    A favorite cocktail bar, with great music and service. Great for a drink after work, or a “not-too-loud” Friday night. The bartenders are always on point with their drinks and suggestions.

    One of the best burgers in the city, affordable ($12) and served until late night! Good cocktails too

    Cocktails how you want them at West Village newcomer The Happiest Hour, opening next week. Try the Little Red Dress, made with strawberry, cocoa and soda. It goes well with rum, red wine, or vodka. Read more

    Link Ray; This cocktail references Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray, and coaxes celery's sharper notes out with a French bitters called Suze. + Customizable with gin, rhum agricole, or jalapeno-infused tequila. Read more

    Try the link ray or the surfer girl. There is only one bathroom for EVERYONE. Pee in the corner and hope for the best 🤔

    This is a place where you can pair a mouthwatering burger with a crafted cocktail and enjoy both! If you want to party past HH, head right downstairs to Slowly Shirley to boogie.

    It's a hip vibe here and the seats on the sidewalk or just inside could be good for people watching but you have to move them around a bit. The back area is better for a small group.

    Great spot for group IF you have a reservation in back area - otherwise it can be a crowded place to stand on weekends; hear there is great spot downstairs

    Delicious burgers and cocktails. Very similar to a tiki bar. The bartenders are extremely knowledgable, as well.

    Great for people watching, crowded but not overly so, and reasonably priced drinks. I'm a fan of the link ray with gin

    Yuppie central for now (might pass when the hype fades), but the decor and layout is charming and unique.

    Tasty burger, but the +$4 fries are a joke. What is this, an order of fries for ants!? Fun bar/restaurant vibe.

    The Happiest Burger is a take on the Big Mac. All the toppings are the same, except they also add tomato. The quality of the beef, special sauce, bun, and onions are superior in every facet. Read more

    This place is trash. Ordered a simple martini and it was really really bad - it even had a leaf of some sort in it that was not a part of the drink. Don’t even get me started on the wine...

    Great new bar from the Acme team that harks back to 50's LA. Must try the In-N-Out inspired burger and cocktails. Don't miss Slowly Shirleys, the swankier (and pricier) speakeasy downstairs.

    This place is sh**. Rude staff. Overpriced drinks. Bad quality food. Tacky decor. Don't waste your time. There are many many better places around the west village. Skip this one.

    I am very sad to say that this bar shall be called the unhappiest hour. Very rude service and disrespectful of the latin American community. I will never return again. Horrible experience.

    Link Ray with jalapeño tequila (as server recommended) was not the balanced pour I was hoping for. Might work better with gin.

    It's nice, but it's also just a an upscale Commodore, which has better food and cocktails.

    sat in a tiny table with tiny chairs and was served a tiny beer for not a tiny price. Hostess told us that we may have to move eventually but it was so loud, we could hardly even hear her or ourselves

    The drinks menu incorporates midcentury themes with flavor profiles that will be instantly recognizable. Try the celery-based Link Ray, made with your choice of jalapeño tequila, gin, vodka or rum. Read more
