    Best sports/dive bar in Chelsea. Bartenders are great, and have become good friends of mine. The regulars are friendly, and very welcoming to faces both familiar and new. The food is good, too! Great

    http://www.burgerweekly.com/voted-best-burger-by I hate to be exceedingly negative, but Flight 151′s burger was pretty bad. The bun was so dry I was able to tap my finger against it & keep a beat.

    Another bar that has Guinness on tap! The bathroom is really funny... The food is cheap and good which is hard to find in NYC! Mozz sticks are awesome but the sauce is kinda gross.

    Every Tuesday is "Flip Night" at Flight 151 in Chelsea. Swing by after 7PM, and the bartender will flip a coin when you order a drink. If you guess correctly whether it's heads or tails, the drinkis

    Trashy and divey, not in a good way. BUT, cheap as hell with nice staff and trivia! Great space for a large group if you let 'em know in advance.

    "Announcements" from the flight deck at piped into the bathrooms. Cute detail. Everything here is great, but note the sparkly red Virgin Atlantic plane model hanging up behind the bar.

    This place sucks. Mediocre food and their booth chairs are so flimsy. You spend the whole night shoving back and forth with the person behind you, and end up sitting at 45 degrees. Avoid!!!

    You get what you pay for at brunch. "breakfast burger" is a poorly constructed omelette on a burger bun. Bacon is burnt. Friend"s pancakes looked ok.

    As my boyfriend learned, if you haven't been there in over a year, don't ever forget a waitress' name. They are testy... Ok she was a nasty b*tch ;) won't name names but she might be a mayor ;)

    "Don't order the Steak Sandwich" for $14.95. #RIPOFF. Mostly bread and few slithers of tasteless tough meat. Not worth the price AT ALL.
