Unfortunate/Strange Experience

My boyfriend and I have been coming here for years. Last night, we came here for a friend's birthday with a group of people. One of my girlfriends ordered a drink from the bartender and he berated her for checking her cell phone. She was just checking to see if someone had called her, and explained this to him, but he still went off on her. I still can't comprehend it...it was out of nowhere and the rudest thing I'd ever seen from a bartender. Like he just felt he could because he...view more'd worked there for so long. It was so uncomfortable, and so unnecessary. This wasn't an old-school NYC attitude from a genuine New Yorker. This was just flat out arrogance from someone who, for years, had served us. It was really disheartening and unfortunately we won't be back.view less

Great bartenders, great place to have a beer

Nicest bartenders around, guinness tap, PBR cans, snack mix, cats running around, films on the big screen...a breath of fresh air in manhattan. Sometimes can fill up with knuckleheads, but have some beers and take off when it gets crowded.

Good local scene

I think this place is also called Tom and Jerry's. The artwork is cool and its worth stopping by to what's its changed to, but that's about the whole decor unless you like punch bowls used for ""Tom & Jerry's"" aka egg nog from what I have heard. As you can see I have spent a lot of time there and its a great place to tie one on early...

Not Bad

The bartenders here are awesome, the best I've met anywhere. The jukebox is a decent mix of favorites and variety. The crowd, although still better than most, has become more trendy than it used to be. It's certainly the kind of place to become a regular.

Bartenders here are great - the nicest I've seen in NYC... the first time I was there, I was treated like a regular - it was great....

LONG BAR, GOOD JUKE BOX

this place is cool, crowd can be kinda lame but good place to get a pint and chill. bar is long and they have NBA hoops on the TV which is cool. good juke box, long bar, never wait in line, easy to get bar stool, bar tenders have no attitude, another +. good place if you have a crew and want a table. usually not crowded, location is good. good place to start night on bar crawls. AC cranks in the summer. funky art displays in back cool too. Whats the deal with all the Tom and Jerry stuf...view moref? Good place to get a guiness or black and tan.view less

Neighborhood Bliss...

Although Nolita and the surrounding area have somewhat succumbed to ""the trendy"", this bar is anything but (including its patrons). You can go any night of the week and always find fun, down-to-earth people, a relaxed atmosphere, and jovial bartenders. They never skimp on the drinks, either. Another plus is the art...a variety of interesting installations that rotate regularly (one of my favorites included multitudes of hanging birdcages enveloping the entire bar). Also of note--...view moreGREAT jukebox.view less
