The Duplex is the epitome of Greenwich Village. While the piano played in the background ,we sat outside and watched the locals and travelers a like walk the streets of the Village. While sipping our drinks we were approached by a wonderful transvestite palm reader who read our palms. Our waiter was also very lively, helpful and fun.

What a fun evening. The Duplex piano bar is just a great place to spend an evening. Being on Christopher street in the Village, it is a decidedly gay venue, but even though I am a straight person I felt very comfortable there. The cocktails were well prepared, the staff was very friendly and the entertainment was excellent. This is... More

If you love lively, colorful piano bars, this is the place for you! There is a main level with the piano, and a lounge upstairs. Very intimate setting. If you want a seat, recommend coming early to get a seat. If you are ok standing and mingling with the fun bartenders and other patrons, come anytime! There is a wide... More

Talk about a small intimate room! Seats 74 packed shoulder to shoulder but makes for much fun when you don't need a big crowd to rock the joint. Wait staff apparently not as friendly as upstairs but they got the job done.

The Duplex is a bar downstairs, and becomes a magical cabaret theater upstairs! Amazing talent can be found at their shows. The wait staff is efficient, professional, and friendly! I have been both a performer AND an audience member, and its homey and comfortable. It is also right in the heart of Greenwich Village, highly accessible to mass transit.

We visited The Duplex to see a show in their cabaret theatre - it was great fun and we stuck around afterwards for a few drinks. If you're visiting Greenwich Village I highly recommend that you try and make a cabaret performance - it was one of the highlights of our NYC trip.

A fun bar! Lots of tables, and different areas to hang out. Full bar, obviously two floors, and lots of fun people. Drinks were decent, but priced for the area. The place was fairly clean with a nice atmosphere and good club music.

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.
