This place is terrible. It tries to be coyote ugly. And it's just Ugly. After having a couple drinks at the Standard Hotel beer garden, we went to Hogs and Heiffers for a few beers. I had been there before and it's never good. But it was close, so we went. First off, it's a hole in the wall that charges a $10 cover. But, you suck it up when they say "we have $2 beers and $3 shots." So a group of 10 people, 5 girls, 5 guys go in for a few drinks. We figured we can do it up for a friend's birthday and be more casual than everything else in the MP district. Except that when I try to order 10 beers for the group, I literally get told by the girl (I won't insult other bartenders by calling her one,) behind the bar that she wouldn't serve me unless I ordered shots. Seriously? I'll drink on my own terms. Thanks. Seriously, who gets refused for ordering 10 beers?
After walking away to go let the group know, this animal gets up on the bar with her megaphone and tells us that she doesn't get "half naked" to serve $2 beers. Apparently, she does. And we'd all prefer if she was less naked. She wasn't nice, and she wasn't pretty. If you have issues with your bars drink specials, take it up with your manager. Anyway, after calling the entire group some choice words, we retaliated and got kicked out. Well worth it. That place sucked and we took 1/3 of the bar with us. I'd say that she was a horrible bartender, but bartenders serve drinks. They don't bitch at a customer about to order 10 beers to get the night going about how little they make. If i was looking for a crazed woman yelling at me about being half naked, I'd walk around Penn Station a little more. She missed out on a lot of money, and a lot of drinks by 10 people ready to have some fun.

If this place is still open this time next year I will be surprised. Hogs and Heifers...the name is fitting b/c that is exactly who serves you. I come with 3 friends who are from out of town. I want to show them a good time. We have been here before and have had a good experience. I hand the bartender a $20 and ask for a beer and a glass of water for my friend. Bill was $5 and I gave her a $2 tip. This is the first time I had a bar back complain about a tip. She told me I was cheap b/c she served me a free glass of water and a beer w/ a $2 tip. Her shear attitude left me speechless.
After I told her she was crazy I left to go play pool with one of my buddies. Then she starts heckling me with a blow horn. Telling the whole bar that I was cheap. I walked up to her at the bar and said she was clueless b/c were in the middle of the worst recession since the great depression. She said "I don't care". I said "Thats exactly your problem, you don??t care.? She just looked blankly and stared. With that attitude I??m surprised she still has a job serving drinks.
She then said if I didn't like it to get out. I wanted to finish my beer first. However, the bouncer told me I had to leave. I asked him why? What did I do wrong? I paid for my beer, unlike most of the people serving drinks. He then said "We can do this the easy way or the hard way." I started to say I wanted to finish my beer and the other bouncer grabbed my neck and literally threw me out the side door. My buddies were disappointed by our short stay but followed me out as a good friend should.
For a bar that prides itself on it's working class roots it's a shame the bartenders have become so spoiled by the weekend warrior yuppies that now overrun the place. They have lost site of what??s important. The customer. And if you treat the customer like a piece of garbage they are not going to come back. Doing a little research from other patrons?? experiences this place really swindles its customers. For example, if you leave $15 change on the bar to pay for additional drinks that you want later, the bartenders take it claiming it was a tip. If you complain they say "sorry it's mixed up with other tips". If you don't like it the bouncers throw you out. That??s stealing.
The truth is Heifers is just another trendy bar whose best days are behind them. I would not recommend this bar to anyone. In fact, I will go out of my way to tell people how shallow of a place it really is. The group of bikers who used to call heifers home obviously agree. There wasn't anyone who remotely wore any leather. Mostly designer shirts and high heels. The meat packing district has been in transition for a while now with new restaurants and the highline. Hogs and Heifers will not survive the recession if it doesn't shape up. It doesn't help that the bartenders keep up drink for drink with the patrons. Judging by the comments of my fellow bloggers there are a lot of people who have had a similar disappointing experience.

