This bar is just around the corner for me. It is usually frequented by local dwellers. They don't have tourists or crazy Bridge & Tunnel crowd here. On the contrary, most patrons are people who live near by and just want to grab a drink with their friends.

If you are looking for a hangout spot with your friends, with no intention to bump into tourists, trendy people or crazy college kids, this is just the place for you.

Pros: great bartenders

Cons: none at all

.

If you are looking to stand around, have a few drinks, chat with a few people, and play some darts, then this is the spot for you. It's a chill atmosphere--- kind of boring, but it gives you a sense of a college environment. If you are looking for a place to get down and dance, well this would not be your spot. Must say, they have the greatest "Skittles Shots" there....

I love this bar. I found it randomly when I was with my friends after he got out of school. The place is great, true it does get a little crowded on the weekends, but I have never found the seating situation to be a problem. The bartenders are great, and the drinks are reasonably priced. I haven't been for Happy Hour yet, but I heard they have great deals. If you want a fun bar in the East Village I suggest this place.

Pros: Great Location, Friendly Bartenders

Cons: Sometimes It Can Get Crowded

Stopped by on a Sunday Late Afternoon for a drink. It's not a very big place with low ceilings and two tv's located in each corner of the bar and an electronic dart board. They have numerous happy hour specials advertised, but the prices didn't seem to be much lower than normal. A bottle of Coors Light was $4.00 and I got a buyback on my 4th round. Nice laidback place to stop in for a drink.

Cheap drinks, great specials. This place is never overcrowded and all the bartenders are friendly and fantastic. I started coming for the electronic dart board in the back. Some people would never think to play on an electronic board but this one is really good and I've had so many fun games there. This is a great nieghborhood and attracts a good, fun clientele.

Slainte! Traditional Irish toast; translation
To Your Health.

Thirsty Scholar. Traditional Irish Pub of impeccable service and quality; translates into good times.

Frequented this bar enough to know of its reasonable happy hour, its buffet of simple yet worthy bar food, the pleasant assortment of music and its dart board set up in back for those aficionados however, the most important and endearing quality behind this quaint little establishment is by far its invaluable staff of barkeeps who remember if not your name, at least your drink each and every time you return. Crowd is a comfortably diverse group all with one common goal of kicking back and enjoying a few amongst friends. Music and ambiance is cool and alive yet controlled enough to carry a conversation. Drop in for a few, Trish, Pete and Decs will be waiting to greet you with warm hearts and high spirits.

Pros: best bartenders, no chintzy drinks, $ good value

.

The neighborhood seemed to go out of favor for a while but it seems to be back in full force. This place has great music, service, hearty drinks, and a buffet that has gone above the ordinary(i.e.-fetticini carbonara), but the draw in this place is the people who come here, the crowd is diverse, interesting, and just plain fun!!!

I've been going to the Thirsty Scholar regularly for the past few months. I've gotten to know everyone who works there as well as many of the other regulars. I don't know of a better group of people anywhere in the city.

where do i begin? the appropriate name (being students) caught our attention, but we had no idea what we were getting into. this is hands down my favorite bar in manhattan. incredible music, unbeatable drinks (but beware...they have quite the heavy hand here), extremely friendly bartenders and bouncers. good crowds, young and old, always. this place is highly recommended any day of the week, although the weekend (thursday through sunday night) is the most fun.

Cons: there are NO cons

Went into this quaint lounge for a game of darts with some friends on a Tues. night. There was no bartender for 10 minutes, and then this hulk of anger came through the door. Surly and bothered, we had to follow her to get a drink, which she acted as though hurt her.......
HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!!

This place is great. Hang out have a few drink, play some darts, and chill with the coolest bartender in NYC (LOVE YA TRISH!). Also has a Vodka and Red Bull that can't be duplicated, YUM!
