Awesome bar!! 2/14/2009

\r Awesome bar, highly recommended\r \r Cozy and intimiate, only been there on weekday nights but never too crowded and able to get a table. Drink special is unreal and until 10! \r \r Do not know about the previous posts but the wait staff was nothing if not courteous to me, again highly recommend for after work/date place more

Great Customer Service - Geoff 8/10/2008

When I think of a saturday night out, I could go to Tenjune, Marquee, or any wanna be pop culture hangout in the LES....but I prefer the Boxcar. Why? I've never had or seen any jerks at this place. It's like a secret bar you can take over with a bunch of friends and just chill. It's not a fashion show yet it's often filled with mid twenty somethings looking to chat with friends. \r \r If you're freaking out over a Heineken 2 for 1 special, you should know that if you bought two Heine's at the Boxcar you're getting a deal anyway. I'm so sick of overrated bs bars that charge 15 dollars for a beer. It's incredible, this is the only city that gets more expensive to party during a ""recession"". \r \r Geoff is the best bartender. He's super friendly and has his own unique style. If it weren't for Geoff, people wouldn't flock to this place to have a good time. Thank you Geoff for all you've done for us. You're a great person and we love you! \r \r Mer Pros: Geoff Cons: Avenue B 12th street area is zzzzzzz.... more

Rudest Bartender in the City! 7/8/2008

My boyfriend and I went here last (Sunday 7/7/08) night to grab a couple beers for Happy Hour. From the moment we said Hello to the bartender he was rude. No pleasantries here- just ""What do you want?!"" And then once we mentioned that we wanted to do the 2 for 1 special he rolls his eyes with disgust. He slams down our Heinken's (which were not very cold) and flips us the two drink tickets. When we returned to the bar to redeem our beers he screams ""Yeah, what do you want?!"" At this point I am thinking to myself that we must part of hidden camera program or a practical joke. He claims us he is out of Heineken. Yeah, I bet! No problem, we'll take Amstel Lights. This guy was so rude! If a bar is going to advertise a happy hour special don't treat your partons like dirt when they order it. It makes sense why there were not many people taking advantage of the special here. If you do take your chances here- make sure you read the Happy Hour FAQ's posted on the bar. It says ""Let's ALL get happy for Happy Hour"" Maybe this guy should heed some of the Boxcar's advice! Pros: 2 for 1 special Cons: extremely rude bartender more

TIny and lame 2/20/2008

I went to this bar to see a friend of mine read part of her book. After reading about this bar online, I was excited about the kick butt happy hour that is ""every night"". I get to the bar, it is so tiny i can't even move. The bartender looks like a perv and all the people there are subdued and kind of ugly. I order drinks and get charged full price. I ask if its happy hour, of course not, its a reading.\r This place bites, don't ever go. more

Great Outdoors 3/1/2007

I have been here several times over the summer with a big posse of friends, and always had a great time. They have a pretty good happy hour on the weekdays, and we always liked to go outback and sit and smoke and chat and drink. It's very casual and more of a place you want to make your regualr hangout, rather than a trendy club pumpin' music place. But don't talk to loudly outside or you will be yelled at by the nieghbors upstairs. Pros: Backyard, cheap drinks, chill vibe Cons: sometimes the bartenders can be creeps more

Best Happy Hour 11/21/2006

I was bummed out to find that the happy hour doesn't go until 10 on weekends, but on weekdays this is the place to go when you're not kidding yourself about having just one. Great little place, I'm surprised it isn't constantly packed. They have a nice outdoor area for smokers. Pros: happy hour, outside space Cons: small more

Best Place Ever 8/20/2005

Boxcar Lounge really is one of the best places in the city. It is small, but not in a bad way. The bartenders are always cute and fun to talk to, the ambience is completely laid back, and it's just good, clean, unpretentious fun to drink here. Not to mention that the back yard is incredibly nice... It just doesn't get any better for an intimate chill-drinks-with friends kinda place. Perfect for a few pre-game warm-up drinks before heading to a club... just as easy to relax and close the place down. Highly recommended!!! Pros: Intimate, Friendly, Great back yard more

A great time had by all 6/7/2005

I recently hosted a birthday party at Boxcar. I highly recommend this spot for anyone that is looking for a place with great atmosphere and fantastic drink specials (it don't get better than happy hour until 10 PM). The staff is really friendly and will definitely take care of you. You can contact them via their website to reserve tables for your party, and you MUSt check out the heated garden in the back. I can safely say that I will be back real soon... Pros: drink specials, service, heated garden Cons: a little cramped more

Bad service from bar owner 3/31/2005

I used to really enjoy this bar and its great happy hour and nice outdoor area but on a recent visit I encountered a horrible bartender with a major chip on his shoulder who I later found out is one of the owners. Snappy with his patrons and extremely rude I dont think I will be going back any time soon or recommending it to any of my friends. Stay away wednesday nights. Pros: good happy hour Cons: bad service, unfriendly atmosphere, rude bartender more

Trashy but Chic ""girlfriendly"" lounge 1/25/2005

No longer just a wine and beer spot the Boxcar LOUNGE now has a liquor license and a fully stocked bar.This is a neat spot.It has a comfortable bar/lounge feel.A bit divey but not dumpy.There are comfy couches,an electric fireplace,tables and a garden where you can SMOKE! The lights are kept down low for the hip,low key crowd and the music ranges from Soul to Sinatra,60's rock to modern r&b.This is a particularly ""girl friendly""place where you can hang with your friends without being hassled by horndogs.The cool,relaxed vibe is particularly good for couples and groups too. Pros: atmosphere, girl friendly, great music more

Relaxed and great drinks 8/23/2004

The outside patio is great, even inside has a laid back feel. Their stout & port drink is a must try if you like stout beer (aka Guinness) and ruby port wine. Pros: Happy Hour, Bathroom, Service more
