20cent wings + 1/2 off drinks = FTW. People need to stop complaining about how slow the service is. After going there a few time you'll learn how to manage your ordering skills and timing.

I'm a very easygoing person, and I'm also patient, but there is no way 1849 is going to survive its business with such HORRENDOUS staff. Service is REPULSIVE. The first time I went, it took them a while to take my order without much of an

This bar is the absolute worst in nyc. I went there with my friends and even when we were standing on the line outside, we were being HARRASSED! The bouncers were yelling and cursing at us, for no apparent reason. The manager was, of course, scared of the bouncer and did absolutely nothing. We ended up calling the police on the bouncers for the assault and harrassment! NOT how the night was planned to be! I will never return to this place again nor will i recommend it to anyone. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU WANTED TO BE CURSED AT, IGNORED, AND HARRASSED!!!!!!

If you want to be told 'go f___ yourself' by the staff when you ask for a glass of water ... YOU'VE FOUND YOUR PLACE! They take your money and you get a F U To your face for asking for WATER! What Planet is this place on?! They treat you like this cuz they Add 20% Gratuity to your bill! I live and play in Manhattan the finest high end restaurants don't do more than 15%!!!! IF THEY ADD ANYTHING TO YOUR BILL! Let's just say, after we were insulted we weren't about to tip 20% Are they insane? We were then told it's MANDATORY! It's called gratuity for a reason, and we happened to have a lawyer in our group who definitely knew better! So we crossed the 20% off, and they got NULL! I'm still unhappy when I think of the rudeness we've encountered there! They bully you, they ignore you, they cheat you! If it wasn't for those poor sucker tourists that don't know what they are in for, this place would have been LONG GONE! And a deserving business would have more patrons, that wouldn't otherwise go there! RIDICULOUS!

I checked off one star for the rating, because you have to rate it...but the EH should be more along the lines NOT IF YOU PAID ME!!!

I just noticed happy go luckys post "DEFINITION OF HORRIBLE" and Oh my! that's pretty much what happened to us!

In response to his review: The muffin top QUEEN behind the bar told my man I swear!!!! WAIT FOR IT! "GO F_ YOURSELF!" when he asked for water! My boyfriend is chill, but I've never seen him so furious. This place is the PITS OF THE US! You PAY to get insulted! We crossed out the 20% right off the bill And left 0! I should have thrown up the cheap nasty wings as I didn't want to take ANYTHING from that place when I stepped outside those doors! I sometimes wonder, whether it's legal to sit on the sidewalk with a sign telling my story! cheers mate to a shi- time had by all

I used to come to this place every other week with my friends to have a great time. Always looked forward to the delicious wings, beer and a good time. There was a waiter there by the name of Alan, he was awesome and the reason this place was great. Recently I visited and all the waiters/waitress were different. Not to mention the attitude I got from one of the guys with "boxing champ" T-Shirts behind them. I asked if it was possible to add an additional seat with "excuse me". He turns around points a finger at me and said "Don't Yo me". I was furious by my friends told me to not say anything back because he was responsible for our food. The wings came 45 mins after ordering and it was just chaos. I never wanted to write a bad review until now... I'm disappointed and going to look for a new wings place

Pros: Wings and the happy hour!

Cons: servers

I visited the restaurant, the server was extremely rude that it comletely ruined my weekend. The food aweful, the bouncer was extremely raciest that his behavior was absolutely disturbing. I am going out to have a good time but end up being one of the worst night ever. So you are going out to have a good time, DO NOT GO TO 1849. I can't not believe this kind of restaurant is still in business.

This is truly the most horrible bar in NYC. I have given this bar two tries and the EXACT same experience happened both times. When I arrived, the bar was empty and the waiter sat my friend and me at a table for two. After two hours of eating and drinking, the waiter told us that we had to move tables or we would be kicked out of the bar. Even though the bar was EMPTY, he said that he needed our table in case it got busy. We said that we would move once people arrived, and he started cursing at us. He and other waiters did this to everyone who walked in the bar. This place may have pretty chairs and cheap happy hour, but trust me RUN AWAY!!!! NOT WORTH IT!!!!! WORST BAR IN NYC!

Pros: n/a

Cons: The nastiest staff I have ever met

.

