      The Stand Up Comedy Night - if it's funny then it's funny - if not then it NOT funny.

      Hates it

      Rude doorman and manager. They had misread the situation. When commented to the owner; instead of apologizing, he started to call me names and saying that I would be a threat to other guests, which is completely insane and upsetting. After being a regular costumer for years, this behavior was really unnaceptable. Don’t recommend to anyone.

      Duplex is a great cabaret room
      I love the duplex. It is a great cabaret room in nyc with some great talent. If you want a real nyc experience, check out who's playing at the duplex in Greenwich Village

      A Great Night Every Time
      You can't leave this bar feeling down. After a few minutes/hours you will feel upbeat, energized and great. Staff is the best in the city and very talented as well. Lots of different tunes (not only show tunes) but varied personalities belt out songs you will remember. You never know what you will hear, but it will (mostly) be good. A great place for a good time.

      Best happy hour
      The Duplex is hands-down my favorite homo hangout in the city. It's laid-back and relaxed with no attitude. Crowd is on the older side, but on a busy night it's a pretty eclectic mix which makes it a great place to come to with straight friends. Always something fun and weird going on in the cabaret, or come to happy hour in the piano bar to hear Nate Buccieri, who is amazingly talented and funny (and cute!). Drinks are on the pricey side but they're mixed well by a friendly and attentive staff.

    • Very Socialable But A Little Small
      Overall this place is an amazing bar to let your hair down (if you have any that it). Very nice people, great song choice for sing-a-longs but it is kinda small. Would've preferred a larger bar.

      always a fun time
      Bartenders will take care of you at this joint. Feels the most intimate of local bars. Cabaret here is excellent. Nice patio area as well. Upstairs has video screens and 2nd bar. This small place can get PACKED, but it will always put a smile on your face.

      The Duplex is a great place to hang out...all welcome, the piano bar/sing along is great fun. Not your typical gay bar but wonderful fun. Give it a try!

      Gotta love this place: at the bar upstairs I exchanged my first words ever with the guy I've been living with for the past six years...

      Great night out
      This FABULOUS piano bar! is a must see, we had great nights out here, but a mixed crowd, all and any welcome, staff friendly all take a turn singing (some better that others) patrons welcome to sing also but again some better, some not, its the sort of place you could bring your straight mates, really great night out.

      FABULOUS piano bar!
      Duplex is a great mix of piano bar, neighborhood hangout, and cabaret theater. The piano bar downstairs is a fun place to hear up-and-coming New York singers (and once in a while a famous one) belting out anything from rock and roll to classic showtunes, especially on a Monday night when all the Broadway folks have a night off and Darius Frowner is playing the heck out of the piano. Upstairs is a more relaxed feel, with darts and games and a cozy hang-out space, and attached is an intimate cabaret space where you can catch all different kinds of shows, from one-man/woman cabarets to readings of full cast musicals. A fantastic spot for tourists and locals alike!

      The best times...
      I have had some of the best times of my (going out) life here, Sunday nights are the best. Brian Nash, Poppi Kramer, and Kate Pazakis are so much fun, and the talent between them is amazing. Brian is entertaining and amazing, and Poppi makes the best Cosmo's!