Having gone to H&H about 8 times, I think I'm qualified to publish my opinion. Being a regular at Coyote Ugly, I enjoy dive bars of this sort. How could any guy not find the idea of hot, scantily-clad women dancing atop a bar in any way appealing? The majority of my visits here have been pleasant. It tends to get a bit boring during off-hours, but hey--doesn't every bar? In my experience, Friday afternoons have been the most fun. There are a couple of cool barmaids who have been real nice to me and are generous w/ the kickbacks, which is great considering I stick to buying $2 PBR's. However, unless you're someone w/ extreeeeeemely thick skin, do not come on Fri. and Sat. nights. First off, they charge a $10 cover at the door. Secondly, the barmaids do everything short of reaching across the bar and castrating all the male customers. Unless you're standing in the background, the girls will get on their bullhorns and chastise you to death!!! It doesn't matter if you're a nice guy (as I am). They will always find ways to deeply insult you. Maybe some guys get off on that sort of behavior. Call me a wimp, but I prefer being served by cute barmaids who are nice. I'm nice to them, so there's no reason why they shouldn't be nice in return. Unlike Coyote Ugly, the barmaids don't have set schedules, which is unfortunate. At least at C.U., I can avoid the shifts when the nasty barmaids work. Here, it's a tossup. Often times, the daytime barmaids are sweethearts, but occasionally the night girls will take over their shifts and...well...it's not pretty.

Pros: Some cool barmaids, cheap beers, oldies jukebox, decor.

Cons: Some nasty barmaids, horrible during peak hours.

I read all the reviews before going and initially choose NOT to go. But after going to another bar first and practically falling asleep my friends and I walked around and found hogs and heifers and we ended up having such a great time!! Bartenders are nice as long as you respect them and remember they are working and trying to make a buck like everyone else. Would def. Recommend it!

I actually enjoyed this place. It's a cool dive/biker type bar. Bras hanging on the wall and you can even get on the bar and dance, which my friend and i did. But, i was already kind of drunk, so that could be why we had such a good time. I just remember really liking the vibe of the place and having a blast.

Wow is this place bad. I really am not sure who would want to go here. For a wild drunken party bar, there sure aren't any girls besides the white trash looking bartenders in bikini tops (who are all flat btw, nice outfits) who try and play the part of the screaming btch "drink up, hurry up, and a shot of what" etc. The act is tiresome, there's no actual girls in the bar and you pay a cover to get into a bar that's tinier than a typical living room. Waste of time

Pros: I really can't think of one

I had never heard of the place until my girlfriend said she wanted to go there for her birthday.. She compared it to the movie coyote ugly..which I have seen.. Im a very open minded person, love to go out and go to different places and just have FUN with my girls..
The Bar is small, and unless you're on the bar dancing you can't move you're pretty much packed like a sardine in the place.. Lucky enough we got a corner of the bar by the door.. The only kind of music they play is Country. The bartenders are sooooo RUDE!!! I understand that its part of the act, but you cant' dance or move,and then you have these nasty lookin bartenders screamin at you and being real as@!!holes.. Well theres your mood, and there begins your night and expect to get into some kind of fight... I have been to so many different places night clubs bars and never EVER got into a fight ... I got into 3!!!!!!!!!!! first some old andy warhol look alike got up left the bar came back and told me to get the hell out of his chair!!!! He pretty much was tryin to pull it out from under me... the other was because of the bathroom line... and so a chic decided to pick one with me.. No reason.!!! Another the bartenders didn't like the fact that we sat at the corner of the bar and not orderin drinks from her every 5 mins.. Over the mega phone pretty much told us to get the F@!#ck away from her bar if we weren't ordering.. We were still drinkin...
I have never EVER had a bad experience on a night out, THis place was absolutely AWFUL!!!! Would never recommend this to anyone.....NOT AT ALL like Coyote Ugly.... No comparison....

Pros: NONE

Cons: NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO LIST

I wish I could use 1/2 a star. This bar is the worst. I understand that their bad attitudes are part of the act, but the 150 year old bouncers don't even know what's going on. According to Father Time, I was "starting" with everyone in the bar and was being threatened that I was going to be thrown out. He would have done me a favor by throwing me out, since I was with a group of people. For the record, I was not starting trouble. The one bathroom should be against the law and the ten bucks cover is totally not worth it. As I waited outside for my friends, because after I finally did make it into the bathroom, there was NO WAY I was buying a drink. They all came out one by one, not happy, annoyed and thought that the whole place was just a waste of time. Check it out for yourself if you don't believe me, but be prepared to pay ten dollars to wait on line for a bathroom and be harrassed by nasty bouncers who are old enough to be your grandfather.

