The owner stole $10 from me. I owed $10 and gave him a $20. He did not give me change and instead ignored me, even though it was a very slow night. When I asked him, he pretended that he had not even served me at all, as if to make me appear stupid. He called me a liar in front of all my friends, he intentionally tried to humiliate me. I argued politely with him and we came to a compromise where he provided two drink vouchers. Ten minutes later though, he had me physically removed from the bar when I tried to find out his name (for BBB reporting purposes). On the way out, the bouncer "accidentally" dropped a $10 bill on the sidewalk, as if to suggest that I had lost my money on the street and not to the dishonest, conniving owner. I refused to pick up the money, knowing how the scam worked. They attempt to rob unsuspecting customers, then unsubtley buy them off if said victims catch on to the tricks. The owner came out and threatened to call the police on *me,* the person who had just been swindled and manhandled. I intend to file Better Business Bureau and Consumer Protection reports, if you have similar experiences, please email me.

Pros: None

Cons: Dishonerst, Socially Inept Management

Planned a promotional party for our film company here and got jerked around by the owner and manager from the second we got there.
First nobody was there to let us in at the scheduled time. When we got in an HOUR late, we were informed that they had planned TWO other parties that night, so we couldn't use the back room, raffle off the gift items we'd brought (because we couldn't make announcements that would break the music that WE PROVIDED!), or show any graphic images. At a porn-themed party they'd agreed to have.
The owner would not let in friends of the promotional team who were throwing the party, saying they weren't on "the list," even though there was no list. The drinks were overpriced. Because there were THREE parties going on on, it was so hot and crowded you could hardly move, especially because the space is smaller than advertised.
NEVER going back.

Pros: There's booze.

Cons: Ownership and management are horrible.

Me and a friend looked at the reivews for Plan B and thought we can give it a try. You definitely cannot judge this place by the outside. From the outside, it does not look too small, but it in the inside it was way to small. I don't know if it was too packed or what.. but we had to get out of there! We paid a cover charge and struggled and was pushed through the crowd to check out the back because we always look around. Plan B is the type of place where you order a drink and someone spills it right on you before you can take a sip!! ugh.. what a waste. We went to Solas right around the neighborhood and had a blast. Solas is more roomy since it has 2 floors.

I am warning you.. do not go to Plan B if you dont like overcrowded places!

Pros: NONE

Cons: crowded, cannot move, music did not sound good for the minute i was there, not trendy, no dancing

.

The only reason my friends and I went to Plan B was to see a certain DJ spin. I had heard about how crowded it was, and sure enough, they were true. After a $5 cover + $3 coat check, we had stayed for an hour. We would've left sooner but we wanted to make the best of it and tried to dance, but it was nearly impossible to move anywhere without people bumping into you... and people weren't even dancing anyway. On top of it, it wasn't dark enough; we had moved to the entrance where there was more room, but there isn't a speaker installed there so we couldn't even hear the awesome music being played.

Pros: Good music, location

Cons: crowded, unattractive drunk people falling everywhere

.

I've been to Plan B twice on Friday nights and both experiences were consistently good. One of Fridays the DJ was amazing and mixed different types of music really well (mainly hip hop with some other cool stuff mixed in). I like Plan B as a low key place to hang out without all the pomp and circumstance of the city. I still like the uppity, cutesy lounges but this place I think is a nice balance and also a great area. Better to get there early since it's not a huge location. I've gotten there at 1 and it was fine, but it's just more ideal to get there earlier.

I recently organized a birthday party there and it was a real let down. I wasnt able to get a private space but they assured me the main space would be plenty room. HUGE mistake. The place was packed packed packed...crammed with 21 year old kids drunk out of their minds. The whole night waiters and busboys ran around us carrying huge crates of beer and other stuff. we couldnt stand or dance in peace for even one second. The music was very average and the DJ was really rude and disconnected from the crowd...I think she was high or something. The manager completely ignored us all night long..so much for the free drinks for the birthday person they promote on their website. I dont know how they can allow so many people into such a tiny place...arent there rules for that stuff? We ran out of there in an hour hoping to find some place we could actually have some fun. A huge let down. Even if you do snag a private room be prepared to be squashed! Too many far far better places in our city to have to deal with this. Should be renamed Plan Z.

Pros: Nice location...tons of bars around

Cons: Watered down drinks, super crowded

My friend was really excited about having a great birthday party and found Plan B on Shecky's. It seemed pretty awesome - she was promised a $20 open bar from 11pm to 1am, as well as a big, private area for her 25+ guests. I have to also add that she called to confirm this more than twice.

