I work around the corner from Gatsby's & have heard people raving about their "after work happy hour" so I decided to give it a try. Needless to say I ended up staying until closing. It's typical pub grub, though not that bad. The service was friendly & attentive. The music wasn't too loud, overall a fun scene. I will be back next Friday!!

So I decided to give a new bar a try and this place got pretty good reviews.. I'm a recent college grad that goes out in the city every weekend and I used to bartend so I know a good bar when I see one.. I can see how this can be a fun bar, with the good DJ and all, but they dilute their alcohol. I told the bartender that my last $9 drink had no alcohol in it and so I saw him pour almost the entire glass full of tequila and a splash of sprite and the drink still only tasted like sprite. I know most bars dilute their alcohol but this is RIDICULOUS ... DO NOT go there unless you want to spend $9 on water

I love bars that play Miley Cyrus and allow me to dance my pants off - but hate being the only person in the bar that is in my mid-twenties, and has a full-time job. Gatsby's is the place that plays great music and doesn't make a 25 year old feel like they are the oldest person in the bar. If you want to listen to Black Eyed Peas with Footloose tossed in, Gatsby's should be on your to-do list. For the party-poopers, there is also plenty of seating so people can relax in between songs.

Pros: great music, mid20s crowd

Cons: so dark you can't see who you are dancing with

Dont know about anybody else but I had a great time here last night. \r\n\r\nBouncers were friendly, music was pumping, bartenders were fast and the drinks were strong. What more can you want?? Oh yeah girls!! There were plenty, some girl was having her birthday party here and all of her friends were HOT. \r\n\r\nOur waitress was drop dead gorgeous as well. \r\n\r\nHad such a good time that im booking my birthday here!

I went there with my girl friends and had a great time. Both the service and food were great. The sports bar had a lot of cute men..very unpretentious.

Well my friend and I decided to try this place for a quick birthday meal. HMMMMM Where do I start??? Do I talk about the bug my sister found in her cosmopolitan (and the waitress at first insisted we still be charged for it). Or do I talk about the hot sauce that was mistakenly substituted in place of marinara sauce. We all ordered sandwiches and we were the only other group in the bar besides 2 other people and yet these sandwiches took almost an hour to come out. I thought I ordered lobster from the dock or something. Service was so horrible and we decided not to tip. Not only did this bitch a waitress think her service was great, she approached me to tell me that they work off of tips and that I did not tip her (UUM YEAA, cuz ya didnt deserve it)\r\nHated this place.....

My friends and I always end up stopping by this place a few times a month. Happy hour is always fun and chill and we always end up dancing the night away if we come late at night. We just love the atmosphere. The staff is really friendly. Great place in a great area... love it!!

So I went to gatsby's the other day and I had a great time. I was able to watch my cardinals in action which is always good being in the big apple and I had beer that wasn't too expensive which is always something I love. The only drawback was there was no shepherds pie but the vast amount of choices for food made up for it. Check it out sometime, everyone loves it.

What a wonderful time I had in Gatsby's last sat nite! Music was awesome, couldn't stop dancing! the DJ played one great song after another, including new tracks and old crowd-pleasers. The bartenders are hot and super friendly. I was surprised that I was served drinks so fast, considering the big crowd of thirsty drinkers of all ages! I didn't encounter not one rude person, everyone was super nice, including the security guys. Hard to believe that the bouncers could attack anyone, they seem very polite. I would strongly recommend Gatsby's- a lot of good-looking guys, friendly staff and cheap drinks- why not go? It's in SoHo!!!

We had a table reserved for my birthday party in the back, this place was so much fun, there was a DJ and he was playing a little bit of every type of music and he even took requests from us which was great! I forgot my purse in the bathroom I went up to the bar to ask if someone had found it my night was almost ruined, and they had it with all my stuff still in it, I was so happy! The place was packed and we danced the night away I will definitely be going back here again!!

I was part of the group of girls that SCARED (review below) is referring to and she is exactly 100% correct. I would NEVER EVER in my life go back to this bar. This was the most ridiculous thing that has ever happened (and I have lived in NYC for over 6 years). A HUGE bouncer (with clearly nothing better to do then harass a group of girls) came up to us and started yelling (for no reason). When one of us told him we were leaving, he said, Then leave and then pushed my friend against the wall. He pushed her so hard that she has a scratch and a few bruises on her arm. My other friend came to our friends defense and pushed the HUGE bouncer off of her. The bouncer then proceeded to pick her up and drag her out of the bar (as if she could not walk). He did this with so much power that he hurt my friends ribs! My friends were so scared of the situation that they were shaking and crying. The manager did NOTHING to help us out with this situation (just stood there like a huge moron). The bouncers that were standing outside just smirked during this whole time (even when a young man that was not part of our group walked outside and said I just saw a huge bouncer attack 2 girls!). Clearly this bar hires the WORST BOUNCERS IN HISTORY and then when the BOUNCER ATTACKS GIRLS they let it be, as if it is normal protocol. As a young woman I was terrified of this man. I WILL NEVER EVER RETURN TO THIS BAR. WORST PLACE EVER!!!!

