The music drew us into this bar! A grand piano in the corner, pianist singing a duet with the guy behind the bay, making drinks with one hand and a microphone in the other. Lively, happy music. Other waiters and waitresses sang aswell - all had great voices. Good service. Would definitely recommend for a lively sing-a-long and friendly atmosphere

My wife and I were just visiting NYC and decided to take a cab down to Greenwich Village, as we walked past the Duplex bar the place was rocking at 8pm on a Sunday evening, the entertainment was a very talented musician playing the piano and singing, all the staff were fabulous vocalists too, the flamboyance and flare was stunning,...

What a fantastic bar, we stumbled upon this place and I'm so glad we did. We saw a group of people sat round a piano and a pianist which we automatically gravitated to. We were made to feel extremely welcome and even joined in on a few songs. If I lived here this would be my regular haunt.

Brought my show to the Duplex Cabaret Theater along with Tym Moss and Robbyne Kaamil and had a blast. Truly the best CROWD comes in here and no one judges anybody. Special SHOUT OUT to Lisa/Thomas/Poppi/Michael and the ENTIRE Staff who make everyone feel welcome. I couldn't imagine spending PRIDE anywhere else for this special PRIDE in NYC!

Visited one Sunday night with my partner and a friend what a hoot! We had just spent the night at Lips then followed one of the queens over. The drag show was mint still laughing at the lion king number. We then sat down stairs and the young lad who was playing the piano and signing was really good such... More

We came across this bar for a quick search of places to go in the west village. It's located right next to the metro, which was great considering the torrential downpour that was happening at the time. What a great place this is! Downstairs is a bar with a piano player, who for a tip will play requests. Also very... More

Great bar staff with beautiful voices too. All round winner, and far enough away to be a locals place not touristy!! Make sure you find this... More

This bar has so much character and charisma. The bar tender, Michael, was excellent. Very friendly and just an all round nice guy. The entertainment was great. I particularly enjoyed the story hour with Julia and the piano singing. I'm afraid I don't remember the man's name because I was a little tipsy. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

So much has changed in NYC as it has become more sanitised and disneyesque. One of the main focuses of the City has been the Broadway shows. This bar downstairs has so much character with focus on Broadway music and has not changed since my last visit . The singer was so talented with great banter and able to play... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