So, a bunch of us arrive at 5 minutes to 11pm to find that our tables had people at them, which we didn't really find to be a big deal. When we were given the area to ourselves, the waitress came by and collected everyones' 20 bucks, only to come back ten minutes later saying that it's actually $30 a person. Then she proceeds to tell us that we can only get drinks at the bar and she's not allowed to serve us. (NOTE: It was so incredibly crowded, we couldn't even SEE the bar, let alone get to it.)

Here comes the best part: at right past midnight, a bartender tells us that our open bar ends at 12, not 1. He even got nasty with me when I tried to explain to him the original agreement my friend was promised. He did let us take our drinks though, without an extra charge, after he made them. When we saw our waitress again, we told her what happened and she responded by saying that we can get drinks until 12:30.

It was as if everyone in the bar made up rules as they went along. Needless to say, my friends and I will never step foot in Plan B again.

Just as an added bonus - one of the three tiny bathrooms this place had kept locking people in it and by the end of the night, someone kicked a giant hole, half the size of the door, to escape. Haha.

Have been here several times with friends both as a pre-party and post-party spot - always a good time. the music is hot and the drinks are strong and cheap. cute bartenders, too! just hope more people don't find out about it!

Pros: great music/DJ, good scene, no cover

Cons: can get pretty crowded on weekends

.

I have been imbibing at Plan B for several years now! Plan B is the perfect spot for cocktailing with a small group or you can reserve a private room. Ask for Josh if you want to book a party....he is extremely helpful and cute, to boot! Plan B rocks!

Pros: e. village, loungey

This is my second year throwing my birthday party at Plan B and this time was just as good or better than the 1st. The Entire staff made sure that my Party ran smoothly from the Manager to the Barbacks. The Coctail Waitress always made sure there wasn't an empty glass at the table. I am especially happy because they have the same DJ there who i loved and plays great music. She keeps the party moving...I have been to many places and i must say that Plan B is one of my FAVORITES. I will always come back and have fun here....to those who have never been to Plan B....it's a MUST!!!!

Pros: staff, prices, crowd, music

Cons: none

After reading the below reviews, i felt compelled to write one of my own. I hang out at Plan B quite frequently, and find it to be one of the best venues in the city. The staff is courteous and polite, the crowd is eclectic and fun, the drinks are fairly priced and the music is amazing. I am surprised to read the negative reviews, as I have had an unbelievable time at Plan B with my friends every time I have visited. Some idiot below commented that the DJ was not spinning, but was using her Mac and a poor playlist. Its called Serato, moron. All DJs now use the program (saves you from carrying 200 lbs of records), which allows you to manipulate MP3 as vinyl. Its no different than spinning records. And yes, they play a lot of classics and music that you don't hear everywhere else. That's a GOOD thing.... unless of course you are not openminded enough to dance to anything more than "Sexyback."

All in all, its a great alternative to the unfortunate "model and bottle" scene that plagues New York. Its the perfect mix of neighborhood bar, trendy lounge and night club. Enjoy.

This place has definitely gone down hill since being voted "best private party venue in 2005"! I would say its the worst private party venue now!! Management needs to get their act together if they want to keep customers coming back. Our party was kicked out because manager was idiotic enough to double book the room. This place was ridiculously crowded, they really should put a limit on how many people they allow in. Bouncer and waitress were very friendly, I'm sorry they have to put up with hearing complaints about their manager. Not worth making the effort!

This is the worst bar in NYC. The staff are rude and dont know what they are doing. Will never ever go back. The only nice person here was the bouncer.

Great music, dancing, and lounge areas. Its advantage is that it is not too big, but this is also a disadvantage as it can easily get crowded.

After talking to a couple of friends from the city and reading the other rave reviews about Plan B, I decided it would be the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday with friends. I couldn't have made a better choice! The owner, Jason, and the general manager, Jordan, both helped me make my evening one to remember. There were absolutely no problems and everything was just amazing. Although it isnt very big, it was comfortable and relaxing. Great music, great people, great service, great everything! I highly recommend Plan B for private parties or to just go and have some drinks with friends. In fact, I enjoyed myself so much that I went back this weekend!

Cons: Absolutely nothing!

Begininng of the night (11ish) not so bad. When you go, roll deep and secure a spot to call your own. Music was ok - drinks were good, staff was very nice. No complaints.
Come an hour or two later, it was a scene from one of Caligula's memories. If you smoke (here's the dirty emperor part) wear a chastity belt - walking through the crowd to get outside wins you a first-class ticket to unsolicited groping. Not the bar's fault - I may have just been there on schmuck night.
Truth should use that in one of their ad campaigns to get people to quit smoking...

