It's cheap, smelly, and packed with youngins. In other words, its a college bar. Definitely not for someone looking to have a classy time or meet anyone classy, but great if you want to have a night that's easier on the funds and you're

This is the one bar that Albany University is missing. The prices are clearly for college students because they are rediculously affordable with yummy snacks to munch on also.

After a long week of studying there is no better place to go. The drinks are cheap; they have specials nearly every day of the week, and their wings are INSANE. During the world cup this year me and a bunch of my friends went and got

I was there on 8/29/10 and a bouncer grabbed me and started choking me for missing a urinal so I bit him and then after 5 bouncers surrounded me and dragged me outside they put me on the cement and broke my front teeth and had me arrested for assault. I recommend not ever going to this bar. This is a true story! If you'd like to come to my court date and show support agaist over zealous ex-cop bouncers and corrupted police offices Please E-mail me at buysell201@yahoo

Me and a group of my girlfriends all went to Off the Wagon last weekend, none of us are 21, it wasn't an issue. The drinks are so cheap!! Only thing is it's filled with ugly dudes, but just get drunk and go somewhere else!

All right, first off if you dont notice by walking up to the place that its a bar geared towards an insane amount of drinking then maybe youre the idiot. Go somewhere else! The name of the game here is get as drunk as possible and watch sports..SIMPLE! I've been coming here for at least 10 years and it has always been great. Football is the best here. Be ready to see legions of Giants fans and Jets fans but dont be surprised when you see other teams being supported too, Eagles, Dolphins, Steelers, and yes even my team the Broncos.

Every time i come here I feel like I am in College again, with the beer pong tables and the cheap power hour drinks, it's really a great atmosphere.

I've always hated this bar, but when my best friend comes to town he forces me to come bc the women are fish in a barrel. Unfortunately, the staff really do think they are members of Barack Obama's security team, which makes being here "not fun." When I get here with my group of five people, including my gf, they split us up, allowing three of us to enter, and forcing my gf and I to stand outside in the cold. We stood outside for 15 minutes, waiting to get into this overcrowded, way noisy, bar full of 18 year old NYU ugly chicks with fake ID's. This bar has always sucked, but in recent years it has gotten worse (it seems to be intentionally geared to favor a socially inept crowd with its rude doormen and bartenders). Since the crowds are very large, there are myriad bouncers walking about with chips on their shoulders, just being generally mean and pushy with patrons. Even before you actually step foot in the bar--at the door--they try their hardest to put you in a bad mood. When I asked the doorman nicely if he could let me through with my gf so that we did not lose my out-of-town friends in a sea of people inside, he told me "I'm cutting it off here...If you don't like it you can go somewhere else." There was no reason why this guy could not let me stay with my party of friends. He did it simply bc he could. Even when I told him that I am a semi acquaintance with the owner(MB), he told me that he was going to make me stand in the cold longer for opening up my mouth. Then he told me to go ahead and call MB (his boss) and tell him that Alex (that was the doorman's name) is the "A-hole who made you stand in the cold with your girlfriend." The point here, really, is that I am sick of bouncers in NYC acting like NYC cops, or secret service members. And for the record, positive reviews written for this bar are obviously written by employees. Next time, I'm spitting down from the upper deck.

DO NOT COME TO THIS BAR! I put my card down to pay for drinks and when I went to close it out they told me that I had already signed and paid for the bill. I told them I did not have my card and never signed anything and the response was check your pockets. After informing them that I was not an idiot, didn?t have my card, and never signed anything, they caught on to the fact that they couldn?t take advantage of a drunk person and proceeded to kick me out. I cancelled my card that night, and my credit card company calls me Monday to report that there had been attempts to use it. These guys stole it and tried to convince me that I was crazy! The owners and bartenders are complete low-lifes, if you must come to this wretched bar be sure to pay in cash only.

I met my husband in Off The Wagon, so it will always have a place in my heart. It is your average joe sports bar with average bar greasy food. I don't expect much when I go there, other then hordes of frat boys watching baseball. For the price and the expectation, it isn't a bad place.

Came here twice...on a Monday night during fleet week (if it wasn't fleet week it would have been empty!) and on a Saturday night (it was packed!). The drinks are super cheap. Especially the pitchers. And they have beer pong!!!! (It's free, you just pay for the pitcher). It's like a frat party in the city. Crowd is mixed. I wish I could say there were less chicks but wit a fly bartender like the one who works Sat nights, I can't complain.

agreed that the guys at the door are on a huge power trip and will use any excuse to kick ppl out and get an ego rise. seriously - get a real job. there are so many bars in new york and NO reason to go here, pay for drinks, and be treated the way they treat you.

