I found this bar to be unwelcoming and overpriced. I've never had a ruder bartender and this was shocking considering there was NO ONE else in the bar, on a Friday night....no wonder. I wouldn't recommend this bar to anyone.

Excellent location right on bowery/houston, always able to get in & probably get a table, food is surprisingly good

Excellent location right on bowery/houston, always able to get in & probably get a table, food is surprisingly good

Pros: can always find seats for most games, food is pretty solid

Cons: has gone down since Doc (best bartender ever) left

I've been going to Slainte since 2004. Put it this way, the night I asked my wife to marry me, we came here afterwards, and I asked her again. It's that type of place, you feel like family here. One of the things that attracted me initially to this place was that it wasn't that crowded after work. But like all good places, word gets around, and more and more people started showing up, which is good for the owners, I'm sure. There's a great selection of English and Irish brews on hand, as well as all the American favorites. The bar food is excellent. The Shepard's Pie and Bangers & Mash are some of the best I've had this side of the pond. The bar and waitstaff are extremely attentive, no matter how crowded it gets. There's plenty of TVs to catch whatever sports action is going on, and a large projector on the back wall. If you happen to be in New York during the week, stop by, I'm probably sitting in the back with my computer open, enjoying a brew and some good food.

Pros: Quiet during the week, 2 for 1 brews, free wifi

Cons: Not many, just crowded on weekends.

I just went to Slainte last Tuesday night for the first time. Normally I dont go out on tuesday nights (I save my drinking for the weekends) but I had a particularly rough day at the office so I decided to have a beer after work. My experience at slainte was so amazing due to the great waitress, bartender, music and overall atmosphere that I totally forgot about the rough day I was having. I am absolutely going to become a regular slainte goer!!!!! Very highly recommended.

Like others, I found the wait staff was rude, mean, and tried to cheat my friends, and almost ruined a going-away gathering. Like other reviewers who had bad experiences, I've since heard a lot of similar stories about Slainte after this happened - what a terrible bar, there are way better places to spend your money.

Pros: Not too many, they have decent chickenpot pie

Cons: Incredibly rude bartenders & waitstaff, terrible service

There is no dearth of Irish pubs in the area bounded by 14th street but Slainte is right up there with Puck Fair, McSorley's and the Baggot Inn.

The food is great. With special touches like fresh bread from the nearby Parisi bakery on Elizabeth street, the menu is significantly more expansive than your average bar food palette. Among the highlights are the macadamia chicken salad (the avocado and mango lend a mellow touch), the buffalo wings (never skimpy like at Off the Wagon type places), and of course the burger. The meat is seasoned lightly enough to notice an extra kick, and the fries have a unique taste (they may be fried in peanut oil...I need to check on this).

The kitchen closes at midnight, but that's plenty of time to take advantage of monday night football deals. On that topic, there are six tvs and a projection screen for the main event.

The bartenders are friendly, and as the addage goes, a well-tipped bartender will open his heart and his bottles and go that extra mile for you and your large party that ordered 19 lemon drops. The booze is reasonably priced for Manhattan.

Personal disclosure: I've celebrated my birthday here for the past 4 years running, since the space accommodates large groups without feeling cramped. The only time I've ever felt like it was TOO crowded was New Year's Eve.

I held a birthday party here after it was recommended by a friend and the experience was perfect. I had a very hard time finding a bar in Manhattan that would reserve an area of tables without making you buy food, bottle service, or a private room. Slainte was able to do it with no problem. When we arrived the tables were reserved for us as promised and they had a waitress waiting. It's a great place for a party if you are looking for a middle ground between a dive and a nicer bar. They were so accommodating and didn't make you shell out a lot of money in order to have a good time. Will definitely go back.

Definately one of the better irish bars that offers good beers and food, also crowd is nice especially at weekends considering its in manhattan.

This is one of my favourite places to go for a relaxing few drinks with friends. They have an amazing selection of beers, the food is tasty and the staff are really friendly, helpful and good fun? particularly those hot Irish barmen! My friends and I have celebrated lots of birthdays here and I would definitely recommend it for parties and after-work drinks.

Fun place where bartenders and wait staff enjoy having a laugh and creating the right atmosphere for socializing. Consistently great Guinness (no means guaranteed in other "Irish" bars in the city). The Irish Breakfast has sausages to die for

Having just arrived from Ireland, I was looking for an authentic Irish pub that would replicate Ireland's old world charm. I thought Slainte might be such a place, but alas, I was confronted with rude wait staff, disrespectful owners, and roache s crawling around in the corners! If this mockery is supposed to represent Ireland's finest, then it won't be long until I move back home!

The bartenders at this place tried to rip me off. I have met many other people who told me similar stories. Stay the hell away from this place if you have any common sense at all!

One of the best deals around. 2-for-1 drafts Mon- thru Friday. Great atmosphere, although the music selection leaves little to be desired. Nice and spacy so even when it gets crowded, it doesn't feel like it. Bar grub was pretty decent too, get the mushroom appetizer. Overall though a very enjoyable experience!

Pros: Happy Hour special

Cons: music run by bartenders- no jukebox.

I just had my birthday party hour at Slainte and it was an overall great time. We went on a Friday after work, so we got to take advantage of both the normal Happy Hour special and then Patrick set up with a drink special till 11:00 p.m. that night. The drink special didn't include the happy birthday shots we did later in the night! I highly recommend Slainte if you're looking for a chill, great time with your friends.

Slainte (pronounced Slan-Chuh) is a great Irish pub on Bowery between Houston and Bleeker. It has a great selection of beers, and Irish accents can be heard all around. My favorite beer that they have on tap is Hefeweizen--an unfiltered wheat beer-- $5 for a 20 oz. pint. But if you don't like it, you're likely to enjoy one of their other 14 beers on tap. Give this bar a try, you won't regret it.

My friends and I went here tonight after dinner @ nearby Agozar. It wasn't crowded at all. I guess that was due to the rainy weather. Anyway, it's a nice, low key relaxing bar. My friends and I just ordered wine & beers while watcing the NBA game. Our waitress was very nice. Overall, a nice chill place.

can't say enough about this place: while the crowd isn't exciting, the bar is great. Lots of exposed brick, dark wood make this a really inviting environment. They have a ton of great beers on tap, and all at reasonable prices.

The staff is fantastic, and they did a great job for a thursday night happy hour we had for about 60 people (and they gave us a fantastic deal).

Perfect neighborhood bar, not pretentious, just good clean fun.

Slainte follows a new Irish bar formula that's had success around the city in recent years. A sense of intimacy is traded for expansive space, and a brisk, clean interior replaces the well-worn comfort of moreā€¦
