What our patrons say about their experience:

"The Metropolitan Room is got to be one of New York’s finest gems.  It has a lovely, intimate ambience, a warm, gracious staff, and a heaping portion of quality entertainment.  If you enjoy real cabaret, where the audience really listens and the performers really shine… this is THE place.  I brought a bunch of my friends to  “Bernie’s Sing Your Heart Out” talent showcase and we got to see and hear some truly amazing up and coming stars.   This place is a New York treasure. “

"The Metropolitan Room is a warm & welcoming room in all ways -- for performers and audiences alike.  It's a classy, upscale club with very reasonable prices-- considering the above average, excellent shows that they book. The staff is very accomodating. I've seen some of the performers play "uptown" & they don't project the way they do at the metro room --  there's an intimacy here that no one else duplicates in town, plus the lighting is fabulous & very flattering. And, the sound system is phenomenal! This has become my favorite room."Randie L-M, NYC

"My girlfriends and I attended your Comedy night on Saturday June 23. It is hard to please 6 women but we had a fantastic time. The food was great, not at all expected. We are from Canada and Yuk Yuks food is terrible, so the girls were leery about ordering anything but we LOVED it! The red velvet cake was to die for. The comedians were spot on. And we really enjoyed the variety and the number that we saw. It was like a "tapas" of comedy, wonderful. Service was quick and everyone was so pleasant. Our server kept the drinks flowing and I think that must be hard in a comedy atmosphere. I had called ahead to make sure everything would be perfect and spoke with Joseph, who was just great. I was worried because I was planning this event for the group. He was very informative and helpful, gave me his email! When we got to the door he welcomed me like I was an old friend. Wow! Is all I have to say. That, and thank you. We loved it! I am back in August and I think I will try your Cabaret."  - Laurie B, Toronto, Canada
