    Food is fair to poor, cocktails were bland in this uber-noisy happy hour joint.

    Very weird vibe. Bar/trying to be a club. Def not expecting that in that neighborhood and crowd...

    Decent place during the week for post-work beer if you are in the area. Avoid like the plague on Friday- packed to the brim with the worst midtown east crowd

    Friday nights they have $40 open bar deal. So get there early to enjoy as much as possible.

    Cal ahead to see if they're hosting parties when you want to go- any closure of the bar area causes cramped happy hour-ing.

    I've only ever been here for happy hour events when the place is rented out by a group. Kind of a odd location, not really sure what they're going for decor-wise. Drinks are average for nyc.

    Dangerous place. We got attacked by 3 drunk men coming out of public house last night. Luckily we fought them off after they punched a female co-worker in the mouth all while their bouncers laughed.

    Came on a Friday night for a friend's open bar. Would never ever pay to be in here. Loud, crowded, with an inexplicable line out the door. Bartenders are unfriendly hotties.

    I come here all the time. The burgers are solid. They serve them on English muffins. Just like mom use to do. Agreed after 5 I don't come here. It has a club vibe during that time. But if you're into.

    I order a Tanqueray and soda, and the "bartender" asked me what that was! She even had to have a manager make a Black Russian because she didn't know how.

    This place is a shit-show. If you are 27+ the only reason to come here is if your co-worker/friend wins an Open Bar. Otherwise, have fun with the douchebags.

    Steelers Bar on Sunday. Felt kind of dead because the place is big and there were lots of empty tables. Only a fee people cheering when Steelers make a good play.

    Leave your business card and you're pretty much guaranteed a free hour long open bar (for up to 50 people), but it's always way too crowded after work.
