I've never wanted to get someone fired. Ever. Until now. I'm actively trying to find the owners of Blue and Gold so they know that whatever harpy was working Tuesday, Feb. 14th 2012 is hurting their business. Myself and several other

The female bartender is the rudest person I've encountered in New York...and I've lived here for 11 years. Don't go here.

Ive lived in NYC for 8 years with 5 years as an NYU student and was not aware of this place until last weekend! The reviews about this place are totally accurate. It is small, smelly, and very cramped (at least it was on a Friday night).

I felt strongly enough about this dump to take time to write a review, if that says anything. The chunky female bartender with tattooed arms does not deserve any type of employment with such a foul attitude. I was told to "get out of her

If you don't think paying premium price for a cocktail is justifiable, this place is going to be your best friend. Blue and Gold is not a fancy lounge and there is no door policy. Instead, what it has is $3 cocktails and beers and $5 high

Super cheap drinks but unfortunately overcrowded and lacking any admirable decor. Go here only to get drunk cheap. Better bet? Get some friends and buy a bottle. That way, it's even cheaper.

I like this place, but I've always gotten so drunk there that I forget the actual experience, other than that the seats always seem one big person away from collapsing completely.

Been to this hole in the wall many times when breezing through NYC on weekends home from college in Ct. haven't been there for a while, but I remember a rockin' jukebox, very cheap beer, a friendly (if old school) staff, and just lots of laughs with friends.

Not your cleanest joint but what do you expect when you get a PBR and shot of Beam for 5 bucks! Staff is great! Bartenders know how to run a bar and keep it exciting. You can come hang out and play pool, just one table or ask for a few

Pros: Staff

Cheap beverages. Knowledgable barstaff. Great jukebox. Pool Table, they even have board gamese.g. connect four, scrabble. Best time to go there is Tuesdays thru Thursdays. Bathrooms are go at your own risk. Great drink selection.

I've been going to Blue and Gold since Verchovynya (aka Bar 81) next door closed around 2002. Not as cool, but certainly cheap and a great place to start the night. Service is adequate, but I usually go when it's empty. Very simple

Overall, good bar, very cheap, good music, and a laid-back vibe...\r
until you have to deal with the service. A lot of reviews have mentioned how hard the weekend guy is to get a hold of, but I wouldn't recommend this place for weeknights

I'm not sure what the heck altj/whateverhisnameis is talking about. Anyone who manages a bar in the East Village knows how hard it is to keep the prices down and B&G has been doing it for years. Also-what true East Village bar has a "GM"

Okay so I'm a GM at a bar in the village, so what big deal, right? But that does mean I understand the business from a behind the scenes perspective and I'm telling you this: the cheap shots, the cute little "happy meal" drink combos,

Pros: Seriously, it can be cheap...nice juke...board games at the bar and boothes

Cons: HORRIBLE, non-existent service, ZERO buybacks, you'll feel like a number...

I remember this place from back in the day and although the setup has changed, it is still a friendly and totally unpretentious neighborhood bar. With an absolutely godlike blond, blue eyed barkeep. Mmmmmm. Relaxing booth seats, relatively

Pros: not crowded, inexpensive, pool table

Cons: can't see outside

.

A good hangout on weeknights . No, it's not clean - it's dive bar !! Drinks are cheap, & the buybacks are generous as well . The pool table has seen better days if you're a competitive player (like me). Otherwise, a solid old school dive

Pros: Cheap drinks, divey

Cons: weekend crowd

This East Village hole-in-the-wall is famous for cheap liquor drinks, with shots across the board for about three dollars. The tiny interior gets jam-packed on weekend nights, with college kids, hipsters and yuppies crowding the small bar and booths. The best time to go? In the afternoon, when the place is empty and you can enjoy a game of pool and some good tunes on the jukebox.

PROS: Cheap drinks, pool, good jukebox
CONS: Crowded, noisy, small draft selection

I hate this place! Yes... Yes.. the drinks are cheap, but they are the smallest I have ever seen. At any rate, who cares? The service is appaling. The guy behind the bar was rude and beyond obnoxious. This place felt like combat camp

Pros: Cheap, Pitchers

Who cares! For $3 drinks who cares how divey a place is! I've been to many other dirt bars that charge more for a drink. Blue and Gold is the place to go to load up on drinks for cheap. The atmosphere is not bad, it attracts a fairly young

Oh man. I haven't had that bad of a time in a bar in a while. There were so many knuckleheads there it distracted from some fairly cute girls. Anyhow, just reminded me way to much of the frat bars back in California. It is nice to see a

i love this bar. the drinks were cheap, the staff was friendly, and the crowd was laid-back. my friends and i went to a few other places that night and all i could say as we walked to each one was "why don't we just go back to blue & gold?"
