We stopped by here before going to see the Jersey Boys and we had the most delicious cocktail. Lovely little bar and the food looked great.

This little hidden gem is a fabulous place to unwind after a busy day in the city. Really laid back, cool atmosphere, great live music. Food looked and smelt delicious. Reasonably priced drinks, easy to find and great service.

If you're open to trying some different foods & flavored vodka this is a nice happy hour spot. The place looks and feels like an old time NYC bar which is exactly what it is in the theater district. People are friendly and service helpful.

Great time at a small intimate setting. Go for happy hour before a show or return after the show for live piano players. Had a great time. Service/bartender was excellent, friendly as were the patrons.

I had researched RVR and found that is was across the street from our hotel. Wow, I was pleased. The happy hour was from 4-7 p.m., offering $4 infused vodka shots (nice-sized) and cold beers. The wait staff was very friendly and while the atmosphere...More

We enjoyed this bar enough to go twice. The first time we went was a great time-killer as we waited for David Letterman’s show, which is close by. It was great to take advantage of the happy hour prices, where are between 4:00pm and 7:00pm...More
