Have been going here for a couple years now, and it never gets old. APT simply has the best vibe of any bar in the city. Great music (always), strong, reasonably-priced drinks, cool decor, and polite (if unforgiving) doormen make it even better. Sure, it's tough to get in sometimes (a group of guys on the weekend doesn't stand a chance), but it's better during the week anyway (Sundays and Thursdays in particular). Everything about the place just oozes style and hipness, and the crowd is always diverse and cool. Somehow the B&T kids haven't found (and ruined) it yet...hopefully they never will.

i had a little gathering for my bday there on a saturday night in the summer and when it was raining, it was pretty roomy. i had a great time, i love the balcony.
i didn't really like the snooty phone operator, she just answers the phone "hello?" like she is answering a house phone...lol. other than that, i like the staff. they were really cool and nice. which means they get a better tip! (thats for all the snobby waiters!!!

Pros: good waiters, roomy, balcony for smokers

Cons: unisex bathroom

.

Had no problem getting in at 2am on a Sat, but I noticed more the girls ahead of us were turned away (though I could not imagine why). Door policies are so mid-eighties. Once inside, our large group easily found room to mingle and enjoy the music. It's a typical meat-packing vibe; beautiful people drinking expensive cocktails. In the unisex bathroom, a bouncer pounded ferociously on the door immediately after I entered only to apologize when he discovered I was alone. Later, same bouncer not so subtly told us it was time to 'move the party elsewhere - then we noticed it was after 4am. Overall fun experience, I'll visit again.

Pros: sexy atmosphere, good music, not overly crowded

Cons: pretentious door MO, unisex bathroom, uptight bouncer

Just tried APT out this past Monday. Beautiful place! Low key, trendy, romantic (husband and I went, we're in our mid 20's). There were a lot of friendly guys there, not many women. Only one bartender!!! Wait for bartender was anywhere from 10-20 mins, so that sucked. Prob will go back, after trying out various places.

cover $5, drink $9ish

I can only say for what I have seen on Mondays at APT. That is, the place is adoring and trendy. People there vary. The atmosphere seems sleek with a sense of serenity. For those veneering themselves with other than what they are can get exposed by the few originals and forerunners for Hip Hop culture insofar that the place it truly UNDERGROUND. If you dont know the culture you may feel otherwise (from lack of understanding like those with bad reviews about APT).

Pros: Music, Decor, Stylish

Cons: High price drinks, Location, Gets crowded

.

It's a nice, chill place and has a balcony for smoking that you can take your drinks on which is a major plus, although you sometimes may think it's gonna fall off the building there are so many people on it (what does that tell you, mr. mayor?). They really should consider doing something about the bathroom situation though, so that you don't spend half your night on line waiting for 2 unisex single toilet bathrooms.

noce crowd. gets going late. $5 for a tiny bottle of water was stupid, but i guess there is no cover so they got to make their money. would def go back.

Horrific music by a few people who could not mix anything together, not very good looking people, and a bit uppity. Other than that, drinks are reasonable, nice decor, and a nice server. Umm, what is the deal with 2 bathrooms though? Very average in my opinion.

I must say this place does have a good atmosphere and the drinks are pretty yummy. A place to see and be seen, many good looking people here. The only down side of this place is the prices of the drinks are a bit high, but if money is no issue then this is a place to go check out!

I don't understand how anyone can do anything other than love this place.The music,decor,service is the best in the city. True it gets very crowded sometimes but it can also be beautiful and serene. The crowd is different every night and early on it's not so crowded. With so many bad places in New York,I don't understand people who can't recognize a good thing when they see it.

The upstairs part of this bar is filled with a bunch of wannabes and weirdos. The downstairs "dance" floor is literally so crowded you can't even walk. The people who hang out there are rude, the guy at the door is on a power trip, and there's actually I line to get in that I will definitely not be waiting on again.

if you like design,service and most especially MUSIC, then you will love APT. If you like unpretentious, down to earth scattershot service where shots are de rigeur, then yo should go to a pub and get your top forty groove on. I love this place for the new york of it!

I love the hidden entrance! Wish it were a bit more hidden! Don't try getting in with group of five on a Saturday night. Its no problem getting in by myself, but it can be frustrating with a group of more than two on a crowded Saturday night, as with many hot NY spots. The crowd is mixed. Sometimes a good eclectic mix, sometimes too upper-east bland, sometimes too hip-hop dirtbag. When it's good, it's really good! When it's bad...well, at least there's no cover and there are a lot of other cool places nearby.

