BARRAGE CAN SOMETIMES BE A FUN PLACE TO GO WHEN YOU HAVE NO PLANS ON MEETING ANYONE WITH ANY SUBSTANCE TO THEM... I WISH NYC HAD SOME PLACE FOR GAY MEN TO MEET OTHER GAY MEN WHERE ITS JUST NOT ALL ABOUT HOOKING UP.. DOESNT ANYONE WANT TO FIND A LASTING RELATIONSHIP ANYMORE? I HAVE SEEN PEDRO THE BARTENDER STEAL MONEY SO MANY TIMES IN THERE BY NOT RINGING UP DRINKS AND STEAING DRINKS TOO.. PLACE WOULD BE ALOT BETTER WITHOUT HIM.. HE STEALS AND ALL YOU HEAR ABOUT IS HIM.. ARENT BARTENDERS SUPPOSE TO ASK YOU ABOUT YOURSELF.. NOPE NOT HIM.. HUGE EGO.. SOME OF THE OTHER BARTENDERS ARE OK.. PEDRO IVE SEEN LATE NIGHT AT OTHER PLACES.. SAD THING IS,, HIS BOYFRIEND IS A NICE PROFESSIONAL GUY AND HAS NO CLUE PEDRO IS MAKING A FOOL OF HIM.. HE IS A BIG SLUT..ITS TOO BAD..

Pros: PRICES LOCATION CROWD MIUSIC

Cons: BARTENDER NOT HONEST.. SMELLS BAD.. CLEANINESS

.

What's up with the "BAD...SICKENING...HEADACHE CAUSING SMELL ???"
"PLEASE"...they should make the place private , or leave the Buddha Oils HOME !!!!!!!!

"SERIOUSLY"

...IT DOES SEEM TO EXIT WITH THE TURNING ON OF THE AIR CONDITIONER ...BUT...TOO LATE ! Customers are already heading for the door.

Pros: It's a bar

Cons: It's a bar with sickening odors

Ive been going to this place for the past year pretty frequently for happy hours after work. Not only are the drinks strong & cheap ($4 @ happy hour, $7 when not, about) but the staff is super friendly & helpful. After only a few times there, the bartender remembered me & my friend's drinks exactly, and every other friend's drink that we've brought there!
Only downside, on weekends & after 8p the place can get pretty crowded

Cons: can get crowded, sometimes the music is really loud

Barrage left me in a "rage" alright.

I used to love this place, which once had friendly bartenders, great drinks and music. But on a recent Saturday, our cocktails didn't have any alcohol. (Seriously, did they refill their bottles of Ketel One with water?) And, to make matters worse, the music consisted of all the great hits--from last year!

Your better option is The Ritz on 46th Street. The music brings everyone to their feet and the drinks are alcohol-icious.

P.S. I wouldn't have given this has-been joint a single star if I wasn't forced to by this review program.

Cons: Weak drinks and lame atmosphere.

Pros: bar size and good for trannies.

Cons: men who wear mascara, mold, insects "the red ones", animals, stank.

Simple, Fresh and Friendly. I loved the original look of the place and now - returning to NYC after a 3 year absence - have every reason to keep coming back. HK is changing and Barrage is keeping up with the times. Stylish without being a slave to trends, and Cool without loosing it's friendlyness it's still my favorite place to hang for a nightcap or meet a date at.

i've been living in the hell's kitchen area since barrage was "the new bar" with no sign. recently they decided to revamp the place to draw in a new younger crowd. apparently the way to do this was to remove the entire staff, who incidentally were the best reason to go there, and replace them with newer cuter versions. the new face was recently revealed with uncute unfriendly bartenders and an eclectic tacky decor that couldn't even pass as ironic. boo. you killed a good thing.

I really like Barrage and I've been there quite a few times. The "happy hour" starts a little bit later even though the specials are from 4-8:00 pm. I have been there right after work and basically there is no one there. Around 7:30 or so, it seems to really liven up. The people are nice and the bartenders are GREAT! So, basically, don't go too early and it's a fun place.

I like this place a lot. I live in Chicago but work in new York quite a bit and have quickly grown tired of the way too trendy pretty boy bars in Chelsea where the drinks are weak and expensive. Barrage seems more down-to-earth, still has a few cute boys, and serves very strong, relatively inexpensive mixed drinks.
Bartenders are nice and not flirty. (good and bad)
Crowd is much more relaxed than Chelsea and you can still meet people if you work a little harder.

Pros: cheap, strong drinks, relaxed, not chelsea

Cons: average crowd, a bit lonely

A pleasant place to hang out for a couple of hours with friends. The simple but comfortable seating encourages groups to sit and chat, so while great with friends, could be somewhat lonesome if you go on your own. The pictures on the walls are all taken from designer marketing campaigns (Calvin Klein, Versace etc) and though mostly well known are all bursting with pent up sexuality. And the walls are covered with them. Wonderful eye candy! Drinks are moderate to expensive ($14 for 2xwine) and when we were there, the a/c was acting up so it got a little warmer than it should. Nonetheless, a pleasant, watering hole away from the village meat-rack bars.

I went to Barrage before and decided to revisit it. This time I had a really great time. I had a nice chat with one of the waiters for a long time and bonded with the coat check girl. The drinks are good, the music is good and the atmosphere is a bit cruisy but can be handled.

I love this bar. It doesn't matter when I show up, I have a great time, the bartenders are always cool and attentive (maybe that's because I go out of my way to tip them well? I dunno, just a suggestion for the people who say they wait too long for service -- good service doesn't come cheap), and the space is full of energy, conversation and a friendly clientel. Nice neighborhood place to hang out, drink and talk. No blaring disco music (but a good sound-system nonetheless), and plenty of room to stand or sit. I highly recommend it (for people who don't mind tipping their bartenders).

Editorial from

The Scene
With floor-to-ceiling windows, sleek black leather sofas lining the walls and ottomans that can be configured to accommodate a cozy couple or a large group of friends, Barrage is a nice addition to the swanky gay bar…
