  • This bar sucks
  • Try the Jake's Dilemma Brown Ale
  • Happy Hour here is from 3-8pm and everything is half price - on top of the everyday daily specials!
  • Play beer pong! 1. Show up 2. Add your name to the 3. Play!
  • Are the beer pong tables all filled up? Why not try the Gin Mill just a few steps north? All the way in the back are some tables that usually have shorter lines than Jake's!
  • Cheesy and always a fight going down... If you like to get drunk and hit on somebody's girl and get your head smashed in, this place is for you! Full of douchebags.
  • $1 beer Mondays what more could you ask for?
  • Some of the best prices in NY. $2.50 happy hour beer, $1 on Mondays, $4 you call it Weds... Living room is pretty classy for a "dive bar"
  • The bartenders and bouncers are the MOST fun anywhere. Be sure not to just ask for "a shot", you'll get warm house gin-- and deserve it.
  • Make sure you take a cigarette out before going outside lol
  • A typical Columbia Business School hangout. Which makes it great
  • do 3 shots of whiskey, play fooseball ........ repeat
  • Fantastic happy hour. $3 bloody marys, cheap beer. Beer pong, foosball table, and big buck hunter to kill some times cheaply.
  • How you offer a foursquare special, and the mngr. Said no! This place sucks!
  • The biggest dilemma here is obnoxious group of frat kids.
  • Fantastic happy hour specials and a cozy back room with sofas and book lined walls. Also, foosball , arcade games and beer pong. Dense and rowdy college crowd on weekends and late nights. Very relaxed
  • The drinks are cheap
  • Cheap Shots
  • Let's play beer pong or watch the game, bro!!! If this is not your thing you may want to go somewhere else.
  • Great spot for sitting outside and idling away a Friday night. Great deal for pitchers only $10 until 8 PM.
