    We just love the place & have been regulars for the last 2 years. Good strong drinks, great prices, more than decent bartenders. Fridays & Saturdays are crazy crowded & a lil annoying, so go Sun-Thur!

    Good deals, as expected of east village. Try their Irish coffee or spiked cider both priced at $7. It will warm any cold heart (or body)

    Traditional cozy neighborhood Irish pub that has a slightly antiquated feel to it. Best during the warmer months when you can grab a table on the sidewalk.

    GREAT little dive bar. My girlfriend and I come here often. Try their $5 pickle backs. Also, they play great 90s rock on Saturday nights!

    Andrew the bartender is awesome. If you can put up with some good old NYC ball busting, you'll find he's the man and takes VERY good care of regulars.

    Look for Andrew and Kerry! They are some of the nicest bartenders you will ever meet. Andrew's Snapple drink is also extremely potent.

    Uhhh "20oz sangria" is served in PINT glasses?! with tons of ice... That's just obnoxious. Lyings never cool, but red sangria IS good. Stop lying.

    Ask the bartender about what's on tap. Hapy Hour lasts until 8pm most nights, so the discount usually allows you to try tasty beers on the cheap.
