    I loved clean finish on the bar and also the seating arrangement. It could be private and also socially inviting too.

    You know it's a recession when they go from $3 cosmos to $4 dollar cosmos....someone's for the new tiles and frames on the wall! Love this place! It's like my living room!

    Favorite date-night spot. Packed during their late-night happy hour; otherwise a good place for having conversations over a drink in an otherwise crazy-loud neighborhood.

    Finally receiving a much needed (and awesome) renovation, this divey-lounge (or loungey dive?) is the "Cheers" of gay Hell's Kitchen. You cannot miss $3 cosmos on Monday and their amazing happy hours.

    If doing a bar crawl come here for Happy Hour. Much cheaper and with a lot of the same clientele. Lots of hot guys, models, and rather nice drag queens.

    Packed with good looking eye candy least on the walls. Usually crowded, it's a popular stop on the Hells Kitchen gay bar crawl.

    Come to watch the sexy videos on the wall. Great atomsphere for grabbing a beer and chillin' on a couch. Upbeat music too.

    Try the Pearl Necklace cocktail. It's as smooth as a chocolate hazelnut cream dribk.

    Nothing particularly wrong, but Fairytail is edgier, 9th Avenue Saloon cheaper and Hardware edgier, cheaper, and--live shows. Barrage does have lots of nice All-American type guys.

    Try saying the drink names with a straight face, I dare ya. :p Beware of the frozen margaritas: insta-brain freeze and mega sugary.

    If you're sitting down near the walls, don't wait for the "server," he'll take forever. Just go to the bar and grab a Cock Ring.
