Low-brow but high-minded dive bar with a serious commitment to bourbon whiskey. Not a place to pick up girls or have a good time; the thing to do here is to drink whiskey.

What more could you want? – The Whiskey Ward gives you everything and more...great owners, hot bartenders, zombie djs, a pool table and of course miss bettie page! If you want a home away from home this is it. If you want a fun night out this is where you should go. You see the Whiskey Ward isn't one of those second rate, knock-off, rip-off bars you find in the city these days, it's the original and still the best.

BEST BAR IN LOWER EAST SIDE – if you want a bar where the crowd is hip, the service excellent and the drinks not overpriced, whiskey ward is the place!!!! no hip hop music here. put your money in the juke box and play music from the cure to zeppelin. shauna is my favorite bartender and the owner sandee is the best!!!! she'll be right beside you throwing them down!!!!!!

NY's 17th Ward is Whiskey Washed – Although the neighborhood has changed for the mundane, one can still go to the Whiskey Ward, order a Parker all the while conversing with the drink special's name-sake and rock to the dj's eclectic collections. This is an establishment that cares about the community and takes active measures to participate in worthy causes. Whether it is to run campaigns to save animal shelters, or to stand up to unfair laws, by patronizing this taproom one is partaking in the benafaction of all the 26 wards in NYC as well as getting great drinks at great prices by great people.

Go to this Bar now... – I come over to New york from England pretty regularly, but only just discovered Whiskey Ward last week...can't recommend it enough. Got a big glass of Jack and a beer for $6....the crowd was laid back and friendly, the staff were the same and the jukebox pumped out an endless stream of Led Zeppelin classics!!! What more could you ask for??

AbFab – The Ward is without doubt one of the coolest places in New York. I almost dont want to spread the word on this rare gem. The space is big enough to go in groups yet there is plenty of room to saunter away into a corner for a little intimacy. One thing I have noticed is the bar can go from having just a few people to very crowded and the level of service never drops off, there is always an extra hand on hand to jump in. The mix of people can get interesting, regulars, real drinkers, groups, romantic couples, pool players, the occasional biker and yet all are made to feel comfortable. The quality of drinks, the prices, the people and the service make The Whiskey Ward one of the best in the city.

Best Thursday EVER – I went to this Whiskey Ward yesterday (Thursday) and I have to say it was one of the best "drinker's days" in over a year! We all know Thursday is the best day to drink in NYC, and now I've found the best place to do it. Great cold beer, excellent selection of top-shelf whiskeys, beautiful girls and great people all around. The DJ was awesome and very open to requests. What more could you want????
