    Impromptu wedding reception for my daughter. Staff was incredible. They even made a banner for them! Then the bartender played every song we asked him too. Amazing staff

    Easily the best bar I've been to in NYC. The bartenders absolutely the most warm, kind and friendly, the happy hour prices were incredible AND my beer came with a koozie & drink umbrella!

    Absolutely best bar I have ever been to. Rob and Phillip are awesome and make you feel right at home in a new city. Try the Pickle Back for an interesting new taste for your buds.

    Bartender Marty is so chill -sweet, attentive, and wry. Couldn't ask for a better one. Thanks for the beer cozie, guy. I cherish it. Good tunes and swill here.

    Came here on taco Tuesday and got an amazing deal of 3 tacos for $8. The happy hour specials here, which runs until 7 pm are also really good. Well drinks for $7.

    Like all of the Whisky franchise locations, the service sets them apart from other sports/beer bars. The bartenders will usually introduce themselves right away, and chat to make you comfortable.

    Tots, pickle backs, and bacon bowl may be the favs... But THE PORK TACOS were amazing!!!! Ask for a side of the salsa verde to add on... And you will be in awe. #epic

    One of the best bars in chinatown. Dope staff, great djs, friendly place for after work drinks or late night shenanigans. Tell Rob I said “hi!”😜

    Bartender charm: on fire! Introduced himself to everyone in my party. Also treated me to my first Spicy Back (Pickle Back Shot + Tabasco + pepperchino). Delish! Just the right hint of heat.

    There are a few great things to mention about this spot: Spicy Pickle Back shots, it's a JMU bar, the crowd is bro-y but not douche-y, & Rob the bartender is super nice and entertaining.

    Taco Tuesday, live music on Wednesday, heavenly tater tots, and an awesome bar staff. You can't go wrong with this place. Oh, and try a spicy back (spicy pickle back) if you've never experienced it. Read more

    This is my favorite bar. It gets loud in the evenings, so sit outside if it's warm enough. They make a great hot toddy!

    Came here one night with 2 friends we are all well above the age of 21. One of my friends forgot his ID in the hotel, so we weren't allowed service even though it was empty

    Their White Russians are pretty good but the Black Russians are even better! Once you have a Black Russian you never go back to a White Russian.

    A barfly's bar. Mingle with cops and locals. Eat a taco. Do a shot. Repeat until a) sad, b) no longer sad, c) birthday girl falls off bar.

    Pickleback shots and boxes of Jenga make this humble joint on Baxter Street a favorite among locals.

    Catch the game in their back patio area. One of the best bars in Chinatown. Jeremy would pass, but I'd take a pickle back. #Linsanity.
