    The singing is horrific. Basically pollution to your ears. You can't hear anything except for their singing and it is torture!

    Great, small dive bar. Games in the back, live music, two bars, excellent staff.

    HK struggles in the date spot arena but this place is a gem. If he can hang here, he's solid. Skee ball always and dueling piano bar Fridays.

    Not the same spot it was when I first started visiting to New York. It's nothing like the old Bar 9. Boring, bar tender did not tend. Had one drink and left.

    Great bar in midtown, where great bars are few and far between. Surprisingly good guac, and rad staff.

    This joint is run by madmen: I love Bar Nine.

    The El Chapo (the "danger dog"!) makes for a light dinner or pleasant appetizer. For best results, get their house habenero sauce, and follow that with a shot of tequila, or three.

    Austin is a great waiter, the service is always good as are the nachos.