DO NOT GO TO OFF THE WAGON!!!!

This place is a complete washout. Very tasteless.

God forbid the bouncers see you and decide they don't like you!

F***ing bouncers should go get a real job.

The bouncers at OFF THE WAGON thought my boyfriend, who was standing by the restrooms waiting for me to come out, was sleeping (he was standing (waiting) with his eyes closed) SO THEY KICKED HIM OUT!!!!

After I confronted the big UGLY bouncer about kicking my bf out ,I went to stand near my BF at the corner, while he was on the phone with 911, b/c one of the bouncers decided to be tough and HURT him WITH A CLOSED FIST as they threw him out.

In a split second, the police was there! BUT NOT IN OUR DEFENSE! BUT IN THE BOUNCERS DEFENSE!!!!!!!

I still can't believe this happened!!!!!!!

WE WERE ARRESTED!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have sooooo many accusation against us, such as harassment and assault....ALL BS!!!!

So people STOP GOING TO OFF THE WAGON!!!!

GOD FORBID you have your eyes closed or even BLINK!!!!

BECAUSE OF OFF THE WAGON WE GOT ARRESTED AND ARE NOW AWAITING TRIAL!!!

By the way, we have filed complaints against the bar and the bouncers!

A West Village, 20-something beer-guzzler's staple, OTW is basically a frat-party with flat-screens, servers and a cash bar. Thursday HH is a raucous, good time. Staff is generally friendly and great with regulars. Rodney is a stellar bartender. You can find me at the downstairs pong table many Thursday nights.

I was bounced out of this place on a Sunday night before I had even set foot inside by an overly aggressive bouncer who came outside looking for trouble and left me with a black eye. This is not the first time I've heard of overly aggressive security at "Off the Wagon" as other reviews of the bar convey a similar experience. One thing is for sure-I will never go back.

Very crowded, very noisy, very looong lines for the bathroom and yet always a good time...however if you show up past midnight you might have to wait a while to get in. I recomend the upstairs bar. I had my 24th birthday up there and we all had an amazing time. I didn't rent it out, just got lucky. Keep in mind that the upstairs is often used for private parties. All around good time for us looking to revisit our college years.

Although I new many 30 somethings who love this bar, it still has a very college bar feel! If you like a more laid-back look to the city, OTW is your bar. Usually very crowded but so much fun with a group of friends.

I went with a few friends on Saturday night, after leaving the nearby Peculiar Pub. What a mistake that was! The place was crowded, and looked awful. They have tvs all over the wall, but I would have preferred a little style instead. The floors were disgusting as well, I don't think they clean them, ever. It kind of reminded me of those creepy apartment parties I sometimes found myself at freshman year. We made our way upstairs, where there was a little room by the balcony. We had a few beers, before somebody dropped a glass off the balcony. It knocked someone in the face and cut the guy near his eye I heard. The bouncers came up, and the person who dropped it said it was an accident, they were sorry, and would leave. The bouncers though, loving their authority a little too much, decided that they'd just kick everyone in the area out, regardless of whether or not they were involved or even knew the kid. Those with full beers unfortunately getting screwed twice, by being there in the first place and then losing money for nothing as well. This is a bar that I will gladly never visit again. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Decent classic rock and 80's music, but everything else pretty much stinks about this place. It's located in the heart of the Village, therefore you will run into many freaks and gay people at this place. It's also claustrophobic and very hard to get a drink on a Friday or Saturday night. Definitely not a fun place to be, considering you can hardly move upon entering this place. Drinks aren't cheap here either. Avoid village bars altogether is my advice. Stick with those real fun dives such has Doc Holidays, The Patriot, Yogi's, etc........

Stopped in to watch football yesterday and was amazed that the bartenders were just as good as the games. From the friendly bouncer to the great atmoshpere this place was GREAT!! I must say that Jess the bartender looked amazing with her red shoulder pads. She was friendly, quick, and just a pleasure to meet. She made the whole afternoon complete!! Will definitely be back and bringing more friends!!

The words "college bar" just about sum it up. This place is always packed with a young crowd. They have a different drink special just about every night of the week, so you'll have to check out their web page to see what's going on each night. Regular activities include watching one of their countless plasma screens (usually tuned to various sporting events), beer pong tournaments, and chugging beers from their funnels. I've never eaten the food there, but only because Mamoun's Falafel is on the same block, and that place rocks! This is a great place to go with a bunch of friends, and if for any reason you don't find it appealing, there are about 20 different bars/restaurants on the same street, so you really can't go wrong.

