Fun place for lively evening. Food choices at Bar 515 make it an easy pick for a good and filling meal, or just for appetizers. Beer list is amazing. Prices are inexpensive. And it's big enough so that all 23 of us could have our own party spot by the waterfall in the back. We'll be back!!!!!!

Pros: cheap food, sports and music

Cons: sometimes crowded on weekends

This bar is sooo much cleaner than the other bars in the neighborhood making this a major plus. The bartenders are quick and friendly. Also they clear away the tables on the weekends making a nice size dance floor. I would def come back to this place again with my girls.. there are a lot of good looking guys here!!

WORST BARTENDERS EVER.

I was at Bar 515 on Saturday night for my friend's birthday. We were hanging in the back corner of the bar (couch area). All night, we were buying drinks and shots at the circular bar in the back room. We dealt with mostly the male bartender (brown hair, chubby) and everyone tipped for every single drink.

When I went up to the bar, waiting for the shots, the bus boy came with the huge crate and began to take away the used glasses and beer bottles off the counter. I had a half-finished beer. I was HOLDING it in my HAND when the bus boy grabbed my bottle by the mouthpiece out of my hand. When he realized that it was half-finished, he puts it back on the counter, not even an apology. Granted it was crowded and dark, so I called the bartender over and told him what happened. I asked him for a new bottle to replace the one the bus boy touched.

His response-- "I don't care, it's not my problem, there's nothing I can do". By this time, he had poured us the shots. I told him that I wasn't going to pay for the shots unless he exchanges my beer. The bus boy touched my bottle mouthpiece with his HAND. I'm not drinking that. His hand is dirty. He's been collecting used glasses all night, right in front of me. It was clearly his fault. This bartender, whom we have been tipping generously ALL NIGHT, refused to give me a new bottle.

What was even more ridiculous was that after I told him that I wasn't paying fo the shots, he threw the shots out. So, he would rather throw away $16 worth of liquor than to replace a $6 beer? It was ridiculous. Of course, you can imagine that I was pissed off. I demanded to speak to the manager. He waved me off and told me to go find him myself.

I found a waitress. Told her what happened, and she told me to speak to the main bartender on duty for the night by the front bar. So, after telling him the story again, I did finally get a replacement bottle. However, no one apologized. No one was courtesy.

No tip-paying customer should be treated like this. That bartender in the back room should be fired.

DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR.

Pros: good music

Cons: rude bartenders

I like the fact there is a mix of age groups in Bar 515 versus the under 30 crowd at other 3rd ave bars. You can go there alone but you won't feel lonely. Happy Hour drink specials are VERY reasonable. I have never eaten there but my observations tell me the food is good. The staff(bartenders, wait staff and door security) are professional and friendly.

All 23 of us met up at Bar 515 for some burgers and apps and beer. The juicy burgers are outstanding. What's even better --- the prices are downright cheap.
We decided to stay and went to the back bar & waterfall lounge area. I just luved the live DJ music. We all had a fab time.
My girlfriends and I will be back here for our next 'girls night out' .

I come to 515 quite often as well as some other establishments in the immediate area. 515 is by far my favorite place for a number of reasons. For starters the atmosphere is friendly and and lively. The bartenders and waitresses are obviously experienced enough to know that the customer comes first. Another plus in my book, and should have been on the top of my list, is the great selection of music that the DJ's play. I always invite my friends here because I know we'll end up having a good time. One more plus is that the menu is constantly improving. Lately I've been ordering up Mexican, because it's inexpensive and that's geared more towards my comfort zone. Last year I had my birthday party here and it was a blast. The management is accommodating and actually had the Nintendo Wii available on the flat screen TV.

DO NOT GO HERE!!! We had the worst experience at this establishment. We were watching the College Football National Championship (Go Gators) and we were kicked off of our table and asked to leave. We had ordered about $200 worth of drinks at this point and there were about 20 people in our party. When they threatened to take our table away, I ordered food to keep our spot, but they said "NO" and you guys are gone. I cannot STRESS how BAD THIS PLACE IS. If I were you I would think 10 times before I go to this place. This place is absolutely atrocious for their service. They are so understaffed, unprofessional, and outright rude that it took about 20 minutes to get our first drink. 20 MINUTES!!! If you encounter ANDREA, please give her a tip on my behalf: BE NICE TO CUSTOMERS WHO ARE SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY AT YOUR ESTABLISHMENT, SINCE THEY ARE PAYING YOUR SALARY, YOU MINIMUM WAGE DEGENERATE.

