We visited New York city from Toronto recently, and were looking to avoid the tourist traps and find a fun, low key bar for people in the twenty-something crowd. Prohibition was fantastic - great live music, good drinks, great atmosphere. Would be a great place to go with a group of friends for a fun night out, or with a date (there are some nice candle-lit tables in the back).

Prohibition has been around for quite a while. Only place on the Upper West Side that I know of that has live music. P&G did before it went under, and I hear the new spot in its place, 78 Under, will too. Prohibition's food is so-so. They also have a lounge area in the back with a pool table. Good spot to see music occasionally. Recommend.

Great bands, fun times at this UWS bar. I like happy hour and the cool bands that visit. The food is pretty decent too.

Lived in the Upper West Side for the entire summer last year and was never out of this place. The always wonderful live music helped create a vibrant atmosphere, accompanied by a tasty portion of steak nachos or mini burgers and a frozen cosmo. Absolutely fantastic! Would recommend and definitely return for a few nights of happyhour cosmos when I visit New York again! FAB! :D

If you are looking for a great time, Prohibition is a wonderful place to go. We were lucky enough to see Almost Famous playing. Drinks were strong, waitstaff was very efficient and friendly despite the place being PACKED!! Great night out
