    I'm sure just by the look alone you have to try the drunken coconut,but an even better drink was the Pussy Galore.I found the jerk wings quiet tasty also.

    Don't be alarmed when you see this bar sits just above 13th Step - the atmosphere couldn't be any more different. Play a game of pool in front of one of the fireplaces while enjoying a Sorrel Cider.

    In addition to warming libations like the hot Sorrel Cider, the bar has two working fireplaces — one of which is conveniently situated next to one of the bar's pool tables. Read more

    Best Jamaican Bar: Try the Drunken Coconut ($13): fresh coconut water and Appleton Gold Rum in a coconut shell that’s had its top hacked off by a machete-wielding employee.

    Cool spot with a good vibe and bonus points for having both a fireplace *and* a pool table. Pass on the old fashioned tho... not enough love put into the cocktail.

    Decor and drinks are awesome here. Witnessed a guy who didn't tip after running up $100 tab get called out by the bartender. My tip: Tip your bartender, they are amazing!

    This place is somewhat true to the Jamaican theme. They have the brand of citrus soda, ginger beer and rum that I actually had while in Jamaica. And of course, Red Stripe.

    A cut above its undergrad neighbors, but still quite busy and relatively affordable. A good spot for a large group to have a lively gathering

    Great fire places in the winter, lovely "outdoor" space when warm upstairs. Great rum, great happy hour deals and they have ting!

    Great bar that's tucked upstairs. It does get very crowded on the weekends so I would come earlier just to score a table.

    Don't be put off by the (arguably) tasteless awning. Inside this place is cozy, warm and relaxed. The sliders were a nice snack too.

    a hidden gem. take the steps to the right of 13th Step and enter through the door on the left.

    Feels like a quick trip to Cuba and back. Sip a bourbon and enjoy some live music by the lookout windows over the avenue when it's not packed.

    Bit divey, but a nice roomy area for larger groups. Fun tropical cocktails and good selection of snacks.

    The fries are cooked perfectly, crispy with seasoning and a delicious aioli sauce.

    They have a nicer pool table and window seating that gives a good view of Second Avenue. Not a bad choice but can get overcrowded.

    Kind of speakeasy-ish since the entrance looks like you're going into an apartment. And for some reason it's also James Bond themed.

    Was here for a bday & reserved a back room weeks in advance. We arrived early & they'd given our room away bc they were busy. They gave it to us 2 hrs late only bc we threatened to write bad reviews.

    Brought my Jamaican friends here and they were SO disappointed. We all felt duped. They put it best: "Nothing about this place is Jamaican. The most Jamaican part of this bar is the bathroom."
