So not typical Murray Hill

Remove your backwards baseball cap before you enter. This is a refreshing break from the typical Murray Hill frat boy bar. I thought I was in the Bowery for a few seconds. Friendly bartenders, laid back vibe and good music make this place a mandatory stop-off if you live in the area.

I thought it was cute!

It's right near the East River--you can't miss it as it has pine trees outside by the front door and a Christmas/Catskill summer camp atmosphere inside. It is WAY casual to say the least with lots of kitschy clutter of Christmas decorations and canoe paddles etc. in three separate rooms. One room in the back has a beaded curtain mysterious entrance and had lots of laughing young-uns in it and one has a bed in it!--with more serious type folks having serious discussions. (I never saw the supposed outdoot patio when I was there.) The barmaid was funny, made great bloody marys and the bar had 6 (??) TV's over it tuned to different stations--whatever you liked! The funniest thing: one TV is tipped on an angle so you can still watch it when you can no longer hold your head up off the bar! That suits my sense of humor!

Dis-Lodge me

Mmmmm, lukewarm beer - my favorite. Decor: scary. I mean what the hell, the mix of camping chic, raw wood, high-tech tv's and loungy cushions just didn't work. Add a bartender who blatently ignored us, that and the fact that when he did pay attention to the patrons it was because he was enamored of a blonde 20 year old with big boobs. The outdoor patio situation was nice by NYC standards, plants and concrete. The crowd was just indifferent, God forbid you had to "get by". You know how that is...