Don't waste your time with the APT. Knowing how trendy and hip it is, I called and spoke with a hostess about the "guestlist" situation for the evening that I planned to attend with 15 of my friends from out of town. She ASSURED me that there was no list and that I should not have any trouble that Saturday evening. Once I arrived there with my friends, we were turned away by some RUDE bouncer who told us that there was a "private party." We had 8 girls, 7 guys...the ratio was not terrible!!! Fortunately, Trust was next door, where we had great time!!!

APT is kind of hidden if you don't know what you're looking for, but I definitely recommend it. There was no hassle what-so-ever at the door and it was only 8 bucks. Drinks were a little pricey, but the bartenders were adorable. The crowd is diverse...there is definitely someone for everyone.

The DJ rocked the night I was there, and everyone was dancing...which kind of made it hard to get to the bathroom (hope you don't mind a line...and writing on the wall) but all in all I love this place. You'll feel comfy and have a good time whether you're dancing in the basement or lounging elsewhere.

I went to APT on a first date with a great guy. It was crowed (in a good way) so there was a lot going on. The guy that brought me there wasa a DJ and HE said that the DJ was incredible (so you know he HAS to be if another popular DJ was complimenting him!) The people there were really funky! Definitely not run-of-the-mill. The Cosmopolitans were great and the chalk board bathroom was fun. My only complaint - I had to ask some guy who was drawing to leave the bathroom so I could pee!

My girlfriend and I went to NY for 5 days. APT was referred for a friend and we did not get disappointed. We went to other bars in NY and APT is so far the best. The bartenders were very attentive, nice and made very good drinks, a bit expensive, but is New York. The DJ was so good that night throuing some old school brazilian tunes and soul. The crowd was very cool and casual. The bathroom with chalk board walls is awesome! i had a great time the with 'meu amor'. If I ever go back to NY APT will be the first bar I would go.

after reading the reviews, Icouldn't decide to go or not. I went last night and i have to tell you the negative reviews are sour grapes. If you get past the door person you will have a great time. The place is beautiful, the music is excellent and the crowd is very diverse and interesting. Tuesday have a very entertaining ipod party where you get to take a number to dj. It was alot of fun.

I've never had a bad time at APT, a cozy, hard-to-find joint where I've never had to pay a cover charge (bonus for those of us scraping by). I haven't had any trouble with the staff, and the ambience is always dope.

I would rather sit through Mariah Carey's movie "Glitter" than go back to this place. I didn't mind so much the nonsense music that was louder than a Chevy pickup with no muffler. Or the "I'm trying to be hip and tough" bouncers in their cheap suits. Or even the basement bar with the wood paneling giving it that "Let's have a high school party in my Mom's basement" kind of feel. But it was the woman at the door whose attitude made the bar feel more like Cell Block D on Rikers Island rather than a fun place to go. Even though my friend had a reservation they wouldnt let him in. When my out of town friend was denied entry to get my attention, the doorwoman said, Not My Problem. If I could give a rating lower of 1, I would.

This Bar / lounge is something to behold. The lounge area is very comfortable... couches, chairs, beds, you name it a typlical NYC apartment. The basement is where things really pick up... long bars... bartenders knowledgable, and the a good mixed crowd. 3 Stars! - Don't forget to make reservations!

APT would be a cool place if the people working there didn't try so hard to make you feel miserable. There's way too much attitude, especially at the door. Someone should remind the bouncer that she's not queen of the world. When we did go in, we realized it didn't hold up to the hype. APT needs a staff renovation. Overall, it was just obnoxious.

I've been going here since it opened. At first I thought it was a very nice snob bar like park, bungalow and the like. But it's turned out to be so much more than that. The music is some of the best in the city and the staff are fantastic. This is a place built to last. They don't let you in if you look uptight, so relax. The music is different every night so call ahead. My personal favorite is wednesdays with Rich Medina!

I hated this place! I heard so many things about this place and I go with all these expectations to find nothing but models, film students and wannabe actors. The place was adorable, there was no hassle getting in but there was no reason to go in. There was a 16 year-old boy there. They were having a private party so you couldn't sit on those comfortable looking sofas, which is fine but come on then close off the whole upstairs! And hip-hop? There was no hip-hop...

