They have an outdoor space which is perfect to see the stars at night and upstairs tea room which is an understatement - they apparently have jazz nights which I very much look forward to joining in the next few weeks.
Reviewed by Teri G on 02/28/2019Rating: Definitely make a reservation..Cool lounge : bar scene. Low seating in comfy chairs. Tons of great drink choices and also good traditional martini. Sliders were good. Learn from us and be sure to turn menu over - that’s where the happy hour drinks are (5p-8p) - we didn’t 😐 Clean non-smelly unisex restroom situation. Will return.

Charming, intimate boîtes like Cibar aren’t even in the imagination of people who live outside of major metropolitan areas. Cibar is the ultimate romantic date spot, but even old codgers like myself, who can only fantasize about a tête-à-tête, can appreciate Cibar.
Dark and exotic, Cibar is very welcoming, with accommodating bartenders and good cocktails. With very little signage, Cibar beckons you with mystery. You approach, wondering what it is, until you realize this is the downstairs bar in the Irving Place Hotel. I bet many upstairs couplings have their origin in Cibar. This is a wonderful drinking spot, adding to the allure of New York City.
Reviewed by Elisabeth Hediger on 04/24/2019Rating: Amazing experience! The back inside/outside sitting areas are colorful and nicely decorated. The flatbread and drinks were delicious and surprisingly cheap for NYC. Place was a bit smaller and can get busy in the summer so definitely make reservations.

This place is pretty awesome. Really hole-in-the-wall lounge experience. I always walked past it without realizing where it was! But once you walk down the...

Tidy, eclectic decor meets high end cocktails. The 'Coked Up Hedge Fund Guy' is my favorite. Drag bingo on Tuesdays during happy hour. Enjoy a great cocktail and the scene any night if the week.
