We stopped here for a bachelorette party after reading reviews online. They have an extensive shot list and some of them come with special music or a skit. If you're nearby or celebrating a special event, definitely make your way here. After seeing the videos...More

This bar is a good stop for a couple of shots. They have so many options. The $7 ones are awesome because they do skits or play music. It is even better here when it is not busy (Mondays) because the bartender can really get...More

We had a hard time choosing between all the shots they offer in this amazing bar! We started with the 'Harry Potter' shot and were surprised of the hilarious act the bartenders offer. This bar is really vibrant and they have reasonable prices for NYC....More