The management at this place doesn't care about your complaints. I called the next day to speak to the manager, and the guy started yelling at me. I could not believe that he was speaking in a loud tone when I maintained calm.

PLEASE HELP US PUT THIS PLACE OUT OF BUSINESS. THIS PLACE DESERVES NO PERSON'S BUSINESS. THIS IS THE WORST PLACE TO GO TO ON ANY NIGHT!!!

Definitely not a good place for anyone who appreciates communication. Gathering 20 friends is hard enough, without having to worry that the completely rude hostess will also hassle you about how many of them are sitting in a seat, and how many are standing next to the table (in a sports bar mind you) excitedly watching a big game on tv. Now imagine our surprise when "Andrea" came running up to us telling us how we had to "get out the table to make room for people who wanted to eat".... I guess it was okay to be that rude since we had already closed out one bar tab? She also didnt want to hear it when i pointed out the 5 other booths of people ONLY buying drinks from her.... (no food)...... just recounting this makes my head hurt that people can be so rude and asinine. Would it have been to much to ask the woman to come over and explain that on nights of big sporting events, they require xyz to be placed on tabs and not purchased from the bar? I guess so. Bottomline, for anyone that will be in the area- there are a dozen other bars in spitting distance... so if you dont want to worry about bumping into this moron thinks she is a hostess at Bar 515, go elsewhere. We surely did.

I went to bar 515 last night and had the worst experience! I was with about 5 friends, we had dinner and as the night wore on, more of our friends joined us. At one point there were about 20 of us there- a few at the table and the rest at the bar. One of our friends was leaving a little early and closed outour tab at the table- an hour later the hostess (she said her name was Andrea) came up to us and said we needed to leave the table bc she needed it for "people who were going to be ordering though her"-- we offered to order our drinks through her and she refused. Although we had finished our dinner, we were all drinking, and because we didnt know that we had to order from the waitress we were getting our drinks from the bar. (and because our tab at the table was already closed) - to make a long story short- she told us she would rather that all 20 of us leave and not order from the bar, and proceeded to seat 2 people at our table. When I pointed out that she should have just told us that we needed to order from the waitress if we wanted to sit there, she refused to listen. The whole situation is pretty ridiculous, she was being difficult and unreasonable, and in my opinion- discriminatory. Instead, she chose to let 20 people walk out and go to the bar next door -where we proceeded to have a great time- I wonder what the owners/managers of 515 think of that? There are plenty of great bars in the city where you don't have to deal with attitudes like "Andrea's"- why would I ever go back?

I went here recently for drinks/dinner with friends after work. I put the balance on my card and we left the tip in cash. When I was going over my statement the next day I noticed that our server had added quite a bit more onto my card then the total had come to. When I went back to the bar to point out the disprency ,the manager had the nerve to tell me it was just an accident --explaining that the servers receive tips in cash and credit and sometimes they don't add it right or put it on the right cards (um excuse me- but isn't that part of their job!!)

This place has an unbelieveable happy hour!! $4 domestic drafts, $5 mojitos, margaritas, cosmos, appletinis, wine, sangria... it goes on and on! there is a different food special everyday, when i went they had 2 for 1 wings (yum) Besides the dozens of gigantic tv's they also have beer pong and let you play a nintendo wii for free!

Yeah, it's a sports bar: Fratboys and Bimbos. OK, that out of the way, there are other friendly folks. And the service is great. Our waitress, Kinga, (great name!) was a goddess. Really accommodating as our group grew without warning... and had to switch tables. As is common these days, the bar area was crowded. The music was a bit too loud, and there were plenty of empty tables in the back. The beer list was ok, featuring a "Double Chocolate Stout" I never heard of before. (It was like drinking a Hersey Bar.) Pretty standard fare, but great service makes it a good place to hang with friends. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers

I went there on Saturday night and was disappointed to learn that Bar 515 is now a gay bar. No disrespect to gay people, but Bar 515 used to be a cool spot to try to pick up girls. Go to the Mercury Bar instead for socializing and watching games.