I went to Off the Wagon for my 21st this past Monday and it was a blast. Every Monday there are $3 pints and $7 pitchers. There are beer pong tables too! We told the bartender it was my birthday and he gave us 4 free shots. It's a very casual place with a young crowd and fun pop/hip-hop music.

This place is always one of my favorites down in the SoHo area of NYC. Going here for years. Always take out of towners to this bar if in the area. Great values and music always pumping. Great college atmosphere. Highly recommended you check it out at least once. You will not be disappointed.

I love the happy hour and no matter how busy it looks...it never takes a long time for a drink. The staff is cool and fun. I always feel welcomed, whether it be by the bartender, waitress, or the doormen. Everyone is super friendly and when I leave I don't feel like I've spent my whole weeks salary!

Happy hour thursday nights are rockin'. You can play pool or beer pong upstairs... reminds you back of your college days. Where else can you play bei-rut! Men in suits with their shirts rolled up trying to score... Cheap beer, cheap shots and drinks. The bartneders and doormen/bouncers are always friendly as well and remember you, which is a great reason for you to keep coming back. No dancing. Friendly people, however... and draws in pretty regular crowds... I know groups that have all met each other at the bar and have kept coming back almost every week for years. crazy.

Out of all the bars in NYC, this one has drink specials EVERY day which is necessary when you're trying not to spend your whole paycheck on a night of booze. The half price 4 hour happy hour is unbelievable and you can't beat the pitcher & hot wings specials on the weekend days! I love the 2 story space & how I can look over the balcony & people watch. Another cool thing about this place is the DJ plays every genre of music. The staff is fun & attentive & I'm never left waiting long for a beverage.

Pros: drink specials, lots of games, good music

Cons: lines to bathroom

Great place. Reminiscent of my college bar. Lots of drink specials and a great value.

OTW is like heaven...if you don't mind walking out wasted and cursing that ever elusive Jack Daniels. This place is your above average 20-30 something bar with a penchant of bringing people from all walks of life together. There's half-price happy hour Mon-Fri from 6p 8p (gin and tonic$2.25); drink specials ALL NIGHT LONG; buffalo wings (your choice of hotness); sliders (think mini cheeseburgers NOT White Castle); DJ; jukebox; foosball; darts; pool table; and beer pong. If thats not enough for ya there are plenty hotties and about 6 or 7 TVs for sports. But who goes to a bar to watch TV? Oops, sorry. GO TEAM!!!
OTW is a fun place to hang out or hook up. Im not saying that people are easy here, they are just more relaxed because the staff is friendly and so are the regulars. If you dont have proper ID though, you could be Venus come down from Olympus and still you would never get past the judicious bouncers. Come to OTW and say hi to us on a Thursday night. Me and my friends are usually planted neatly between the beer pong and pool tables.

PROS: Great fun. Great people. Great bartenders. Good times. Good Times.
CONS: One drunken night my bag and coat were stolen.

If you are in a partying mood on the weekend and don't want to deal with those clubheads and expensive liquors, Off the Wagon is the spot for Fridays and Saturday nights after 10p. They have great Dj's from Wed - Sat. If during the week you want to go out and drink and not spend that much money you definately need to check out the nightly specials Monday thru Thursday. Don't forget the happy hour for the after work crowd which is 4 hours long, 4p-8p Mon - Fri.

This place has happy hour even on Friday but the bar can get to be unbearably crowded! Don't bother trying to get a beer at the bar, just wait for the waitress to come around. It is worth the extra tip you SHOULD give her.
The bar food is great and really hits the spot after pounding beers at the bar.

now i've been a regular at the wagon for almost 4-5 years now.. yes its not the most shi shi or upper class joint in town, and for those looking for that.. dont even bother rating this place... because the neon sign will tell you one thing... VALUE. always a good crowd.. the upstairs bar is a nice retreat on the packed days its open.. there's a great selection of beed and specials everyday.

if you're out to drink with the boys and leaving the chicks at home.. this place is the best.

Wandered into Off the Wagon randomly one Sunday afternoon to appease a friend's need to watch his beloved Packers lose another one. Couldn't have found a better place! Cheap pitchers of good beer ($10 Bass pitcher, where else in the city??), every game being played showing on at least one TV, and packed with genial fans of every team in the NFL. Food was only okay, not great, and it was literally standing room only, but a good time (and then some) was being had by all. Define college bar atmosphere, though.
