Great Neighbourhood Bar

  • Yes, I would go back!

I think what makes this bar great is that it is a neighbourhood bar with real locals. I always visit it when I'm in NYC (I'm from the UK). I've made many friends there and still stay in touch with them. It's a simple, unpretentious bar and very friendly. I have had some great times there. I love it.

Sentimental favorite

What can I say? I met my husband here, and spent many a night talking and drinking with friends and listening to great music. Avoid it on the weekends, and get to know the regulars, it's a cool neighborhood place.

If I wanted to be stuffed into a cramped dark hole I'd take the 6 train

  • No, I would not go back!

Used to think this place was okay when it screened movies onto the wall across the street, but after I got pickpocketed here once I've hated it more with every visit. The "lounge" upstairs is a hilariously poignant delusion of swank. Brooklyn apartment parties are fancier than this lounge. And hey, guys, let's spring for some additional latrines. The lines on the weekends to take a leak require a 20-minute commitment. Save yourself the heartache; there are so many better divey places.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