Been going to this place for a year now on and off. It's def one of the top bars of the neighborhood, with plenty of flat panels for catching the game, and your typical young post college crowd. Not the place to go for an exciting night out, but a safe bet for the game or to grab a quick drink.

there is a sign out front that states happy hour is everday from 5 till 9. what they don't tell you is drinks are watered down, glasses are small, and service is incredibly bad. the music is ear deafening and food average at best. there are so many better choices in this area. dont make the mistake i made.

Always have a good time there and the beer is great. Typical bar as far as service goes, but anyone who's bartended in a busy place can sympathize. Younger crowd, just be careful on the weekends as it gets tight.

great fun place to go after work, and guy to girl ratio is very much in favor of the ladies who are looking for a little actionl top 40 music, dj comes later in the evening. drinks come fast. crowd is mostly anywhere from mid 20's to 30's. sometimes during the day they give out deals to get a free drink.

Stopped by for an hour or two for someone's going away party. Happy hour pricing ($5 cosmos & $3 draft beers) was good. I had 2 cosmos, which were good, nothing special. The place can get a little crowded but it was a fun time with friends. It's a convenient, decently priced bar, good to go with co-workers and friends.

Stopped by for an hour or two for someone's going away party. Happy hour pricing ($5 cosmos & $3 draft beers) was good. I had 2 cosmos, which were good, nothing special. The place can get a little crowded but it was a fun time with friends. It's a convenient, decently priced bar, good to go with co-workers and friends.

Pros: happy hour pricing

.

Well what can i say about the place, it was unfriendly, the food was cold and horrible and the drinks order kept getting messed up. From reading other reviews i seriously thought i was unlucky that night but i guess not. I also noticed that if you don't leave the bar tender a large enough tip he won't serve you for ages. The waitress i had wasn't v. friendly either.. i give this place a big thumbs down. The best part about the night was leaving.

if you are looking for a trendy frat scene with hip hop and a dj vs a sports bar where the TVs are actually ON vs background, this is your place. Went there to watch Yanks vs Boston. I'd say about 1/4 of the place was interested in this amazing NY rivalry game. I mean, if were playing Tampa Bay and it was pre-season...fine. The food was crap too. Saw a few posts on here about the apps coming out the same time as the entrees. We made sure to comment on that to AVOID it, but lo and behold...the main food came out 45 seconds after the apps w/ no room to put it on the table. The waitress was nice about it. Not her fault. she gave free drink tix. We didnt hold back a good tip b/c of the kitchens screw up. Much better places for sports.

Pros: location, big tvs, cheap

Cons: frat crowd , sports secondary, terrible food

Girls... go to 515 on any night because there will always be boys there watching the game and ready for a hookup. I got to watch the Yankees/Red Sox game. And if you are attached, this a good compromise bar. It has the lounge in the back, which is in full view of plenty of TVs showing the games.
The music was great! They played all kinds of old school when I was there, which I love!!!! The crowd is a bit bridge and tunnel and they were getting drunker by the minute.

This is a good bar, music changes from Rap/HipHop to Rock (mostly whats popular)

its a Murray Hill bar... So the crowd is all 20-something and its a nicer decore then rest of the bars in that line (cause of the waterfall and that lounge area in the back)

avg. price drinks for the area -- how can you go wrong?

Pros: avg prices, crowded ALWAYS

I've been here a few times and have ALWAYS had a great time. The crowd is very friendly and easygoing...good place to meet people. The music is eh...a good mix of hip hop, but can use a lil more rock and 80's....that would put it over the edge.

The decor is great as well...lots of seating throughout the place...nice little places to get cozy if you wish.

GREAT selection of draught beer...Guinness, Boddingtons, Bass, Brooklyn, Stella, etc etc...just too many to remember and name.

Bar 515 is one of the greatest bars I've been to in Manhattan. The atmosphere is up-beat and fun with great music, but manages to maintain a classy lounge decor with candles and a waterfall backdrop in the back of the bar. The service is fast and efficient and the staff is extremely personable, with two of the most beautiful and friendliest female bartenders in Manhattan. The food is decent, and the prices are reasonable. Overall, the bar seems to have a little something for everyone, so I would recommend checking it out if you're in the neighborhood.

Had heard good things decor-wise about the place and finally went with a group of friends Saturday night (05/31). Expecting typical hip-hop or worse techno, I got a pleasant suprise when I heard the DJ play more Global Underground-esque music. The girl bartenders were really shaking it up! Aside from the excessive number of roving-eyed, post-frat boys, the music ensured a good time. Finally something different!