I made the mistake of going to this bar with a group of friends the other night and I was appalled at the disrespect we received from the bouncer to the manager. The bouncer gave my 30-something year old friends a hard time and wanted to be paid off, then the bartender proceeded to ignore our party for about 45 minutes and when we finally got their attention they were rude and walked away while we were speaking to them. While all of this was going on the manager was laughing and talking on the phone, completely oblivious to what was going on and ignored us as well. With all of the bars in this area I will NEVER come here again and I would not recommend this place to anyone unless they would like to be ignored, disrespected and given an attitude every step of the way.

Reading below people had some bad things to say about this place but I go every Monday with my buddy's and never have a problem. Jessica, the bubbly and sexy waitress always makes sure we have a great time. You really cant beat the cheapo wings and 3 dollar suds.

I have never had such a bad experience. The bartenders at this place are rude and downright nasty. We were told they were going call the cops on us after we realized we needed to leave and asked to cancel the ONE appetizer we ordered. This came after we had already spent 3 hours there and had a substantial tab to pay. The bartender, who we basically begged for attention all evening, became belligerent and nasty and when we spoke to the manager he wasn't much better. We will NEVER return there and do not recommend anyone wasting their time by going there either.

THIS PLACE IS THE WORST DINING EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER GONE TO. DON'T BELIEVE ME, JUST GO THERE AND SEE HOW RUDE THE BOUNCER IS. IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH SEE HOW RUDE THE WAITOR IS (THERE IS ONLY ONE HE HAS BEEN THERE FOR 4 1/2 YEARS "WHAT A LOSER") AND HIS SISTER IS THE ALTERNATIVE (SHE IS THE ONE WITH THE GIANT MUFFIN TOP) IF YOU STILL HAVEN'T HAD ENOUGH AT THIS POINT ASK FOR SOME WATER (HAHAHHAHA THEY DON'T SERVE IT = WHAT!!!! YEP THAT IS CORRECT THEY WON'T GIVE YOU WATER BECAUSE "THE MANAGER IS WATCHING US ON THE CAMERAS AND WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO" BUT WE CAN SELL YOU A BOTTLE OF WATER FOR 3 BUCKS?????? IF YOU ARE STILL YEARNING FOR MORE OF AN A$$ POUNDING ASK FOR YOUR BILL WHICH WILL HAVE A 20% AUTOMATIC GRATUITY WHETHER YOU ARE A PARTY OF 1 OR LARGER (HMMM I WONDER WHY THE STAFF HAS NO INCENTIVE TO HELP YOU)

P.S. WHEN TELLING THE WAITOR "BEN" THAT I REALLY ENJOYED THE NACHOS AND THE ATMOSPHERE BUT THE AUTOMATIC 20% GRATUITY DIDN'T MAKE SENSE HE SAID AND I QOUTE "YOUR BILL IS ONLY SIXTEEN DOLLARS WHY DON'T YOU STOP B@#CHING ABOUT IT AND PAY IT" WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHOA LEFT FIELD! I SAID "NO I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND I AM NOT ARGUING WITH YOU OR SAYING ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE SERVICE I WOULD BE HAPPY TO PAY 20% IN MOST CASES AS I WORK IN THE INDUSTRY AND UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE 20% AUTOMATIC GRATUITY.

BEN: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO LEAVE A COMMENT CARD?

ME: UHHH ALRIGHT WHATEVER THAT MEANS

IN STEPS BOUNCER!!!!!

BOUNCER: YOU BETTER SHUT YOUR F'ING MOUTH! (FINGER IN MY FACE WHILE I AM SITTING DOWN) YOU ARE PISSING OFF THE STAFF AND IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT UP I WILL EMBARRASS YOU IN FRONT OF YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND KNOCK YOUR F'ING TEETH IN!

MY GIRLFRIEND: IT IS TIME TO LEAVE

ME: YOUR RIGHT LET'S GO

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THIS STORY YOU SHOULD GO INTO THIS QUAINT LITTLE LOVE SHACK AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF, JUST PLEASE DONT SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU AS WELL AS 40+ OTHER PEOPLE ON THIS SITE AND YELP.

P.P.S. IF THERE IS A POSITIVE REVIEW ON THIS PLACE IT HAS TO BE WRITTEN BY ONE OF THEIR FRIENDS OR THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE A VESTED INTEREST BECAUSE THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE (HORRIBLE SHOULD BE SIZE 400 FONT AND BOLDED)

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND GOODLUCK IF YOU GO HERE!

