I hate to give The Room such a good review because it's a small bar and it already gets crowded, but after the previous post I felt I needed to say something. I've been coming here since 1997 and I've enjoyed every night I've hung out there. I'm not sure what the previous poster is talking about in regards to music, but if they aren't happy with bands like Silversun Pickups, Interpol, Luscious Jackson and Pixies then they're at the wrong bar. It's one of the few bars in the city where I know I'm going to hear great music and maybe even discover a new band. Keep up the good music and of course the nice selection of beer and wine.
Cheers!

Cons: Small and can get crowded

I've heard a lot of good things about this place and finally decided to try it out last night. The set-up is very cozy. Unfortunately all of the couches/tables were taken so we were seated on a bench in the back, but it was still pleasant. The low lighting, vanilla aroma from the candles and decor around the lounge was great, perfect for a date. We got a bottle of wine which wasn't too bad, cost about $50. All in all would have been a great place- except the music was horrible! It was like this mix of really bad rock music. I would expect a place like that to have some lounge-y/smooth/seductive tunes on. And if rock is their thing, fine, but Id expect GOOD rock music. It was just really really bad and ruined the whole feel of the place. I hope they don't keep that playlist every night.

Pros: Perfect place for a date, really romantic ambiance

If you are looking to throw back a few rum & cokes (or any spirit for that matter), The Room is not for you. However, you will find a great wine and beer selection and an ambience that shouts lets get a little closer. The Room is a perfect little date spot but small groups of friends have been known to enjoy the experience as well. For a full venue profile, go to NightLifeRatings . com

The Room only serves beers and wines - but their selection has variety! This hidden room is a great place to take a date for an after dinner beer - kick back and listen to The Killers. It's better on the slow nights as the busy nights tends to attract uber-hip, Soho wannabes.

PROS: Laid back, friendly bartenders
CONS: Busy nights = trashy crowd

A great little bar tucked out of the way, but nonetheless many people still manage to find it. Great selection of beers and wine served in a dark cosy ambience. With an almost painfully hip soundtrack you find an arty SoHo / Eurotrash crowd with the occasional Jersey princess. Only complaint is that the music volume is pumped up on a Friday night making that intimate conversation impossible.

Pros: Ambience, Drink Selection

If the couches are taken and the bar is full you are left with the bar space behind the bar which is very dark and there is not air back there. I ordered a Boddington's beer which MUST be allowed to sit after the draft is pours. The bartender just shoved it at me after pouring it.

A waitress came over and picked up my companion's wine glass without asking if you wanted another one or even speaking to us. We concluded they must have been running low on glasses in the back and needed some clean ones..
The wine itself was good.

They should serve some finger food.

The Room provides all you need to successfully get started with your date. It's like being at a party with a bunch of friends. You'll be served promptly, nobody will disturb your activities afterwards. The lights are bright enough to recognize your date and dark enough to not feeling intimidated. The music's like a perfect mixture of your personal CD collection.

In one sentence: It worked out!

The room is a great little place if you're looking to relax with a good beer. It's dark and intimate, yet also very small and could get way too crowded on weekends. Go on a weekday.
