From The Owners of Welcome To The Johnson's

Welcome To The Johnsons is so patently and ironically weird that it seems strange to find it on the Lower East Side instead of Williamsburg,…

This is a replica of your high school buddy's basement where you played pool, sneaked beer, played Pacman and if you were lucky enough... by the end of the night, you would be playing tonsil hockey with your crush on the couch.

Cheap drinks in the LES – They absolutely have some low price drinks. All mixed well drinks are $5 and the place is totally drive. But it can get really crowded with some terribly drunk and obnoxious people.

I would come back for some cheap drinks.

She's gone... – I was in there last night and apparently Alice ("the crazy asian lady") has quit. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about - she was awesome and one of the main reasons I used to go here.

I'll take a PBR with a side of crazy.... – I am laughing at the reviews below because I have totally been there & experienced how insane that bartender is (the crazy Asian). So hello Welcome to the Johnsons- has this girl been fired yet? I'm sure there are plenty of sane people more than willing to take her job. I know businesses can respond to posts so let us know when T.C.A. has been fired! Until I hear from someone, I won't be going back.

THIS PLACE MUST BE OWNED BY COUNT DRACULA LOL – welcome to the JOHNsons, son of JOHN, i am a brother of a JON. i am compelled to review this place cause they let you sleep there on Wednesday plus dudes their racquetball court is enormous. theres this bartender there that looks somewhat like an Asian woman she was screaming at me and me and her ended up screaming at each other for hours, at the bar. once i FOUND A PINECONE in my bloody mary. it took me thirty times to get the name right of this ONE drink i wanted to order, it was garnished with a slice of yellow american, CELLOPHANE OFF. also, last time i was there i had just one bloody mary and they tried to charge me for 27.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST – And by one, I mean Alice, the crazy speed freak bartender who traded in her strait jacket and padded room for plastic covered seats at the straight bar. All I can say is WOW. One really got away. I smell a a fat payout in the making for a good lawyer and some lucky patron that has the misfortune of coming across Ms. Prozac Nation. KA-CHING!

Welcome to the "Loony Bin" – I'm still trying to pick my jaw up of the floor after last night's bizarre occurrence!!! Last night I went to this bar to celebrate my friend's birthday. Suddenly, completely unprovoked, the bartender, (YES I'M REFERRING TO THE SAME INSANE, 90 POUND, CRAZY HAND-WAVING ASIAN GIRL DESCRIBED BELOW) completely lost her mind and started screaming at my friend, calling her every 4 letter word I've ever heard...AND THEN SOME!! I'm pretty certain she in clinically insane, or at least bipolar. Clearly this was her normal behavior because her 15 minute rant which included a freakish throbbing vein in her forehead seemed to completely unphase her fellow bartender. This lunatic needs to be fired and thrown back in the institution she escaped from as she has no business working with the public!

Thanks for saving me the trouble! – I just looked this bar up because I initially thought I wanted my bachlorette pregame party here (I went here once before a few years back) but after reading about this "crazy asian bartender" I am going to go elsewhere! Thanks for saving me from almost having the worst party ever!

BAR STAFF BELONGS IN ASYLUM – I think the reviews below are way too kind...

Not only did the Asian, female bartender at Welcome to the Johnsons forget to take her medication, but I think she may potentially be Schizophrenic or bi-polar.

To start with - she LOVES to yell... AND WAVE HER ARMS MANIACALLY! When she called last call for happy hour beers - it looked and sounded like she was screaming for her life or for an audition to be scripted into the worst horror flick ever.

After she demanded tips - while her service was beyond dispicable - she proceeded to yell at patrons to clean up after themselves - HOURS BEFORE THEY PLANNED ON LEAVING!

Let's just say that on top of her being a court case waiting to happen - and a threat to those around her (and herself) she is also costing that bar money! I GUARANTEE that many ppl would have stayed and enjoyed themselves or even gone back again - had it NOT BEEN FOR HER!

It's too bad too - bc that money could have been used to fumigate the armpit stench of the bar or maybe put towards some new decor...

Either way - I WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN!

Too bad they don't serve Prozac! – I too have felt the wrath of the CRAZY Asian bartender. She wailed at my friends and I when we were there. Someone let her out of her straight jacket a little too soon!
