A truely happy hour – I come here for happy hour on days off . . yes I go to happy hour on days off. Drinks are cheap, sliders and wings are awesome, POTATOE SKINS ARE AMAZING!
One of my Favorite NYC Bars – Love this bar. Love the fun atmosphere, the year-round xmas lights, the beer pong, cheap drinks, and neighborhood. Often gets very crowded but always have a good time.
$21 for 3 pitchers and unlimited wings? – I recently fell back in love with daytime drinking. There's really nothing better than having a few beers midday, going to bed by midnight, and having all of Sunday hangover-free to tackle whatever projects you wanted to finish over the weekend.
Last weekend, I headed over to Down the Hatch to indulge in some beers and wings. Down the Hatch, located in the West Village, has a pretty sweet deal on Saturday and Sundays - pay $21, and you'll have unlimited wings, fries and onion rings from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Need something to wash down those wings? You'll also get 3 pitchers of beer. Don't worry, you don't have to juggle several pitchers. Instead, you get tickets, and you can redeem each ticket for a beer or use four tickets and get a pitcher. You can select any of the beers on tap - I believe I was drinking Michelob Ultra for most of the afternoon (gotta cut those calories somewhere).
The bar had plenty of tables and counters to eat wings off of, and unlike a night bar scene, everyone was friendly. People were sharing tables, chatting it up, pouring you some beer, etc. Granted, I was in NYU territory and may have been about 4 years older than some of the patrons, but everyone was getting along fine - to the point where I may have screamed out "Coll-ege."
Now on to the beer - when I heard 1-6 p.m., I knew there was no reason for me to get there at 1, so we got there at 3. At first I was a little upset because back in the day, Saturday activities at DTH were all you can drink and now I was limited to 3 pitchers (this coming from the girl who only needs 3 beers). But, we didn't come close to redeeming all our drink tickets - not even the guys. As a heads up, at 5:30 the bartenders stop serving pitchers, but you can still get cups of beer. The bartenders are fine with you stocking up with beer at your table - I believe once it became 6 p.m., we may have had 2 pitchers left and stayed for another hour. Some bartenders didn't even collect tickets, which was great.
As far as the food went, it was your typical bar food and was perfect for accompanying a pint. Wings came with fries and you could order onion rings too if you wanted. Our favorite Atomic Wings provides the wings at Down the Hatch.
If you are looking to grab a few drinks during the day, check out Down the Hatch. It's a much more affordable option than sitting in any other bar in this city and ordering drinks and food.
Great Hangout Shot – Me and my friends always stop by this place when we are in the city. The crowd is very friendly, there is always a heated beer pong game going on, and the guys to girls ratio is mostly even.
WINGS WINGS WINGS BEER BEER BEER – THIS PLACE HAS THE BEST WINGS IN THE CITY BY FAR. I WOULD KNOW. I AM THE CHICKEN KING AND HAVE BEEN TO EVERY WING JOINT IN THE CITY. DRINK SPECIALS EVERY NIGHT. PRICES ARE SICK CHEAP. CAN'T MISS ON ANY NIGHT OF THE WEEK. THEY ALSO GET ANY SPORTING EVENT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR. MMMMMMMMM CHICKEN AND SPORTS MMMMMMMMMMMM
I looooove this bar! – I had my birthday party at Down the Hatch last night and I can honestly say it was one of the best nights of my life. My friends have been emailing me all morning, telling me how much fun they had. Thank you so much for an amazing birthday, Down the Hatch!
best kept secret.... – best kept secret in NYC - i shouldn't be telling you this BUT - Saturdays starting at 7pm $1 drafts & $2 shots! cheaper than getting a six pack and sitting in my apartment to get a buzz before i go out!
Great Scam, avoid at all costs..... – I would avoid this place at all costs. We went to meet some friends who had been drinking there a good portion of the night and we were just starting. They must have thought we were drunk, because after less than an hour and 2 rounds of drinks I had been tabbed for 5 rounds of drinks and the group of girls the bartender was talking to was obviously drinking for free. That is, they were not putting up any money or closing any sort of tab when leaving. If you're drunk and not paying attention this might work, but 2 rounds wasn't enough and it was very transparent. Not to mention when you try to make a point and call them out on it they will send the bouncers over and bounce you out. There really is no way to argue it. Calling the shift manager Noel, likewise, does nothing. The place was full of frauds and it drives me nuts to think of how many people have been ripped off by them. Stay out, stay away, to many other great bars.
The best place ever!!! – This place is amazing! As soon as my friends and I got in I knew it would be a cool place to hangout and get to know people. We kept to ourselves for the first hour but then quickly made friends with the bartenders, bouncers, and some of the fellow patrons there. The guy below is just a tightwad who obviously doesnt know how to socialize. 5 bucks for drinks in this city is very cheap and if you think not then maybe your just a dumb tourist who shouldnt come to NYC unless you can afford it.
Got a free DTH shirt and then a random guy gave me his as a souvenier. lol. I will be back here and I am definetly bringing my friends. BTW, The Dirty Pearls rock!!!
Great bartenders, awesome bouncers, good food and fun! – I have been going to this bar w/ friends for over 5years; it's great, we bumped into it by mistake and ever since that day, we haven't stopped going. The music is pretty good, the bartenders are very friendly and the food is great, esp. w/ the girl that serves it there, Karol, she is amazing, tip her well y'all!
The bouncers have most become our friends, we know the whole staff, it's like a big family now.
Try it and see for yourself. The drinks are deff. cheap compared to other bars.
