Cute dance spot. I go on Thurs for ladies night. They play all types of music. I stay clear of the free Martini's (cheap alcohol makes me sick). But I always have a good time here.

I went to this lounge to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. We were dancing and having fun when a bar back shoves my boyfriend out of his way. My boyfriend naturally says next time say excuse me. The barback calls the bouncers over and has my boyfriend thrown out. There were no threats no threatening body language none of us were inebriated. I call to speak with the owner and whoever I speak to was completely rude about the situation and would not here me out... XXXXXX them out!!!!

Went for my friends birthday party this past friday . Had the time of my life. I danced all night; the dj knew what to play and when to play it. Awesome .We are all going back for new years eve..Had a great time., The bouncers could be a little more friendlier however,although the doorman was very pleasant. Will return.

This low class place is filled with low class people - from the ownership to the patrons. Sha-nae-naes coming out to rock the night. Chaos everyone. poor drinks, poor ventilation, crammed club, no dance floor, etc. I would be embarrased to go here.. especially those that commute to go here. It's sad that this is where you would spend your weekend nights. I really feel bad for the neighborhood. This place brings the neighborhood down.

I am so glad I found Bartinis because this place has become the place where I can have most all of my friends come out to and I know they will have a good time. Its local so its easily accessible and there is valet parking. SInce the City clubs are expensive and the music sometimes is random, I know that ever thurs and Fri when my DJ spins, I will have a great time. The music is a mix of reggae, dancehall, hip-hop, pop and 90s. I swear there are nights when I won't sit for 2 mins because every song that comes on gets me moving. The bartenders are so quick with your drinks and there are crazy assortments of martinis. Its definately a place where you can take your whole crew out and where there be something for everyone. If you are looking for convinience, and good time with friends and no hassle on admissions, long lines or for drinks- than Bartinis is your place.

Cons: hot since its in the basement

This review requires a rating of atleast one star to be published but this place deserves stars to the negative. They use cheap alcohol. The crowd is too far over 21 and unnattractive. The place is filthy and disgusting. There is old gum all over the floor. The couches must be fifty years old or more. The tables are dirty. For the most important part, the Bouncers are extremely disgusting. One in particular- the tallest and darkest one, is aggressive and violent. Police have been called on the bouncers many times but as usual the police are useless especially since a majority of them are uneducated and never get to the bottom of an issue because their only job is to make things easy on themselves. This place is not where you want to spend your weekened for any occasion. If you have any class, shame, respect, and value do not attend Bartinis in Forest Hills. Do not be fooled by the upperclass neighborhood that surrounds it. Locals should be embarrased of this venue.

this place sucks.. unsafe.. rowdy crowd (ghetto fabulous) and it feels like you are in a crypt... If you hang out there often your lungs will fill up with mold. It is pretty dark and damp down there. Not a good place for a bar. They should just convert it to storage space.

This place is the basement of a residential building. It has no ventilation, it's ridiculously dark, there are pipes running above your head with condensation dripping on your hairdo. The couches were moist. The bouncers arent strict -they let anyone in (no dress code) so it looks like a slum and didnt feel safe. People were rude, no class. I have friends that hang out in the rocker bar across the street and they tell me there are fights every weekend. Most of the time even the bouncers cant handle the crowd. The patrons beat on the bouncers. The only pros about this place were that the drinks were reasonably priced and the bartender was cute. Go into the city instead - the LIRR is right across the street - take it to Penn Station - you'll get there in 12 min. The commute will be worth it.

Bartini's is great for a late night, after which you can just stumble home. It is quite nice to have a very decent bar/club/lounge in your neighborhood. The staff is very friendly and the bartender, that has a "Jason Statham" look, is super easy on the eye and makes great drinks! Thank you for those intricate and delicious pink concoctions. Yes, the staff is memorable and can remember bar-goers even if they visited Bartini's some 7 months back. As for the DJ on Fridays, or at least on 01/30/09, was not as impressive. I don't see why some songs have to re-played 2-3 times a night. Regardless, we had a great night and will be back soon!

well this is a good place to be on a friday or saturday night. ive been here alot and the bouncers are fuckers but the drinks are pretty good and with over 600 martinis youre sure to find something you like. One person that works there is extremely georgous (shes anonymous). i know her she is a very kind person i sometimes see her around and talk to her a little bit. She is a nice woman. The music is great and the crowds are pretty good. the fact that its located at 1 station square is convenient.

