More Vicious than Sweet. "We don't need your business!" – You be the judge. I was having a nice time at sweet and vicious on Sat. 07/14. I hung out on their patio with friends for over 3 hours ordering drinks at regular intervals. 10 minutes before midnight they flash the lights and ask me to leave the patio immediately. I agree to leave. 30 seconds later they bring me the last drink they let me order even though they were about to close along with my credit card that they decided to charge without permission even though it was just their to hold the tab. I decided to not make the credit card thing a big deal and just roll with it. However, 30 seconds after I signed the credit card slip the bouncer decided to throw us out of the patio. We were NOT being loud and we agreed to leave as soon as we settled our tab between us (necessary because they ran our credit card without permission). We got up and asked the manager why he didn't give us more warning. He said "We don't have to give you warning. We've been in business for 11 years. You want us to lose our license because of you (Still a full 5 minutes before midnight). Go to another bar if you don't like the way we treated you." We did. Bottom line: Sweet & Vicious doesn't need your business. We won't go there again. You shouldn't either.
Outdoor Drinks in Soho – Good happy hour- okay interior atmosphere, but great if you're looking for a cheap outdoor patio in Soho.
decent place – Not too bad really, it does get absurdly packed later on though and then the service turns quite poor and so on. the lighting is good and the crowd is usually pretty attractive. i'd say it's best on a thursday night for crowd density, service, and atmosphere.
Good Time – Recently went there for a party. It's a good sized bar with an outdoor patio. It gets a good crowd without being so packed that you can't get to the bar. Bartenders can be a bit slow but overall it's definitely worth a trip.
terrible service – while the venue was nice with a great outdoor space, we had one of the worst waitresses who gave me the wrong amount of change, assumed i hadn't tipped when i had, then proceeded to lecture me with a bit about how "we don't provide service without tip." that left me incredulous. will never return.
Bring Cash – They require a $40 minimum on your credit card. The outdoor patio is sweet. But you have to enjoy it early.
Fun time – Not much inside other than benches and open space. The place got pretty crowed around 1230 but then thinned out quick. Music was interesting, must have been from a juke box cause they were playin old police one second and then everybody dance now the next.
Stay away from the liquor, they put nothing in the drinks....stick to the 5 buck pints of guinesse or bass.
Great Garden – This place is good if you want to hang out in a really nice garden with lots of ambiance (the indoor area is okay too). I went with a group of about 12 people on a saturday night, the bar quickly got crowded right after we got there. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, she let us bring in bags of chips and salsa from the bodega down the street and even brought us a bowl for our salsa! I would definitely go back for the garden and the service, and the drinks are decent and fairly priced too.
Solid early, crowded late – Was there Friday night for a birthday party in the garden. Jaime the waitress was great despite the rapid requests from a group of 25-30. Left after they closed the garden and forced us inside because it was way too crowded. Good spot to start the evening before 12 but after that expect to fight the crowd.
Bad Bar – This place is mediocre at best. Hardly any buybacks. The manager is lame. The crowd has sunk to a new low with the cattle of former sorority girls/frat boys trampling through. The garden is okay, but who cares when there's no scene to be had. This place is a perfect home for the tubby boyz and girlz of the Upper East Side. Plus they hassle you if you bring in pizza from Pomodoro's!
