If u think of yourself as a rock star then go to home sweet home to feel like one, this place has personality, comfort, and i always feel like I am home, the owners Kritsen and Nadia are the hotest and coolest girls you'll ever meet , don t just walk to home sweet home ,run to get you r drink on. Plenty of single men and women running around, not a bad place to spend a regular weeknight.

It's a tavern full of taxidermy animals (and no I'm not referring to the boring college hipsters, dazed and drunkenly plopped on the cushy baroque-en furniture). Wierd on Wednesdays is my favorite. Cool bartenders serve brew in plasses (not glasses) but that's only because the buzzed hipsters always leave there unfinished cups all over the place for dancers like me to trip and fall on. I enjoy the dark/coldwave underground music which many of these kids know nothing about. It's a good place to do some serious mellowing. On a good night a few goths will pop by. Otherwise....stay away.

This was by far my worst bar experience having lived in nyc my whole life! I am not one to write reviews, this is my first in fact but this place was so awful. The bouncers were extremely abusive to their customers as well as kept us waiting in the cold just to show off how macho they are. Once we entered the place was so over crowded its just a matter of time before the fire department shuts them down. They must of packed the place at 2x maximum capacity. Drinks were VERY WEAK and served in PLASTIC CUPS!! The restrooms are vulgar and have not been cleaned in months. Because of the overcrowd its impossible to walk 2 steps without getting your drink knocked over. Avoid this place at ALL COSTS!!

I was very excited to check this place out since I'm very into the whole indie music scene. What a disappointment!
Drinks were the weakest I've ever had in NYC, even after we requested the second round to be a little stronger.
The bartender overcharged us for an extra round on our tab...$60 for five drinks?!!!!
The music was good, but not fantastic. Playlist followed the indie ""formula"" without any creative or inspiring selections. The Otheroom has much better music.
Decor was good. Don't expect a romantic or posh place, definitely a hipster/wanna-be hipster scene.

Home Sweet Home feels like you are chilling in someone's attic or basement. Dark atmosphere, lots of taxidermy, vintage treasures in an old bar. No attitude at the door, lots of tequila shots, cheap drinks (which become free once you become a regular) real djs who can spin everything from The Cure to Bauhaus. Do not go here if you want to see Lindsay Lohan or if your boyfriend wants to show what a high roller he is by buying a table. There are not bottles here to buy. However, you will see seriously cool people here,: I met Rob Sheffield from Rolling Stone one night, as well as Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Oh and bring a sweater if you are cold easy, before the crowd rolls in, it can be a little chilly (its a basement bar).