Lousy unfrendly bar
I tried to stop in on a rainy cold day after I just played a gig with my mandolin.
The idiot bouncer at the door said I could not come in with my mandolin.
I said, "well I can't leave it outside!!"
He said I could not come in.

I don't know why a bar in Greenwich Village, the heart of the NY music scene, would be prejudice against musicians, but my advice is simple,
DO NOT GO THERE.
It is lousy

I've never seen a bouncer act as childish as I did last night. He claimed my sister had a fake ID- anyone who knows what a PA driver's license looks like knows you just can't duplicate them! He refused to even look her in the eye, and to make matters worse the two guys who walked up to get in after us weren't allowed in because they consoled us! Call me crazy, but, turning away two pretty girls, with a lot of money to spend seems like bad business to me.

I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE CITY FOR 2 YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HOTTER BARTENDER! IT WAS A RANDOM TUESDAY NIGHT AND I WALKED IN TO SEE A ANGEL.

When I went to 1849 for the first time and saw how different it was from all of the other bars on Bleecker Street I knew that I'd be going back. The western theme is unique with all the antlers and tumbleweed. The carved natives at the front are amazing. What I like most are the red velvet couches and chairs. They make it more comfortable than most bars. When I added in the food and drink specials and the big screen TV??s, I knew I was home. Literally, it feels like home but better when you watch a game sitting on one of the couches, eating the 20 cent chicken wings, having a beer with friends. I think that most of the people who go there agree with me because there's always a good feeling in the place. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

I called around 3pm to see if they would be showing the fight later in the evening. The person who answered the phone enthusiastically assured me they were. A bunch of us headed down to the bar to have dinner and drinks. Before sitting down we, again, confirmed with the waitress that bar was planning to show the fight. "Yes, we are," she said.

The food was terrible, but at least we had seats. 10pm rolled around...NO FIGHT! I asked our NEW waitress to turn it on. She said she wasn't sure if they were showing it. After making us wait for 30 minutes while they asked the manager, our waitress reported they would NOT be showing the fight that night. Upset that I had brought a large group to the bar and sucked down their crappy food only to have been lied to TWICE, I asked to see the manager.

This is the best part. The wait staff and bouncers told me: 1) "He's not here." 2) "He's here but I can't find him." 3) "He's here in his office, but I'm not allowed to get him. " NOT ALLOWED TO GET HIM???

We waited for 30 MORE minutes to see the manger. Only after I refused to pay my bill did the manager come out from hiding in his office. I explained my situation. He said, "Look I don't have to do anything for you guys. I'll buy you a free drink but that's it."

This place ruined our evening. They lied to us. They served terrible food. And because the manager tried to hide instead of addressing the problem, we didn't even have a chance to run to another bar and catch the fight. Then he gave us attitude and refused to make it right.

Truly pathetic management and customer services. If your customer has a problem, you get your butt downstairs and address it!

I love this place. My friends and I go there 2 or 3 times a week. Tuesdays we go for $2 Cuervos and $2 Coronas. We go for the 20 cent wings and cheap beer on Sun, Mon and Wednesday. Hanging on the couches to watch the games on all the big screens is better than at home. We eat, drink and someone else cleans up. Sometimes I just go there to eat and drink and it's never expensive and the portions are large. And the music is great on the weekends. I went to a lot of places before I found this one and now I won?t go anywhere else.

We've been to 1849 several times, and even though the price is right (20 cent wings and 3 dollar Magic Hats during happy hour) each time we've left having had a less than desirable time, but we've gone back because we thought the place has a lot of potential. After this last time, we won't be back anytime soon. Our waitress seemed annoyed when we ordered the wings and beer. WHAT!? That special gets the people who are paying your rent in the door and this is your job sweetheart, so if you can't smile while you refill my beer, then maybe you're in the wrong industry. I get it that the cheap prices don't lend themselves to large bills and therefore large tips, but if you weren't so miserable, I might have considered leaving more than the 20% that's included in the bill. The bathrooms are tiny and dirty and the hand dryer doesn't really work. The couches in the front look very comfortable, but if you're not part of a large party, you can't sit there, even if the place is empty. How about you put a sign on the table that says "Table Reserved for Party of 5 or More" or something. This isn't brain surgery people. Again, it's a good deal, but maybe it's worth it to spend a few extra bucks elsewhere.

