The sitting area in the back is great...especially over the spring and summer months. Love the variety in drinks and the constantly changing menus, however it would be nice to keep some dishes the same, like the Mac & Cheese or the sliders.

Fantastic service and probably the most inventive and most freshly-prepared martinis I've ever had! Food menu is limited, but very good. Dining area is very eclectic ands offers a variety of comfortable seating areas.

I visited the Karma Lounge with some of my coworkers from the local hospital. After a long day at work, we were looking for a place to relax and wind down. We found it here.... Though not as large as I assumed, it had a great ambiance that I really wasn't expecting. Looking over the Tapas style menu everything offered... More

In one word....Wow! Our son was graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, so we were in the Poughkeepsie area. We met he and his friends at this bar, and it was WONDERFUL! Sally was the bartender and did an AWESOME job making wonderful drinks. Located on Main Street in the older part of town, this bar has great atmosphere!... More

Went to Karma on August 13, a Saturday night, with friends. Staff was friendly and attentive. However, the kitchen was really off. Both lamb and angus beef sliders were seriously undercooked. Another friend on a previous night was served "raw" chicken. Please bring kitchen up to par with your prior restaurant, Twist.

This new restaurant in Poughkeepsie is a delicious addition to the scene! We visited with a big party - there were 7 of us on a week night and the service was attentive. The drinks are creative and fun. And the food is great, too. Two of us tried specialty drinks and were happy. But another member of our party... More

No detail goes unlooked at Karma. Fresh, incredibly unique, and unbelievably delicious food and drinks are will keep you coming back to try more. The atmosphere brings a touch of Manhattan to Poughkeepsie. A must try tapas lounge.
