  • Not a strip club.
  • Tip the staff well. They are great!
  • Friendly bartenders.
  • This is a nice spot to go after work. Reasonable drink prices, solid food and good music. Try the fish & chips, you won't be disappointed. Added perk: it's usually not overcrowded.
  • Best bartenders in Manhattan. Ask Mike for a irish ice tea or a backpacker.
  • Mike.. Sweetest bartender for the after work Friday night crowd ..
  • I recommend you the Grilled Marined Chicken Sandwich #JustPerfect #Victory #ILoveYouNYC #ILoveYouJesus
  • Expensive drinks. Rude and unhelpful waitresses. Mediocre food.
  • This place is awesome. I cannot recomnend jim and mike any higher.
  • Really nice space, surprisingly chill for its location. Staff is friendly and its always lo key. Plenty of TVs too!
  • Great staff and beer
  • Get the fish and chips! They give you a delicious meaty filet
  • Portobello wrap is tasty
  • Fat Blue played here was epic
  • BRAND NEW, just opened! Formerly Purnima Restaurant, now gutted and re-done to be a Bar and Grill.
  • Its a bar in the area, nothing special but decent amount of seating, $20 card minimum.
  • Great spot for actors!
  • Chicken curry was not bad, but very disappointing.
  • Nice atmosphere. Friendly bartenders. But its $8 for Stella on draft. That makes it not worth it, even for Times Square prices
  • Daily specials, friendly staff and a good selection of beers.
