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

If you enjoy being insulted by extremely RUDE bartenders then this is the place for you. I get the whole "bad attitude" gimmick of this place but the attractiveness of the bar staff dies immediately as soon as their vile and degrading comments come blarring out of a megaphone, is if being verbally abused is not sufficient enough at a normal speaking volume. The worst part is that you will more than likely be conned into buying these rude bar wenches a shot and then be scolded for not tipping enough. Frankly this place STINKS, skip this dump and go a bar where your business is actually welcomed.
Go with the theme!

Just plain stupid

This bar sucks. It housed a few creepy guys there to look at the half naked bartenders and bras that act as decor. The bartenders cozy up to you in total used car salesman fashion and then trick you into thinking you're getting a free shot and make you pay for not only yours, but theirs as well. The music is so loud that there's no way to talk to anyone without screaming directly into their eardrum and once in awhile a bartender will turn it down to sing out of key into a bullhorn. Worst ever.

Don't go here...trust me. It's a complete sausage festival. The only hot girls in there are the bartenders. They treat you like shit until one of them comes over, pours you (and your friends) a shot then pours one for herself. We didn't even ask for it. We all did a shot and then she sticks you with the bill ($44.00). What a joke...don't fall for it. Just tell the skank "No".
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!!!!
Ripped-off! Stay away!

I left $22 on the bar, took my eye off it for a few minutes, big mistake! When the bartenders did their dance on the bar, they took my money and threw it on the back-bar, mixing it up with someone else's. When I explained, nobody would listen or believe me - they didn't even offer to buy me a drink as an apology (and this was after I bought the bartender a shot!)

So I give the bartender a twenty dollar bill and ask for a bud light and $2 in quarters for the pool table. She takes my $20 and gives me eight quarters and hands out two beers to two ladies at the bar. I ask for my drink and my change and she tells me I just bought a round for everyone at the bar. I start arguing with her and the bouncer comes up to me and tells me to get moving. If this is the experience you're looking for in the city....this is the place for you!!!
