“Fun and somewhat feral!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

I rate this as very good? It certainly is different to any other bar we went to in New York. Good place to see a different group of locals, most of whom are a bit over refreshed! Good tap beer and really quite crazy atmosphere. Must have been ok because I went there 3 times for a cold beer before arriving at our nearby hotel. Did not eat there but burgers looked good. If you are in the area give it a go - it will leave you wondering .. what the ... was that!

“Super dive bar. A real New York cast of characters. Cheap drinks.”

Cool place for a brew. Hang out with locals. Don't mind the smell in the bathrooms... The food is decent, too. Good burgers and fries.

“Great Pub! Definitely a hidden jewel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Me and my friends had stumbled upon this place. Since the whiskey was at a great price, we ended up staying for 3 hours. I would recommend this place to anyone, service is awesome and you can definitely chat it up with strangers if you like.

“Enter as a stranger, leave as a friend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We met a local friend here on a trip from out of town. It was just like "Cheers." As soon as we walked in, the locals recognized our friend and made us feel like we had been going there for the last decade. Limited but good tap beer selection and a good bottle menu gave every one what they wanted. We didn't order food as we had dinner prior to arriving but the menu board looked tempting. We sat and talked for hours and the bill was fair and appropriate. Carlos our waiter made us feel like we could come back on our own any time and find a friendly face here. So very New York because it is a friendly, welcoming place, so non-new York because it is not pretentious or trying to be something it isn't. Cant wait to go back for a drink and a smile!

“Interesting...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Nancy Whiskey is a favourite of mine for a few reasons. It's quirky and after a few drinks-fun. The bar staff hover somewhere between rude and disinterested. Maybe if you frequent the place on a regular basis you become accepted.
It does, however, have a certain charm and the juke box is great. Brilliant if you want to escape boutique hotels for a while and not pay high prices for a decent drink.
