    They have a great and nostalgic vibe in the bar. Try one of the local beers! Artists and staff are really nice and funny. If you are in Coney Island you must see a Freak Show <3

    Don't be a chump & order a Bud. Try one of the 5 "Coney Island" beers instead! Delicious and unique.

    The bar is outstanding and if you go to the sideshow performance you can bring your booze in. How "freak"ing cool is that?

    The name conveniently applies to both the show and the audience, which is to say, I love it.

    Step right up for lively circus-sideshow entertainment, complete with a fire-eater, sword swallower, snake charmer, and contortionist.

    Great show , it does a little hot in there. But you can buy a water at the bar to cool yourself off. The burlesque show is awesome.

    Whatever cider it is they sell is ridiculously sweet so if you like your ciders bitter(like me) I'd avoid it.
