Re: Rude bouncer on Wednesday night

To jump off what Jrivera55 said... I arrived for Trivia Night this evening, and upon entering, I showed the bouncer my interim license and a photo ID (all documents completely legit, because my wallet was stolen a few days before) and the bouncer would not even LOOK at my ID. He said they "don't accept those". I asked to speak to the manager and he claimed he "stepped out." He also rubbed my friend's ID with his finger as if it was chalked and made a snide remark. A few minutes prior, a group of people entered and he denied some of their IDs as well, for no apparent reason. They left VERY ANGRY. He also had no scanner! If you're going to have a "strict policy" as this bouncer claimed, at least have a scanner to back up your ridiculous policies. I wouldn't say rubbing an ID with your finger is an accurate way to make sure the guests in your bar at 21+. Do yourself a favor and walk down the street to Common Ground, the food and trivia is great and the service is awesome! Who gives a crap about the free pizza is the service is terrible!

All I've wanted to do since I landed in NY for my sister's grad was to find some retro arcade. Granted, this day was not about me, she's busted her ass for like 7 years so I guess today slash this weekend is about her. Well we did family restaurant night toasts all around ect. After everyone went to bed,Ike 10 pm, the few of us who found sleeping now depressing went out forbeers. Jump to this place. The beer is cheep, they have some arcade games, and ski ball. We hang outfit hours. I seriously loved it. Makes me proud to be an American. Go here, free pizza, which is actually really good. Really fun place.

Visited my friend in NYC this weekend and this place was the perfect start to the night. Beer was cold. Pizza was great and free!

Cozy with a non-douchy atmosphere. Great to hang out.

Great atmosphere and a decent slice...

Heaving from Thursday through the weekend, but plenty of space for couples to have an intimate drink on a weeknight. I sat at the bar and also relaxed in one of the booths when I was there. Good wi-fi too (if important to you) and also a pretty good slice of pizza which you get for free with your drink...

  • 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.
