Very (!) rude door staff. Charged us 10$ each for an empty bar on a Friday night. We're from London and we felt totally screwed, we're used to attitude at the door but this eve was plain nasty. We used to love this place for it's cruisy vibe but it is def not what it used to be. We will not go back. Too bad.

Fist pumping and Butts Bumping – Went here with a few guys and had the time of our lives. Riebl, Arrigo, Salerno, and John Fox made it happen!! Got there around midnight and we went to the VIP where they allowed us to grease up the hot hard body dancers. Special thanks to Pedro and Fabio for letting us go to their after hours for body shots and whipped cream sticks. We will be back no doubt kaaaad. Cant wait for the Slip n side next month and hope I fit in that thong u gave me Fabio. Been using it as floss the past week!! Hope my girlfriend doesn't find out where I go on the weekends now. Bros being Bros keep it on the downlow!!!

Good for only one thing ... – I went to The Cook, (whose real name will not pass the censors) on a Saturday night. After paying $10 cover, I was surprised to find that it consisted of one small, very dark room where it was too crowded to dance. No one was trying except the go go dancers on the bar, who were not very good, and the music was just OK. The drinks were strong.

I'm a woman, so I know that I'm not qualified to review most aspects of The Cook. From watching what was going on, it seemed like a good place for guys to hook up, with a crowd of mixed age and attractiveness. It would have been hard to have a conversation, though.

Other reviewers are right -- this isn't the kind of gay bar where you should take a female friend. I got the stink-eye from some guys there.

The C**k not what is used to be. – Standing in line on a Saturday night several 20 something girls dressed like they were from Greenwich, CT, some with their boyfriends, were allowed to cut line ahead of the 30 or 40 gay men who had been waiting in line in a cold rain ahead of them.

Is this The C**k or the Hammerstein Ballroom?

Stay home and get online on manhunt instead.

Total hook up place – You know what everyone is there for when you go to a place like this. It's a a hook up spot plain and simple. If you can't hook up here you must be some sort of mutant.

Flashback to the 70's! – I visited this bar during a trip to NYC with a friend. We went there on a whim, never having heard of it before, just thinking it was a funny name. It was fantastic! The place was really crowded and noisy but that was all part of the fun. I was so thrilled to find a place that wasn't the typical carbon-copy uber-gay mega club! This place is small, rowdy, dark, and dirty. It's like a throwback to the 70's......just get into the middle of the crowd.

TIP: this is not the place to take a girl! She will not be appreciated.

Dirty Fun ! – No frills...seedy...anything goes...everyone welcome...no attitude....love it. Extra fun on wednesday nights for drag shows. Hot dancers and bartenders. A classic.

Look no further for a down and dirty gay bar--this one rules the roost. – In Short
This beloved gay pick-up joint relocated from its old Avenue A digs, but a neon rooster still marks its entrance and the raunchy vibe remains. A mostly male clientele mingles in the barely lit space, where dark glittery paint glazes the walls, graffiti covers the bathroom doors, and a big, bright cock (a male chicken, that is) adorns the wall. Benches and bar stools provide seating, but the floor is open for dancing.

A winner everytime – I worried when I heard that the bar was closing from its former Avenue A location, but when I first visited NYC and got to see the new 2nd avenue location I was pleased. The bar I came to love in college has remained true to itself. It is definitely not the gay bar for the prim or more conservative crowd, but if you like your bar like my martini's: strong and dirty, then this is the place for you. The drinks are good. PS--even if not "on the prowl" this is an excellent bar to go to alone b/c you'll meet people who will talk to you. I've done that one many occasion, meeting many nice guys--and not all I went home with either.