I've been to this place a few times already and have enjoyed myself every time. Because of it's convenient location, it's the place my friends and I use to start our night, but we never want to leave. Fridays nights are the best there. I'm pretty tired of the lame manhattan clubs, where you have to wait to have a good time...Bartinis is not the case. It's always a good time. I read the last review, and have to agree that yes it is in a basement, but if you're just looking to have a good time, dance, drink and hang out with your friends, than this is the place to be.

Normally I would let a club that annoyed me like this just let it slide but after reading these rave reviews about this place and then dragging my friends to go to this place after pestering them during the week I had to dispel the myths. First off this is NOT a club (notice how not one person points this out) it's a basement LOUNGE at a hotel with a DJ. Whenever you get into a basement place then a whole host of problems ensues just by nature. It has no ventilation, it's ridiculously dark, there are pipes running above your head and it feels like a cave. It will also take you five seconds to walk from one end to the other. I am not kidding. I couldn't get over how small the place was. Which I could excuse if it was an illegal speakeasy or a club in Ohio but we are living in one of the most glamourous cities in the world and it annoys me to attend a place that isn't bigger than my living room.

If the place is that small its all fine and good by me but dont' try and make it into something that its not which is a club. It is too dark and loud to be successful as a "lounge". I guess I could would be fine if the music was really popping but it was nothing but spanish music on a friday night. Again I would not have cared had the reviewers here didn't talk about famous DJs who came.

Yes there is no cover charge and the drinks are reasonably priced but I truly couldn't stand to be there for more than a couple of hours (I'm surprised I lasted that long). I mean the place is fine for what it is which is a local hole in the wall that is a good alternative when you have no money, want somewhere to hang with your friends and don't want to get really dressed up (which I was and felt weird). But do not mistake this place on any level as a substitute for a manhattan club or lounge because it could never hope to measure up.

I have been coming to Bartini's for years now and I have told many people about this awesome place. Every time I go there I just know I will have a great time. I have been there on a few Fridays and Saturdays, but my favorite night to go is on Thursdays because of those free drinks. The door staff is always friendly, and respectful. There is never a cover charge no matter what night it is and that is just perfect because they have a well stocked bar and bartenders who know a lot about mixology. The crowd is diverse which is cool, and that means that the DJ will play a little bit of everything. The DJ is really good by the way. It can get pretty hot down there at times which is okay you just have to go back upstairs and hang out for a few minutes then rejoin the party. The women's bathroom has issues from time to time, but that is nothing to stop you from having a great time as long as you go there to dance and drink and not to hang out in the bathroom. Bartini?s is a lot of fun I love it there!

Ive been here about 4 times since moving back from California Oct 07 and I enjoy every single time. Ive only gone on Thursdays with my 2 bff's cuz we enjoy the free drinks til 11pm :)
The bathrooms could be better but its a rather small ladies room with alot of females going in and out so what can you expect?
I dont think that a bad review should be based on one isolated event but the overall experience. Every time Ive gone the music has been real good and the dance areas and bartenders just as well. We are going there tonight and as always, I expect to have a good time!

I like to try new places everytime I go out and I like to have a good time. I can't tell you the number of times I've went to other places in Queens and Manhattan and ended up treking right back to Bartinis even if it means me getting there at 2 am cuz I know for sure that those 2 hours will be worth it--> the music, the drink and the atmosphere is soo soo great.

The bouncers at the door are very nice and once when an overseas friend was visiting and had sneakers on they let him in ( mind you I have no connections at this lounge whatsoever). The DJ is excellent and very receptive if you ask for a change of music.

One of the best things however is NO COVER CHARGE..which I think is pretty awesome. It means I can buy more drinks (that are reasonably priced) and tip the waitresses and bartenders better.

I'd definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to have a good time on a friday night.

I totally love this place. I have been to tons of places in NYC and grown quite tired of the pretentious and foo foo type clubs where everyone is trying so hard to impress strangers. Bartinis is not the case. Just a bunch of people who want to have a good time.
It's one of those great hole in the wall places that I just keep coming back to. Why?
THE DJ! He's fabulous! I have been living here for 27 years and I can say that the music is far better here than any of the hundreds of other places I've been before. If you're looking to dance and have a good time with a great looking crowd, then this is the place. Thursdays (ladies night) and Friday nights are the best. The best dj works those nights. He spins everything from old school hip hop to 2008 soca to dance to r&b to.....EVERYTHING!
The new manager is very attentive and inviting, qualities you usually don't find in nightclub managers,so you're sure to be taken good care of.
This is the spot.

