First of all the staff is extremely accommodating and this place is not pretentious at all. I contacted the owner ahead of time to reserve some space for my birthday. It was so easy and they were still able to squeeze me in after showing up late.

The atmosphere is cozy with low black leather seating and intimate lighting. The music is a mix of older, but very memorable rock songs- great for people in their mid 20s-early 30s. The pin up posters are also fun and the whole room buzzes with positive energy. Everyone that I ran into here was outgoing, fun and friendly.

Another plus is that it is easy to get to since it is in close proximity to the subway and a lot of cute restaurants. They have an eclectic and unusual selection of drinks at good prices. They even post daily specials on their twitter page.

Pros: Staff, cozy atmosphere, music, location, drinks

Cons: Only one bathroom so be prepared to wait in line.

Nurse Bettie has just started a new burlesque show on Thursday nights that's free of cover, for now, I think. It starts at 10 pm and its' every Thursday night hosted by Calamity Chang. She has about 4-5 girls doing different burlesque acts and there's a sexy gogo dancer in the window peephole! It's really fun! you cant go wrong with drinks, a cool neighborhood gem, and a free burlesque show! the people that come to this bar are cool too. not overly hipster but not fraternity either.

I just happened upon nurse bettie last Sunday night with my boyfriend and a few friends and we were delighted with our experience!! The bartender (I don't remember his name but he has a mohawk and said he works there sundays & mondays) made us delightful cocktails, some with egg-whites, some with basil and jalapeno or you can just tell him what flavors your like and he'll make you a custom cocktail... It truly was a delight and I look forward to many more cocktails @ Nurse Bettie.

My favorite neighborhood spot. Drinks are always great, music is always on point, bartenders are all awesome and the owner is the nicest guy on the block.

I really want to be selfish and not give Nurse Bettie all the props it deserves (want to keep this gem my own little secret--once you go, you'll know why). I've been to NB a few times now, and it's always goooood times. The atmposhere is hot ala Bettie Page style pin-ups, the bartenders are not only funny but they're also way cool, and the drink prices are right on. I work in an industry that allows me to sample some of the best, new hot spots, and many times I'm left feeling blah about the experience-pretentious doorman, overpriced & watered down drinks, and a space filled with way too many pretty people. Nurse Bettie breaks the mold. It's destined to be the new LES hotspot.

Super cool, trendy, 50s pin-up style bar with excellent specialty martinis. My favorite is the Bazooka Bettie, their bubblegum martini. Service is very attentive & friendly... definitely worth checking out! And don't forget to check out the bathroom! :)

Pros: cheap drinks, friendly bartenders & easily accessible by train

Bartender, bouncer and owners have been friendly both times my friends and i have gone here. The decor and entire feel of this small bar is sultry. drinks are on key. the dirty martini and specialty drinks are tasteful. I like this place because it doesnt get too packed to the point where it is elbow to elbow. The burlesque show was very entertaining. must go again!

Pros: drinks, ambiance, bartender, close to subway

I accidentaly came across Nurse Bettie and have to say what a find. From the laid-back attitude of the staff to the great drink prices, NB hits the bulleyes as a new fresh place to frequent. The pin-up art and the ladies behind the bar are easy-on-the-eyes. Ask for a naughty nurse shooter! I'll definitely come back.

In a land of trendy pretense and overpriced nonsense, this place stands out as an oasis of quiet cool. The pinup theme is alluring without being obnoxious, the decor is classy without being snotty, and (by Manhattan standards) the drink prices are good. Even though it's a small place, it doesn't seem to get horribly packed. The women behind the bar are very easy on the eyes, and wickedly hilarious as well. Tip big and stay on their good side.

I was hoping this bar would remain my own little secret, but it looks like I'll have to share . And why not? The decor is effortlessly gorgeous and the staff are some of the sweetest, funniest people ever. And they really seem to enjoy being there. None of that pretentious attitude that you get at some of the other newish places in the area. Even the doorguy/bouncer is a fine and entertaining gentleman. Everything about this place is cool and comfortable. Try the Au Pair (a pear-infused vodka martini). It's just what the Nurse ordered!

I LOVE this bar.

Great space, even better specialty drinks, and the sweetest bartenders in the city.

I fell in love with their cute DJs too. Fleetweek Fridays are always a blast.

I had a super fun time at Nurse Bettie this past Wednesday night. great decor...great lighting, nicest bartenders and great drinks (cheap too, $5-$9). There is nothing divy about this place. The old 50's bar stools and the pin-up art, and the great drinks made this gem my new favorite bar.

Editorial from

In Short
There's an inkling of an old-time peep show in the tinted windows' cut-out keyholes and portraits of 1950s pin-ups provocatively posed. Filling out the rest of the tiny room is a laid-back neighborhood vibe--the punky…
