my bartender kept ignoring me so i asked her what was taking so long, to which, she replied: "you need to watch your mouth." i asked the bouncer to summon the manager and he refused to do so and gave me a hard time about it. never coming back.
GREAT PLACE – I go because I like the staff, the drinks are cheap ($5.00 for a Ketel One) and I was a VI regular.
Place is losing its touch – I've been going here for about 5 years and I've always had a good time.
They appear to be cleaning house with the bartenders getting rid of some of the people that have been there a while.
If they expect the people who are loyal patrons and loyal to certain bartenders to continue to frequent the bar, you can't just clean house on the staff.
I've also noticed that many of the new hires are albeit hot 23 year olds, but I don't really want to have a conversation w a 23 year old and find it really patronizing to be called "darling" or "baby" by one which evidently they are instructed to do.
Take a look around at your customer base - they are mostly dudes over 30 - who are drinkers. It would be nice if you had bartenders who have some life experience under their belt who you can talk to w/o feeling old or creepy.
If i wanted just to see hot chix, I'd go to strip club.
This is a messed up economy, you guys gotta ride it out and not change horses midstream. Changing your staff may give you a brief spike in sales, but it will not be sustainable.
To all my sisters out there keepin it country... – I really try to keep it classy in the big city, but every now and then a gal like me needs somewhere to let loose and allow her true po-dunk self to come through. That is what dive bars are for, and The Patriot is quite possibly the only true one of the genre that you'll find in NYC. The country music is in full effect fueled by juke boxes on each of The Patriot's two floors, and it's not hard to find a cute drunk boy to dance with (even if he does think dancing to Brooks & Dunn is pleasantly ironic while I consider it a necessary part of life). The drink prices are unfathomably low, we're talkin $2 cans and $6 pitchers of PBR (don't hate), with most other drinks and shots along the same level of cheapness. And obvi the cheaper drinks are, the drunker one can get! As drunk as I may have been, I 'm pretty positive I also saw their food menu boasting the same heavenly prices with many items well less than $5, and from what I hear the bar grub is pretty yummy. My one regret from my recent Patriot trip is that I didn't take the barmaid up on her invitation to dance on the bar, but as fun and friendly as she was, the current song wasn't up to my bar-dancing standards and I wasn't about to break the seal and be the lone drunk girl dancing on the bar. To all you posh nay-sayers: yes, The Patriot is a BAR in the truest sense of the word and it's not apologizing for a lil grit. But if New Yorkers can take the sticks out of their asses and come on down, I think anyone would be surprised at what a good time they'll have. And when y'all come back, I'll be the hot blonde boot-scootin on the bar.

One of new yorks best dive bar – You get the best of both worlds during the day a decent but cheap to have a cold beer and chat the day away.
The night brings the wild side out.. I've seen and heard that, if you are a true male you will enjoy the fun. The wild girls come out to play.
The bathrooms are not the best but you won't be in there that long.
And can't forget about the bartenders. They sweet talk you anf flirt the the day or night away while getting you buzzing away. A plus for this area of the city.
you get what you pay for!! – cheap drinks and white trash crowd- drunks, sleazy men, fat disgusting bar owner, half the girls working there are on d rugs or so s lutty they might as well be strippers. I am all for a great dive bar and country bar- but does that mean all etiquette and standards should go out the window? why not just move to a trailer park?
Great dive bar – What a dive bar should be. I have no idea how a genuinely fun place like the Patriot is able to survive in the heart of yuppified, soulless Tribeca but I sure am glad it does. The whole staff is accomodating - the bartenders are all very charming and engaging and even the bouncers are friendlier than most. The two-level bar usually isn't too packed as I've been going there for a good while now and have rarely had trouble getting a drink. Speaking of which, The Patriot offers some of the cheapest beer on the island of Manhattan - $2 PBR in the can as well as very reasonable $3 and $4 pints for premium domestic and imported brews on tap, respectively. The crowd is usually raucuous but fun - not pretentious or overrun by idiotic meatheads and valley girls, which is always a plus. There's also a dartboard (albeit with awful plastic darts - bring your own) and a pool table which every good dive is required to have. The downstairs jukebox leaves a bit to be desired as it's filled with nothing but country music and the men's bathrooms on both levels (especially the bottom one) are horror shows but it's a very small price to pay for the great experience this place provides.
Got loaded!!!! – Great dive bar but watch out for the psycho butterfly bartender downstairs. Wow, what a nasty person!!!!!!!
What a place! – The crowd is not too bad before late hours, the company varied, but not insane, and the female bartenders-- WOW! If you are a male with a low libido, these attentive darlings will have your bp going high! Cheap booze, cheap eats, scuzzy decor, dark, low lighting, and where you been in a bar lately where women of all types raise their blouses and bare their breasts in total abandon. Huzzah!
CHEAP DRINKS! – I go to The Patriot all the time with my BF cause it's one of his favorite hang out spots and even though I'm not a fan of Country or Rock music, I still have a good time at this place everytime I'm there. It's always fun! I will continue coming to this place for the cheap drinks and the good, friendly service. :)
