I have nothing but GREAT Things to say about my experience at The Parlour!! My girlfriends and I went to grab a couple drinks and karaoke a few Friday nights ago and we had an absolute blast!! We started dinking mixed drinks, which were reasonably priced for NYC standards, and after about 3 drinks, we startred karaoking---well, my goodness---we literally spent the rest of our night at The Parlour and never even made it to the other places we had planned to go!! I mean, why leave when we were having such a great time!! We even ended up getting the munchiies after all the drinking and singing and ordered some great bar food--exactly what we needed!! The food was delicious--right in line with the rest of the evening. We already have plans to go back in a few weeks!! Oh yea---did I mention that many of the waiters had the most amazing Irish accents--and were cute, too!! What more can a bunch of girls ask for.....!!!
My husband and i have lived on the Upper West Side for about a year and just now discovered its best kept secret--The Parlour!! It is located off of Brooadway on 86th Street (the SW side) and boy are we glad we stopped in to grab a bite to eat!! First of all, I am a HUGE U2 fan, and all the waiters/waitresses were Irish and I got to tell them my story of meeting Bono, which always makes a delightful experience for me! Aside from that, though, the service was incredible--the entire staff was super friendly and accommodating. The food was also delicious. I had a chopped sirloin burger w fries and my husband had the shepherds pie--both delicious!! For dessert, we split an apple pie a la mode (but I ate most of it--lol) because my husband was enjoying his Samuel Adams!!! Definitely come by the Parlour and enjoy this totally Irish bar!!

It's a ""warm"" place (I mean the beer is warm), the fries are cold,
but the english waiter is a case...someone needs to calm this
guy down...he gets upset every time you ask something and role his eyes
You wouldn't see me there in the next 15-60 years....
all of a sudden Duane Reade looks like heaven Haaaa?

The burgers at the Parlour are excellent. However, this is overshadowed by two things. First, the service is extremely spotty. Second, their pint beer prices are obscene. $5.75 for a Harp? Maybe. $5.75 for a Coors Light? Ridiculous. Their excuse? ""All our draft beers are the same price."" That's a sad excuse.

The Parlour pours one of the best Guinness' in the city. If that weren't enough, they are served by the beautiful and vivacious Alanna. You must meet her. Sure it gets crowded on weekends and during Happy Hour, but what place worth going to doesn't? If the crowds bother you, go on a weeknight. The Parlour puts a lot of those other so-called ""Irish Pubs"" to shame.
