This past Saturday I went with a group of (very respectable) ladies to the Barrow Street Ale House for my sister's Bachelorette Party.We were in no way Out of Control (except that it was stated on the sash she wore), or even rambunctious at that. We were out to enjoy ourselves.Simple... or so one would think. In the booth next to us we ended up meeting a group of equally respectable guys who were out celebrating a bachelor party.We were fast friends.This was to the dismay of the (mis)manager who stood brooding at the end of the bar. He accused the gents of laughing too loud-what a crime!Our first interaction had been when one of the girls waved at him and he promptly flipped her the bird-his customer service oozing obviously out of every orifice.He also had a problem with people kneeling on the banquettes to to talk to one another. He came marching over and spewed his venom in a menacing way.There was no ""please sit down, we worry about accidents"", it was simply sit down and turn around-like you were misbehaving in church instead of hanging out in a bar.Not long after he accused one of the gents of having an attitude problem simply for asking what he'd done wrong (which was nothing). He then kicked them out, forcing the waitress void dozens of drinks that had just been served.We left with them in a display of unity.I can't properly describe his display of controlling, abusive behavior, but he should not be in the ""hospitality"" industry.It was such an unbelievable scene, I have never witnessed such disgraceful unprofessional behavior.When we left (yes, there was name calling, but deserved) we went down the street to the Four Faced Liar.We told the bouncer there what had just happened and he couldn't believe it-as no one was misbehaving! We enjoyed the rest of our evening there.So if you're in the village, skip Barrow Street and its socio, and head straight for the Four Faced Liar.I guarantee all you'll be missing is being able to write a review like this... Enjoy!
Cons: Any pro it could have had was ruined by the manager/owner