Pros: You can smoke in the bathroom, since the bartenders do

Cons: Everything else about the place

Yes, this place has gone through some rough patches in the past. I've read reviews on here about the bouncers getting too rough on some patrons and the bartenders being rude. However, this place has gone through a serious over-haul from the past and they do seem to have a friendlier staff now and I even witnessed the bouncers giving directions to tourists passing by outside. This part of Manhattan is safer than it ever was before due to all of the new, upscale businesses taking over in the area. Hogs and Heiffers has become a little tamer than it used to be and has been attracting more of a mellow crowd than in its past. However, they still blast great hard core country music hits out of their jukebox which you can play 7 songs for only $2. The beer is cheap here and although it may look intimidating from the outside, it's really a great bar just like Coyote Ugly on the east side. This place is definitely not for the real sensative-types who can't take sarcasm lightly. The bartenders may come across rude at times, but it's just a gimmick and you can't take them seriously. There are also some bartenders here who are very friendly and sweet. The service is great and fast . Whenever a good song comes on, they have a lot of fun dancing on the bar. Considering all the horrible changes going on in the meatpacking district, I'm not sure how much longer this bar will remain standing, so enjoy it while it's still here! This place is lively, fun, and entertaining.

Pros: Cheap Drinks, Great Country Music Jukebox, Dive bar atmosphere, dancing on the bar, safer neightborhood than before, fun fun fun!!

Cons: Cover charge AFTER 10pm on weekends, some bartenders are a little rude/sarcastic, much tamer than it used to be

I really want to like Hogs. I really do. I love dive bars and country music. That combo is hard to come by in NYC. My problem, however, is that the bartenders are beyond annoying. They constantly stop the music to scream lame things over megaphones. Sure they get up on the bar and dance, but I am usually so annoyed and filled with anger that I can't enjoy it. Maybe I would be more easy going if I were drunk, but the drinks are VERY expensive for a dive bar and it is usually so crowded you can't get to the bar in the first place. Also, the last time I was there it was a cash only bar.

Overall, I can't be bothered with Hogs.

The last (and only) time I visited this place was about two years ago, and as I'm reading other reviews on Citysearch, I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who feels the way I do. It just boggles my mind how the bartenders who work in this place can get away with treating customers the way they do. I was standing at the bar next to two quarters that SOMEONE ELSE had left as a tip for a drink, and the classless excuse for a bartender picked it up, looked at me, and yelled, "Fifty cents? You call that a f*cking tip?" and she THREW it at me!! Granted, this did happen two years ago and I have no idea if this woman still works there, but I get the feeling that all the women who work there have this attitude. I only recently started using Citysearch regularly, and this incident stood out in my mind as the worst bar experience I've ever had in this city, so I felt it was worth mentioning. In a city with so many bars with such polite and attentive bar staff, I can't believe that anyone would continue to go here, let alone pay a cover charge and stand on line outside. Maybe I missed something, but to me, a fun bar experience doesn't involve verbal abuse (especially for something I didn't even do). To anyone who considers himself or herself an adult, I would say avoid this place at all costs.

I went here for a bachelorette party last night and the waitresses were among the most grotesque, vile human beings I have ever encountered at a NYC bar. One waitress sported an unflattering white bikini top, really low-riding jeans, and big love handles. She repeatedly barked into a megaphone and then picked a fight with me for checking my cell phone in the bar! She said, "F*&^ your boyfriend, F*&^ your family, and get off your F*&^ing cell phone. I should kick you out of here." I am sorry, but she does not know my family situation (which is why I checked the phone), and, if she did, she may not have been so rude. Don't come here unless you hate yourself and the people you are with! It is torture!

It is filled with guys waiting for girls to dance on the bar, the only people on the bar were the trashy waitresses who scream into a magaphone. This place is definitely not worth the entry fee of $10.00.

Though many actors become victims of success, so too do bars. Such is the case with Hogs & Heifers. Not so long ago this was one of those wonderful dive bars, with cheap beers, entertaining women and dudes that had more art work on their bodies than the Moma has on it's walls! Sadly since the Coyote Ugly movie this bar seems to have got a whiff of the great American dollar.

Now, arrive around the midnight hour and you get to wait in line for 15 minutes (which can prove more entertaining than actually being in the bar). PAY to get into a DIVE bar! And then drink in a bar that is reminiscent of a bunch of geeks waiting around for the Y2K problem that never was.

I'm pretty sure that women used to dance on the bar here but you wouldn't know it these days. And forget asking them to do something entertaining to your buddy that's about to get married. If you pay enough, they'll give him a shot, supposedly. Big whop de-di! They do that for free in other bars of this ilk. And I say supposedly, because we got so fed up with this place we went elsewhere before I found out what kind of shot they'd give him.

