We were recommended this bar by a friend & it was really worth seeking out!! It was only just round the corner from our hotel on Lexington. It was really busy but had a good buzzing vibe with people out for a few drinks 🍺🍺👍

Found this bar after drinks close by, and we decided to come in for a cocktail. To be honest, any place called SNAFU has to be visited - fans of office abbreviations will enjoy the name - and we did indeed have a very nice...More

Great unassuming hangout on the East Side. You can't go wrong with the happy hour until 8pm. And great ambiance until 3am. Never a cover. Just bring ID

Stopped by for a nightcap en route to my hotel (The Bernic). Good service, nice selection, funky scene (my "barstool" was a huge, decommissioned Bose speaker), and just enough tipsy diversity to make things interesting. I'm a wine drinker, and their selections were amazingly good.

Stopped in here since it was close to my hotel. Interesting blend of people, including some likely prostitutes. The beers were spendy and the service slow. I would not be in a rush to return to this place....
