Regular Bar – No Idea is a regular bar. Nothing special, but not bad either. You can play pool or Golden Tee pretty easily and there's usually an average crowd. Nonetheless, if it's your name night, you should go for that reason alone - it's worth it (free!!). I agree that the other comments are by employees or someone else associated with the place.
I have No Idea why people like this bar – Surely the bar is posting their own ratings, as No Idea has the rudest staff I've ever encountered. I don't need to get glared at for ordering a drink, or have the bartender look down to see if I've tipped her when she puts my drink down. Did I mention the beer was flat? Do yourself a favor and put a bottle of beer in a brown paper bag then go lie in a snow pile near the gutter--you'll have a better time than you would at this establishment.
this place rocks – one of the best bars in the area. great pool room, cheap drinks, great specials - i sound like i work there but i dont - i just love thsi place. theres usually some hot chicks but not always
Best $5.00 Buzz in NYC – The 16oz house special alone makes it worth walking through the door. The friendly staff makes you stay.
Great booze! – I had my birthday party here, 30-40 people who had no problems getting to the bar, the bartenders were great, drinks are cheap and NOT watered down! It seemed popular but NOT uber-trendy. The only thing that could make this place better is a free shuttle to and from MY PLACE!
a 'remedy' for fun! – after waiting in line at lame Remedy next door, we had a great time at No Idea. It was nice to hang out with good looking/friendly people. Luckly we were able to hog the jutebox and play hiphop all night. Fun place, cheap drinks.
9 – really great bartenders, very prompt. they allow you to bring in your own food so i brought in a pizza which they happily let me lay on top of the bar and share with my friendly friends.
check it out.
So Cool I Can't Think of a Catchy Title – Nice barternders, great juke box, huge dance space, a pool table, and enough room for everyone make this bar hospitable and never uncomfortably crowded, which is nice, because having strangers sweat on you sort of puts a damper on your evening (pun intended). Even the big, bald bouncer is nice if you get him on a good day.