I venture into Plan B for all kinds of occasions. It's a fun place for birthday parties especially but also serves as a great place to satisify the black-out. Obviously there isn't an abundance of space and sometimes the crowd can be too overwhelming. Such is the case at popular NYC lounges, so if you want to check out a place that isn't trendy, you'll have no problem stretching your legs or holding your drink on one finger with your eyes closed at other nearby joints. Anyway, the bartenders are friendly and work their tails off for the tips. On the rare night, you may need to avoid the pink collars, gangbangers, and slobs. Maybe that's your bag, but regardless, a good time can be had if you bring the right crew. The music is bangin', offering up old school 90's rap interspersed with classic 80s jams. If you're into Kanye West, or if your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, this is your bar. I also recommend getting to know the friendly staff as they'll make your night much better (there's a secret cookie room that can be accessed with the right code: clue, the fictional kicker Dan Marino's hated most). Here you'll find the widest array of cookies as well as $1 Bud Light drafts served in contruction worker helmets. A real treat.
There might be other spots in the village with better music and more space, but if you're looking to throw a sweet gig at a hip lounge, check it out.

If you make the bad decision to visit this establishment, make sure you have a nice PLAN B in mind, as in another place to go once you realize the poor decision you have made. Let's start with the crowd - if you enjoy being body slammed into sweaty people who are sloshing their drinks around then plan b is the place for you. It takes about 25 minutes to make your way through the crowd to get to the bar. Once you arrive at the bar, the over priced ,watered down drinks are really worth it. I would suggest getting 2 drinks while you are there. You need one to quench your parched throat as you fight your way back through the crowds to get back to your friends. Why would one need to quench their parched throats? Because the temperature is roughly that of a desert. People were actually walking outside just to get some air.

My friends and I planted ourselves in a little seating area right next to the door. If after reading this review, you still make the decision to visit this stellar venue, I suggest claiming this seating area as your own as well. You can catch drifts of cold air as the front door opens, actually hear your friends over the new hot beats coming from the DJ (ie Rumpshaker, Informer, and Hip Hop Hooray). And the best part of sitting at this area is once you come to your senses and know its time to leave, you are that much closer to the door!

This past weekend I hosted my boyfriend's 24th Birthday at Plan B. There were about 20 of us and I called ahead of time and reserved a table. I spoke with Jordan and he was wonderful! I wanted to have a party where I wouldn't have to worry about anything and both my boyfriend and I could really enjoy his birthday with all of our friends. Jordan made sure that everything was completely seamless! The music was great, the booths were huge and accommodated our large group with our own dancing space. I was able to take a step back and see what a great time all of our guests were having as well. The drinks were great and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this place for a Birthday Party or group party. There was a great vibe and good croud. We will be back really soon!

thee service was great was great first of all the cocktail waitresses were excellent!! and music if i was tapping my feet i was throwing them up. the bartenders know how to work and might i say they were entertaining and full of life. I advise for people to come here the crowd is great and happening.if i wasnt dancing i was at the bar ordering a drink which was very fast service once i said it and turned my head to look at some guy there it was. The music was great all night! i am just surprised by the service how fast it is and how the bartenders work so fast i like all the bartenders that worked last night and the d.j!!!!

Cool place to dance and drink. Bday party there seemed success. Music mix that incorporates Grandmaster Flash and Chic and JayZ is always popular with me. And decor, crowd wuz right on. BUT The bartenders were moving like friggin molasses!! I just signed up for Citysearch so I could tell you people how much the bartenders sucked!!! I don't care if the bartender was a babe and her tattoo was perfectly placed on small of her back and she seemed very flexible. She was still egregiously ignoring me, very rude bartending! Think she was upset because I was not showing interest in her shaking asss. Yes, that has to be it...
Anyways, cool venue for dance party, cool DJ friday night; but people - remember that Arkdiggity had enough trouble to get a drink that he posted it on the web, which I never bothered doing before.
And they did start playing the lame stuff ("Walk this Way", Bon Jovi, etc) kind of early 2am and seemed to very directly be ending the party

Anyways, cool venue for dance party, cool DJ friday night; but people - remember that Arkdiggity had enough trouble to get a drink that he posted it on the web, which I never bothered doing before.
And they did start playing the lame stuff ("Walk this Way", Bon Jovi, etc) kind of early 2am and seemed to very directly be ending the party

Pros: Music was good until 2am

Cons: Bartenders were Rude

.

