I was at beauty bar several times during my trip. I heard they did $10 manicures with a cocktail! The setting is dark, and the beauticians are on the left of the bar doing nails. Cocktails are tasty and reasonably priced. Later in the night they open the back room and play classic hits with a chorus of punters singing,... More

I'll keep this short but there are a lot of things I want to say about Beauty Bar. I was kicked out of the bar for grabbing drinks that my roommate had bought for us and was not allowed to explain that I didn't "steal" anything. That left me outside in the freezing NYC night without my jacket (my friend... More

These people are absolute pricks - at least the night shift. They have refused the entrance to my friend and I, because we only had a NYC ID - I am 48 yo I know I look young, but give us a break! The manager/owner whoever went out after 10 minutes of "discussion", he was as stubborn as the bouncer.... More

I visited on August 3rd, 2016. Eccentric but relaxed neighborhood bar. You can come here as you are and fit in. The pretension level is 0. I had fun (I am a straight male) getting the free manicure (ok, I tipped the technician with her favorite drink!). The male bartender was rude. I've been to NYC probably 6 times and... More

We loved the Beauty Bar and had a great time. Nice crowd. No hipsters. Great dj mixing many genres of music through the decades. Neat old beauty salon atmosphere. A good dive bar. Fun!

I went to Beauty Bar at 3pm on a Saturday. It was pretty empty, which I loved, and Happy Hour was until 9pm. Great combination! I did the manicure and drink combo for $10. I really like the vibe of this bar. It has a great retro/dive look that's no frills but full of style. The manicure was absolutely awful.... More

Very interesting bar. Gets busy on the weekends. Their is a nail station where people are actually getting their nails done! The smell of polish and acetone may be a deal breaker for some. It is potent but bearable. They have chairs in the back with hair dryers. Not sure is those are for decoration or use. They also have... More

This is a beauty salon/Bar. You have to love it. The back room is spinning dance hits from the 80's and 90's. The place has a nice flow to it with a steady stream of ladies ready to bounce to the same songs their moms listened to twenty years ago. Truly a fun atmosphere with a great bar scene.

Danced all night. Gets going at 11 - throw back dance music. Steady bar flow. This place is not too crowded, drinks flow, and dj spins great music! We had a blast. Oh yeah, it is a place for a manicure before 11pm!

this place is okay, not that great. They have stand up comedy show which is good for a $10 entry fee. Beer isn't great but its a good one hour kill time
