It's hard to review bOb Bar because my view on this place has changed over the years. This was one of the very first hip hop bars that I went to almost a decade ago. Back then, there was no AC, never a cover, no artwork on the walls. A couple friends worked the bar and another friend usually DJ'ed. I LOVED thiis place back in those days. They played the old school hip hop and R&B jams that no other spot played in the city. It didn't matter that it got super crowded and sweaty in there. It was just fun. Over the years, though, I started going here less. Yes, now there's AC and cover and my friends have moved on to work at other establishments. However, I still would occassionally drag people along and come back. When I did, I ran into a little bit more attitude from the other people. Yes, it's crowded but people need to realize that a bump here and there does not mean we want to fight. I also started to really feel the small space around the bar area where you can order a drink. It was just tougher to get in there. This place is just ok now. So, because I remember the good times we've had here, I'm still a fan of this place. I would recommend coming here before 11:30 or after 2:30pm, however, when the music is still good but there's more space to roam.

Horrendous service. At the beginning I was willing to let it go, bc the place was new, maybe still training waiters how to wait on tables, etc. But now, there is no excuse. The last time I went, we accepted the random dishes they brought us. If they insist on delivering things we didn't order, we are going to eat them. That's the least we deserve for the constant disruptions and "no, not our order" comments. Give me a fucking break! I do not care about the roof deck. Anytime I've gone here, it's been too cold to enjoy the stupid view and there are never enough heaters. I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE VIEW. Also, if you do wind up here, get beer or wine. The sangria is terrible and the $10 drinks are always weak.
