The door man accused my pregnant cousin of being too intoxicated to enter. She lives across the street and had been looking forward to seeing the interior--a group of us walked up and were met by a ridiculous man who told her she was "visibly impaired" and that he "watched her stumble up the block" If I were a less civilized human being I would have caused a scene--I feel it is more appropriate to let others know about this guy as a cautionary tale. TO THE MGMT: He needs to go. Sincerely, Greenwich Village

I went here for a friend's birthday party on a Saturday night. The waitress was pretty attentive though I always ended up going to the bar for drinks. The decor is very old school with dark red wallpaper, molding on the walls and ceiling, and a big, dark wooden bar. The music provided nice background noise, and it wasn't too loud so you couldn't have a conversation. My only semi-complaint would be that I found the staff to be somewhat aggressive. When they passed you by they practically pushed you out of their way even though there was usually ample room. I tried one of their specialty drinks--cherry tart and it was good, nothing amazing but good. Overall I had a great time and would definitely go back.

This is the best bar in NYC - for happy hour, at least. I have been at least a dozen times between 5-9 PM on weeknights and every last thing about going here is delightful - from the delicious drinks to the perfect decor to the music to the service. I can't vouch for weekends or late night, but if you're looking for a perfect date spot or pre-dinner drink, this is it.

Great drinks, great decor and great service - what more can you ask for... We went early on a Saturday evening, just in time to get a table and to take advantage of happy hour, which probably enhanced the whole experience. Plus our waitress was attentive and the host welcoming. I always think a review sounds more realistic when there's a gripe, but on this occasion I really don't have any - it's just a great bar.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
