This is a low key, off-the-beaten path, no pretensions Hell's Kitchen bar. It seems to have a great staff, very low key and accommodating. I live a block away and this place always fits the bill when i don't want to stress myself ""going out"", I just want to sit in a dark bar with a drink and catch up with a few friends, and actually hear what they're saying. It's one of the few places where you have a really good chance of getting a barstool, even if you roll in at 11. If you've had a long day and just want to sit down, there are sofas all around. It's not divey, but it is pretty dark, which I find really relaxing. The only thing I'm not keen on is that there are four TVs (silent sound though)d, but do understand the business reasons for having sports on.

The back room is perfect for a party. The music is great. I enjoyed the cocktails as well. It's far from the subway though.

Wether you are in the mood to belly up to the bar by yourself or hang out with friends in their rear cozy alcove, it's a guarantee that someone will strike up a conversation with you...most likely the friendly bar staff and owners, if not the other patrons (usually both). They have a superb list of specialty martinis concocted by their master mixologis 'Jenny ' and a dam good sellection of beer on tap....I'm talking real beer! one of these days I will be able to walk out of this bar without bouncing off the side of the walls.....whom I kidding! Anyways, for good bar with good booze, good music, a great staff and down-to-earth friendly regulars, I highly recommend it. Great place to hang, to bring a date (you can actually hear yourself talk) or just watch a game.

Cons: Waking up the next day:))

Great vibe, great place to go if you're looking to chill out . It's perfect: you can relax, have fun, listen to some music and have some of the best drinks in town. Highly recommend it if you're looking for a nice night on the town, my friends and I always feel right at home when we go.

I love this place! It is the perfect combination of a classy, sophisticated lounge and your favorite local pub. The overall energy is great, and I think that has a lot do with the staff. They are all just really down to earth and friendly. I always know I'm going to have a great night out if I choose Perdition!

This place is perfect! It has such a nice atmosphere...from the cozy loungy tables to the gorgeous bar, you feel comfortable anywhere you hang in this place. My friends and I discovered this bar/lounge a couple years ago and we fell in love. Their drinks are so creative and yummy as well as their food menu. Perfect place for a party or just a night out. I lived all the way downtown on the east side and I still feel it is worth the trip to frequent this awesome bar!!!

i've only been in this place a handfull of times, mainly at ""happy hour"" time, the bartender (British ..i think) veyr forthcoming, funny and good looking!!. for a place thats located in midtown west and as ""loungy"" it is, it's quite a local bar! i'm very surprised that they are as cheap and relaxed accompanied with good drinks.\r
perfect place for ""celebs"" as i've seen them to hang out and be comfortable. If you want to be descreet or just have a great choice of beer and cocktails this place is pretty damn decent!! what more can i say??!!\r

i know my film crew will come here again!

Pros: Bar staff, beer selection, very good with ""celebs""

Cons: none really

Perdition is a great place. Always an interesting selection on tap, and the use of a Kilkenny Tap System keeps the beer cold and fresh. I'm not a cocktail drinker, so I can't comment on them, but I'm told Jenny is a master mixologist. The whole staff, Jenny, Jeff, Scottie, Jess and Sean (who I've known for twenty plus years and at least half a dozen bars) are very friendly and talented bartenders and hosts. The space is good, too. Sort of lounge-like inside the front door, it turns to more tradidional pub (with a cosmopolitan flair) by the bar, then back to lounge again as you pass the DJ booth to the back, where there are several well-defined and private seating areas. And...you've got to go downstairs and check out the bathrooms. I know this sounds ridiculous, but in a city where many bars have very crappy (pun intended) restrooms, the care that went into the design of the facilities at Perdition is indicative of the care that went into the design of the entire place.\r
The only drawback is there's not much else on Tenth Avenue...however, that's changiing rapidly. In another three or four years, Tenth will be as busy or busier than Ninth is today. Get in on the Tenth Avenue trend and try Perdition today.

