OMG CRAZY BAR TENDER – The place smelled like urine, it was humid and musty, and you are being served by a crazy bar tender. It would have been fine to hang out but some people just hate their jobs. So,
Ms. Bar Tender: I know you're life is miserable and you can't help it that you are just angry at the world.. but seriously leave your craziness at home, cause the next person you f with would not walk away. ;) .. piece of advise.
Greenpoint's youthful spot for brews and single malts. – Huge windows provide an impressive corner view for this neighborhood hangout, which features an oak bar, wooden floor beams and a pressed-tin ceiling, as well as a sidewalk cafe. In addition to a choice of 10 beers on draft, nine wines by the glass and nine single malts, the menu also offers a limited variety of pressed sandwiches. Greenpoint and Williamsburg residents in their 20s, 30s and 40s make up most of the crowd.
great place to chat... – Very chill place. Old world pub. Great selection. Quite though interspersed with a nice tunes (geered towards the Greenpoint and W'burg crowd).
OK bar to meet for a quick drink and then move on to somewhere else. that is about it.
Other then the Guinness and the wanna be Irish that get sloppy drunk here- I would not consider this an Irish pub by any means. At least not a good one.
Very Average... – Not much originality overall, very average service, no food , bar has that been there done that quality- it is like 500 other bars in NY..... Woodwork is nice and good selection of beer but all in all this place is nothing special....
Welcome to G P. – A breath of fresh air to the bar scene,these guy's put the "D" back into drinking.
A REAL New York Bar! – Greenpoint, a trendy neighborhood bordering Williamsburg, has, what my friends and I consider, a true New York Bar. From the wood floors to the tin ceiling to no tv's--it's all about drinking and talking here, folks. Great Bartenders and decent prices make this a worthwhile visit as a walk from Williamsburg or a ride on the God-forsaken G Train.
