HORRIBLE PLACE, STAY AWAY! Aggressive and overly drunk people that the bouncers and staff continue to serve. I was there last night on 11.15.18 playing pool in a corner with friends. All of a sudden, during a pause in the game , a clearly very drunk aggressive guy walked over and grabbed the pool stick off our table and tried shooting at our balls. I told him we were in the middle of a game and asked him to stop. He LOST his mind and started screaming at me that he will "kill" me. I walked away and said "we are not going to fight". This is all on the security tapes at the bar. After I walked away, he screamed at me for 5 straight minutes. He called me a retarded f-ggot REPEATEDLY. After a few minutes, a guy i had just met playing pool went to get the bouncer. The bouncers came over, asked the guys to leave. We thought everything was fine and thanked the bouncers. All of a sudden, the skinny bouncer with facial hair who was at the door all night told me I needed to leave. I was in complete shock and asked why?? I pleaded with him to ask anyone who was witnessing all this, but he didn't care. He was just a dumb robot and kept saying "I need you to leave now". So I said ok and asked the server who was serving the pool table area for my check. SHE EVEN PLEADED WITH THE BOUNCER to listen to her about what happened. The bouncer didn't care. He then stepped into my face and said "i'm not going to tell you again to leave" and forced me up to the front of the bar.

Warm Welcome and Cold (cheap) Beer

To other poster-It's $25 and that was the last thing I would complain about. Go to the ATM. I walked in here waiting for my girlfriend to get out of a performance down the street. while I waitied I noticed the huge beers and was sure they were going to cost too much. I asked and it was happy hour(till 8) and for $4.50 I got a 28oz glass of Bud Light!- for $1 more you can get anything on tap good selections. $4.50 is incredible in NY and $5.50 is still a bargain. I ended up bringing a whole group back from Puck Fair down the st.(you want to complain about prices- go there) and we drank all night and the staff and even the bouncer were super cool to us. Highly recommended for cheap beer and good times. If you are hungry ask for the menu book which they keep and encourage you to use and order from. Screw the kitchen get whatever you want.

Ridiculous 30 dollar minimum on credit cards!

Just another example of Manhattan jerks running some shitty charmless bar and trying to gouge their witless customers. Seriously, 30 dollars minimum for a credit card transaction is absurd. It doesn't cost merchants very much to get the little machine from VISA and Mastercard, and it's a definite violation of their merchant agreement to force customers to spend 30 bucks. If it were some little bodega selling packs of Trident I could understand a 10 dollar min, but this is a huge bar and the beers are already 6 or 7 bucks each. Jerks.
