Great place to get a drink. No food is served here but it's a great place to "pregame" before you hit the clubs or wherever. The weekends (Fri and Sat) feature a dj playing tunes and the energy picks up. Other than, chill with a playlist grab u a drink and just hang. Alex is the top bartender there. tipping... More

I frequented this spot many a times as a pre-drink spot and an after spot. The vibe is always chill, people are just out to drink without fuss and let down their hair. My friend Kaina (the Hawaiian chic) was always working so I'd go there with out of town friends to support the local spot. The red velvet touch... More

I Visited Madame X for the first time on Friday June 19th, my experience was great. Be warned it gets really crowded after like 1am in the morning, but if you go early like 11pm you can have a good time and leave before it gets too crowded, especially due to the fact that it does not have a big...

The place is cozy, has got a romantic feel to it as well as creepy. It's very red throughout and has very dim lighting, so much so that my eyes hurt when i came outside -- and it was night time! This joint supports private events and there was a party there at the time i came. There are 2... More

All the tables were reserved (but mainly empty) and the bar seats all taken on the Friday night we visited. The place is red, and the music is loud. It's pretty small. I would only go back if we had a reserved table and there were a few more of us!

Madame X is basically a dive bar, but with a lot of color, mainly red. It gives the impression that you are in a cheap, pseudo Belle Epoque bordello, but that's the appeal. Happy hour is worth the price, and there is a year-round heated garden in back where you can smoke. They occasionally have special events, not least of... More

Our party took up the entire second floor. Plenty of lounge spaces with chairs and couches. 2 loo's on the floor, not in ideal locations, but they were used. Great bar! Smoking deck available at the back of the first floor lounge.

The atmosphere and music were great and it just drew my girlfriend and I in, as we walked by it on the street. We new we wanted a drink and where just trying to decide on where. Then we saw this place. Very intriguing entrance...downstairs and glowing red! We liked the music we heard sort of clubby and sort of... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