I have been going to Bartinis for years and Love it especially Thursday nights. Ladies drink free cosmos and apple martinis from 10 to 12 and the resident Thursday Night DJ is awesome . Just Last Thursday they had Dj Sizzahandz of Crooklyn Clan there -- he was awesome. So if your looking for a great time just chillax bartinis is the place.

I Go There On Thrusdays Sometimes. The Music Always Good And Its Not Overcrowed. But I Was Shocked To See Dj Sizzahands There, I Paid 60 Dollars To See Him In The City. How The Hell Could They Afford To Have Him There When There Is No Cover Charge. Had Fun Took A Picture With Him And Got A Free CD..But I Was Late For Work On Friday. Oh Well

The very first time I visited this place, I was blown away by the music. As a DJ/Remixer myself, their resident DJ for Fridays is no doubt one of the best I've ever heard in action. Another highlight is that the drinks are served in a tall glass filled to the brim. Even drinks on the rocks are plentiful and very nicely priced (about $6-8). The ethnic diversity of the crowd displays a part of what NY is all about and everyone is warm and friendly. The bartenders are well dressed and classy and they certainly know how mix your drink of choice to perfection. Ever since my first visit, I've officially made this place my Friday night spot and each week seems to be filled with more pleasant surprises. Every person that I've introduced to Bartinis has had no complains and all I am asked is when I will take them back. Please do check this place out for a fun filled night where you can just be yourself and sit back, and get lost in the music.. or if you're like me, just get up out of that oh so very comfortable sofa and get your dance on.

What more can a girl ask for? Well, I guess a solid DJ! But, with a free drink in hand, it doesn't matter much. The eye candy isn't anything to write home about, but at least you have the bartenders. My faves are Izzi and Dikey (spell check on both names). Ladies, if you are in the area on a Thursday, go between the hours of 10 and 12 for free Cosmos or Appletinis!!!

HANDS DOWN the place to be on a Saturday night if you're going to be in Queens. I've been a customer here for over 5 years and I still return because I never had better service anywhere! From the managers, security staff, and especially the bartenders and the DJ. The Bar and the Music is the KEY to any lounge. If you've got the music and great drinks~nothing else matters~bottom line!! The bartenders at Bartini's on any given night actually KNOW how to make a drink. That's important because this place is always busy and if you're going to wait 10 minutes (not "20") for a drink they make sure to hook you up so it's worth the wait - trust me!!! Miss Kitten (comment below) apparently had trouble with her training-bra the night she disgracefully showed face at Bartini's because the bartenders are HOT and educated (they are both college graduates by the way - it's obvious who lacks the education MISS KITTEN). And the DJ - let's put it this way - you're not going to find better DJ's on a Saturday night ANYWHERE ELSE. Everybody in this place is friendly and simply come here to have a good time and guaranteed that's what you will have. Ask any customer there and they'll say they come back because the music is off the hook, people are friendly and the place is banging! Granted the bathrooms can be cleaner but hey - when you gotta go, you go...LOL. AND the best part is ~ there's never a cover charge. It's dangerous to have this much fun!!! MEOW *wink*

HANDS DOWN the place to be on a Saturday night if you're going to be in Queens. I've been a customer here for over 5 years and I still return because I never had better service anywhere! From the managers, security staff, and especially the bartenders and the DJ. The Bar and the Music is the KEY to any lounge. If you've got the music and great drinks~nothing else matters~bottom line!! The bartenders at Bartini's on any given night actually KNOW how to make a drink. That's important because this place is always busy and if you're going to wait 10 minutes (not "20") for a drink they make sure to hook you up so it's worth the wait - trust me!!! Miss Kitten (comment below) apparently had trouble with her training-bra the night she disgracefully showed face at Bartini's because the bartenders are HOT and educated (they are both college graduates by the way - it's obvious who lacks the education MISS KITTEN). And the DJ - let's put it this way - you're not going to find better DJ's on a Saturday night ANYWHERE ELSE. Everybody in this place is friendly and simply come here to have a good time and guaranteed that's what you will have. Ask any customer there and they'll say they come back because the music is off the hook, people are friendly and the place is banging! Granted the bathrooms can be cleaner but hey - when you gotta go, you go...LOL. AND the best part is ~ there's never a cover charge. It's dangerous to have this much fun!!! MEOW *wink*

.