That special gets the people who are paying your rent in the door and this is your job sweetheart, so if you can't smile while you refill my beer, then maybe you're in the wrong industry. I get it that the cheap prices don't lend themselves to large bills and therefore large tips, but if you weren't so miserable, I might have considered leaving more than the 20% that's included in the bill. The bathrooms are tiny and dirty and the hand dryer doesn't really work. The couches in the front look very comfortable, but if you're not part of a large party, you can't sit there, even if the place is empty. How about you put a sign on the table that says "Table Reserved for Party of 5 or More" or something. This isn't brain surgery people. Again, it's a good deal, but maybe it's worth it to spend a few extra bucks elsewhere.

Pros: Value

Cons: Miserable servers, dirty bathrooms

Brought in 14 people for my birthday celebration. The service was beyond poor. No refills for a long time. Had other people's drinks on our tab. Also, they did not comp us for the 1/2 price drink special. After asking the waitress to correct it twice we left in frustration. Then we checked our bank account only for the waitress to add in an extra $50 gratuity on top of the 15% already added in. After numerous phone calls and no help, we threatened to notify our bank of the fraudelent charges it took a few days for them to finally remove it. NO apologies, nothing. WORST SERVICE, ATTITUDE AND SCAM PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN TO! WILL NEVER GO AGAIN!

Pros: will charge extra money to your credit card

Cons: shady staff and "manager"

.

I tried to go there to celebrate my birthday with friends and all of us are over 21. We all get in except for my African-American friend who's ID expired but clearly shows his name, birth date and picture. He even had SS Card and other forms ID with the same name/birthdate/ pic. Bouncer doesn't let him in. His reason in his words: "All African and Chinese people look young so I can't let you in."
Tried to get the manager to assist us in this situation but just gave us lip service. I was real high on this place like CFC stock but now I am selling to protect myself. Caveat Emptor.

Pros: Good music/bartender combination

Cons: Finnicky entrance rules, poor customer service

.

This place is terribly retarded!!! I've never seen a bar with so many rules before. They act like they are a club or lounge when it's really a run down looking bar. Reason for this is because there were several times when we went and were denied going in. First time one of my buddy had a baseball cap on and they denied access. The second time we had leftovers in a box and were turned away. Last and finally we had a buddy with boots on and the bouncer pointed at a sign saying no caps, boots, etc. and was denied access again but then a customer came out for a smoke break with a baseball cap on.

Everytime my friends and I go to this bar, there's always something. One weekend we were there, the bouncer wouldn't let us in because we had boots on. While we saw another guy wearing a hat, which the notice at the door said no hats. Do they pick certain customers and turn away others?! And plus, that nite it was raining! Another time, when my two friends ate there, the waitress complained they didn't tip enough. But of course, she was no where to be found when they needed service. This bar is overrated, find another one!

I have read some of these posts and I wonder what the people writing these reviews are like to deal with. Maybe you need to look at the area your in. I will admit that the service can be short but I think its cause the specials make it a bit crazy. I mean I have been there and waited for my wings when they have the all night special and it can take a long time. I have complained about the time of my wings and the bartender simply apolagized and explained that everyone in the place is ordering them and there are only so many fryers. She was nice and it seemed like a reasonable explaination. Maybe I am just an easy customer. It can get crtazy in there. Seems to me if you want amazing service then you need to pay full price and then some for it..especially in NYC. I always have a great time with my friends when I go. I recommend it!! I will absolutely keep going!

Just how bad is this place? We ordered seven plates of food and 15-20 drinks and they still refused to serve us water with our food. After waiting about an hour to speak to a manager about the policy, the waitress finally brought one glass of water. We still wanted to speak to the manager, but Marium was "nowhere to be found" from 9pm til 11:30pm "because its a slow night," the waitress said.

Funny, because we were told the "no water" policy was specifically to prevent the bar from being crowded with people who weren't spending money. But the bar wasn't crowded and we were spending money and they wouldn't give us water. W-a-t-e-r, water.

The waitress finally had the bouncer get Marium on the walkie-talkie and he promised he was on his way back to bar. I'm sure you can guess whether he showed up.

