The Sleaziest Bar In NYC

By JohnKimble on 9/7/2005

  • Overall Rating: 1
  • No, I would not go back!

Whether you're just the neighborbood alcoholic, a meathead friend of the waitstaff mooching free $1 PBR's and looking to pick a fight, you're in good company. If the imcompetent/shady staff doesn't know you when you walk in, don't expect a warm smile and prompt service. Do expect low brow friends of the bouncers/bartenders intimidating customers, and heated arguements outside between the staff and repeat troublemakers. The place has a history of closing down, opening up, and then closing down again. My guess is drugs, mismanagement, and the staff's retard cronies that regular the establishment. -Take my advice, if you're really that broke that you find yourself contemplating going to probabbly the sleaziest dankpit in the city, buy a six pack at the Bodayga and go home. This could be the best desision you'll ever make.
