best gay lounge in new york 7/29/2010

The staff is almost as tasty as the cocktails at ViG27. The specials are easy on the wallet and the guests are easy on the eyes! We stopped in for a cocktail after work and stayed to see the burlesque show later on in the evening. The entertainment is great and the space is sexy and classy. I will definitely be back...maybe on a Monday for the drag show with Sherry Vine! Pros: strong and tasty cocktails, great atmosphere, friendly staff more

My new favorite place! 6/15/2009

I met up with a friend who was there for a going away party. My husband and I got there and in without a fuss. I thought the place might be dead because there was not a lot of fuss at the door but to my surprise the mgt is full of grown ups who understand that ppl would much rather stand inside and buy drinks then wait outside and be aggravated. The DJ was amazing - he played such a nice mix without anything feeling contrived that I was quite impressed. We were comfortable and when the party left they did not make us ""move"" to make room for some other reservation. I had an amazing time so much so that I missed my next party engagement that night. like Arnold said ""IWILL BE BACK!"" Pros: Great drinks, great music, nice crowd! Cons: kitchen closes at midnight :( more

Response from Vig 27 Management 10/24/2008

In response to Argyle7, the managment at Vig 27 would like to apologize for any inconveneince you may have encountered at our establishment. We pride ourselves in running an honest business and strive to provide all of our guests with a fun and first class experience. It is our general practice to return all phone calls promptly and to resolve any erroneous charges in a swift fashion. In your particular case your card was indeed accidentally swiped more than it should have been but the erroneous charges were immediately voided as the error was discovered right away. Unfortunately as is often the case online and tele-statements do not immediatley reflect a charge that has been voided from your account, typically this takes 2-3 business days. I'm sure that by now your statement reflectst he refund to your account. Again we apologize for any panic this may have caused. I hope that at some point we did in fact speak as we would hate you to continue to go on with a bad taste in your mouth. If we have not please call the venue and ask to speak with the General Manager, Jordan. We'd love to try and find a way to make things right. Pros: Customer Service more


Visited the bar on a Thursday night and used a Mastercard to charge a round of drinks for myself and some friends. Checked my account on Friday and discovered that my card had been swiped FIVE times - two of the charges were clearly not mine, and the remaining three were duplicates of the one legitimate charge. Two telephone messages were left for management and they were not returned. My bank assured me they would take care of the matter, but in the meantime, I'm out nearly $500 in what are at best negligent charges and at worst potentially FRAUDULANT charges. more

Overcharged us by $250.00 5/23/2008

I would not recommend Vig 27. I had a birthday party there for my husband the beginning of March, while the service was fairly good, they overcharged us by $250. I am still trying to get them to reimburse us! more

not so nice staff 3/3/2008

We went to this bar to enjoy the music and drinks. While the music was good and the bartenders were great, the bouncers and the rest of the staff were very rude and intrusive. The manditory coat check is a hassle and the staff yells at you while you are in line. I will never go back to this bar because of the way I was treated. Pros: good drinks Cons: intrusive staff more

Great midtown lounge 9/17/2007

Had a great time. Music was very cool, fun mix of 80's, 90's and new stuff. Unpretentious bar staff and a well made martini. The place was busy with a nice 20-30 something crowd. I will definitely be back. Sounds like I need to try the food too. Pros: Busy, good vibe, but not overly crowded more

slow 7/9/2007

it took us AWHILE to get the waitress's attention when the place was dead. Drinks were ""ok,"" the food was better than expected. more

great service, great staff, good music, good crowd 6/27/2007

Set up a birthday there for a buddy and it was a great time. We had a large party of close to 50 people, so Brian and Stephanie helped us out and arranged for us to have the back room, which is definately the place you want to be to have some room to dance because the front can get a bit crowded for dancing. The crowd was mostly young professionals and pretty good looking. The only thing I can complain about was we didn't really get any ""buy back"" considering we spent a couple thousand $$$ as a group. Its a chill relaxed place and there were no lines or surly bouncers to deal with and no stupid guest lists either. Would def go back there again and hopefully it doesn't change too much. Also they added a 18% gratuity to the table service tabs. Def one of the better places to go to in the area. Pros: great service, good music, relaxed atmosphere, good crowd Cons: can be a crowded in the front more

Get ready for some button-downs... 5/9/2007

Went to a private party in the back room - it was ok. Nice waitstaff. The dj was a little all over the place but not bad. If you're in the back room, dancing shouldn't be an issue - plenty of space, and it has a bathroom. The front of the house was like a Brooks Brothers convention - that crowded and that boring. Pros: Private room = private bathroom Cons: Boring and crowded more

Great bar for birthdays 3/25/2007

I had my birthday at this place and reserved the back area and it turned out to be great. The bar is very cool and a good mix of music. I booked in advance and they delivered. They even confirmed everything through fax and email! Was very happy with the service and how professional they were about everything. Would definitely do another party here because it ran so smoothly. Pros: Cool, Good Staff, Good music, good drinks more

yuppie bar 11/13/2006

This place is ideal for private parties, though I wouldn't come back on a regular night out. It is the yuppiest place on earth. The laid-back vibe might make for a nice pre-party or after work spot if you live in the Murray Hill area. But definitely not worth waiting in line for on a Saturday night. Pros: great for private parties Cons: boring crowd, random DJ more

Fun Music - Good for parties 10/23/2006

I went to Vig 27 for a birthday party over the weekend. The place was nicer than I expected it to be. They played fun music that a lot of people danced to. They also have a nice back room which would be great for a private party. Although I probably wouldn't think to go there on any random night, it would definitely a place I'd consider for my next birthday. Pros: Good Music, Good for Parites more

From Start to Finish - A Great Night 10/10/2006

I don't normally write reviews - it's really not my thing, but I feel like this experience must be shared. I celebrated my 25th birthday at Vig 27 last weekend and from start to finish it was the best planning and party experience I have ever had. I called up just to make sure my friends could get in and the event planner, Jodie told me that I could reserve tables FOR FREE! I then asked if I could bring a birthday cake and she told me that the chef could make me cupcakes! She even offered to get balloons to match the cupcakes! Since this was so easy, we decided to have a small group dinner there before our party started and that turned out to work perfectly. Their food is delicious - you definitely need to try the Baked Brie Poppers! The night transitioned into a great party where we had some tables reserved for our group. The only thing is: the place gets really busy by 11:30pm, so be prepared that this place does get crowded. The manager and waitresses were so attentive the entire time, the DJ was great, the bouncers were sweet - I honestly could not ask for more for my 25th Birthday. We will definitely be back! Pros: Good Music, Attentive Staff, Fair Door Cons: Very Busy, Line after 11:30pm more
