EHHHH 11/24/2008

I didnt find this place to have a rude staff like some other reviewers, but I did find the bar to be a crowded, rowdy mess. I was having a really good time but after a while, you are bumped too many times and spilled on too many times. more


This place is dead, dull and lLIFELESS. This is a sure bet for a terrible eveing. Not even alcohol can't get you out of a bad mood being in this bar. You can't meet anyone here. The drinks were weak. The bartender was the worst part, he stood outside for a cigarette, then decided to come back in, even though we had waited a while! Then took our order, served our drinks and walked away. Sat in the corner didn't speak to anyone. Pros: nothing at all Cons: BARTENDERS, the decor, weak drinks, boring atmospehere more

extremely rude staff!! 5/8/2008

Go to Tin Lizzie's only if you want to be called a ""terrible person"" by the bartender. Yes, that's a direct quote. After a mixup with credit cards, which was more than resolved, my friend and I were told ""never to come back and that we were the worst customers the bar has ever seen"". This is after myself and about 15 friends gave them great business for 4+ hours AND a 90% tip at the end of the night. I then found a manager to try and resolve the situation, which was no help. He blew me off and acted like nothing happened. Even after writing a letter a few days later, I received no phone call or apology back, which I more than deserved. I will never go back to this bar or encourage anyone to do the same. They may have good music, but they need basic lesson in customer service and simple manners before I would ever think about going back. Pros: great variety of music Cons: TERRIBLY RUDE BARTENDERS AND MGMT NOT HELPFUL! more

Best bar in the city, Hot Bartenders! 8/25/2007

Had the best time at Tin Lizzies. If your in the city and want to have a great time its definately the place to go. Hot bartenders... especially this guy jt who always hooks you up and looks good doing it. He has to be the hottest bartender in the city and is there every saturday night that ive ever been there. Definately recommend Tin Lizzies for a good time! Pros: Great Drinks, Good Music, Hot Bartenders Cons: You'll get really drunk more

unpretentious friday night out 8/19/2007

went here last night for my birthday and had a great time -- Dj played fun songs all night (hip hop, pop, etc) drinks were cheap and strong. dont go out very often in manhattan because everywhere either has a snobby attitude or is a pub -- but tin lizzy was definitely a blast Pros: strong drinks, music, crowd Cons: someone stole my jacket more

Never had a bad night at Tin Lizzy! 6/6/2007

I have been to Tin Lizzy a few times and I've always managed to drink a nice amount at a great price. Very chill and laid-back atmosphere. Bartenders EXTREMELY friendly and entertaining. Doormen can be a little pushy though. I spend last New Year's Eve there and it was a blast! I return whenever I I want a guarenteed fun night out. Pros: Great, chill bar Cons: kind of small and the crowd gets big! more

User review by kriles 1/25/2006

I don't think I ever walked out of this place sober....the music is great, the drinks are strong, and I could stare at the HOT Dee Jay all night longggggg more

Don't Bring Attitude 12/1/2005

The most enjoyable nights/early mornings spent on the Upper East Side are at Tin Lizzy. The crowd is friendly and attractive but NOT pretentious. The familiar music makes it impossible to sit still (and hear the next day), and the drink prices are extremely the bartenders will occasionally give away a round of shots to keep a smile on your face. If you can't have an awesome night here, you probably couldn't have a good time anywhere. Pros: Fun crowd, Friendly bartenders Cons: Music is too loud more

Good times 8/21/2005

Overall - it's a fun place w/ LOTS of dancing. The DJ was great. Could've used a little more air conditioning but the booze took care of that. Averagely priced. Definitely recommended if you're tired of the trendy, pretentious crowd. Pros: music, fun crowd Cons: little too hot more

A nice alternative 10/17/2004

I usually to Mad River and Brother Jimmy's but this place was a really good alternative. The music was too loud (my ears were ringing the next day) but it was really fun. Everyone dances, the music selection was great and as the night goes on, people get more and more crazy. I went with boyfriend but will definately leave him home next time I go here! Pros: Good Music Selection, Good Crowd, Dancing more

laid-back, fun time 9/18/2004

Although the music WAS incredibly louder than average, the tunes were classic 80s, great to sing and dance to! I am definitely as un-Greekish as it gets and I totally dug this bar...really friendly girls and guys, laid-back atmosphere, cheap drinks make this bar just a great, fun way to cap off your night. Dancing was open and inclusive-- everyone kind of ""joins in""- I definitely recommend this for someone to try at least once! Pros: Good Music, Laid-back, Friendly Cons: , Incredibly Crowded more

Annoying Greek System Rejects 5/30/2003

This bar could be fun. It has a fair sized dance floor, two bars to work, fair priced drinks, and no cover charge. Unfortunately, it is overly packed with frat boys and sorority girl grads and wannabes who lurch around drunkenly (not in a good way) and think they are dancing. They make the dance floor more of an annoying bumper car experience, rather than energetic and sexy. Unlike other reviewers, I like the 80s mix of music but on the two nights I was there, the music of was so loud I could barely hear my friends and talk to ladies. I am used to ""club"" decibel levels, but this was ridiculous. Pros: dance floor Cons: frat house crowd, too crowded more

make-over 3/20/2003

this place has always been fun, but they just re-did the entire bar inside and out (it needed it). looks great!! more

Drunk White kids in the city 8/12/2002

If your idea of fun is a bunch of guys jamming out to Bon Jovi, and some average looking girls loving Sweet Caroline then by all means head hear. Got dragged here last Sat, this people who talk about a DJ are hilarious. Basically pull out your CD book from sixth grade and you are now a DJ. Only good thing was the rookie bartender who we took advantage of all night. Thankfully the people who like these places tend to stay there. Pros: Rookie Bar Tender, Drunk Ugly girls, looking for sex Cons: Music Sucked, Crowd Sucked more
