Wings were awesome if you like heat just ask

Craft beers, great bartenders, etc
Great whiskey. Great beer. Great food. Really great boozy brunch special.
Great whiskey & craft beer spot with a metal edge. Plus, it's run by great folks. Check out events like the Iron Maiden beer release or a beer & burger pairing to songs from Appetite for Destruction.
You can be an attractive female and come here alone without being harassed by a bunch of d-bags. In my experience, anyways.
Like the people but $9 well drinks are insane.
Upstairs doesn't have much personality. Maybe stick to the basement?
Never really crowded, even on the weekends, so it's a great place to just hang out with a couple of friends. Always a great selection of beer.
You can get into the place by going left at the door and taking the stairs down. Also stairs behind a door in Billy Hurricane's upstairs.
Recently expanded to two floors and a kitchen, this spot delivers on its newly-edited promise: Bourbon. Beer. Food. Rock.
Ask for Dave. He's been here through several different management changes.
Best whiskey bar in town. A friendly vibe with TVs for sports fans, and single barrel rare vintage for everyone else. Kick back and enjoy.
Both upstairs and downstairs now, this place is amazing!
Great beer, great atmosphere, amazing service. I'll be back every week for the Wednesday tastings.
The tater tots are out of this world
Purchase a Get Real Craft Beer Passport for $30 and get 39 beers at 39 bars from 7/31/13 to 9/3/13 including @IdleHandsBar http://bit.ly/beerpass
Order food from Station B upstairs. They'll bring it to you in Idle Hands bar itself.
Tue & Wed with Rob on the stick is the best reason I can think of to drink here.
Get a shot of Cinerator!! Just ask Rob!!
Great bourbon selection at quite reasonable prices, considering this is NYC. Finally tasted the 2012 Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch here.... Amazing bourbon!
The bartender has a Cry-Baby tee shirt and will discuss bourbon and beer with you. That's all you need to know.
Slightly pricey, but good music and excellent beer and liquor selection. And music is at normal volume so- YOU CAN ACTUALLY TALK.
very nice location and awesome place.
Highly recommend the bacon tator tots on the menu. Bacon + Tator Tots = pure genius.
Great beer and whiskey selection, especially for the $
Download the Playmysong app for your mobile phone and choose the Idle Hands Bar jukebox... then start selecting the music you want to hear!
This was the craziest after hours spot in the early to mid 90's, if u go check to see if their is still those basement hideaways.
One word: bourbon.
Post-Hurricane Sandy, these crazies added Cheerwine to the soda gun. Only bar in NYC to do it.
Marc & Rev are the shit!
Meh. Don't love this place.
Here on a Monday? Get the @playmysongapp for iOS & Android!! Choose your song from IHB playlist and share your choice with friends on Twitter & Facebook!
2-4-1 on Sunday night, who knew?
Maiden /Smuttynose beer pairing
This place will be so much cooler once Just Ink gets off his ass and completes the mural
If the line to the bathroom is long go upstairs to Billy Hurricanes, there are four bathrooms and they are usually empty.
Be sure to visit Dan upstairs at That Burger for awesome burgers and tots!! (Porto Party is ma favee!) He LOVES when you rip on the Phillies too!!
We like Stacey and Brian behind the bar!
Puke in the toilet and blood in the sink. Just another saturday in the village
Cheer on the Houston Texans here if you're a displaced fan in NYC.
They play Metal here, LOVE it!
