but music is nothing to complain about - the risque programming on the flatscreen TVs are an interesting touch. All in all, a great venue, fun party, and great management.

wandered in with some girlfriends on a random wed nite. had no idea what this place was about. Let me tell you, its friggin HOT!! from the 70's and 80's porn playing on the flat screens to the candlelit, buddha, zen, loungy atmoshere, this place is a hidden gem! The drinks were awesome and the bartender comped us some great app's. The music was eclectic from the 80's - 90's and current, and they'd play whatever genre you were into shld you ask. The vibe was soooo sexy and fun. We will totally be back the first chance we get. Staff was awesome!!

Went here for a friends party, an all-u-can-drink deal. Read the good reviews, I was pumped to go. Instead of letting us walk through the bar to the back room, the doorman had us walk around the block, and use the back entrance. STRIKE ONE. The second we were in, he ran up to us, and rudely demanded the $ for the special like we were trying to sneak in or something, STRIKE TWO. One friend came late, with 30 minutes of the all-u-can-drink left. They demanded he pay full price! He did not, and they would not let him stay in the back room with us! STRIKE 3. BTW, the back room is just the rear of the bar, with a steel curtain. Nice decor, but the idiotic policies, and rudeness were a turn-off. Too many other cool lounges in NYC to waste your time at this place.

Visited Obvia during the past holidays and found it very friendly, chic, and relaxed if one can be this all at once. Other patrons were dressed in casual attire as well as nightware lending to a mixed social atmosphere of warm congeniality.
Loved it!!!

Come early for the quiet type or after 10 for a little more action! Obivia's crowd is as ecclectic as it's decor, and with 20 or more specialty cocktails on the drink menu, you'll be feeling adventurous. Sip on wine with orders of cheese plate tapas and chocolate fondue, or try one of the other appetizers (foie gras, for example) on the list. Great for first dates...the interesting movie selection on Obivia's 4 flat screen TV's will keep the conversation hot!

ake no mistake--this lounge is as delicious as eye candy as its specialty cocktails are as liver candy, but at $12 a pop on average, theyre a bit ahead of the competency level of which theyre served. (Word of advice: compare your check to the prices on the menu, specify which wine you want because otherwise they'll bring you the most expensive kind, and bring something to read while you wait for your painstakingly prepared cocktail.)

My friends and I loved Obivia this weekend - the vibe is very chill and loungey - and the crowd is trendy and fun! The best part is there is NO ATTITUDE! It's a hot downtown lounge....great drinks - tapas are delish - and the people are hot.
