We wanted to stop in and visit since it's so legendary. Music on all three floors was great. That said, for as early in the night as it was, the crowds were overly inebriated, pushy, and just too jerky to make the evening any fun. There looked to be a lot of freshly minted legal drinkers which sucked the fun out of it for those who didn't want to be smacked/run into while enjoying the music.

We hung out on the third floor for a little bit, finished our drink ,and found somewhere more our style.

Went to 3rd floor of Tootsies on Saturday night. Place was packed. Band was good but I found the crowd pushy. Not my kind of fun. We left and found other options on Broadway that I like much better. I suppose it's good to experience it once, but I won't be back.

Finally got into Tootsies! Very busy, crowded place. 3 floors of entertainment with live bands. Awesome atmosphere.

Sure it’s a landmark of this row so worth a pop in... but the bar/food service was horrible - took ages yet you could see waitress standing talking to bartender & eating. The specialty drinks come in tiny plastic cups and were less than tasty. The music on each level was different. We landed on top floor and felt the guy was so-so at best. The furnishings are tired & dirty.
