    Weekday drink specials are hard to beat but anytime after 6 PM from Thursday to Saturday is basically a death sentence -- by frat boys or douchebags -- waiting to happen. Bouncers are pretty cool tho.

    Tired of the crowd and musk of dollar beer Tuesdays? For a more relaxed bar with an extensive drink menu go outside the Step and walk up the stairs directly to the left into Kingston Hall. No regrets.

    This place screams "frat party" but it's a great place to go for cheap drinks, beer pong, and a lively atmosphere.

    Half price beer basically all the time. Other specials as well. Good sports bar with music, beer pong and extra bars in the back when it gets overcrowded. Super awesome staff. This would be my local.

    Get there with friends around 9 pm to beat the crowd and land a spot on the beer pong tables. Always a great time.

    It's like a post college, college bar. I played beer pong here on a Sunday night and had a good time but can't see myself coming here on a Friday or Saturday night. Good drink specials though.

    13S's morphed the former Telephone Bar space into a down-to-business, 28-flatscreen sports spot; the booth-lined main room's been revamped with a wood-topped bar and a brass ceiling. Read more

    Feeling nostalgic for your college town's bar/college in general? Then this is for you. The 1/2 price drink specials are great, there are beer pong tables, flat screens with sports + frat boys!

    Tuesday night Dollar Beers is a blast. That is, if you can manage to wait through the line down the block and squeeze past all 20,000 other NYU students there to get to the bar.

    This place rocks. Tuesday nights they have awesome specials. The only bad thing was when I ordered a grilled cheese and they wouldn't let me choose my own bread...

    Different happy hour every day of the week...and I think its not just til 7 or 8. Good place to get liquored up on the cheap. Beer pong too, if that's your thing.

    I like this place, the atmosphere, staff, the food. However, the last few times I gone the publicized free WiFi has been very unreliable to non-existent. They should really check into this and fix.

    A lively experience on literally any night of the week. By lively, I mean full of wasted young people fighting each other over whether beer pong is 6-cup or 10-cup.

    Check in with 3 friends--3 free shots. They take the specials seriously. Ask the bartenders to ring the bell.