They finally got the Saturday DJ right, LOL. If you want the best music (all genres), local spot, great drinks and friendly customers? This is the place to be on a Saturday night. I haven't been here in a while because the music was so-so on Saturdays, but it's on now - I got my Saturday night spot. The music is phenomenal, you won't stop dancing and the drinks are great, very strong! It gets busy so be prepared to wait a bit for your drinks, but it's worth every penny and wait! As for "Kittenz799" (below comment), you poor soul - it's Victoria's Secret mama, you too can purchase your own push-up bra there and pray that you look as good as these bartenders. If you're going to trash talk the staff in regards to their education I recommend you follow your own advice...GET AN EDUCATION! You don't know how to write and you're incorrectly using your punctuation. If you've traveled the world as you stated then you would know that Cavos in Astoria is not the best place on earth and certainly will not beat out Bartini's. And that bartender guy that takes your picture without you asking him, he's gay!! LOL. Not that there's anything wrong with being gay, but he's gay! So "Kittenz799" continue your travels and don't come back to Bartini's. This is a friendly and fun environment, from upper management down to the bar back and there's no room for nasty / bitter people such as yourself. **YOUR stinky attitude made that night (2/16/08) smell**

Pros: Music ~ drinks ~ valet

Cons: None that I noticed

I have been in Honk Kong, Paris, Italy and many more places but never have i witnessed such phennomenal service. Starting from the Manager and ending with the bartenders. You have to understand the fact that bartenders are very fast paced workers and it would be more convenient to order all your drinks at the same time, that is if you are a person with an education. If not then you shall wait like you did for 20 minutes and then apologize yet requesting another beverage. Not all people finish highschool therefore i dont blame you. Some people work hard for there money and I think the bartenders did an outstanding job. Speed, accuracy whatever you want. I had more fun there then in Mr. Chows.

Pros: Great staff, Good music and fantastic Martinis

Cons: trailer trash females with no manners, and that pertains to the wonderful and optimistic girl who wrote that terrible review

Bartinis is disgusting The bouncer was ok & girl at coat check was friendly. Its a very trashy place. Unclean, unsanitarty ,Music sucked or I did not like the shi* playing. (2-16-08)
So I am at the bar waiting patiently for over 20 minutes. The female airhead bartenders didnt seem to know what was going on since they were too busy keeping their push up bras in place. I got the gay looking guy to take my order. I told him the three drinks we wanted. My other friend came and told me to order a malibu for her. So the gay brings all the drinks and I tell him please get me one more drink.... He became angry and tells me that next time I should tell him my order all at once. I told him the other girl just came right now and he was persistent on telling me the same shit-no please no manners no nothing
I mean I am giving him business. It is not my fault or problem he is a high school drop out or community college drop out who is stuck as a trashy bartender. I mean your just a bartender, Hellooo your nothing.. just a loser. I have been around the world and this is the first time I have experienced such nonsense.well here and at Mirage in LI... I wonder if it is because their gay? But gay men are usually nice,maybe their bigots? ..lol I dont know. So guys if you are going to stinky Bartinis please make your orders all at one time or the skinny gay guy is going to get mad... (maybe he was high on coke?) but if you want to experiment go with like few people order some drinks and then when he comes back just ask for one more and you will see what I mean :)
I think his name is Mike-not sure. White skinny gay looking guy.. no im not a bigot..lol and no im not black
so I recommend you go to Cavos in astoria-mostly European and Greeks... much classier and friendlier staff.. plus hot guy bartender who is super friendly and will take your picture for you without you asking :)
have fun :) -if you liked this place you must have been one of the drunks

Cons: nasty rude bartenders, nasty music , dirty dance floor and bathrooms and trashy people

I've been going to Bartini's on & off for about a year now and I it's a great local hangout. The Friday night DJ is so much better than the Saturday night guy. You?ll have to get past a few issues, the A/C, the smell & the ladies bathroom. It gets bleedy hot in there and sometimes it seems like the A/C isn't even working. The smell, after all these years of people throwing up and spilling stuff all over the place, it's left quite a stench behind. If they don't have a plumbing problem, there are some pretty nasty women out there. The bouncers are amazing....they're only A**holes to those who require the attention. And YES, He is Gorgeous as hell! ! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Great martini's, try the French Martini...out of this world. If you're looking for somewhere to relax and unwind, head out to Bartini's. I?ve met tons a really cool people, both men & women. If you're going to be picky about the small things, go somewhere else. Try to enjoy life and look at the bigger picture.........

