I used to come here back in the mid-90s, when I was a lot younger and before New York turned into a "Sex and the City" theme park. This was one of my favorite hangouts back in the day--the back room has a big comfortable...More

Their Happy Hour during the week is the best option in the area. $8 martinis and shaken drinks! During the weekend, it does get extremely busy, so beware.

We went just after happy hour on a Friday night. The place was full but not packed. The bartender and waitstaff were friendly and fast. Did not try any of the food.

The back room is where it's at. Cosy couches, a fire and that big mural painting on the wall. Cheap & strong cocktails, the Pink Lemonade & Pearadise were favourites. The cajun shrimp & vege nachos were yummy bar snacks.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