Cons: ABUSIVE BOUNCER

This bar attracts the most vile crowd. The bar tenders don't seem to cut people off, seeing as the patrons leave the bar shouting and fighting. Perhaps the bathroom is not working, seeing as the patrons feel the need to relieve themselves on the doors of the apartment buildings in the area. The crowd that goes there is the beer-bellied 24-45 year-old who never got over their frat days. It seems that there is even a dress code for the men: a big, sweaty, blue and white striped shirt that is untucked, ill fitting boot-cut jeans, and boat shoes with no socks. There are very rarely any girls in there, perhaps this is because females might get in the way of all the sweaty bro-hugs.

Pros: NONE! (1 star was required for publish) But NO STARS

Cons: Frat boys and jocks ruining the neighborhood

Was brought to the bar by a friend who lived around the corner on a sat night. Bar was fairly crowded with a mix of locals and a young to mid 20's crowd. It was easy to get a drink and there was ample room to either sit at a table or stand. Good music and I'd say the ratio of guys to girls was 1:1. Would go again

Awesome Place! We were in New York City for the weekend and wanted to go for a few drinks to catch up on the Olympics. The food was pretty good and they have a very extensive selection of beers to choose from. Our bartender Danielle was great. Even though she was busy, it didn't keep her from attending well to our needs. The staff was extremely fast and friendly. At some point during the night the DJ started playing great music, some which included songs from the 80's and 90's. Great Mix!!! We ended up staying there all night. Gatsby's is the place to be!

In this pleasant and mostly quiet neighborhood few places refuse to comply and completely ruin the vibe. Gatsby's is one of them. The name is an insult, Fitzgerald would be rolling over in his grave. Rude bouncers, loud drunk people on the street, and regular bar fights. This place belongs in time square, not residential SOHO. Very boring inside and corporate. Go to the meatpacking district if you want this experience.

It was my 23rd birthday this Saturday and I was looking all over for a party location. Who knew finding the perfect bar in NYC would be so hard! Between the cover fees, reservation fees, and lines circling the block I thought I'd never find the right place. Then my friend told me about Gatsby's. I read the reviews on here and thought it sounded like the perfect place. I was so right!! From the moment I called I knew this was going to be a great experience. Everyone that works there is super friendly!!! My party showed up at 9pm and Beatles music was playing. What a great way to start the night. We were 40ppl and we had 3 tables (no hidden fees - plenty of room!). By the end of the night the bar was packed and all of our favorite 80s music was playing which kept us dancing way past 2am. I would HIGHLY recommend this bar for anyone looking for a great night out, especially if you're throwing a party! Plus, you definitely get what you pay for with the drinks! Plenty strong :) Not to mention the fact that even though the bar was crowded, none of my friends had any trouble getting in to the party. GO HERE!!!

I went to meet a friend who lives near Gatsbys so thats where we ended up! We had a few drinks and a few apps, It was usual Pub Grub but i'd recommend the Tenders! Our Waitress was great, it was busy and she was still on top of everything. I work in the business so it was great to see people who really looked liked they enjoyed being there even though they were working! I'd def recommend Gatsbys!

I have been frequenting Gatsbys now for a while, since we found it one day while out shopping. We always have a fun time there and I thought it was about time I gave them a review! There is always a good buzz around at the weekend and the crowd is always good. Keep up the good work!\r\n

Was at Gatsbys for my friends birthday a few weekends ago and we had an awesome nite! They reserved an area for us at no charge. They Dj played a mix of all music and he even took requests which is rare. the drinks were normal priced and our waitress was very attentive as was the bartender in our area. \r\nWe're heading back for March Madness cos they have alot of plasma tvs.

