Stopped in for a drink and got such a cold welcome I don't think it ever happen tp me before... The bartender, who seemed as he had been there forever, must really hate his work or just had a bad day. We left after one drink and went to spend our money somewhere else that wanted it.

Wanted a few drinks to watch the world go by. Perfect for people watching in NY, as people use the front window as a mirror sometimes. Sat there about 3 hours listening to some great music and well priced drinks. Didn't eat there, but perfect for a time out. Owner opened main front to let the air in. A few... More

Some friends and I found this place while in Chelsea one evening. It looked interesting, with an airplane theme (complete with plane parts on the walls and "interesting" names for their drinks). When looking through the menu, we noticed a lot of different style hot dogs. I'm always one for trying new things so we got a couple of hot... More

Amazing food. Better Mexican than many restaurants around here. Order anything, you won't be disappointed. Great drink specials. Rowdy sports fans, but not deafening. Great juke box turns up the bass. I love everything here.

The food is good but not spectacular. The saloon is a little bit dark , the bench are old and not very comfortable. The waitress only want to sell new beverages during the lunch , take care if she propose a new coke ,she'll put on the bill it :-( Another point is the presence of a non smily boss... More

They do a good steak and I like the random trivia questions they throw out. First one to answer correctly gets a free drink of whatever they're on at the time. Bar staff not overly friendly but still professional.

Great service and recommended for a neighborhood hangout. The food is really good, but super greasy. The mixed drinks are very weak so its preferred to get wine or beer so you know what you are paying for.

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 been open for a LONG time, even by... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
