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.

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...

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

It's an average hip hop dj bar. not an artist or hipster in site. It's a place for "art" in name alone. other than that, it could be called "Slim Freddy's" and you wouldn't know the difference. Don't go to be wowed. Unimaginative people pretending to be imaginative. If that's what you are looking for, then chances are you've already discovered the actual artist bar around the corner...you know the one with the cheap drinks and cool people.

GalleryBar rocks out the LES like none other! I hosted my 30th last Saturday night and as depressing as turning 30 is, had the best time I've had going out in years. I set the party up with Josh and reserved an area in the downstairs lounge and can't thank you guys enough. We were greeted, seated and taken care of all night. The waitress Rachel was on point and my guests are still talking about my party. Later in the night I took a walk upstairs to hear the best mix of classic hip hop and rock. It was then, I spotted the PHOTOBOOTH... Let's just say I have the pictures to prove it! Josh, you guys are on to something special. Keep it up and will be back soon.

Cons: The night ended.

The key advantage to Gallery Bar is its two floors. Downstairs is more chill, with lounge areas and a lower ceiling. Upstairs is better for dancing, with a DJ and even a photographer to help you do your thing.

Go earlier and claim a place to sit - can get crowded later on (but not so much that getting to the bathroom is more painful than catheterizing yourself).
EXCELLENT music on Saturday nights.
Just make sure to bob and weave around the "wooooooohhhh!" drunk girls - they're usually pretty easy to dodge, though they do throw a mean elbow...

Wow. This is a great concept for a Lounge/Gallery. I hadn't been here yet, only heard of it. Last Friday I hosted a party and had a wild night, good music, amazing art show and a Photobooth. It got a little busy later in the night but it was still the best time I've had in months. I''l be back!!!

I went here on a Saturday night for a friends birthday party and it was way too crowded and not fun at all. The music was completely uninspiring, top forties nonsense, nothing that I'd expect from a new lounge in the LES. The crowd was even worse, I felt like I was in new jersey not a hip LES bar. My friends also had trouble getting in even though we were supposed to have a guest list, so the owners completely lied about how they would accomodate us. Never again will I go here.

I went here on a friday night. The crowd is different here than most LES bars. Less hipster, mostly suburban kids posing and trying to look hip. The DJ played typical pop hits, nothing unusual or interesting. With the atmosphere that the DJ and crowd instill, you might as well be in NJ or Long Island Drinks are not a good deal here, with no cheap beers, all are priced the same. You will pay the same $6 for a Yeungling (in most bars the cheap draft) as you would a Stella or Blue Moon. Bartenders were okay, but overall this place is nothing special.

Came here for a party on a thursday night. As a phtographer i couldnt believe how well done the "gallery" was. Refreshing to see great art in the LES.

But, that wasnt all.. they had a few dj's spinning that said they hosted the party.they had this crowd moving.
Great music, better art, and a perfect crowd!

WORTH A VISIT!

We've had a few drinks here and there at Gallery Bar for the past few weeks and each time was great. Last Friday we held a joint birthday celebration at the lounge downstairs. All was well until uninvited people came. It took a few talks with the owners to put things in order but once it was fixed the rest of the night went by smoothly. The dj was awesome, drinks range from $7-12 (strong), clean bathrooms and accomodating owners. Hopefully the crowd mix will get better in time because right now its not very LES.

Gallery Bar is the best new spot in NYC. The bar is very tastefully decorated. Downstairs is very comfortable. The music is awesome. Everytime I have been there, the owners have personally welcomed me and taken some time to talk with me. They are great! I was very impressed with the quality of the artwork. It is really fantastic and sure to draw a lot of interest. A must visit!

Gorgeous decor, great concept and very fun, good looking crowd. A fun make out, i mean photo booth.
Owners are sweethearts and it's the type of place you can hang in all night, the DJ is great and the atmosphere is not so pretentious that you can get up and cut a rug yet nice enough where it does have a sophisticated vibe.

I was walking by the LES on my way home from work and the magnificent artwork by Kevin Berlin drew me in. I have been a fan of his work for a while and was really impressed with the layout and the idea behind this bar. I checked it out again on a random thursday night and was thoroughly impressed. The music was ecclectic, the drinks cheap, and the downstairs - seductive as hell. I definitely will be back. This is by far the hottest new bar in the LES.

Gallerybar is a great place! Fantastic scene with classy people. The owners and staff are very friendly and accomidating - very hard to find in NYC. I will definitely be back many times in the future and will bring all my friend in town and from out of town in! The two floors are so essential and love the way they both have a different feel. Great job guys on the concept - very original!

I'm the first to write about Gallerybar because it just opened and I made friends with the people there when I hosted my Bday last Saturday night. Just wanted to say thank you, I promised I would give you guys some love. The night was perfect from the reservation set up to the music. When I can host all of my friends with no hassle in a hip spot, I know you are doing something right! Also, the Artwork is amazing. I go out in the LES all the time and it is nice to have a newcomer to the neighborhood. I'll be back, in fact, my sister is hosting her party in 3 weeks!!

Gallery by day and bar by night, this Lower East Side lounge wants to take the atmosphere of an art opening and repeat it every night. The spacious showroom has a basic palette of black walls and brown banquettes, a backdrop against which…