I have NEVER been compelled to write a review before. I take the good with the bad...part of living in nyc is finding that perfect spot for every occasion...WELL, Gatsby's is the perfect place if you ARE a regular. I live in the neighborhood and went on a Saturday night to have one last drink. As my friends and I were half way through our beer a big tough guy, who proceeded to tell us that bar is ""his house"" because he is there 7 days a week and wishes to stand where we were hanging out...he was obviously on something else, other than alcohol (it doesn't take being in the medical profession, which I am) to figure it out. He pushed my male friend and slapped me in the face!!!! \r\nNow, yes freak things happen at bars and yes you encounter rude people everywhere...but getting slapped in the face by a dude unfortunately wasn't the WORST part of this bar....\r\nThe doorman heard the commotion and asked my friends and I to move to the other side of the bar so that ""the regular"" can be where he wanted or to LEAVE the bar!!!! When he found out I was slapped by a guy...this is what he said...\r\n""I am just trying to do my job ok, he is here everyday, I am not going to kick him out, please just go home""\r\n\r\nUsually one for second and even third chances, I will NEVER set foot in this bar again.\r\n\r\n \r\n

Pros: across from a truly great neighborhood bar, The Spring Lounge

Cons: coked-up regulars and doorman without a conscience.

I've become a regular here now and I have to say I still love coming here. The bartenders have changed a bit but its still the same great atmosphere and welcoming faces. The weekends are also still good with a lot of people hanging out, even in the bars that are close by. I also love that they brought the shepards pie back! Thank You!!!

Was at Gatsby's this past Saturday night for my friend's 21st birthday. We were able to reserve an area for about 15 of us and it was all ready when we got there around 11. The service was on point, drinks were great, music was pretty good (we certainly danced all night long to it!) My friend had a great birthday and all of us really enjoyed ourselves. We all agreed we'd love to go back there often and soon. Definitely highly recommended!

We came across this place one Saturday night and oh my god im glad we did. Talk about a great night out. The staff were friendly the bar was full and there were hundreds of people to bust a move with :D\r\nI even bumped into David Bowie ( I know how weird can it get) in the toilet, which were clean which is always a good sign. \r\nPeople if you dont visit Gatsby's when your in New York you haven't lived. I couldn't find the empire state building for 2 days well thats because I was having far too good of a time in Gatsby's.\r\nLove this place its on my cards for next year 2.

This place is near Little Italy and I think it's a good one for being close to the area. It's pretty big and open. I think it's a good place to meet people. A good place to socialize and get a drink with friends. There is nothing wow about it though.

Pros: Spacious, good to move around in and mix in with a crowd

Thought i liked this place but they seem to have a new policy of having businesslike hostesses rush you to a seat and pressure you to order and after a short while, pressure you to leave. Our last time there, our food came cold and since it took a while to reheat, we felt even more pressure to finish and leave. Unfortunately we vowed to not go back. It had lost its neighborly appeal.

This bar should be renamed Soho Sports, every time i come in they're crowded, and depending on the time of day or day for that reason they are showing something new! I moved to this area from Texas about a year ago and generally work from home, so i head to Gatsby's for day time soccer, evening hoops and even caught the Nascar there at the weekend! So all you fellow Soho out of towners this is the venue. Superbowl was mobbed, I'm planning to have a Texas party for the march madness final, come early for a seat at the bar!! Go Longhorns!!!!

I've lived in this city my entire adult life and I just discovered Gatsby's a little over two years ago. I wish I had found it earlier! This place is awesome. They have great food (try the cobb salad or chicken club panini), friendly speedy service, an awesome DJ on the weekends and nice atmosphere on the weekdays (especially if you're a sports fan). The crowd there is a little more down to earth than your typical SoHo snotheads. I don't know why girls gone wild hasn't discovered this place yet, but Gatsby's seems to be always packed with attractive women looking to tear it up for an evening. You can hardly walk through the place with out being purposefully chatted up by some intoxicated co-ed or visiting business woman. I now go there to cap off almost every night out on the town. Absolutely the best.

Cons: Not the cheapest bar in the world, but what do you expect in SoHo.

I had a work holiday party here, and the event was great. The owner is really nice and was very easy to work with in setting everything up and making sure that the attendees were happy. She bartended for us, and the drinks were good, and everyone enjoyed her personality. There were appetizers, tons to go around and they brought the food out as was needed, which was great. I didnt have to worry about anything. People showed up early, so they started the open bar earlier for us. Once the open bar was over, we still had our back area roped off for us. Overall, it was truly a great place.

Comfort away from the normal ""sit you down, feed you, then take your money joints"", normally found sprawled along the shopping districts of lower manhattan, this place was comfortable. My wife and a couple of friends came to New York for the weekend to take in some shopping and pre-season buzz, the girls went off on their usual stampeed of the stores and us blokes found Gatsbys...We were made feel like we were locals not rushed, and they even put on the footie, lets go liverpool!! A cute irish bartender and her sidekick waitress went out of their way telling us the do's and dont's of visiting new york! All i can say is we were treated great and not the only ones there to think so, a group of firemen from florida also found a home from home as they'd been in every day for the 3days they'd spent in new york, check it out, not bad for the ladies either!!!

