...I thought I was pretty good at musicals but I've never been surrounded by so many beautiful, Broadway singing men in my life! If you're prone to breaking into song and jazz hands, Marie's Crisis Cafe is the place for you, a place where you will not only be surrounded by pitch perfect soloists but also plentiful cheap drinks and long gazes while holding hands. As a straight woman, I'm pretty sure I've found the best bar in NYC.

Fantastic sing along piano bar. The tunes run the gamut from popular favorites to pretty obscure.

had high hopes for Marie's Crisis but my experience quickly took a nose dive after interacting with their bartender, a bitter old man whose delicate sensibilities are deeply offended at the prospect of alcohol consumption. As it sometimes happens, I was a few drinks deeper in than I'm comfortable with, so I was hanging around with friends waiting for it to wear off. That said, the bartender would have been within his rights to refuse me any more drinks, had that even come up, but his reaction was confined to snide remarks, eye rolling, and doing his best to be seen looking utterly disgusted. Even that might have been warranted if I'd been completely trashed or acting belligerent, but I was definitely sober enough to know he was going out of his way to humiliate me and make me feel like a piece of crap for drinking alcohol... In a bar. If it is that unsettling for you to see a person intoxicated, you should consider a job that doesn't involve serving alcohol. Until then, I won't be going back. I won't subject myself to that kind of abuse and I'm definitely not paying for the privilege.

Super fun place if you are in to show tunes. Went on a Monday so it wasn't too crowded. There were a couple of times we were told to keep our voices down because of the singing. We heard from those who go often that weekends can be very crowded. Definitely worth checking out. Be aware... cash only.

I was a regular every Friday/Saturday night to the point of when I got there late, I was greeted with the song MAME (Wayne instead). When we sang the quintet from West Side Story, I was Tony, Albert (the waiter) was Maria, the sharks were on the left, the Jets were on the right and Anita was a drag who was known for July Garland. people would stop and come in to take in the energy. Fabulous! !!!!

If you love Broadway shows - this is the place for you. It is one of a kind place, where you can show your love for Broadway songs and no one will judge you. On the contrary - they will join you! It has great atmosphere, great crowd and everyone (EVERYONE) is welcome! The only downside is that it can get very crowded on weekend's nights.

If you feel like a late-night musical rompus, check out Marie's Crisis! Forget the shower and belt broadway classics with the piano man and the rest of the bar. Can be very crowded on weekends! Be prepared to check your coat at the door - it is often enforced as mandatory for entry into this basement-nook.
