“A fun piano bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stopped in Duplex because we were looking for a fun piano bar. The piano player was great and very entertaining! The bartender also was up on stage for a song and some entertainment at one point. There was also a guest that sang a song or two. The audience gets involved and it's very cozy there. We really enjoyed relaxing and grabbing a drink here! FYI it is primarily a gay and lesbian attended bar (I think)... at least my husband and I seemed to be one of 3 straight couples there. We actually didn't notice until we were just leaving at the end of the night... We had a blast and would definitely go back!

“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

We went with friends to NYC and his brother, who lives in NYC, took us here on a Friday night. We started downstairs which was enough fun in itself! The barstaff was very friendly and served us quickly. Then, they got up and sang all sorts of showtunes and hits. We ventured upstairs to the restrooms to find down another hallway a whole cabaret! It was better entertainment than any show I've been to and paid serious money to enjoy in a long while! We had our own table in back and were entertained with musical medleys and jokes. We were even the butt of a few considering we were outnumbered by the gay couples in the audience. But all in good fun. I can't wait to go back!

“The Most Fun Place In Manhatten!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2006

Whenever we visit Manhattan we always bring our friends to the Duplex. It is the epitome of New York City's West Village scene. We visit several times a year and always have a terrific time. The entertainment is top notch, the crowds are diverse and above all everyone is really friendly and accomodating. We have seen everthing from Broadway singers (unbelievable voices) to Jimmy Fallon singing "Mustang Sally"!!

Also - Sunday afternoons in the outdoor cafe is the best for post-brunch margarita drinking, people watching and general recovery from Saturday night's madness!

If you're going to NYC you have to check this place out.
