this is a good place to chill when you are living in the neighborhood... the week end concerts are cool enought to go there, or even to play pool in the back .

169 Bar provides me with a great place to drink. Not only that, i made some new friends there. Cool ambience and nice music. If you are a tourist and you like a place to feel at home, you gotta go to this place but make sure you blend in nicely. People there are nice. Drinks are reasonably priced. Very cool pool table.

I got horribly assaulted there by a drunk woman who lives above the bar. The owner saw everything and did nothing. Securities kicked her out in 30(!) minutes, but after I left she assaulted me again on the street and pulled a lot of my hair out. For nothing. My head was bruised for a week after this incident. Sometimes this place has good deals, but there is absolutely no respect for costumers. I know bad things happen, and I just needed at least an apology that I never got.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