This place is the best! I just had my 25th birthday party and it could not have gone smoother. Everyone on my guest list got in without a problem, we all got drunk of the reasonably priced drinks, and the staff was so accomadating. We rented the front white room and we were able to have privacy and also float onto the dance floor. The DJ played the best mix of music and we danced until 4am! It was a bit crowded at times but the music was so good we didn't care!!! I might consider having my next bday at the B again!!!!!

I normally go to the west side to party, but my friend last night had a birthday at Plan B and I found a new spot that I can invite my friends in the future. It was busy, but the bartenders made the drinks fast and the DJ played hot music that gave great energy to the crowd. The staff worked well with the party and the bouncers and door host made it a priority to let the parties in without a wait especially in the cold! I definitly recommend Plan B to others who haven't experienced their party. Thanks.

I have started going to plan B more and more lately. I discovered it when I went to a charity event a couple of months ago. I later found out that they have a great varety of nights, people and music.. I always go with my girlfriends now and always seem to meet new people. Its busy on the weekends, and the other nights seem to have a lot to offer too, like the drum & bass party on sunday.. they have a very hot bartender on friday nite.....check him out.. ..? anyways, I really like it there, hot bartenders aside, its great fun and it is now our plan A.

This place is overly crowded on the weekend. The music is good, so are the prices, but the service could use some brushing up. I am not appealled by the "cover" which is on and off it seems depending on the bouncer's mood.

I had never been here before, but after reading some great reviews I decided to have a small birthday get-together at plan b on Saturday night. I had tried to reserve a space because I heard it gets pretty crowded, but their private rooms were all booked up.
The night started out kind of weird, the guy at the door stared at my liscense for the longest time and then even had to ask me to provide another source of ID... never had that before! i havent been 21 for a while already.
Although it was crowded and the space is kind of small, the music was great (mix of current pop/hip hop music and a few 80s songs), the drinks were well priced (they are also not cheap with the alcohol!) and everyone enjoyed themselves. My only gripe was that when we asked the dj if we could request any songs she was a quite rude.
Overall, I'd come back!

My bf & i had a double bday celebration here and we had a blast. Not only did we get free drinks all night, all our guests had a great time... We were told to be there at least by 11:30 or else my guests & i would be asked for cover.. We got there at almost midnight coz we did some pre-partying at our hotel suite and they let us in no problem... The place got really crowded but it was bearable... our waitress was over the top... josh and jordan, the party coordinators were great....over all it was a great time...

Pros: Great Environment

The bartender on Thursday night was a really rude person. Only interested in who were either his close friends or girls he was trying to mack it to. Otherwise he was extremely rude to everyone else, male or female. I'd rather go somewhere where I don't have to interact with someone so moody.

I have to give it to the people at Plan B. I have been to a few parties on the weekends there and they were a blast. The white room was perfect for the party i attended. This time i had my party on a thursday and it was just as fun. The DJ's were playing a great mix of music and there was so much dancing(I even got on the stripper pole). Needless to say, my party was flawless thanks to the staff and the music. I look to do more in the future.

This site says it's good for happy hour and that is not true unless you and your group like to be the only one there afterwork. I picked this placed because of all the reviews, and a little down. It's small, and seating area is resv. only. Since we were there early the white room was availiable to sit and chat. around 9pm, people started to trickle in, but not a lot. we left that place around 10pm, and there was a small crowd. This place might be ok after 11 pm.

I've noticed that people repeatedly have listed "over crowded" as a con. But is a place being over crowded really that bad? There's reason for the madness. I attended a birthday here once before and had a blast. Awesome crowd, cheap drinks and friendly/attractive bartenders/waitresses. Just recently hosted a birthday and the night was even better. The folks at Plan B were helpful and friendly. No complications and everything was straight to the point. Plus, you can't find a better birthday deal.

Hosted a party here recently and had a great time! The guys that run this place are good people that know a good time. We rented the white room and reserved the tables right outside. It was so much fun! Drinks were not expensive which is always good. DJ was great, perfect party atmosphere. The only *one* complaint is that they let way to many outside people in. We booked a room, a bunch of tables and told them we were expecting about 80pp, there also another private with all the outside people it got so crowded and hot after midnight a few people in our just party left. Other then that it was great.

I just had my friend's 26th Birthday there and it went off without a hitch. Everyone was courteous and helpful from the time we got to the door until the time we left. Thanks to Ian and Esther, you guys are great.

We had the White Room which is comfortable for 20 or more people. Bottles weren't absurd and the wait staff was extremely attentive. The music was really good as well; not always dance stuff but consistantly good. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know jack about music. Jordan and Josh, you guys run a great place.

All in all, this place was great. Friendly people, zero attitude at the door, no pretense. If you're planning a party or just stopping in for a few drinks, you'll have fun at Plan B.

