Happy Hour 2/16/2011

Social..Social..Social! Where to begin? This has to be one of my favorite spots on the west side. My favorite is their Roof Deck, I get my workout hiking up those stairs but it is totally worth it. The drinks just keep on comin! Their happy hour is ridiculous, there are a TON of different options for practically $5. Lets just tonics are my best friend. Last time I was there it was a month or two ago, so def not roof deck weather, our bartender Louise had us trapped-- I came in for 1 drink left one too many later! Seriously cannot wait to come back! Great GREAT times here! more

Open Bar packages 3/22/2010

I love the open bar deal they have here. You can pay at the door and then have ""all you can drink"" and we even had our own bartender on the 2nd floor. And the bartenders know how to make a great Mojito! I love this place for private events. Pros: open bar more

Burgers are the best 2/22/2010

I am extremely picky when it comes to hamburgers. Someone told me that Social's were the best. And I have to agree. They are amazing...and also come with a plentiful serving of fries. I don't drink but my boyfriend said they made a great Manhattan. The waitress we had was also very friendly and kept my soda glass filled. I will definitely be back soon to try other food. Pros: great bar food more

Great Party 2/15/2010

I was invited to a birthday party last Friday night and had a blast. They had a private room on the 3rd floor and open bar. The music and drinks were awesome. I thought it was cool that they had coat racks on our floor so I didn't have to walk all the the way downstairs if I needed to smoke. I could just grab my coat and walk outside on the patio. This was a plus! I will definitely be back here! Pros: Music, 3rd Floor Patio Cons: They ID you at door even if you look way over 21 more

A lot going on here 2/5/2010

I like Social because it's a good mix of both a pub/lounge and also plays good music that you may hear at a more upscale place. The food is really good and I love coming for Monday Night Trivia. Oh and I love how the staff always remembers me when I come in. Pros: Staff and Trivia more

Neighborhood Bar 3/11/2009

I frequent this bar often, either with friends on the weekends or with co-workers (I work 3 blocks away), and everytime I'm here, I have a really nice time. This place is lovely, and the staff is really friendly, not to mention the food --- oh, the sliders (yummy!) and the burgers (my favorite is the cajun). What I like about it is that they make you feel right at home, maybe that is why I keep coming back:). Whether I come in during lunch or happy hour, this bar is always rockin'...thanks for the good times! Pros: Friendly, Neighborhood Bar, Reasonably Priced Cons: N/A more

Great Private Party 2/6/2009

I recently had a private party again at Social, and we had a wonderful evening. For the second straight year our event was a success. Social once again went above and beyond and we greatly appreciate everything the staff did for us. I lost count of how many times the manager came upstairs to check in and make sure things were going well. Our bartender was just amazing and I would certainly ask for her again next year. Pros: staff more

Fun atmosphere! 1/26/2009

I came with some out of town friends and they couldn't stop talking about how fun this place was! We came for dinner and a few cocktails and ended up coming back the next night. Our waitress was really sweet and recommended some great food! When we moved to the bar our bartender was a lot of fun. He was making jokes and doing goofy dance moves behind the bar. We had a great time! I will definitely be back with more friends! Pros: atmosphere more

Great Crowd and staff 10/28/2008

One of the best run bars in the city, went w/ a large group of friends unplanned and couldn't have been better taken care of. We were orginally only going for a couple of drinks to pre-game before hitting a club but ended up staying the night. Can't say enough of what a good time we had!!! more

Polite & Attentive 8/18/2008

I frequent social often, and whenever I'm there, whether it be with some friends or co-workers, we are always treated with such politeness. I've noticed some new staff working there, and they're very personable and attentive. I always have a great time when I visit -- the food is tasty, the drinks are priced just right (especially since everything else seems to be costly), and the overall atmosphere is very laid-back and casual. There's none of this pretentiousness, as is the case in other places. And the music is great, too -- a mix of all sorts of stuff, which is nice. If you're looking for something different, and want to feel at home, then this is your place -- one will not be disappointed. Pros: Attentiveness, Drinks, Food, Location more

Music was awesome! 5/31/2008

Great scene to meet people. I danced my a s s off, loved the scene and would totally do it again. Super close to our hotel which made it even better. Pros: Great music, fun crowd, easy going all around Cons: Busy, Loud (?) more

Y'all ROCK! 5/19/2008

Your Bouncer/Doorman is the best! He knows everyone and makes you feel safe while you are there, but is sooo entertaining. You need to give him a raise and adversite him! Our server was wonderful, beautiful woman with dark hair, and really long eyelashes. We were a party of about 20 and she didn't miss a beat! The service and staff were wonderful! We will be back next time we are in NYC! Pros: Great location & atmosphere Cons: tiny bathroom :) more

Best Sports Bar in Tmes Square! 3/21/2008

This place rocks! Stopped in w/ some college buddies for March madness, and this place was packed! What a crowd! Everyone was screaming and cheering! The bartenders were great, too, and the food was awesome. I'll be in every day until the finals:) See ya around Social. Pros: Sports Bar Cons: N/A more

Great for After-Work to start the evening 3/13/2008

Nice Bar...Good Happy Hour 2/28/2008

Went in Monday night and they had a pretty good crowd. The upstairs was closed, but that's alright, because the main bar was enough. Couple colleagues joined me later on. They come here often, so I went off of their recommendation. I never knew, but they did Trivia Night mondays. This was the 1st time I heard or saw anything like this before, but I will admit it was interesting. The guy who was running this, was nice and had a good crowd contributing. I'll come back just for that! What I liked about this place was how laid-back it is, and the service is really good. Loved the sliders and the wings! The waitress working that night said there's an outdoor patio....definitely coming back to check that out when it warms up! Pros: Nice bar, great service, great affordable food more

Not the bar to go to everrrr 2/25/2008

I was dragged to this bar on Saturday night and I couldn't believe how horrible it was. The bouncers are on a power trip and they prefer a female crowd. My guy friends were told the bar was packed when that was far from true. The drinks are weak and the crowd was very odd. I recommend you go elsewhere Pros: Large Space and Location Cons: Bouncers, Bartenders and Crowd on Weekends more

Owner Message

  • Occupying 3 enormous & well-realized floors in the hottest section of Hell's Kitchen, this newcomer combo won't be hard to find. In the back of the 1st floor sits a sensible & roomy collection of tables where generous helpings from a full-service kitchen supports Social's exertion as a formidable all purpose haunt. A staircase that's been thoughtfully accented leads to a 2nd floor, which marks a half way point between the leisurely neighborhood dynamic of the first floor's pub & the VIP vibe of the 3rd floor's Fusion lounge. The west side of the second floor staircase houses an "Irish room" with dark wood furnishings that complete a stylish interpretation of a modern & traditionally fused Celtic lodge hybrid, complete with a smaller bar that's highly serviceable but intended for its own private corner of this roomy complex.

  • In Short
    On the first floor, exposed brick walls and dimly lit chandeliers lend a bit of class, while the four big screen televisions solidify Social's neighborhood status. After work,...
