The designers of Big Six Bar seem to have worked off a checklist of watered-down Asian décor to create a bar that's just exotic enough to have what might be called a look: big Buddha statue, check; tank of sluggish, brightly-colored fish, check; pop art silkscreen of Mao, check. Perhaps Big Six's lack of honest spirit explains why this hard-to-spot watering hole on a bustling Chinatown strip hasn't mustered much of a weekday following since opening in October 2003, although on weekends, it manages to cram in a large, loud crowd of youngish professionals. Big Six Bar does have a few things going for it: a friendly bar staff (at least on weekdays); spectacular flaming shots, which are surprisingly tasty; and the fact that there aren't any standout back-up bars nearby.


The fiery E.T. cocktail is quite a delicious production with its crème-brûlée drinkability. Just remember to stand back at least five feet.
