Great fun unique night out in NYC

I am writing this review regarding a visit to this bar in August 2010. Me and my mate went to a few bars in the meat packing district and found them very soulless and expensive. We found Hogs and Heifers by accident, the bouncer gave us a big cheeky smile as he opened the door to a bar full of people singing dancing and a great atmosphere. As we entered I went to take a photo of the bar as it had many crazy items attatched to it, the bartener then turned the music down and through a megaphone she proceeded to yell at me to put my f###ing camers away and get out unless l was buying a drink!!! I played her at her own game and took a photo of her; then opened the door and took one of the bouncer.All done with a smile on my face. This lead to free drinks off the barmaid and bouncer. We had a great time, yes the place has its own style, you gotta learn to leave your ego at home be prepared to take the piss out of yourself. The staff took great care of us 2 Brits!!! Defo going back this year to check it out again. Just hope the same sassy staff are there to greet us in their own unique style.

Great music and fun, playful bartenders

I've read the other reviews and so I am getting a sense of the sort of people that frequent nymag.com. I wear a motorcycle jacket with an american flag on the back. I have spurs on my cowboy boots. I tip well, tip often, and always greet the girls at the bar with a smile. I have my whiskey and beer bought for me and set down on the bar when I walk in, usually accompanied by a hug. Treat people nicely and play along, and you'll love this bar as much as I do. If you've got an ego, stick with your fufu drinks at the Martini de la Hoite Toite.

So Much Fun!

My sister and I stopped in this place after her birthday dinner. We had a blast! Loved the bartenders and loved living vicariously through them. Prepare to be insulted if you're cheap. As far as I'm concerned you deserve it! Sounds like some of the complainers here fit in to that category. Loved the one-liners. Not like anything I had ever seen before. I bought the bartender a shot just because I found her to be so entertaining. Thanks for a great time! We will definitely go back when we make it back to New York!!!!

cheap tricks by cheap chicks

Despite the lousy service some people get a kick out of staring at celebrities. The bouncers, when I was there, looked like they were close to retirement. But it has to be said they

Humiliating!!

By TwoBoys on 2/12/2013

  • No, I would not go back!

This past Saturday, Feb, 9th at about 6 p.m., we walked in to H & H on a whim!! There were six of us & lets just say the crowd more than doubled when we walked in!! Almost immediately one of my friends was verbally abused by a female bartender who appeared to be under the influence herself!! She was belligerent, insulting & relentless which created a humiliating situation that was uncalled for!! Needless to say we didn't finish our drink before we escaped the rudeness!!!

The name of the establishment says it all...

  • No, I would not go back!

I find it interesting that all the comments of this place are negative. NOT! I believe either the bartender is the owner; the owner doesn't care about making money, or possibly both. However, I can't imagine a person like that could own an establishment nor have a job so maybe she is the owner. HAHA! I truly think they pick and choose their clientele and we didn't look the trash..I mean the part. The establishment was fairly crowded when we walked in but this place is the size of my closet but anyway, we made towards the bar for a drink. Horrible service and of course, Mrs. Rudeness was being her normal rude self according to the options of everyone else here. She first worked on the crowd behind us which cleared out quickly. Then she zoned in on me. I played her game for a short while and when she became rude, I did too. Funny, she can give it but boy she can't take it. I think in a minute flat it went from 40 people to six. As someone already said, we gave our hundreds of dollars to some else down the street. Had a GREAT time in NYC and though this one vapor of the evening was not pleasant, I had the time of my life and she, Mrs. Rudeness was just enough of a memory for me to pass on the word to all my friends, family and well, even strangers to not step foot in to this bar. Oh and by the way, it's no where near a Coyote Ugly experience...LOL! What a joke! I'm still trying to figure out if she's the Hog or the Heifer!
