  • My local dive. Though its not truly divey. Excellent food. Lots of homo bros with hockey sticks hanging around. Don't really trust men with clubs of any kind. Bartender talent.
  • Staff are assholes, bathroom is filthy, service is unacceptable.
  • The Bluepoint Blueberry ale is...remarkable
  • Wait staff could use some Xanax, very salty.
  • Don't overwhelm the hostess (this is very easily done)
  • WiFi password is their phone number (as of 7/9/10)
  • If you bring a group of 30 they might just let you take up the whole back room
  • The Chelsea saloon, partly owned by Perfect Storm author Sebastian Junger, is where the art world congregates for beers and shots after a hard day of gallery hopping. (Try the turkey burger!)
  • The sweet potato fries are to die for!
  • On Wednesdays they have a Beer and Whiskey special and you might be able to spot a Gossip Girl actor
  • Try the Six Points Global Warmer. Very tasty beer!
  • Nice staff, relaxed atmosphere, good prices, a great time!
  • Best happy hour spot in Chelsea. $4 pints from 4-8pm and super chill and friendly bartenders.
  • wi-fi password: 505west23 - via
  • Open Late- try their summer beer or their summer lovin' drinks.
  • Best sweet potato fries ever.
  • Beer good. Music very no good. Unless you're in a frat. Then music really really good.
  • Patio is very dog friendly, just make sure you dog is friendly as there are often several pups chillin.
  • Check out their weekly Monday Readings. They've become a Chelsea institution!
  • Bison burger w/ goat cheese = amazing.
