    A popular midtown happy hour spot that gets very crowded and very loud

    By far the loudest bar I've ever been to. Came here for a private event upstairs which was fine. The rest of the bar was packed, impossible to move through. I wouldn't come back, even if I was nearby.

    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...

    The meditranian choice was good. Music was loud and old.

    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

    Avin Narasimhan · January 31
  • Ron S.

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

    Packed full of douchebags

    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.

    Ashley Rose · December 28, 2014
  • Meg F.

    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.

    Collin · July 13, 2014
  • Rachel C.

    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.

    Rachel Caraballo · May 31, 2014
  • Helen K.

    Holy cow they are playing the music so loud like it's a frigid nightclub. Not coming back.

    Limited beer selection.

    Worst bar ever. They take your chairs away rudely

    Chandani · May 3, 2014
  • Andrea

    Overrated as hell, weak expensive drinks, and a manager with a snooty attitude. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    Andrea · April 15, 2014

    Great spot for a gathering with friends! Nice TVs and great drinks and food 👍👌🍹

  • Efrain S.

    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.

  • Cindy C B.

    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.

    Bar special: $13 burger and a brew if you order at the bar.

    Feels like a Chicago bar

  • Gaudiness

    If you like jalapeños try the nachos ❤️

    Gaudiness · January 23, 2014
  • Molly B.

    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.

    Molly Bagby · December 21, 2013
  • Maryan D.

    terrible service.

    Maryan Dumas · October 19, 2013

    Nice place for happy hour! Sangria was great and so were the nachos.

    HORRIBLE AND TERRIFYING BAR!!! A.GUY.WHIPPED.OUT.A.GUN.IN.THIS.BAR! Regardless of whether or not this was an isolated incident at this bar no bar/alcohol is worth me putting my LIFE in danger. BEWARE!

    Fun place to socialize and relax with a beer and friends

    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.

    Mel Laney · December 23, 2012
  • Neto B.

    Good place to watch the steelers but they never turn on the heat Sunday mornings

    Neto Brossard · December 23, 2012
  • Neto B.

    Try the buffalo shrimp

    Neto Brossard · December 9, 2012

    If you ever think about coming here....just don't.

    Try the Basil Hayden Bourbon - Neat. Ok 1 cube.

    So. Many. JAPs.

    Cookie dough smash is the way to go!

    Karin Santiago · June 12, 2012

    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.

    Jen Krawczyk · May 7, 2012
  • N.M. M.

    If you get the honey jack & coke, make sure to get a sir order of Belgian Waffles!!
