We went on a Wednesday night and there was absolutely no one in the place. Not even a single member of the staff! We walked right in and down to the club and we couldn't find a single person. Not even a bartender. It was eerie. Weird place.

My daughter attended Garfinkle's over college weekend! She said it was so much fun and really organized and an overall blast. Unfortunately, she forgot her IPhone in the restroom and ended up at the hotel, leaving the next morning early. Garfinkel's didn't open until seven that night. She was destroyed at the thought of leaving the country without her IPhone... More

My wife and I were definitely a bit too old for the crowd there, which was mainly 25 and younger. Overall its a solid nightlife choice for the young or young at heart. The bouncer was friendly, he waived our cover ($7 on a Thursday night), probably because he thought we would turn and leave when we saw the scene.... More

Our waitress (Sarah G) was terrific. Chatted about the area and even sat down with us for a minute to learn a bit about us. Insanely rare in a night club. Drinks were good, music was good and the crowd was cool and diverse.

Recently a group of friends went to Garfinkel's for a live reggae show KATCHAFIRE and we all had a great time. The bartenders were unpretentious and kept the booze flowing with quick service. I'll be back again to party!!!

Had an awesome time with an international band in a pub! Getting as close to the artists you could shake their hands. Grab a few friends, have a drink and enjoy! Can't wait for the next gig. Rik O

A group of friends and I went to see Katchafire live at Garfs! We had a great time dancing, singing, and creating memories. Garfs is a great venue for live music as it is big enough to have some drinks and conversations with friends while small enough to get caught up in the good vibes and music of the artists.... More
