This is probably the first all negative review of a bar here at NYC Dives. What an awful place. The pizza, though free, is second rate to Capone’s, takes way to long to get to you, and then its not really warm. The crowd just came from some NYU dorm, most likely theater as they were trying to fill auditoriums with each of their voices. Drinks were not that cheap. The woman at the bar was a bucket of attitude (screw service since I’m cute) as was the fellow behind it. The bar reminded me of people who call Hells Kitchen “Clinton” and drink there. Just awful.

Décor (1/5) – Makes Miami Vice look like high fashion. Feels like a sterile fast food restaurant.

Crowd (1/5) – Loud and obnoxious

Drinks (2/5) – Nothing special price, selection or pour wise

Dive Factor (1/5) – Clean cut hipsters. The one silver lining is that you want to go to a much better bar to dive in and forget your awful experience. (that bar is conveniently Moto which is a walk down Union and the next review!)
