City definitely wins at this New York bar although you will find touches of the west like "glass" elk heads and a lodge style fireplace. The space feels great; however, if you want to have a conversation with someone, the front room does not lend itself to chatting. It is loud and there is little room to sit where you are not in the way of the bar. I never made it in the back room so I am not sure if it was better back there. I would be interested in any feedback.
