Great local dive

I live close by and hang out here occasionally. No frills, salty and fun bartenders, and surprisingly good bar food! They make their mozzarella sticks in house, for example, and they're HUGE. I love trivia night too! If You want an unpretentious, old school joint, this is the place to be. They've... read more

Went here late one night, full of locals, all basically drinking, not a lot of food being served. We had the chips and salsa - average at best, nothing fancy and the fish and chips and a burger. The fish and fries were greasy. We left them and didn't finish. When we asked what kind of fish, 2 waitresses didn't... More

From what I could gather while there this is the place where people who work in the neighborhood go after their shifts to hang out. It is a dive bar with an aeronautical theme that offers an OK selection of food. I can't really say it was a cheap place since I only drank beer ($7 each), but I got... More

We went here after seeing a show at Gotham. We ordered some mixed drinks which tasted like the bartender forgot the alcohol so we switched to doubles, no change. We ordered some nachos which were pretty poor and only had toppings on the top layer. We then switched to wings which were ok but nothing special. Good as a last... More

Flight 151 in the Chelsea neighborhood offers a great bar & a varied menu, including the Polish favorite, piroghi in three different fillings. Traditional bar, booths, tables, medium-loud music, sports on TV. A pleasant hangout for any age or style. Good happy hour specials, friendly staff.

I met with a friend here one night to catch up as we haven't seen each other in two years. It just happened to be Tuesday, where the bar does a Flip Night (flip a coin, if you guess correctly, your drink is free). A local bar where we had gone to college also did a flip night, so it... More

I was looking for casual, traditional, "just a bar" and this place delivered. Great service, decent food, reasonably priced and interesting but easy, comfortable atmosphere.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