I always wondered why more people didn't turn up for happy hour at 1849. Now I know.

Pros: all the better places nearby

Cons: endless

The deals at this place certainly look appealing, but it's a nightmare once you step inside. We were treated abysmally by every staff member we encountered -- from the bouncer who dismissively said "go on in" and then yelled at us to come back and show him our IDs, to the waitress who told us we were not allowed to sit down unless we were eating in the rudest manner possible. When we decided to get appetizers in order to sit, we were told "seats are for DINING" with utter contempt (and the special that night was 5-cent draft with an appetizer!). I couldn't believe this place -- I guess to get an appetizer you have to stand up and eat it. Coupled with other comments on here that state 20% tipping is mandatory, I guess 1849 absolutely does not care about customer service. HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED.

Love the happy hour specials everyday with 20 cent wings (nice and crispy they RULE), half priced drafts, half priced well drinks, $2 coronas. Some manager type guy was very rude to me and our friends when we had an issue about the staff and service. Atmosphere is fun and inviting and I love the website, looks cool !!!!
I would go back and will be to check on some of the events there.

food and ambiance is fine... service a bit slow... but what is quite appalling was the outrageous service charge that they added onto our bill when we were just a party for 3 people... where do they get off???

Okay, I know some reviews have knocked this place; two words: YOU'RE NUTS! I have never been disappointed hitting this spot. Def an after hours spot. Great DJ, good drinks and surprisingly, dare I say, good Tex-Mex-ish food. You can be loud, lewd and basically have a great time! Cons: They won't let you dance on the tables. (What's up with that?!) I love this place and so has everyone I've brought with me.

The only thing this place has going is the location, and that is the only reason we happened to go in. Once inside, the overblown prices and extraordinarily rude service ensured that we will never go back. None of the staff bothered to say anything to us upon arrival, around 9 p.m.. After getting seriously expensive (even for NYC) drinks from the bartender (once she showed up), we sat down near the front door in a couple of chairs near some other people. It was not a crowded night. 20 minutes later, some random waitress (no waitstaff had appeared in this area unitl this point) forced menus onto our table and told us that we were seated in a "service only area" and would have to order food to continue to sit there. We had no desire to order the pedestrian food offerings at this place - with a 20% automatic tip according to the menu! - so we downed the rest of our drinks and decided to use the downstairs bathrooms before leaving. I (male) finished before my friend (female) and was waiting for her outside of the restrooms, when some sort of toilet commander told me to go upstairs - saying I was not allowed to stand where I was (even though there was a payphone and an ATM right there). My explanation of waiting for my friend was apparently not valid, and General Flush, using a pretend shoulder walkie-talkie device (like cops have) threatened to have me removed if I did not go immediately upstairs. At this point my friend emerged from the (according to her) dirty smelly bathroom and we gladly left this overpriced, self-important dive bar vowing never to darken its doorstep again. There are much better places in the area to go - choose wisely and go somewhere else where they might actually appreciate your business.

I've been to 1849 a few times for happy hour and though I enjoy the decor and the yummy hot wing deals and cheap beer, I have never had a good experience with the staff. They are almost always rude and give attitude, and if you get table service you're automatically charged a 20% tip (regardless of party size). Against my better judgement, I went again and was seated next to the waiters' register area. Not only did my boyfriend and I hear the waiters loudly complaining about and mocking their customers, but we actually witnessed the severely grumpy looking waitress (Donna) shove her busboy and yell at him "You never do anything how I want it!"

My wife and 4 month old in a stroller show up for a happy hour with friends around 5:30. It is 10 degrees out so being outside was not a good idea for anyone. A group of our friends had already arrived at 1849 so we had a table and plenty of room for us and our collapsible stroller. We open the door and this bouncer says "you can't come in here with THAT!" Then he says "and shut the door, it is cold out." If he had said I am sorry but we can't allow a stroller in here I would have understood but to treat us like we are brain damaged for bringing a stroller into a bar in the early evening is unacceptable. I suggest we all never go to this bar again just because of the horrible bouncer (and why do they even need a bouncer, it is a DIVE bar!)

