So there's this Fat Squaty Door Man at Groove, and he'll be sure to give you an attitude & a snarl when you enter.

So anyways, I'm in the club, I get a phone call, and I go to the "lobby" to talk b/c it's quiet there.

My girls and a few friends came up to this place. They have a doorman (if thats what you call him) who is just completely rude!!. My girls hes cool to (sometimes) but my guys who I brought he was totally opposite. The guys at Underground and Cafe Wha and other surrounding venues just check the ID and keep it moving. This EGOTISTICAL dude has to take checking ID to another level and is going to give the wrong person a hard time.

Maybe consider a better quality person (maybe) even management on Thursdays. Just because you're at the front door doesnt mean you use that "power" to give people hard times who just want to come out. My guy friends said they will never go back. Probably me neither. Just because hes at the front doesnt mean hes ALWAYS appropriate. You have to watch the quality of people you hire to GREET guests in a professional manner.
Party on!!!

Pros: music

Cons: doorman with earring in eye is rude

I try to make it to Groove everytime I'm in the West Village. If you love live R&B/Funk/Hip-Hop/Soul then there is no better place to try...doesn't really matter the night of the week. Drinks are reasonable and the small cover charge is worth it. The tables are tightly packed and the bathrooms are a little shaky but you came here for the music right? Def worth checking out.

Pros: Great music, drink prices, location

Cons: small space and bathrooms

Off the hook!
Went there with a date 2 weeks ago. Tight space is the only down side. Mixed crowd. Totally unpretentious and the band was banana's! Typical NYC drink prices but the finger foods were exceptional! I'll be back.

Pros: live music, good finger food

We went to the bar not knowing what to expect. We had a great time; the band was wonderful, entertaining and fun. Drinks were priced ok, and the food was actually alright for bar food that is. We had such a good time at Club Groove. Whenever I go back to New York, or if someone ask me where to go I will definitely tell them to check out Club Groove they will not be disappointed at all.

My boyfriend and I go to Grove at least once every couple of months and we always love it. They now charge $5 to get in depending on the band that is playing that night. They also have available table seating which there is a two drink minimum. The drinks are reasonably priced and bartenders always try to accomadate you. They offer a food menu now at the bar and the tables. The live music is alway great, and the mix crowd is a bonus. They are stepping thing up for the better, they just need a large space.

Pros: Music , drinks, service

I always have a good time at Groove. I have yet to come across a band that wondered why they were there. Drinks a reasonable in price, service is reasonable and the crowd is always laid back and there for a good time. Anytime I just want to get out or feel it's too early to turn in Groove saves me.

Pros: hours, location, cute drummers

I really liked the ambiance at Groove. We were able to get a table for three right off the bat, the music sounded like it was going to be good...then the band sang their first song boy, was he awful!! Plus, he sang with his back turned to the audience most of the time and the persussion was a bit hard on the eardrums. Maybe we hit the place on an off night, but I think whoever books their acts should be more selective. Other than that it seemed like a cool place. We left after the third song of the first set however...

I've seen Rahj perform quite a few times. Its actually been over a year since last I've seen him. I went this past Saturday. And he is still rocking the house. He used to perform at 101, but they closed. The stage seemed a little small and he wasnt able to move about and dance like he used to. But the vocals, song selections, and band were awesome!! Rahj also plays guitar. Something I've never seen his do before. Very impressive. He and his band are truly talented. I reccommend going to see this band at The Groove. They cover many music genres over many decades of music. Anyone would benefit from seeing their performances.

This is one of the best bars that I have ever been to! Coming from the Motor City (Lot's of great music there) I've heard alot of greta bands. These house bands are the best bands that I have ever heard. I go to NYC alot and will not miss going to Groove!

Pros: Inexpensive, great bands, casual

I have not been this entertained in quite a while, let alone on a MONDAY. Rahj and his band blew it down. The chemistry among all the band members is literally pulsing. They even let me (an underground rap artist) do my thing on the mic for a bit. The atmosphere is laid back, the drinks are well priced and potent :-) ...Overall I was very impressed with Groove. I recommend this spot whether you're traveling in a group, solo or with a special friend (who likes live music of all types).

Pros: Good Music, Good Drinks, No cover

This is a great place to meet up with friends, or go by yourself. With the funk setting the mood and the inexpensive drinks not holding you back, you're really able to get your 'groove' on. (And you can't beat the price---free!)

This passed Monday night my buddies from college took me out to an amazing night at Groove, it was my first night there and the club was rocking! The live band played great cover songs and everybody was singing and clapping their hands like crazy! Check out the apple Martinis.... they're awesome!
