    A barfly's bar. Mingle with cops and locals. Eat a taco. Do a shot. Repeat until a) sad, b) no longer sad, c) birthday girl falls off bar.

    The pickle juice and whisky shot is a very interesting combo to say the least.

    Jury Duty Day - Post service Happy Hour. You made it through the day, now reward yourself with a cocktail. Here's my pick for the immediate area

    Very friendly service, but otherwise a pretty typical Irish (?) sports bar. Dark and loud and sticky.

    Hands down, the best staff of any bar in NYC! And the pickle backs aren't bad either!

    This is my favorite bar. It gets loud in the evenings, so sit outside if it's warm enough. They make a great hot toddy!

    It's called Whiskey Tavern. So if you want to shoot Jager bombs all night, you're in the wrong place.

    The most personable and welcoming bartenders I've seen. When a bartender acknowledges you by eye and never has to ask your last name on a busy night, you get my 10/10 review

    Perfect for birthdays! Not for the faint of heart though as picklebacks are their speciality

    Picklebacks are a tradition, even if you don't like pickle juice.

    Southern Ade is excellent. This is a fantastic place. Really close to perfect.

    A little bit of everything. Play some games, have a pickleback or five, dance like a fool, come back the next day and do it again.

    Tots, pickle backs, and bacon bowl may be the favs... But THE PORK TACOS were amazing!!!! Ask for a side of the salsa verde to add on... And you will be in awe. #epic

    Pickleback shots and boxes of Jenga make this humble joint on Baxter Street a favorite among locals.

    Their White Russians are pretty good but the Black Russians are even better! Once you have a Black Russian you never go back to a White Russian.

    Absolutely best bar I have ever been to. Rob and Phillip are awesome and make you feel right at home in a new city. Try the Pickle Back for an interesting new taste for your buds.

    Bartender charm: on fire! Introduced himself to everyone in my party. Also treated me to my first Spicy Back (Pickle Back Shot + Tabasco + pepperchino). Delish! Just the right hint of heat.

    Best pickle back I've had in the city. Regular or spicy. Do yourself a favor.

    Bartender hovered over us to buy drinks when we only came to enjoy ourselves for a little while. Horrible experience. Never again

    There are a few great things to mention about this spot: Spicy Pickle Back shots, it's a JMU bar, the crowd is bro-y but not douche-y, & Rob the bartender is super nice and entertaining.

    Bartenders are wild, all around rowdy atmosphere after dark befitting of a place with the name "Whiskey Tavern". To be honest the name is what drew me here and I wasn't disappointed

    Catch the game in their back patio area. One of the best bars in Chinatown. Jeremy would pass, but I'd take a pickle back. #Linsanity.

    Dare to call it a dive bar and risk me reaching through the internet to slap you in the mouth. If you want to find out if your date can really hang, end the night here.

    Taco Tuesday, live music on Wednesday, heavenly tater tots, and an awesome bar staff. You can't go wrong with this place. Oh, and try a spicy back (spicy pickle back) if you've never experienced it. Read more

    Pickle backed shots is a must. They do a good pour on their drinks too.

    Had the chicken strips - tender and tasty - who ever is cooking there makes the best bar food.

    The pickle back and spicy back sound terrible but are really delicious. Shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice (or spicy pickle juice)
