Booze and Burgers – This bar has a great selection of beer and whiskey. That alone is usually a strong enough selling point for most. However, the burgers here are just as good as the drink selection. They also feature live music regularly so this is not only a good place to get drinks, or grab a bite, or see a band, but you can actually do all three.
Whiskey... – That's what they've got a bunch of here. The food's decent, and the bartenders are nice. It's not the biggest space, but it is nice that the booths are kinda set away from the bar. They've got bands playing in their space next door too.
great live music. – i've become a bit of a regular at Spike on saturday afternoons to see Calley Bliss sing from 3-6 pm. she's amazing -- a great entertainer + fantastic singer, and she always has a super-talented rotating backup band. plus, no cover! it's not easy to find really talented musicians for free in this city, and this is a perfect way to spend your saturday afternoon. check her out!
Good Food! – Great food, good service, all round great spot for quick and cheap food. Music is pretty decent too. Gets crowded on weekends and late night.
Excellent music vibe – Checked out the live music side bar at Spike Hill last Friday - cool. Most of the music was top-notch with a really cool friendly vibe from both the drinkers and the staff. Excellent find. Oh yeah and the burger was sick.
Good beer, good food, good music, friendly service – Spike hill is one of my favorite spots in Williamsburg. Most importantly It's cool without being pretentious. I have never ever been disappointed with the beer selection and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food (generous portions & delicious). It's perfect for after work and weekends and the booths are wonderful for small groups (feels like you have your own room inside the bar) We've also seen some great live music there. Definitely worth a try if you're in the neighborhood...
Worst bar-going experience ever – Some friends of mine played a show here while touring. There was zero security, not even a measly door guy, so a drunk guy was able to get onto stage and wail into the mike for about 30 minutes until he finally got bored and stumbled off. The sound guy had meanwhile turned off the mike so that when my friends finally reclaimed the stage, the audience couldn't hear any of the vocals. The sound guy had wandered off and so was not around to turn the mike back on. An audience member finally tracked him down to to turn the mike back on, but by this time, my friends only had time for one more song. The only bartender in the back room was wasted and disappeared for stretches at a time. At one point, she returned and began to yell at us in a good long drunken girl rant. She overcharged us a great deal (I'm assuming because she realized that yelling at customers was not a tip-getter). I'm so glad my friends drove all the way up here for this. It makes me embarrassed for Williamsburg.
a good bar – I really like this bar.It's nice looking, has a very good beer and scotch selection and the bartenders are pretty cool.The crowd is diverse and they always have a game on.Definitely a good spot to chill and have a couple.
Spike has live music – I hadn't been to Spike for awhile, stopped in before the holidays. I was surpised to see that they have expanded and now have a music venue. I saw some great bands. I've been back a few times since then. I also checked out the oyster bar at happy hour on Friday night, enjoyed it. I think the old chef has come back, I think he was serving the oysters. This has always been one of my favorite hang outs.
The good food is baack! Bestest Guinesss west of the Liffey. – The great food is baaack! I took a chance last week and was blown away at how good the burger was...and the perfect Guinness didn't do any harm.