I live in the neighborhood so upon the citysearch reviews i decided to go to this place 2 weeks ago on a saturday night with my husband and another couple. The bouncer told my husband he couldnt go in because he had " sneakers" on, eventhough he WAS NOT wearing sneakers! He was wearing his usual, casual, dark brown leather going out shoes with lace. But hey, i'm not gonna stand there and discuss the definition of sneakers with this bouncer. So i said whatever.. We went back to my place. After about an hour later we came back with different shoes (!!!) it was around 2 a.m already. He tells us we cant check our coats because its to late to check coats (2 a.m. ???) and going in wih our jackets was not an option! He suggestd we go back to our car leave our jackets in there and come back... Its a F**n January night, and me an the other girl are wearing very light stuff underneath so its not even an option to walk back from the car without our coats on... and the bouncer knows it too..
So i was like F**k this... I live in the neighborhood and i am not even gonna pass by this place again... that night we went to some other spot on Austin Street and eventually had fun...
There's a difference between being a cool spot and simply being A**holes!

The drinks and prices are great, the staff is even better and the bouncer (a certain one) gorgeous as hell!!!!
The crowd is excellent.... but the D.J. on saturday nights not only looks like my grandfather but he is the worst!!!!!!!!!!
now i've been there several times and there has been no improvment. i thought it was just me but its not. I thought maybe if me and my girls went on a friday night it would be better But long and be hold grandpa was there too!! I love bartinis but i need to shake my a** every once in a while but dam I only get to do that maybe 3 songs out of the night! The drinks and people make up for D.J. old bones!!! I've heard many people complaining while leaving. Bartinis If you you want a bigger crowd, better reviews put an ad in the paper for a new D.j.

Went there a few weekends ago. The staff were really nice, incl. the bartenders who were attentive and didnt have attitudes, and the drinks were decently strong. The bouncers were super cool (which is rare in NYC). One bouncer even offered my friend a bottle of water when she wasnt doing too well (if you know what i mean). Definitely going back! One piece of advice: wear shoes, they dont allow sneakers into the place ;)

i remember you and your friend that night and its true that i tried to pour out of the empty bottle. The reason behind that is was cuz it was too busy and that extra ingredient "triple sec" has barely any alcohol in it, so if anything I was doing you a favor by making you a stronger drink. I ain't mad atchya, just wanted to clarify. Come back soon!!! Peace

I went to Bartini in Forest Hills on a friday night, crowd was great, nice music. I was having a good time ,till my male bestfriend(who also is a Batender at another club) ordered me a Long Island Ice tea, as the Slimy,shady bold head,short bartender was mixing my drink, my male friend noticed he picked up a EMPTY BOTTLE and acted like he was pouring with another bottle in his other hand. my friend brought it to his attention and the slimy,shady,bold head short son of a b***h, told my friend he has a good eye and then picked up a full bottle of one of the drinks that belong in a Long ice tea and made my drink correct. So the next time you go to this club or any other clubs, when you order drinks, watch exactly what these bartenders are doing.

Pros: nice lounge with valet parking, close to home if you live in queens and dont want to drive into the city!

Cons: Slim, shady bold head bartender who tried to take customers for suckers.

This is a nice little spot if you dont feel like going into the city. Great music, nice crowd, good drinks (not as expensive at the city) and nice decor.

This is a great lounge in a great area of Queens. The Martini's are the best I've ever had, and I've had a lot. The crowd is fun, which makes it entertaining. The drinks aren't overpriced like many places just a few minutes away in Manhattan. Highly Recommended!!

This place is located by the railroad station in Forest Hills .
The good night to be there is either Friday or Saturday . The dress code is pretty casual . The drinks are expensive , be prepared to spend money

The music is good and the drinks are good. The crowd can be pretentious and the drinks expensive. It is very crowded in there...not a good place if you want to kick back and relax. But, it is a good place if you want a club atmosphere without trekking into Manhattan.

They say they have 600 martinis - I believe them. But don't order a beer - a bit overpriced for my fine borough of Queens. The lounge-y atmosphere is great though and very swanky.
