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

Came here on our first night as it read as a decent non-rip off place near our hotel. Bar staff was friendly. Sampled the local IPA and a Knob Creek bourbon. Recommended place for an end of the night drink. Lots of weird shot combos...More
