Let Down

By Cindyo on 8/12/2010

  • No, I would not go back!

Not much going on here.Has no relation to the original International,in style or personality.Very small but loud,even with a just a few people at the bar.The standard bored looking hipster bartenders who can never seem to find the time to serve a drink.That tired old act has no place in NYC these days.

Small enough to miss, but you won't want to.

Narrow, dim, great music, and friendly people; the cleanest bar I've been inside in a long time. Locals drink great "on tap" beer and share stories of their day or days gone by. Stop in and you'll likely meet either of the owners as they take turns behind the bar with regular bartenders that are as unique as you may find.

The Lil' Dive Bar that Could

  • Yes, I would go back!

This wee outpost is awash with the glow of Xmas lights and people's noses. With its rummage-sale furniture, solid jukebox, alt-rock Buddha-nature bartender gals, and $4 martinis, what's not to love? Perfect for meeting up with old friends. Show up early to really park it and drink.

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.