..if you're good-looking/very fashionable and a non-B&T'er. We came here last night (Myself and GF) and were refused entry by a doorman, whom I sensed was a generally unhappy guy. There was no line to get in. We watched him let in B&Ters and obvious touristas. I was tempted to ask if we were too good for the place, but it dawned on me that I'd end up looking as bad as he does! Nothing personal toward the guy, of course, but please be aware that you may be turned away on even the worst of nights.

Ursula 1000 spins Friday nights downstairs at APT... he mixes some of the funkiest tunes in town
Crowd was an interesting cross-section of NYC nightlife, but pretty chill and unpretentious. Everyone's there to relax and have a good time.
Drinks are $8-10, which is getting to be pretty standard for anything other than a pub. Call and make a res. if you want to hang out upstairs in the hip-hop room.

APT attracts the best talent to the bar atmosphere. Hands down. Now if they could only bring the crowds that used to come here back......It used to be all about the music but more and more it seems like a meeting place for the wall-streeters, wanna-be hipsters, and those wanting to be "seen". Don't get me wrong, I will still go there to see the incredible DJ talent, but it will be with less excitement than before.........

My friends and I stopped by after Lotus and it was such a relief to be out of the superficial, and into a place that was fun and unpretentious.

The space is big, airy, and great for groups of friends. The drinks are strong and the music on that night was very good deep house. Upstairs was a little more reserved but still packed full of cool people. I'd definitely come back here again.

the fact that this place was unbelievably packed on a thursday night speaks to how popular it probably is, but i personally was not feeling APT. the door girl could have been a tad less bitchy as she turned us away from the upstairs lounge because we had no reservation (what's THAT about?) and the music could have been turned down a whole lot in the downstairs bar area, which started giving me a headache after a while. the only good that came out of this place was the bartender who gave us our first round of drinks free, and our ensuing departure.

The music was SOOO incredibly loud at this place that it was impossible to talk to the person right in front of you. Minus that, the place was super nice. The long bar gives you ample room to order drinks, and the long banquette behind you is spacious enough to hang out with your friends on either side. The crowd was mixed and seemed very interesting. Awfully trendy, but a great place to go in the neighborhood and come out hoarse!

I went last night and it was like the place of old.The floors were seperated and the crowd was fantastic!It seems differnet but maybe better than ever.I was there till 5:30 and had a great time!Both floors are good but you should get a table upstairs and then go between floors.The music was GREAT!

The scene has gotten weak. This place was fun a few years ago. Arrogant doorlady.

A friend of mine took me to apt on a sunday in July swearing that there was a great sunday party there. Sunday?! ... I was skeptical, but sure enough it was totally crazy and sexy and by far one of the best nights I've had in a long time. I've been addicted ever since and can't get enough. The attendees (all in-the-know regulars) are all hip and gorgeous and NICE! The dj is amazing, and the hosts Patrick and Gabby are THE dynamic duo -- very attentive, accomodating, and FUN! I want to keep this a secret but I have to give that team props for turning Sunday into the funnest night of the week. KUDOS!

Although occasionally still bitchy at the door, the policy used to be much stricter right after the opening and the crowd much more attractive. Far from being a scene any more, APT is a great place to start or end a night. Always stay upstairs late, because there is an occasional late night crowd that stays until 5:30 or so. Thursdays are a very strange night. The music is fantastic, but only about half of the crowd looks like they belong inside. They also do not differentiate the floors. The table service is fairly sluggish, but usually attentive and the drinks are great.

Called to send guests from the Hotel I work for.....some clubs will guest list people, was told that they do not guestlist and please not to call and bother them again.....RUDE. I guess I won't suggest this place to anyone again. Silly, pointless attitude!

Felt right at home. The staff was pleasant and unobtrusive. Apt was right on the ball in creating a large homelike environment for us new yorkers who can't fit more than three friends comfortably in our own apts. Nicely done! Will definitely keep coming back

Thought to give Apt. one more chance after my last visit there, only because some friends wanted to see the place.
It was again a big disappointment; the place was empty and the staff very very rude!
The enteriour is cool but that's the only good thing I can say about the place.

This place was very laid back and just chill. The music wasn't really that great, but the crowd was "interesting." It's nice if you want to go dance but don't really want to go "clubbing."

This Meatpacking District bar was once the best kept non-secret in town. Today, it's one of the best places to sip a cocktail. That is, if you can find it. There's no sign and only the press of a buzzer gets you in the door. But once…
