Plasma screens with HD - yup, and they play 'Canes games
Friendly & Hot bartenders/staff - hell yeah!
Good music - check
Lively, fun crowd - usually
Good food - mmmm, panini's
Reasonable prices - Bling, bling!

Extra bonus points - very cool, relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable seating with great banquets and beautiful black marble bar. Oh yeah, and you can play the games - Battleship, Connect Four....it's on like Donkey Kong!

Well folks, looks like I'll be back.

It's so hard to find a place in the East Village that isnt too crowded, too loud, or too expensive. This place is everything I always want in a bar, and can never find under one roof. Great food, great jukebox (but you can still hear yourself think), and great friendly atmosphere. And Scrabble! What more could you want?

I've lived in the East Village for almost 5 years now, and I've been waiting for a bar like this the whole time. Comfortable but not dive-y, sophisticated but not pretentious, fun and social but not overbearing... In less than a month since its opening, this bar really found a way to strike a perfect balance. Add the best juke box in town and delicious options for food, and I don't see a reason to go elsewhere...

Awesome new kid on the block. One of the best juke boxes (though I'm waiting for Cash), flat-screen TVs fit for the MOMA, paninis and those buttery/garlicky walnuts (oh my!), Clue and Connect Four for my competitive edge and that mirror (sadly, too big to steal) -- perfect after my 5th Guinness when I can squint and pretend I measure up to the off-the-runway, fairest bar staff of them all. Definitely my new local.

Pros: friendly staff, great food, music

Cons: no caviar on menu

Editorial from

In Short
Were it not for the inherent modesty of the neighborhood, the crystal chandeliers, chocolate woods and shelves of leather-bound books might make this East Village bar seem high-falutin'. Instead, a warm, comfortable air…
