    Great happy hour specials at this West Village joint. Head to the back room, where you'll find couches and a fireplace - the perfect place to catch up with friends on a cold winter day.

    Big comfy booths by the bar, $25 bottles of wine (get the rioja). check out the back room for a funkier vibe - weird velvet couches, paintings and a fireplace. We didn't eat but the food looked good!

    Eclectic mix of people, programmable electronic jukebox, bar food and the hidden back art room in the back is a jem. Happy Hour 4pm‐7pm daily. Cool staff!

    Old school dive bar... front bar is tight spacing with many more benches/tables in the back!! Happy hour has beer and well-drink deals, but standing room only I've noticed

    This place is great for cheap drinks and solid food. I like the lounge in the back for relaxing and having drinks. I can usually leave having spent $30 or less on about 3-4 drinks and food

    The Coconut Rumble is so smooth! Warm environment & super cozy/funky backroom, loved the place.

    The front is your basic dive, but the lounge in the back is super cozy. Full of couches and a fireplace. Good drink specials, but can get crowded.

    Amazing happy hour ($3.50 drafts!), big booths, and lots of seating in the back. Food is pretty OK too!

    Looks/feels like a douchey bar when you first walk in but go through the curtains into the bar and it's awesome! Also, happy hour special is great. Half off every draft beer or house wine.

    This might be the best happy hour pricing in the area. And it's every day, 4-7. The back room is nice to get cozy in, it even has a fire place!

    Make sure to go to the back room where all the couches are. Oh and the mixed drinks are $8! A steal for NYC.

    Make sure you find a spot in the back, awesome place for a chilled drink. Also mini pigs in a blanket are soooo dope.

    Best prices in the west village on happy hour, then you can take you drunk ass to the cubbyhole and have fun with the staff and lots of girls

    McKenna's was packed so wandered in here, good Happy Hour half-price drinks, burger and fries were good enough, service was super slow, sit at the bar was the lesson learned.

    The table by the door gets cold when people come in an out. The beer wench takes quite a while to deliver drinks. Thus, obviously, one must sit at the bar.

    Art Bar is snug, with just a few booths, no art, and ‘80s tunes. It’s a local watering hole, with no frills and a lot of warm welcomes.

    Good times. Needed the Riesling And chicken tenders. Just couldn't stand some of the patrons and the overlapping music of theistic box. Still love the atmosphere regardless

    Nice place to grab a drink and just hang out with friends. Grab a couch seat in the back room early.

    Cut straight through the busy front bar, through the curtain and into the back filled with couches for canoodling, art for conversation and a fireplace if or a dash of romance.

    Best happy hour deals. An old school dive in the midst of fancier fare.

    Order the buffalo calamari. It's not on the menu, but because we order it so much, they'll make it for you. It is DELICIOUS!

    Great place with couches and good happy hour. BUT waiter was rude, obnoxious and in a hurry. I couldn't believe how rude he was when taking our order and trying to hurry us up. Complete turn off!

    i like this place. it's a little seedy, but it's comfortable and lots of room. i wouldn't recommend the dumplings, but it's forgiven because the music all night was just so fly.

    The back room behind the curtains is for sexy time, the front booth by the windows is for catchin up.
