The place has somewhat intimate hush hush sense with its rather hidden entrance. Small space so come here if you are in for a smaller group or drink date and want to have a nice leisure talk\r
For the drink quality, it's standard.

hard to write a review when you are asked to leave before your are seated. DO NOT GO to this rude establishment. We ( 3 couples) had the audacity to arrive when they were virtually empty at 6:30 on a Saturday night. We were asked to leave

This place used to be such a civilized place in midst of the craziness of the east village. now, it is just another bar - mobbed by the masses and has lost any sense of caring. There I was, with a date, ordered drinks, the bartenders

My friend is a total flame. His feet never touch the ground. We went out for drinks. They said--we'll seat you at a 4-top. If another couple comes, you have to share. Not a problem. We sat side by side (see flame description). A foursome

I walked in one night with a date after a few month hiatus. I noticed right away, things have changed, they had someone at the door taking names. They never had a host before, I know because I've been patronizing angel's share for over 8

Pros: still romantic and great location, drinks are still good

Cons: terrible new staff

I've been here a total of 4 or 5 times but after the way my friends and I were turned away the last 2 times, I refuse to come back ever again. The place is a narrow and has very limited seating, so they impose 2 rules: all customers must

Whether you sit at the bar or get a more comfortable seat in the back, Angel's Share is a great place for intimate conversation - and just to talk. The cocktails are great!... try the shiso leaf cocktail. Only problem is that there's

Hello everyone, I am a senior bartender at Angel's share and I would like to share some news with all of you. My manager at Angel's share is opening up a new bar in May 2007 called B-Flat located in Tribeca. The address is 277 Church

I went to Angel's Share with a couple of out of town friends last night after a play. I heard good things, but I never had been there before. I was a bit concerned that it may have been too hyped and I would disappoint my guests.

I've heard mixed thing about here, mostly great cocktails and rude service. Personally I found the cocktails to be great... as well as the service. The caiparinah was tasty even if the didn't have my favorite cachcha and the fried oysters

Went on a date Sunday night... Sat at the bar. Cocktails are unique and the bartenders seem to take extra special care in shaking them up. This is definitely a cool find. Very quaint & romantic! And the sashimi was good too :)

As long as you're sure not to show up with a party bigger than 4 (they're not allowed), this is a fun place to get a drink. A secret door is always fun, and the ambiance inside is nice.

Pros: Secret door is a fun gimmick

Cons: No parties bigger than 4, can be a wait to be seated

The best part is the fact that it's hidden. Step through the secret door in an crappy, hole in the wall restaurant to find this stylish quiet dimly lit bar. So chic! The only pity, though, is that the waiters in the stylish bar are the

I'm failing to understand the one or two bad reviews here. It's not some cushy hotel bar, but the back room is quite serene. To the other reviewer who complained the server was nasty because their party was too large and seated

Angel's Share has one thing going for it, intrigue. The drinks all miniscule, food was undercooked and mediocre and the experience was an F. Would not go back.

Its quiet and its cosey, its one of the best little bars / lounges in New York. The drinks can be spendy, but they're wonderfully made. Its worth the visit, just not in a huge group.

Pros: great conversations, lychee daiquiri, perfect date spot

Cons: parties of 4 max.

This lounge is a rare gem in a city bedecked in with unecessarily over-hyped trendy bars. Although very crowed, for those with a descriminating eye will recognize this diamond. The bartenders truly understand their art and they execute

I cannot say enough about the place, so long as you get in the back room! To do this, you need to arrive early, have a small herd, and have some luck. Once in the back, enjoy the very romantic ambience, great martinis, and polite

You can't see it form outside. Its hidden, but people know about it. However, the rambuntious crowd stumbling out of Off The Wagon below us has no idea. You get a great view of the steet from this narrow cigar-bar style lounge. One side is

Then you must try Angel's Share! It is so romantic and a cold winter's night and the drinks were so yummy. The drinks are only a couple dollars more than most places but the difference being that they are made perfectly. Yes, the waiters

I went there on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Upstairs to a brightly lit Japanese restaurant, go through a door and be transported into a Japanese take on classic 50s decor and luxury. With large windows draped with velvet

I cannot understand the other reviews! Actually I though I was in the wrong place completely. It is far from trendy, it's a dump. And... on a Friday night, there were about 10 people in the place.

It's always cocktail hour at this East Village bar. That is, if you can find it. Locating the unlikely and curiously diagonal Stuyvesant Street on which this tiny but romantic bar exists won't be your only challenge of the evening. Head up…
