"The Vig" caters to a clientele that favors intimacy, low-key elegance, and the almighty cocktail. It's an ideal spot for a late-afternoon drink at the bar, a get-together for a group of friends, or a quiet drink with your date in the back room. Happy hour every day from 5pm - 8pm :)

Great Nolita Spot – This is one of the best bars in Nolita. The music is always great, Bartenders are very knowledgeable and drinks are strong. Sometimes it can get too packed but it's good when they open up the back room. Crowd is hot-or-miss.

Great Friday Night – I had to check this place out after reading all of the HYPE on this Friday bartender and had an amazing time. Not only was she hot but she poured great drinks and was a lot of fun. I will be back next Friday!!!

Consistently Fun – I pretty much never post here, but I read some of the reviews on this spot and felt the need to respond. I've lived in the neighborhood for years and occasionally hit Vig for an aggressive night of drinking. Really that's what this place is all about. I read the reviews on the girl bartender on Fridays. If they're talking about the skinny, dark haired girl with the tattoo, that's kind of crazy. I’m a bartender and she’s actually really good. Pours very strong drinks, moves quickly (and is definitely hot). It's gotten a little fratty, but what bar in the East Village / Nolita / LES hasn't these days? The music on Friday is a good mix and keeps the crowd happy. Most of all it seems fun cause the staff has fun and drinks along with the customers. Sign of great bartenders in my opinion.

watch you money here – Pretty crowded, standard fare for frat-college type bar trying to be cool My main beef is the bartender who basically stole money from . Gave $40, told me I only paid $30 for $26 tab without pause after I saw her stare at the money. Be careful - the bartender I'm talking about has a tatoo on her lower back on the right side. $10 isn't much I know, but it's really the principle.

Great place to lose your wallet! – THE PEOPLE WHO WORK HERE ARE FRIGGIN HONEST!!! Four of us girls from Canada stumbled into this little bar with a bunch of guys on a Friday night and this place was packed with nice people and great music. Not only that, I somehow managed to lose my wallet and the Manager Billy was kind enough to return it to me! We checked out a few clubs and bars in NYC and I had the best experience at The Vig Bar - hands down! Here's a bar that's made of friendly and honest people, great music, no cover, cheap drinks and crazy fun! If you're in the SoHo area, you NEED to check this place out. NEED!

Good Chill Out Bar – My cousin had a get together at this bar / lounge. Its small but great for afterwork gatherings. DJ played some cool mellow, mooded tunes. Can get crowded after awhile and people were waiting outside to get in.

Great Time - New Years 2008 – Booked the back room for NYE 2008. Despite the negative reviews below, I found Billy (the bar manager) to be responsive. The drinks were mixed very well and he worked with me to put a TV in the back room to watch the ball drop. Very nice ambiance in the back room and my party thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Did not go smoothly entirely so I didn't give a five star rating. Food we were promised was not in the bar at all and I had to flag him down mid-party to make sure they went to a deli around the corner to rush 55 sandwiches to my party. Six hour drink deal without food on New Year's is asking for alcohol p0isoning, so they did their best to accomodate. As with booking anything, constant follow up is key, particularly with ownership that owns four of these bars in Manhattan. Will remember that the next time. Overall a positive experience and I recommend this bar for any night but a Friday or Saturday. Lines are around the block.
