I've been here more times than I can count and it's a great place to catch up with girlfriends over drinks. Love the ambiance at Pegu club! It's also a great drink spot for a group of friends, if you have more than 8 make a reservation for a table. Their earl grey martini and pisco punch are a must!... More

Seriously, a fabulous drink club that does it right! The atmosphere is dark and sensual. The drinks are amazing - creative, tasty and custom when you need it. Talk to the servers - they will recommend based upon preferences and requirements. We didn't want to leave and head to dinner!

Heard about Pegu from friends. I would say if you're visiting the city as a tourist, great little place to stop by and get a drink. Now we went around 5 pm for pre-dinner drinks, so I'm assuming it's different later at night. At that time there was ample seating. We are picky about our mixed cocktails and what we... More

I sometimes think I'm being a little grumpy but judging from all the recent bad reviews about this place there is a real problem. Alarm bells started to ring when the barman took so long to serve us ( there was only one other customer at the bar so really no major rush this Tuesday evening°. He just seemed to... More

Quick New York Weekendtripper: Can you recite a correct definition for the term, ‘mixologist’? Too late. According to the Douglas Harper’s etymology dictionary, the term ‘mixologist’ dates back to 1856, and was used as jocular slang for ‘mix’; ending from the sciences. The 19th century definition still rings true today, being the term used to define barkeeps known as, ‘mixologists’:... More

I visited early, around 9pm, on a Saturday night. My friend and I had no issue gaining entrance nor finding seats. It was rather dark inside, but I suspect that is part of the 'atmosphere'. We each had 1 $14 cocktail. The drink was tasty and strong enough, but still -- $14? We stayed for a bit, chatted, and left... More

I went here in May 2013 for a few cocktails. Nice atmosphere but service wasn't great. However, the most worrying thing was my credit card was cloned whilst in NYC. I only used it in 3 places - the others were in shops Lord & Taylor and Duane Reade so am pretty convinced the details were taken here as it... More

We were really looking forward to having pre-dinner cocktails at Pegu Club. We got there around 6:30 and had no trouble grabbing seats at the bar. This was on a Friday - we expected it to be slammed, but it was only an average size crowd. We ordered two rounds of drinks that were good, but nothing spectacular. There's really... More

3 years ago, when I first visited this bar, the atmosphere and cocktails transported you back to a bygone era. The staff were polite and behind the scenes ensuring that your experience was a good one, in addition to serving awesome cocktails. We were so much looking forward to revisiting the Club. On arrival we were met with furniture that... More

My boyfriend and I were invited here for a friend's birthday celebration. Like the previous reviewer, we had trouble getting in (even when giving my friend's name who had made the reservations), but the "more attractive" patrons arriving at the same time had no trouble entering, even without a reservation. Once we made it upstairs, we discovered that the table... More
