This place is good if you want to pregame as they have a 5 shots for $12 special. No strings attached and the only issue I have is how crowded it could get during the weekend making it impossible to move around with your drink...More

Actually I've been there in March on st. Patricks day. Of course, the banner about 5 shots of everything for $10 lured us inside. At first it was pretty empty and the music was ok, but then some nostalgic classic hits softened the mood in...More

I am shocked that this place is allowed to exist. Honestly! This place made special rules to following their "rope" with no one one on it. They are frequently racist. I have seen the door staff turn people away who were of color. The staff......More

I don't understand bad reviews of this place. If you show up thinking you are going into a proper bar then that is your fault. This place has the cheapest drinks in NYC, great music. For a pregame it's great. All you need to know.

This bar offers cheap drinks at all times of the day. For $10 you can get 5 shots of hard liquor, I like coming here to pre-game before heading out to the clubs around the area. They do have a semi-strict dress code, no baggy...More

My boyfriend and I were walking around looking for a bar to get drinks and were drawn in by the shot specials. We should have known it was too good to be true. Watered down is an understatement. The "shots" were tiny and had hardly...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
