    Can you handle the sugar challenge? Spend a day and go through every single specialty drink on the menu and level up with +3 diabetes!

    The OG of NYC tiki bars. Order whatever looks good, you can't go wrong. Bonus points for getting to take the mug home with you (if you want).

    The bartenders are great, and so are the drinks. Collect all the tiki mugs if you can: its a great excuse to try every drink they make. Good music too! And did i mention the great bartenders?

    I freakin love this bar. The cocktails are fun. The atmosphere is odd & entertaining. I bring all NYC visitors here that want a uniquely New York experience.

    One of the last OG East Village dives. Have a tiki drink, see your friends band, you’ll have a great time.

    If you like dark & stormy's, try their version: the stormy skull! Little plastic monkeys that are added hanging off the side of your glass are a plus!

    Laid back tiki bar with a punk rock/rockabilly/psychobilly crowd. They have a huge back room that they show movies in and give out free popcorn. Photobooth op too.

    Father Vincent is at the door. Respect him and the Otto's staff and musical talent, and you will have the time of your life! Exotic drinks and tiki-decor cup takeaways are a real deal! Music reigns.

    Tiki mugs are great for coffee, too, just sayin' (especially the Yorick-esque skull one). Steal 'em from the bar and take 'em home with you! Oh, and look out for the tattooed "Rebel of Wall Street."

    Cool spot if you are local or passing through. The best times to go are on Thursday for Move Your Mule ska night or once a month of Fridays they have their rockabilly themed night.

    Grab a Singapore Sling and get your picture taken in the Photo Booth. Check out Cine Meccanica on Tuesday nights for trashy biker/classic car themed movies.

    Don’t leave this bar without ordering The Slice of Heaven. Only available for a half hour starting every Saturday night around 2:30 a.m., deep friend bacon and a shot of your choice. Nuff said, right?

    Cash only. Otto's Octane is tasty and the bartender has a heavy hand. The place reminds me a lot of Bourbon st. in New Orleans

    This place is lovably weird. Live music and tiki drinks. Age of the crowd ranges dramatically.

    Definitely need to catch "No Name & a Bag of Chip"...the best stand up comedy show ever on Fridays - 2x a month. It's free with no drink minimum.

    Live music kicks off around 9pm so if you're not a fan of hardcore punk rock, consider coming up with a Plan B.

    If and when you come order pang's punch it looks ridiculous and you will laugh when you get it but you won't be able to stop drinking them all night

    They have one of the few remaining old-school photobooths in the city. It's expensive, though -- $5!
