Rick Aurigemma (Corkbuzz), Chris Reda (Gansevoort Market) and Sean Maguire took over the former 310 Lounge space as a summer pet project, gutting the place and revamping it with reclaimed Pennsylvanian wood and steam radiators salvaged from a Brooklyn yard. Two oak barrels flank the entrance, leading to a 50-seat main room lined with exposed brick and capped with a glowing grid of pendant lights. Sidle up to the chevron-patterned bar for classic cocktails (like a riff on an old-fashioned), 14 draft beers (Gun Hill Stout, Other Half IPA) and an eight-bottle wine list curated by Aurigemma’s longtime cohort and master sommelier, Laura Maniec. Booze-sopping fare comes courtesy of Greenpoint’s Champion Coffee and the East Village’s Luzzo’s.

Good Potential, but complete failure in service. I've been in Manhattan 5 years now, and I'm struggling to think of anything worse.
If management completely re-organized, it could be a great spot. Until such time, I'd definitely recommend avoiding it.
Stay away from this place on the weekends. On top of being rude, the bouncers were also taking bribes all night long and this isn’t even a club. People are being made to wait an hour in line unless they slip them something, and you see them do it from the line, which makes it more frustrating to other patrons. Obviously inexcusable behavior, but typical of the area. Without responsible door staff, the entire establishment is at risk and I think the owners should reconsider who they hire as doormen. The bar crowd is also overwhelmingly white and none of my friends of color could get in without a “tip”, if that gives you an idea (my white friends have no problem)
My advice is to stick to after work drinks and enjoy the pizza there
My first time at 310 Bowery was for their Super Bowl party. The space was great, had a nice chill vibe. However, they clearly over booked or were at capacity. There were so many people you could hardly move. That being said, the waitstaff was always on and kept the drinks and food coming throughout the evening. For that many demanding football fans I thought they did a great job.
I'm sure the spot would be perfect for after work drinks. I'll definitely be back.
