If you are looking for a fun place to have drinks with friends then Bar 89 is a hidden treasure in Soho. They serve a variety of drinks and interesting dishes that go with your choice of drink. Friendly service too. Contemporary ambience.

We were here when visiting NY on of the last times and it was a very good choice. Good food, great burgers, fast and nice service and the local was very cool. And it is always worth it for a visit to their bathroom! Really cool!! 100% recommended!!

Always good to go back to Bar 89! Last time I was in NYC for business I had dinner with friends. Great location and nice atmosphere. Burgers are delicious and nachos supreme are to die for!

My wife & I were visiting NY for her 50th birthday. Generally service levels were good, with the exception of this place which gave us absolutely crap service. The waitress didn't seem to like the look of us and slammed down the drinks in a huff when she eventually got around to bringing them. We walked out of there after... More

When I am looking for a great meal and honestly a great price I can always count on Bar 89. The space on 89 Mercer street is very cool (as well as the unisex bathrooms) and always has an interesting art installation. The food is always reliable and there is never a long wait. Great for dates or meeting up... More

Their drinks are top-notch, world class cocktails. It is less crowded in the evenings than many in SoHo so you can almost always find a spot to grab at the big and beautiful bar. Tends to just be locals. Nothing beats the bathrooms Love their uni-sex restrooms! The prices were reasonable for New York.

Bar 89 is a SOHO adventure. Affordable and chic. Awesome wall murals that make the transition from street art to museum quality exhibit. Unisex bathrooms prove to be a curiosity. Stalls are transparent to let you know they are available and   when closed the glass frosts up for privacy while occupied. Prices are reasonable for the area and burgers... More

My friend and I met up and had a dinner, and a few drinks. Great spot to chat. Felt trendy, and was a fun environment.

Me and my friend came here for lunch and really enjoyed our food, we each ordered burgers and waffle fries, very tasty and well cooked. The burgers are very large and reasonably priced. We made the mistake of ordering a cocktail from a list, which did not contain prices. While they were delicious, it turned out that they cost more... More
