Staff is extremely friendly, drinks are reasonable and the food is great. I especially like their weekend brunch. The location is convenient in the (slightly) East Village. Joe the owner is the best and if you become a regular, they buy lots of drinks.

We visited this bar during a Saint Patrick's weekend visit. The staff are friendly and the beer is very good. We were asked to move tables to allow an elderly group sit down. As there was only 2 of us this was not a problem....More

We made a reservation for a large group of 15-18. Great spot. Plenty of room to sit or stand. The waitress was amazing with such a large group. Happy hour cocktails were fun and yummy, and the appetizers were huge and really great quality! Calamari...More

Great sports-type bar with friendly staff - got quite busy later on but good service for drinks. Didn't realise there were other floors!

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
