decent beer selection, no food, friendly bar-tender, strange number of blondes – It was a strange little bar in the west village. Lots of TVs, that's not so strange. Lots of blondes... that IS strange... for New York anyway. New York doesn't do blondes, except for the over 45 set who figures blond is the best way to hide gray. But these were co-eds, clustered around each other, dancing, being talked to by the yuppish guys who you would expect to be at a sports bar. Weird crew. But we met some nice folks. A soccer team and some folks outside who said they'd show up next time.
There was no food in the place, but they had a bunch of menus to order in. No prob! The bartender was nice. There was a decent beer selection. --DrinkClubNYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers
Satisfactory neighborhood bar – Great neighborhood bar with a friendly staff. I love dropping in on weekend afternoons to catch a game with friends. It can get VERY crowded during large sporting events however so be forewarned. I enjoy sneaking back to play some pool, but the restrooms on the way back have much to be desired as far as cleanliness and size. Overall a good nearby place (who can dislike the goldfish!) which fulfills my local waterhole desires.
Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – Nostalgic college grads and local sports fanatics crowd this West Village tavern, especially when the Red Sox are playing.
Great Bartender & jukebox. Short of alcohol, what else do you need? While not a destination bar, it is a great neighborhood bar.
Decent, nothing special. – Went there on a Thursday Night with a couple of people. There are about 6 flat screens throughout the bar to watch games. A pool table is in the back room and the jukebox is pretty decent (good mix of hip-hop, rock and pop). We were there for a while and no buybacks, which isn't right. Prices are average ($4.50) for Coors Light.
Great Crowd in the West Village!! – This place is a great to catch all the games. Juke Box is the best!! Great service from the bartenders!!
great place to watch a game – The huge flatscreen in back and the many tvs around the bar make this a great, not-too-crowded spot to catch a game.
It is what it is - Perfectly – Great sports bar - tons of t.v.s, great happy hour specials, friendly bartenders, good jukebox and a variety of folks hanging out. Would that it were closer to my own neighborhood - but it's well worth the commute.
Mediocre Sports Bar – I guess in the sparce west village neighborhood, this is about as good as it gets. The wine is so mediocre that it almost begs for a lack of attention in this review. The prices can be o.k. if you like draft beer and come on a night when there are specials. All in all, this place does not pretend to be more than it is: a neighborhood hang to watch one of the dozen television sets with the crowd to observe the latest sporting event.
Keep it up – Friendly staff, great drinks, plenty of televisions to watch you favorite game and good customers.
