Everything was great, except... 7/22/2009

So I walked into this place with high hopes. I had no idea it was Pete Wentz's bar, but it was tucked away and dark which is always a good thing to me. It has a decent amount of seating, though on weekends it is probably much more crowded. The crowd is mainly laid-back young types that may or may not be 21. After one musician finished his acoustic set I was pleasantly surprised to hear a few tracks from the new Grizzly Bear album. This turned out to be too good to be true however as a shoe-less wannabe hipster got up to perform some of the worst music I've ever heard. It sounded like the kind of music an angsty 12 year old from a small town might make in his basement. Only apparently someone must have told this dude it was a good idea to start performing. I wish I could find whoever that was and beat them senseless. I should clarify that he had no real musical ability and was merely rapping/singing horribly off-key into a mic. That and the fact that my well gin drink was easily the worst gin I've ever tasted made me leave shortly thereafter. (Incidentally, I get the whole cheap liquor that gets you drunk appeal since everyone there was probably still in the getting wasted phase of their life, but I'm 26 and I'd prefer to enjoy my drink thank you. Also I don't think well should automatically equal s**t.) Pros: Decor, music selection, crowd Cons: well liquor, live music assault more

Cool scene 4/10/2009

As a huge Fall Out Boy fan, I felt it was my duty to come and see what this place is all about and I can safely say that all of my expectations were met, nay, exceeded. Everyone was really cool, the crowd was totally my type of people. The service and booze were great. The bartender made me and my friends several rounds of these ""Hello Kitty"" shots with vodka and Ty ku (which has a light-up bottle! So sick!). The decor is dark, but totally rad if you're into eclectic music and stuff. All in all, great visit. Pros: cool crowd, great drinks Cons: crowded on weekends more

Expected 5/22/2008

A typical night out for a few girl friends of mine always consist of tuesday nights at Angels & Kings. The sweet door man to the small dark atmosphere really make the night an intimate yet relaxed evening. There is no pretentious New Yorkers lurking around this bar, just your average mix of hipsters and pretty young girls. Everyone is very friendly and the bartenders are charming and accommodating, not to mention easy on the eyes. All in all i would recommend A&K for just a low key night out or even for a private party! more

Unsanitary bartender with a bad attitude! 4/20/2008

I went there there with 5 friends on Saturday night, mind you it was Passover so all bars in NYC were DEAD!!! You would think the bartender would be eager to get business being that there were very few people in the bar but not so much!! Pros: Next door to a better bar where the bartenders have no attitude! Cons: Unsanitary, bad attitude by tall preppy bartender, dark bathrooms more

friendly, pseudo, not cheap and no food 3/21/2008

In the East Village, it's a punk bar with poseur prices. No food (though they do have take-out menus), but plenty of barely 20 somethings experimenting with new haircuts. The crowd is friendly, though, and so is the bartender. Not the snob action you might expect. Lots of space... and some dancing. Not much else to say. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers Pros: friendly, good people watching, Cons: no food, somewhat pricey for the style and location more

Good new bar with a good-looking crowd 7/24/2007

This bar is apparently pretty new, but you'd never know it from the crowd. It gets pretty packed on Friday and Saturday nights, but it probably has the best ratio of girls to guys of any bar I've seen in the city...and crowd is way above-average in the looks department. The music isn't what you'd expect from a bar owned by someone in a rock band - but then again, the band is Fallout Boy, so I guess it could be much worse. The bartenders are nice, but it can be hard to get a drink anyway, since it gets so crowded. The bathroom lines can also get really long, and one very horny bouncer who fancies himself a pimp is not at all shy about escorting good-looking girls to the front of the line in exchange for a kiss...oh yeah - the bathrooms are unisex, so guys should be prepared to wait a while if there are girls ahead...there is also a bar around the corner that is always empty and is great when you don't want to wait on line. Overall though, it's a great bar with a great crowd and a good atmosphere/setup. Definitely worth checking out on the weekend. Pros: Very attractive/good-sized crowd, great atmosphere Cons: Long lines for the bar and bathrooms more
