    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.

    Every weekend has a different special. My favorite is flip night. Heads or tails w bar tender. If you win: free drink

    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 ;)

    Happy hour 5-7 and flip a coin night on Tuesdays. Best after work spot for cheap, easy drinks in Chelsea

    Always cheap happy hours with strong well drinks. And you get to draw on the table with crayons!

  • Ben G.

    Cheap beer, cheap food, kitschy theme and not crowded on a weeknight - everything a dive bar should be.

    Ben G · August 28, 2014

    If you go for lunch or happy hour ask for Rachel the bartender. Funny and generous with the alcohol.

    I love all of the Bartenders here. Take good care of them and they'll take good care of you.

    A "Dive" bar with an aviation theme. Get it? :) Great lunch specials and great decor. Read more

    Gorgeous servers, kitschy decor and a relaxed vibe: The perfect ingredients to make a local watering hole.

    Great Happy Hour spot near Chelsea Market. My favorites are Flip Night and Trivia Night.

    great bathroom even has flight safety instructions telling you in case of crashlanding to put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye

    Brian Mead · November 24, 2013
  • Lindsey G.

    Make sure Steve is behind the bar (wed-sat) he's the best and tell him you know Lindsey.

    Strong gin and tonic! Great prices on drinks and in a cool part of the city

    Alex K · July 28, 2014
  • John S.

    On Tuesdays it's flip a coin for a free drink. Best odds in NYC.

    John Sampogna · August 4, 2010

    Very Nice Chelsea neighborhood bar. Would recommend having a drink ar 10 here

    Chris Souren · December 13, 2013

    Sit at a table. Tip the waitress. Incredibly unwelcoming bartender.

    Michiko B · January 13, 2011
  • Lily F.

    If you like stale chips and doucher waitstaff, it's a must go! Try the overpriced margaritas.

    Johan is a crazy fun sexy mofo who kicks ass at his job. Give this man a raise!!! P.s. ask Johan what his #1 question is.

    "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.

    Ben Hughes · February 24, 2014
  • mark b.

    cheap priced drinks (all the time) with out that dirty dive feel or crowd.

    You must try the wednesday special: buffalo chicken nachos!

    Caleb Timmreck · November 16, 2011
  • Meg D.

    This is a poor excuse for trivia night- one question every 15 minutes?! No teams. No bueno

    Meg Deedy · December 13, 2012

    U get a flight attendant to help u in the restroom.

    Trivia night is the best, the judges will give you a hard time for terrible answers
