    Great place to come during the week (it gets super crowded during the weekends) for happy hour. Our favorite part: the photobooth!

    Love the music here! We heard The Doors, the Strokes, a live version of Hotel California. Music that can't go wrong, really. This was early evening.

    The bartender in by the dance floor makes the best drinks😉 but the DJs tend to be... If you're down to bop and shimmy, you'll like the music.

    Get liquid courage somewhere else and dance it off in the back room. If you meet someone cute take them to Lovers of Today next door.

    Best place for dancing in Alphabet City. On weekends has great DJs that play 90s jams.

    The back room is perfect for dancing to nineties hits on weekends, and the photobooth is constantly occupied by couples and reunited friends.

    Low key spot in the day. At night this is a good place that's close to everything/not as crowded/ but still fun.

    Yeah you can easily see the Joe Strummer mural on the wall. But take the tour to unlock the rich alcohol and musical traditions of this spot going back over 100 years! Read more

    Order a pint on a cool fall Saturday afternoon and sit on the bench by the big picture window looking out on the corner of Ave A & 7th. Best peoplewatching in Alphabet City.

    Dance space in the back room is great. There is a bar back there too.

    Niagara never fails to disappoint, even after all these years. Relax and have a drink at the bar, or make your way downstairs for an impromptu dance party- complete with a tiki bar and christmas light

    I turn off the news and walk over to Niagara at the corner of 7th and A. It's about nine and the place is dead, the hipsters won't start crowding in till eleven.—Charlie Huston, Already Dead Read more

    Embrace your inner East Village Hipster. Sometimes, there's an art gallery in the back room. If that's not your thing, Buck Hunter is an option.

    Bouncer who was picking up girls, trying to demonstrate power, kicked us out of the bar. Despite our efforts to explain the misunderstanding we were continuously getting a pedantic attitude in return.

    Better options in the east village. Expensive and kind of nasty doorman. It’s a service business fella, and a dive bar at that.

    DO NOT GO HERE. Horrible horrible bar. The bouncer attacked me, unprovoked. He pushed me down and every time I got up he pushed me down again. Manager refused to take responsibility. Go somewhere else