No really it is. Take my friday night for example. Couldnt get into 1849 because I am guy, do we not have a right to go out in this city anymore, clearly we dont, you cant get into any of the clubs and increasing the lower standard bars as well. Tthe clubs work like that to make their money out of guys doing bottles but places like 1849 and Fat Black cant afford to be like that there a little place doing 5 buck beers and no cover charge to get in. I think the female's favourite no guys policy is going too far now. A guy wont be able to go out in new york in 5 years time. I have made the decision as a direct result of my treatment at 1849 to leave the city at Christmas. I just hope 1849 dies before I go and I get to watch them shut the place up.

I am leaving new york, leave to the amazon girls they clearly run this city's nightlife scene, what was the best city in the world is now dead and buried RIP new york

My friends and I had an awesome time when we weren't talking about how awful the staff is (excluding the great bartenders). They basically had a bouncer in the women's bathroom who yelled pounded on the door every two minutes because people were waiting in line to use one working stall. Then my boyfriend came to meet us at 3am when we had a table and the INCREDIBLY rude bouncer at the door told him they were closed and that he couldn't come in. He wouldn't listen to ANYTHING anyone had to say and I ended up having to leave my friends since he couldn't get in. I found out the next day that the bar continued serving until 4am, so I don't know what the bouncer was talking about. I hope he gets by in life thinking he's a big man not letting paying customers into a bar or keeping them there

By day and early evening this is a great sports bar with good food (the wings are some of the best if you like 'em crusty like I do), great drink specials, and lots of sports on lots of Plasma TVs. By night it turns into a college hook-up hangout with a $5 cover and dance music. Football Sundays are packed due to 20 cent wings and $2 beers (Note: if you just drink water and watch the games they will charge you $2 for the water; loiterers beware). One of my favorite places to hang out at in the village, but you have to get there before the crowds do in order to snag a comfy couch spot.

This is a very chill scene yet not too West Village-ey. Awesome Wings...Awesome. The service isn't amazing, but still good...The drink specials are great. The top of the bar with the pool table is nice, but a bad place for a pool table. It gets too crowded there.

if your looking for a local spot in the village that offers great drink sepcials and a lot of sports then this is your place. They have a TON of plasma screens all around the bar, right next to the fake western theme accents. They have great buffallo wings and really good specials when it comes to dinner / drink combos. If your on bleeker st, this is the place to stop by.

I went on Tuesday night- $2 Coronas and $2 Cuervo shots. Who can beat that? The service was very good. (I didn't even realize my beer was empty and teh server had already asked if I wanted another!) The red velvet couches are divine and the atmosphere was awesome. Menu was a bit overpriced for bar food- $8.95 for 7-8 buffalo wings- even though they were really good.

This is a GREAT place but the service is TERRIBLE in the dining room!! Try to stay at the bar and go on a weeknight before 8pm to take advantage of great happy hour specials. The hostess is great and the girl bartender Chris is a hoot-loud and obnoxious.
If you are a sports fan they have tons of TVs and if you are a single girl, this place is always packed with men.

This is my Thursday after work hangout. Loni at the front is very sweet but don't smoke near her. Chris at the bar is hysterical..be careful, she bites! Cheap drinks and great deals with food, like 10 cent wings. Music, no dancing, pool table upstairs and TV screens everywhere for the sports addicted. If you want to socialize, stay at the bar, its more fun!

The service was so awful - the manager insulted myself and my friends for no reason, the waitress who we HAD to use (we weren't supposed to go to the bar ourselves) was never around. Overcrowded and rude. At some random point in the night they started charging a cover which was ridiculous. Overall, it was a really bad place and I would not recommend it.

Pros: Somewhat inexpensive

Cons: Bad service, Overcrowded, Cover to get in

I come as often as I can, they have great happy hour specials everyday (ex. 20 cent wings, half priced drafts, half priced well drinks, $2 coronas, $2 tequila shots). They have nice red plush seats, decent music selection (don't expect to come here to dance), and its usually full but never packed. Good spot to get some cheap food and drinks, waitresses are nice but there are too few of them.

The several times I have been there, it has been almost empty, but they have a great beer selection and they were really cheap ($2 special for draughts). They have a pool table upstairs and a nice basement room for more intimate get-togethers. There are flat screen tv's everywhere, but they need to play more than the matrix on them. Cheesy Western decor is okay, but if you are going for the value, this place is way better than its other Bleeker neighbors.
