Avoid on Thursday Nights – The first reviewer offends me. Yes an amazing political group comes in everynight. But they don't bother nobody. Its the underground be all of the new york political world. Campaigns were started and ended their. Protests planned and the unwinding of overworked underpaid political operatives happens. Lou and Chris know all the customers by name. Mercedes and Julie look after thier regulars. Everyone here truely knows your name. And the treat will definetly be talking to old man ray. When Ian's working he's the only bartender i know that'll talk you out of a drink thats ridiculously expensive and probably not good for your liver. Thursdays are staff night so its filled with those political types. The tavern is my must be everytime i'm in NY
overrun by hacks – This was once an out-of-the way, unassuming neighborhood bar, but now a local political group comes in every night - not simply as an afterwork hangout but to do more work, and they think they run the place. If you leave your seat to have a smoke outside or go pee, forget it. Most of them are rather nerdy kids who will confront you rather rudely and ask whether you are politically correct; others will simply walk up to you and declare that they want to have a conversation with you. A number of the old regulars have been walking with their feet; others just shake their heads in disgust, and there aren't many of them left. Every night the bar gets calls from neighbors complaining about these kids. The staff is still friendly, but it seems as if these people are held hostage.
diamond in the rough – this bar serves up a fireplace for your winter needs, and a backyard for smoking. thank god.
their most excellent happy hour during the week saves your pocket, and some of the coolest bartenders exist to pour your $3 guinness pints. can't beat it. the crowd is diverse, and new yawk.