Save your money and go to Red Rock West instead. Way more entertaining.

Now, arrive around the midnight hour and you get to wait in line for 15 minutes (which can prove more entertaining than actually being in the bar). PAY to get into a DIVE bar! And then drink in a bar that is reminiscent of a bunch of geeks waiting around for the Y2K problem that never was.

I'm pretty sure that women used to dance on the bar here but you wouldn't know it these days. And forget asking them to do something entertaining to your buddy that's about to get married. If you pay enough, they'll give him a shot, supposedly. Big whop de-di! They do that for free in other bars of this ilk. And I say supposedly, because we got so fed up with this place we went elsewhere before I found out what kind of shot they'd give him.

Save your money and go to Red Rock West instead. Way more entertaining.

We were just there this past Friday Night - We paid our cover and I glanced down to check that I recived the right change - a $10 bill - and shoved it in my pocket. It was dark so I didn't notice until I got home that it was completely fake (white like monopoly money and slightly smaller then real money). It's only $10 - but it's not right and people should know that they are dirtbags for even doing that! - Don't be a victim.

DON'T GO THERE...my drinks were spiked first time I went there, and second time (thinking i was safe because i was with friends), my friend's husband got his face bashed in by the "manager" and 2 bouncers for no reason other than the manager felt like baiting a fight after he came out of the LADIES ROOM...good thing we girls could pull those losers off of our friend...didn't take much and clearly the cops we called were paid off cause they wouldn't let us press charges...believe me I've worked in and bars most of my life, i've never seen anything like it! This place should be shut down, it is dangerous...if you want your night in NYC ruined go there!

Went to the city to celebrate my birthday and took a tip from my uncle to go to the Washington St. location. Actually one of the best times I have ever had drinking. My best friend and I drank all night, made fun of people with the bartenders and made some great friends. The staff is the best, genuinely nice people. Great selection of drinks, and even better atmosphere. Don't go if you are a biddy, an a$$hole, or a bad tipper. Instead of worrying about a bar to go to, fix your life.
H&H is the best we found in NYC and probably the best anywhere. If you don't have a great time there, give up on life. Check it out after midnight and tell Mark and Father John that the girls from Ithaca say hi!

We came here to have a coupe drinks before heading into Lotus. It's not exactly posh but it had it's own rustic charm. Good place to chill and chat before heading into the noisy clubs. Gotta love the "realness" of the bartenders and inhabitants. All in all, not a bad place. Hey , where else in Meatpacking are you going to find cheaper alcohol?

If you like being insulted and then buying shots for the rude bartenders who just insulted you then, hey, you'll love this place. I get the whole "bad-attitude" theme but the genuine abuse the pushy bartenders dole out to the patrons is way over the top. Skip this dump and go to a bar where your business is actually welcomed!

Only go if you like a good time, and you want to get tanked on beer and shots. I absoultly love this place. The barmaid was lovely, loads of free shots and abuse from the loud speaker! and it was only 3pm!
its alot of fun but dont go if you dont have a sense of humour, want a quiet drink, or if your overly sensitive.
Go with your mates, hang up your bra, and dance on the bar....

If you really want to make the bartender angry--order a Pabst. That really sets her off. "And what shot?!" she'll demand.
Well hey, if you dont want people buying Pabst, then dont put it on your menu. But then i guess it wouldnt be considered the stereotypical southern bar if you didnt have Pabst. And that's what this place is: A stereotype to lure dopey tourists who dont know where to go in the city. All you end up getting is your money wasted, and a couple ego jabs from women that arent even cute and not very top heavy to boot. I'm a guy and I look better in a bikini top...and my beer belly isnt as large as theirs!

The title describes this bar perfectly. Who in their right mind would want to part with hard earned cash in a bar whos "gimmick" is verbally abusing customers. If you're some sort of masochist then hurry along to Hogs and Heifers. Otherwise, stay as far away as possible! VILE VILE VILE!!

Often immitated, never duplicated. There are a lot of similar bars in the city but this one is the Yankees of red-neck/biker joints. The barmaids drink like Marines and rip you a new one if you rub them the wrong way. The women on the bar really let go. There are over 6,000 bras on the back of the bar that have been taken off from everyone from movie stars to kindergarten teachers. It is a great place to experience a night you'll never forget.

