The most fun on a Friday

Just went to this place on a Friday night and it was an absolute blast. The drinks are reasonable (what's reasonable in this city anymore), but above all the dance party was incredible. You can totally be yourself, dance like a fool, and the weirder you are the more you're embraced. No creepy guys trying to grind up on girls, just pure fun with crazy music. You won't hear a Britney song in this place and that's just fine with me.

good time

great bartenders, good drinks, fun music and kitschy ambience - most fun i have had in awhile on a night out. the dancefloor was packed, no one was pretentious or snooty and the taxidermy is not too in-your-face. it's not going to become a regular hangout of mine, but i had a great time while there. good for a fun, laid back night.

Fun place any night of the week

I've been going to HSH fairly regularly for about six months now and have yet to be disappointed- generally fun, unpretentious crowd and a fun place to let loose and dance. It does get crowded at moments, but never so badly that it is impossible to move. One of my favorite spots in lower Manhattan!

nice low key place to enjoy a drink on grandma's old couches

Disagree with the critic above. I loved it! I was on my way to another bar on Chrystie to try to find a place to hold my birthday party and I stumbled upon this bar. No sign, just 3 chandeliers hanging above stairs that lead you down to the entrance. I was immediately drawn to this "Secret Bar-sh" feature. I went on a Saturday night at around 12:30 and it wasn't crowded at all (but not to a point where you feel like the place is completely dead) which made me happy, I don't know about everyone else but I definately don't like squeezing in and out of people just to move one inch. The space is large, filled with old vintage couches (comfy too). The DJ played an awesome mix of Rock, supposedly they play more electronic/dance music on Fridays.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • 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.
