Why so crowded? – I'm reminded of Yogi Berra's Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded. Crowded it was, at least when we got there. Mostly college or just post college age. As friendly as starving rodents. Unlike most of New York, where drinkers stand and eaters sit, at this bar EVERYBODY wants a seat. I hung over a table waiting for the girlfriend to come back from the bathroom so we could snag the table when they went back home to do the deed. When the girlfriend returned... pow! Some little girl ducked under me and shouldered me out of the way. She and her boyfriend then ignored everyone else to talk about their failing romance.
There are a lot of stuffed animal heads on the wall, and a decent chalked list of single malts... and that's it. You fight your way to the bar, the bartender will pour your drink (beers $6 plus tip), and then you're on your own. I don't get the draw. The music is at a volume that'll let you talk... but try finding someone who wants to talk! So we talked with each other, and left.
-- Drink Club NYC is a roving group of New York drinkers
