  • Warble a vodka-soaked version of "Mack the Knife" at the piano bar. Do it.
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. If they made a sequel to Fargo, the first scene would be set here.
  • SIt by the piano and enjoy singing along! Be wary, they make cocktails really strong here!
  • Classic Polish food and the melt-in-your mouth short ribs. Corky and Phil will take care of you at the bar, or sit in one of the booths for your plate of pierogi and pickled herring. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Fuck Jay J. Cheating whore doesn't set foot past the door.
  • Dropsteppers make some reggae jams on monday nights from 8-11. It is a must do.
  • Awesome polka band every Friday and Saturday night. :) seriously. Fun!
  • Get here early... Takes about 62 minutes before they take your order!
  • Super unique. Reminds me of something out of The Lawrence Welk show. Got to sing "Fever" many moons ago in front of good friends and adjacent to a sweet cosmo.
  • Buy Czechvar for all your mates and get crazy in the photo booth.
  • Voted top 10 Martinis! The bartender might even be the same one working that first night, and the well-poured martinis most certainly are still here.
  • If you're the driver just get a water. Glasses of coke are about 20 bucks.
  • Arrive early, have some beers on the polka side, build courage to sing out loud on the piano side.
  • This place reminds me of a little bar in the business distict of frankfurt, about three blocks west of the main train station
  • Drink the O.K. beer! (Okocim brewery Poland)
  • Like stepping back in time. Plus great people watching.
  • If you order the Nordeaster martini - upgrade the vodka from Smirnoff. The Polish blackberry is delicious but the cheap vodka counteracts it entirely. Trust me.
  • Go to the piano side and order a dry gin martini on the rocks. The mustachioed bartender will nod approvingly and you will feel celestially validated.
  • Classiest karaoke ever.
  • One of the coolest places ever- a cross between Goodfellas and Mad Men, the coolest lemon drop shot ever and a photo booth!