The ""scene"" description is pretty accurate and honestly and I can't believe why this place is on of the best-of lists... makes me question the list! Reading these reviews, I notice a common thread - there are many infuriated, unsatisfied reviewers and then multiple, nice-sounding happy-go-lucky patrons... seems like there may be some fabricated reviews - As for my own personal experience, my office had a after work party there on a tuesday not to long ago and the drinks and service were very blah. the food sounded like regular bar appetizer grub but came out HORRIFIC! In general, the place doesn't feel like NY - it feels like a random pub in mid-america, which might appeal to some, but for the location and price - there are way better options nearby!

Horrible experience. I physically thrown out for knowing someone who innocently ate something from an open buffet table (really), accosted by this shrill horrible woman (someone said she was owner) then threatened by this bouncer who explained at length that he had the legal right to break all of my bones -- and I'm a slight, mid-30, California hippie who's never picked a fight in his life. Awful people. Awful place.\n

I stopped in to Gatsby's before a concert at the Bowery Ballroom. The bar is nice with a number of plasma TV's for watching sports, but it's way overpriced. I paid $6 for a Miller Lite! I know it's NY, but that's crazy.

THis is a great bar where both locals and out of towners come. You will meet a lot of different people. THe atmosphere is very friendly and open; mainly thanks to the bar tenders. The music is great, especially on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights when there is a DJ playing. Overall I would highly recommend Gatsby's for a night out on the town.

I went to Gatsbys on a Sat. nite after a concert with a few lads. We were all ready for a good session and weren't dissapointed. The music was great, the pints were flowing and the bartender was hot. I don't know much about Fitzgerald's Gatsbys but this place was good enough 4 me.

Me and 11 other Californians accidentally stumbled upon this place and immediately liked the vibe, probably b/c of it's shiny red paint outside. It wasn't that busy b/c it was a non-weekend. Music sucked but the bartender was truly dope. We liked it so much, came back 2 nights later. I liked the selection of beers and lagers... didn't try the mixed drinks. I will definitely come back here again when i'm in NYC.

Why?\nBathrooms, small for anyone over 5'7.\nLocation? Meh, not worth the trip.

This is possibly the worst bar in the city! My friend and I planned a birthday party there a few weeks ago and it was awful! We spoke with the owner 2 weeks before to reserve the back bar and he did. We even confirmed two days before and he said everything was set up. So we get there the night of our birthday and there is another party in the room!!! He didn't even have the decency to apologize to us. He pretty much told us to just deal with it. Deal with it my a$#!! It's your job to make sure your patrons are happy and I can tell you that me and my 40 friends that came to this party will never come back again due to your insensitivity. Trust me...word of mouth spreads pretty quickly.

I was there Saturday Night, and what a mess! My friends had booked the back room for their birthday gathering and for some reason, their reservation was not held. So the manager knew how to ""take the reservation"", they just didn't know how to ""hold the reservation"", and that my friends, is the most important part! It's the essence of the reservation! (ad libbing Seinfeld for those who aren't getting it) Oh, and, can they please get a coat check?! What a nightmare it was trying to keep all of our coats ""in check.""

Recently my friend and I had our birthday party at gatsbys.The private room was great and the service was excellent.It did get a little crowded that could have been down to the fact that three members of the Sopranos were there.Overall 10 out of 10

I've been to Gatsby's several times and each has been so different from the other you would think I was at different bars. Gatsby's can be a quiet, sexy place to have drinks with a date (the spicy velvet banquettes are lovely to lounge in), a nice, low-key place to chat with friends or new friends (meet over a game of pool). Most recently it has been a pretentious, cover charging monstrosity (what on earth are they charging for anyway -the DJ plays routine music, no live act except for watching the antics of the mediocre bar population). Hope that Gatsby's will strive for former rather than the latter. Oh and although they say they have late night dining, I have yet to see an open kitchen.

with all the bars there are in New York, you'd think places as atrocious as this one would shut down from lack of business! Never in my life will I set foot in there again.

I actually have never been confronted with a bartending staff as rude as the one at Gatsby's. After paying the unresonable $5 cover, and growing annoyed with the heat, smell and predictable 80's music, I closed out my tab only to be told I ordered more drinks than I had. The bartender insisted they were mine (I had one beer, pretty easy to keep record of) and was completely offensive. Talking to some friends, they mentioned similar tab-discrepencies at Gatsby's -interesting tactic- what happened to the customer is always right?