Want to have your change stolen? Like having bartenders tip themselves? The women here cop an attitude with all comers, and soon goers, to this stupid dump. I never EVER let my friends go here, and be warned, you will be standing around with a bunch of chumps, wishing they were someplace else than this horrid little tourist trap.

so me and a few friends go to this place after clubbing. i ask for any type of canadian beer, and the bartender starts ripping me for asking for canadian beer and accuses me of being canadian eventhough i aint even canadian! the bartender was so rude to all the customers!

if you are into getting belittled and treated like dirt, go here, if you are someone that is like me, dont go here!

This place is truly FUN!! I encopurage everyone with any sense to go--but only once!! the place really sucks the second time. the bartender banter is identical to the last time youy went (and you realize it is a script), some of the "patrons" jumping onto the bar are the same girls from the week before (and you realize that they are getting paid) and you realize that all the frat boys in the room are if not the same, indistinguishable from all the frat boys you ever met in your life. my ratings are based on going the first time--which i encourage--just don't go again!!

OK, I get the Bitchy Bartender Gimmick, but isn't this going a little over the top? If you're an overgrown frat boy who likes to indulge in verbal S&M while paying way-too-high prices for so-so beer and being forced to buy shots, it's the place for you. If not, don't go! Instead, try Coyote Ugly in the East Village. Same idea; much more friendly; cheaper drinks; better music!

I love this place. Just a good ol' time. Don't bother if you don't like crowds and rude bartenders. It is an expierence to be had at least once. Don't let the crowd outside sway you into not coming in, it is somewhat friendly inside. Leave your tie and club colors at home.

Sure, celebs are known to visit this famous bar but we were disappointed after 10 mins. The first bartender was very rude and made us want to leave within 5 mins. The next one made up for the first ones rude behavior as she was kind and friendly. Not much dancing on the bar but it was a little early. Would have more fun elsewhere.

I thought hogs wasa fun place to hang out or at least start a night in the city in. The night we went there was a bridal party there , a bunch of drunk ,stupied girls just looking for a good time. The bartenders are fun , but can be a bit insulting so don't go there if you are thin skinned.It is really worth a stop into.

Don't get me wrong, I had a good time(sort of)...but the bartenders are a little over the top w/their bull horns yelling at people. One of the bartenders DEMANDED my boyfriend and I to leave her a $10 tip on a $20 order, and she wasn't very pleasant about it, and started yelling at my boyfriend. The place is very small and cramped, pretty hard to get a drink. Yea, they might have cheap drinks, but the demands of outrageous tips makes you spend more than the pricer places. Good experience to go to ONCE and only ONCE!

although crowded with yuppys and frat boys at night, the afternoon/early evening crowd will mostly likely include some bikers, some steelworkers, some locals, and some female tourists. this and pabst blue ribbon for 1.75 a can makes for an entertaining if not fruitfull drunken outing. One word of advice: don't let the ladies behind the bar treat you like a sucker.

great place to have fun, relax with friends and laugh. the insults are staged but they keep the crowd on their toes, and the attitude is real. it took us a while to get the bartenders to dance on the bar but once they did, they were soon joined by lots of the other ladies there. i found the crowd to be friendly as well as the guys checking ID's at the door. have a PBR and relax!

We had a great time, except for getting hit in the face with an ice cube the barmaid threw at me from across the room for dancing on a chair. The bathrooms were kept quite clean, someone was checking them frequently though the night. The barmaids frequently yell insults or other comments over the bullhorn, but it is difficult to understand them. They danced on the bar several times, they were great. Most important, beer was icy cold. We had no problem getting served dispite the crowd.

if ya got a group of people and some people wouldn't be able to deal with dancing, this is a good alternative to a nightclub. the bartenders are tremendously funny insulting everyone. (If they don't yell at you, you're not in the game!) don't wear a tie, order shots and beers and everything is loads of fun. even a pool table in the back. the only thing i noticed upon my third trip....the bartenders were telling the same jokes and yelling the same insults. the place is really fun a couple of times, but after you get the joke, it's time to move on.

Maybe I'm missing the point and possibly I'm not the right person to be going to this bar, but I've been drinking all over the world and Hogs and Heifers is quite possibly the only bar I'd actually advise EVERYONE on the planet to avoid. The people there are just plain foul and the so-called cheap booze has to be supplemented by five dollar ripoff shots for the bartenders, so it's not that cheap at all.
