    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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!

    A new sports lounge in the old Telephone Bar spot. This is straight-up wood-and-screens America. Watch something your gym teacher used to actually make you play.

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

    Beware of nasty bouncers here! One of them pushed my girlfriend off "their property" for speaking her mind b4 we even got in! This is NYC- do urself a favor & go somewhere else! Drinks are overpriced

    great drink specials like $3 for anything on mondays, $1 beer tuesdays, $3 bottled beer wednesdays. Goes great with tater tots or pulled pork

    Great bartenders, dive bar, spot for Beirut (or pong as most people call it). Crowded on football Sunday's. Outdoor seating too.

    Great place to watch football on weekends. Half price bar, crowded and lively atmosphere, and an AWESOME chicken and waffle sandwich!

    Great happy hour prices, no reason to stick around after. Love the cell phone kiosk, leave your phone charging without worries.

    Can't trust them to put your game on in a convenient location... even when you're there with a group and spending decent money.

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

    Come here if you like bartenders with chips on their shoulders. She rolled her eyes at the special and made us wait 10 minutes for it.

    Order the Sliders and Potato tots after/with your 4th/5th beer. Unlike some bars, they actually give you more than 2 sliders! Read more

    The deals are confusing to understand and the people here can be annoying and painfully loud!!! But it is not that bad of a bar over all

    Amazing drink deals during the week, but it packs out. Get there early with friends to snag a table.

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

    Drink prices are the best around. If you hit it early, there aren't any college kids and it's a nice, quiet place.

    DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BAR. One of my good friends was kicked out for being a "faggot"/"too gay." Absolutely disgusted with the intolerance shown by this establishment.

    Essential NYU: stop by on Tuesday nights for the (in)famous dollar beers and a visit with the entire senior class. Also: 1/2 price Mondays.

    The bacon-cheese tator tots are so good that if you order them you'll get a compliment from the bartender.

    If you are reading this on a Tuesday night between 9pm-2am, ask your bartender for a $1 domestic draft

    Easily the worst bouncers I've ever encountered. Enjoyed power tripping on customers. Wouldn't spend a dollar at the establishment again.

    13th step abandoned its last great quality by playing shitty 90s music and ignoring the pleas of better 2010 and over party songs for its college mourning crowd. Sorry, but F this.

    The bartenders are rude and this place is always crowded. Yet, you'll probably find yourself returning there reluctantly.

    Gets super packed, fratty, vague smell of vomit... Avoid this place unless you're looking for a college themed sh!tshow.
