I remember a time when I used to go here almost every weekend and got to know the door staff fairly well. Sadly after my last trip I don't think its worth heading back. The talent is always varied but a couple of straight nights a couple of acts per night were painful. The servers used to be AMAZING but... More

Love this pub, first came here in 1991, was glad to see it still felt the same, friendly bar staff, great Guinness and football on the TV. The wife liked it too :), just wished we'd had more time to explore Greenwich Village, maybe next time!!

Great spot in the village to watch soccer especially Man U. They open early on game days and the vibe is quite fun to watch a game. Great location too, after the game you can enjoy the rest of the day in the village.

My husband and I visited here when "santacon" was on. They had a young bad on which were good and the staff were very attentive. It does however feel like a student / really young person bar which isn't a problem but just wanted to advise. We had a laugh and they showed the sport.

This has been the 'grunge bar' that we have frequented for a number of years as it always had a good atmosphere. On this occasion, they had not eating on staff, only a bar man who either couldn't cope or didn't care (not sure which), but we were totally ignored. This is a major oversight as there are an increasingly... More

I loved the place - only two complaints I had: 1. Place is exceptionally (ear numbing) loud, 2. Tequilas are dilute ... I don't know whether they want their guests to not talk and rather drink and enjoy... if I knew before I would have come with different mindset. I will give this place another try sometime.

After patronizing this place, I read several other reviews that said the bartenders or waitstaff tried to take more money from the customer than was due. I went with friends for drinks at happy hour. I was pleased to see their happy hour went until 8PM, but it turned out the only happy one was our bartender. Our round came... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