I've been frequenting this bar for over 1 year now and it's about time I tell people about it. The bartenders and owners are always on a first name basis with the patrons. I am a professional Interior Designer with a great appreciation for space and decor. The ambience is wonderful with a deep ocean blue color flooding the space and a restored brick wall spanning the length of the bar. Hidden in the rear is a cozy lounge with banquets available for private parties at no extra charge. My favorites: They have an 80's night with games, trivia and prizes. And a Game night with connect four, battleship, jenga, cards, etc. . . I don't know about some people, but I appreciate cleanliness and this bar is always on top of maintaining appearances. As far as the atmosphere & crowd goes; This is the kind of place you could walk into by yourself and manage to know everyone within a short period of time. Just like the bartenders, the patrons are good fun !\r

I don't usually write reviews for bar or restaurants but I couldn't pass up praising Perdition. Planning for a surprise b-day party for my fiance, I dragged my feet in trying to find a place that fit the perfect criteria of a nice upscale loungy, not too crowded or loud space for a private party with inexpensive drinks and nice beer selection. Through citysearch I came across Perdition. The managers were completely user-friendly when I wanted to set-up this shin-dig. Everyone at our party had a blast and loved perdition. Their drinks were great for guys and gals because they have tasty cocktails and a large selection of foreign draft beers!

What better place in Hell's Kitchen than PERDITION? Friendly staff, enough nooks and crannies to be a Tomas's English Muffin. The music cranks up about 10:30, but you can find a corner to get away from the overwhelming power. Conversation is friendly. Strangers might drop by your table for a chat. The bar food is nothing special, but it's not bad either. The $4 beer specials are also miles above the usual BUD LITE offering. Cool decor, accommodating staff, friendly patrons, what more could you want?
-- Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers

I had a impromptu bday party on Saturday and had a blast. We took over the cute little back lounge space and enjoyed numerous drinks specials all night long. The peach martinis were excellent (and I don't even like peach). The staff was fierce!

Perdition had such a great vibe it's no wonder why all types like to frequent the bar. And I cannot say enough about the specialty drinks, but I highly recommend the Irish Black Russian. Who knew that Guinness could be mixed with vodka and taste so heavenly?

Perdition is one of the hottest bars to open in Hells kitchen in 2005. A great cocktail and beer bar that has the feel of a homely bar yet the looks, feel and atmosphere of a cosy upscale lounge. They have a great selection of beers served in the European 20 ounce pint glass. However; if you are into cocktails then you have to try their amazing selection of martinis.....from chocolate to raspberry flavor......you won't be dissapointed-it is impossible to just have one! The owners and staff are friendly, cool and down to earth. They have a great back room for intimate gatherings with friends and a great sound system. Good job guys and welcome to the neighborhood.

If you're tired of stale beer, head to Perdition for the best tasting-- and coldest-- draft in the city. This is a great bar in a neighborhood that could really use one. A good place to watch a game or go for drinks on a date as well.

the only way i can describe this place really is: a cross between a really nice cocktail lounge with such a laid back and down to earth atmosphere, so none of that snottiness that you get with lounges. the owners and staff are great, they make you feel sooo welcome. you'll see them both behind the bar and on the floor chatting to the customers. also a great djon thursday nights which is when i was there!!!
ps before i forget, one of the owners made us this great cocktail, crazberry something, check it out!

Recently a friend recommended 'Perdition,' so I decided to give it a shot last weekend. She had told me the place was really cool, but I was in no way prepared for just how cool and yet classy 'Perdition' would be. So impressed with 'Perdition'was I, that it inspired me to write this review...The moment you walk in, you can tell that the owners put a lot of thought and work into the place. The atmosphere is cool, stylish, laid back, and in no way ordinary. They also make great drinks! The prices are more than reasonable, especially for those of us that don't want to pay $15-20 a drink, just to be in a trendy spot. In short, with it's upscale, yet very down to earth atmosphere, 'Perdition' is a place I will be coming back to regularly, and I live in Brooklyn!

My friends and I have finally found the perfect bar! I am so happy this place opened! It's got such a great atmosphere, very classy without the stuffiness. It's got plenty of room, great service and the best drinks. My friend's and I were saying how it is the perfect place to throw a private party, or to just meet a few friends for a a good time. Hell's kitchen needed a place just like this! I live downtown and I think this place is definetley worth the trip up, it's got such a great vibe....

Just had an excellent time at this new Irish pub. Best pint of Guinness in the city. Great atmosphere with a friendly and very professional staff. Classy..... but not stuffy at all. Looks like Hell's Kitchen has a new hot spot. Looking forward to my next visit.