I just had my birthday party at Plan B on February 18th. It was amazing. The room was perfect for my group, though I can see why some have complained about it being crowded. I would recommend no more than 25-30 people for the white room. I had 25 and everyone had a seat and room to move. The music was great. My friends and I spend a lot of time dancing on our chairs. The service was great. Our waitress was attentive and very nice. We also ordered a couple of snacks, which were delicious. I would recommend Plan B to anyone wishing to have a great private party.

I went online and inquired about hosting a birthday. I got a phone call the next day from the management. I emailed a list of people and the night of the party, there was an area set aside for us, 2 tables + standing room. I also got a wristband and was able to drink for free the whole night. Everything was perfect and the night was great. The dance floor was fun but crowded. DJ played great music until closing. Highly recommended

My friends and I had no plans a couple of weeks ago and decided to go to Plan B. What a GREAT PLAN. The place was rockin' the crowd was great and we partied all night long. I had been there before for a private party but had not gone on my own. Well, I'm glad I did cause it's the hippest little lounge in NYC and I'll be going again and again.

I love salsa ,and i go to a lot of salsa parties around town. I have heard about this band that is playing at plan B on wednesdays from some friends of mine and i went to check them out. The energy of the party was excellent! People dancing and drinking while the band played amazing afro-cuban salsa. In between the band playing the DJ continued the wide veriety of salsa music. We danced our ass off all night. Great mojitos, great music, and an excellent party. I recommend this to all you salsa lovers out there!

I am new in town and some of my co-workers said that I should check out this bar. I was there on a sat. The atmophere was great and the service was even better. Around 11pm the back got really packed so I moved to the front bar and the two bartenders (who are great to look at) had me drinking all night. This place is great if you want to avoid all the drama that come's with the bigger clubs. Drinks are not expensive and the music was good...

I booked a party here for 60-70 people, but I've only seen the place online. I let one of the managers know I was coming by to check the place out and he said he would meet with me. I go there...it was empty first of all, but the place is so small i dont know how even 50 people would fit. The online pics on the website are sooo misleading, especially for the main room. So, i tell one of the bartenders I'm looking for the manager because i booked a party and want to speak with him. So she gives me this spacey look and tells me she doesnt know where he is. Doesnt go and try to find him for me or anything. Its not like she was busy! SOOOOO Dissapointed. Definitley having my party somewhere else.

Recently celebrated a birthday with Plan B and all expectations were both met and exceeded. Jordan and Josh know what how to organize an event as all guests were treated with respect both at the door and in the lounge while the music and drinks were absolutely top-notch. The White Room provided a great respite from the constantly grooving (and packed!) dance floor and Ian (party organizer) made sure both my guests and I were taken care of throught the night. If you want it all: strong drinks, attractive people, good door policy, current music and a venue that will truly care about your event-- look no further than Plan B.

Usually for me, I can never go back to a place more than once and always have a great time, except when I go back to plan b. I have been here numerous times with different friends and it never disappoints me or my friends. It is always great fun had by all, from the music, to the atmosphere.

If you haven't been, you should go, and if you have been go again for another great evening spent.

We were treated really well starting from the cute doorman to the staff inside. We actually got some free shots for dancing on the pole. It was busy but everyone was dancing and having a blast. The crowd was attractive. We will definitly go back.

I have been to Plan B in the past just to dance, and hang out. Not too bad. A friend decided to have a birthday get together, and didn't get the booth she requested, got excuse after excuse from Jordan, and the music was awful. The place got way too crowded, as usual, and the service was bad. It took forever to get drinks. Never going back.

I am writing another review because I have gotten to like these guys so much over the last 6 months on my trips to NYC. I was in from LA again this week and went back to Plan B for some more downtown partying. I am telling you there is nowhere that is as chill with it's music and atmosphere. No BS is what I am talking about. Coming from LA where it's annoying and going to most of the so called, "spots" in Manhattan, it becomes more of a lame process than an engaging evening. I never have trouble at the door and the people are always so nice; staff and party people. I told the guys at Plan B I would give them some more love so here it is. I have been spreading the word and it is working, the bar is ROCKING!! XOXOXO

Finally!! A place with style, great drinks, beautiful people, hot music and NO ATTITUDE! I had my party at plan b this past weekend and it was such a blast. We had great service , got wasted and danced until they closed! No velvet rope drama at the door, everyone was so friendly. The only con if I had to pick one was that it got a bit crowded for a minute, but hey, I would rather be in a busy and happening place than an empty one. Can't blame everybody for wanting to come down, I am definately going there again
