Say what you will about a bar that charges up the yin-yang for a Yuengling during its deserted happy hour, but you have to give this place credit for at least being honest about itself ("warm beer, lousy food") and its piggish customers. The giant airbrush of Howard Stern is just the beginning: Rotating from the high ceiling of the Day-Glo mega-dive are toilet paper rolls and a purple disco ball; below, there's a shopping cart with a pair of mannequin legs poking out. The dozens of small fishbowls aren't awaiting goldfish but rather watered down fruity cocktails. If this—combined with scantily-clad waitresses jumping up on the long polyurethane bar to display their gams—sounds like the sort of radio-broadcast, promo-driven sleaze you'd find in any college town, remember you're in NYC; on nights like Celebrity Fridays and Theme Saturdays, members of Jackass, Howard Stern, and The Real World have been known to put in appearances. Jordan Knight has also shown up to excite the ladies who are further courted via drink specials served in plastic cups.


If it's the month of your birthday or wedding, you can call ahead to arrange one free hour of drinks for you and 20 of your friends.
