Worthless Bar, Very worthless staff – This place is simply bad. Usually a crappy (i.e. dive bar) place can make up for itself with a friendly/chill staff. Not the case here.

Friendly Environment - Hot Bartender – Most gorgeous male bartender in NYC on Tuesday and Sunday night. A great place to just chill, even if you're alone.

A Mardi Gras-styled house of booze. – The Upper East Side's slice of New Orleans lives up to its name: It's big and it's easy to get into a liquored-up state of mind thanks to a nightly happy hour. Drinkers are mainly younger professionals and former prep-school types looking to get rowdy after sitting in front of a computer all day. Don't expect New Orleans blues and funk--the music is rock and roll, and it gets louder as the night goes on. Mardi Gras masks overlook a 45-foot, question mark-shaped bar that women are welcome to dance on. (Hopped-up patrons may even toss some beads in hopes of getting flashed, New Orleans-style.) For additional entertainment, the bar sports five beer pong tables, 12 big-screen TVs, and DJs on the weekends.

Fun Bar – We had a blast at this bar. Didn't really know what to expect from this bar from reading some of the reviews, but we ended up having a great time. We went after midnight on Saturday and the place was packed. I'd say probably 60% guys and 40% girls. The DJ played a mix of rock and hip hop and people were having a good time. The drink prices seemed cheap and I thought the bartenders were friendly. We met a lot of cool people, played some beer pong, and enjoyed the music. I will definitely be back. The bar doesn't serve food though.

HOT Bartenders, Beer Pong, Good Prices – I had the BEST time at this place.... i went the last weekend in February with a group of people and we all wound up competely wasted and still came home with some money in our pockets...HOT HOT bartenders that can drink more than some of my boys were dancing on the bar, pouring out shots, chugging beers with us--theres nothing better than a hot chick serving you beers. They have beer pong there, great place to go with a group of people... the owner is cool too not a typical bar owner jerk..we'll definitely be going back there soon

worst ever – what a dump! total sausage fest of unattractive guys....lots of college frat dudes and thugs. Weird combo. unfriendly bouncers, disgusting bathrooms, ugly girls everywhere. have to admit that you do get wasted there, but its definately not worth going. Bartenders are rude, act like they are hot, and not a single one is. Cool place if you just turned 21 I guess. Corny decor, it seems like they just dont even care.

Woo hoo... – I don't remember ever being sober here. How can you with their happy hour specials and ongoing party as well as kareoke? the place looks like its definitely in the big easy the way its decorated. The staff is nice from the bouncer to the bartender. They will make you sing at one point or another unless of course you claim to be sick or something but they will eventually try to get you. Many go straight back where the beer tables are. This is just a really fun place to go with friends or in a large group.

Awful experience EVER! – I would absolutely not recommend this place to anyone I liked! You pay $40 for all you can drink, then get lousy alcohol, God forbid you're next to someone that doesn't have the "I paid $40 for junk" bracelet, then you have to pay for a pitcher of beer, junk beer to boot. Then even after you pay for a pitcher of beer in order to play beer pong, you can't play unless you actually paid $40! Does none of this make sense? Good, because these are their "house rules" all enforced by a giant, bully, foolish bouncer who contradicts himself in order to enforce that your evening is as lame as this place! Yes it is, ridiculous, absurd, and a complete gyp. Then let's describe the ambiance... oh wait, it has none! Loud, awful music, huge bright lights, crowded with young & dumb kids that know no better not being NYC natives, they must think they found the bargain of their lives. NEVER GOING BACK!

Best Upper East Side Bar! – The most fun I have had all year long! I walked into the bar at 11pm with $20, left 3 hours later, with $6 left and beyond drunk! Loved the "Sweet Home Alabama" playing while I chugged beers with the hot bartenders...will definitely be bringing the crew back for another wild night.

Great Time at the Big Easy – Went on Friday night with 6 of my girlfriends. I've been hearing about this place for years, but had never been.

My girlfriends and I range in age from 25 to 30, and I thought going here, I'd be hanging out with college kids all night. Not the case at all. Most of the people were career 9 to 5'ers like myself.

The staff was absolutely amazing. The bouncer running the Beer Pong table was very nice and helpful. The music was amazing, they played everything from Jay-z to Sweet Caroline. The owners were especially nice and accomodating. Once I told the owner Brooks, it was our first time in the bar he had me and my friends all doing shots with him and the bartenders and dancing on the bar after that. He and the entire staff definitely made our night. Thanks Brooks and the entire Big Easy Staff.
