I just moved to NYC from the west coast and wanted a place to grab a quick drink and a burger after seeing Ground Zero with my friends. I read good reviews about this place and was psyched to check it out because they say it's low key. I've been experiencing many of the NY hang outs as a bit snooty and thought this place sounded different and un-obnoxious. I got that wrong: The bartender on duty was cute, but SO much more obnoxious than warranted by looks. I waited 15 min to order and it wasn't even crowded..AND my drink was warm. When I asked for some ice in it, I got eye rolling and my glass slammed down on the bar! Next, an old woman who did not seem disruptive or threatening to me came in and asked to use the restroom. An older guy (who I assume was a manager because he kept going in and out of locked doors while I was there) barked at the old woman and told her that if she wasn't a paying customer that she had to leave. She asked him to please make an exception as she was elderly and taking a medication that made her just need to quickly use the facilities. He told her to go to BURGER KING! The woman must have been 80 years old. She told the guy he should be ashamed of himself. I agree!! Then to make things about a million times more offensive, some guy just walked in, went straight to the bathroom and came out 5 min later and walked out of the bar. No questions asked! We decided to get out of there but were really hungry and had no idea where to go nearby, so we deicded to get food before leaving. We had brugers, which were ok. Just ok- not great at all, and the onion on mine was sort of gritty..like it was dirty. Last, as we're leaving my friends and I are horrified by the sound of someone being screamed at from behind a closed door near the back of the bar. We ran out, so I can't say what that was about.. just that I wouldn't recommend going to this place unless you like nasty people, bad food, questionable screaming, and snotty service. NEVER going back!!
Cons: AWFUL PEOPLE BAD SERVICE!
