    Great bar and even better people. My iPhone was stolen here and the manager went out of his way to replace it for me. I've been coming here for years and will continue to do so. Cheers.

    Super cute! Great vibe, and they have rosé cider which is always a good time. Only thing in terms of bar snacks is pickles/olives/the like, so hit dollar pizza or Vanessa’s next door for your carb fix

    Great cocktails; great list of small batch beers. I was meeting friends but it seemed to be a great place for dates

    Great place to catch up with friends, love the ambience and solid cocktails and beer selection. Also need to have a pickleback shot, one of the better ones I've had.

    Such a cute date spot with live jazz music and $5 picklebacks to lighten the mood. If you like beer, they have a ton of options on draft which was unexpected. Def one of my new go-to spots.

    The Bentley pickleback is spicy, srirachy, and savory. Just bring a mint (or 5) if you're tryna closetalk to some prospects after

    Fun relaxed atmosphere with an upscale vibe. Yummy drinks and order a pickleback! It's the signature drink, or should I say shot, at the bar and its delicious

    I don't think people are getting it. This is a great place with great beer at reasonable prices (and sometimes with specials). There are still way too many empty chairs whenever I have been here.

    Discovered this place during hurricane Sandy last year. Open with candlelight and had a live band that week playing an acoustic set that had all the diehards coming in for a beer and a dance

    Loveeee. Thursday nights they have a live funk band. So great. I like the regular pickle backs vs spicy but that's just me. U should just get both & decide for yourself! :)

    My favorite spot for picklebacks. For $5, you can't beat it. Get a slice at Joe's afterwards.

    Good drinks, good energy -not too quiet, not too loud. They get busy on weekends, so you may have to stand or wait for a table.

    Beautifully re-done from the ground up. Beautiful sunset views of the tip of Manhattan - and it never seems to be crowded with tourists at that time.

    Amazing live music, cool atmosphere and great drinks. Definitely go here for a classy night out. I'd recommend getting the Old Fashioned to start.

    Warm, dark, plenty of energy. Lots to enjoy here. A younger crowd a little prone to overconsumption and minor mistakes at times though.

    Ask for a hickory pickleback and/or triple back. Also, Anna is the bomb server, treat her well!

    Somehow upscale, local, hipster, laid back, authentic, friendly, romantic, and fun all at the same time.

    This place has a shiny, rectangular object hanging above the bar... and it's not a TV!! Perfect spot for a cool date. (P.s. it's a mirror)

    Try a pickle back. Not every day that you chase down a shot of Jameson's with pickle juice!

    Chill bartenders, a backdrop of b&w films played to mellow music. Do a spicy pickleback ($5).
