Interesting place

This place felt like I walked into a different world. Just really odd feeling upon entering. After some prior drinking and some thai food, half of our group had ended up at this location, so we decided to join them.

I remember walking in and it felt quiet, still, very odd. The people looked different, the bartenders looked different, it was just different. Nothing like Ninth Ward, where we had been hours before.

My group had a booth, it had little beads serving as curtains, I pla
...view moreyed with those beads, reminded me of growing up. The couches were some sort of velvety material, it was cool, but odd.

We hung out for a bit joking around. Â Eventually I went for a drink, I asked the bartender, I think he sort of nodded, walked away and quietly returned with the drink sometime later. I wasn't even sure if he heard me. Again everything was just odd... Drink was strong, no joke.

I thought it was a pretty cool place, I enjoyed it. I wonder if it's run by Vampires, because its the thought that pops in my mind when I re-envision my entrance and the atmosphere. If it is, can you can you guys make me one as well please?

Good time, I'd love to check it out again.

A cool Scottish pub

The best thing about this place is the atmosphere - dim lighting, comfortable seating, a gas fireplace, and faux old master paintings on the walls. This helps create a friendly, but not frantic vibe. There is a a so-so selection of tap beers and several Scottish whiskeys as well. The french fries, at $5.50 for a small plate, better be good - and they are, among the best I've ever had!

whiskey in the jar

The first time I strolled into this place with a friend of mine we both got the distinct impression it was a gay bar, which would have been fine...I guess. I thought they may have filled the void left by D**k's, the rather unsavory looking place cat-a-corner that is now closed. The L.A. barman, who has been sober 3 years, was wearing a kelt with no undershirt and some other tell tale signs that fit the s**t. After a conversation with our friend behind the bar he told us he chooses to w...view moreear the get-up as opposed to the boring dress code, which is also fine. Furthermore, we found the owner wins the Tony every year for costume design on Broadway and offered to make it for him free of charge. The original sentiment was put to rest.\r

This time around was my second time there and I was somewhat excited to perhaps greenlight it as an offical stomping grounds after a second rigorous (getting drunk) litmus test the place would have to endure. The story behind the bar was mildly entertaining, I was surprised to find. Involving Andrew Carnegie, wildcatting and the west. It has been challenge to find a foil to the usual drab/hokey nature of those things. After sometime our party ballooned to 10+ and I slunk out with a more intimate group of friends, but, the bill here was one of the great treats of the night. 3 mixed drinks, 3 beers, 1 glass of wine and 4 shots of Vodka came to $65 total. Averaging at about 6 bucks a drink. The decor has jumped on the whole Bourgeious Pig, Clover Club type atmosphere, but with the story to back it I enjoyed the setting as much as the price. In addition to a somewhat rave review the food looked pretty damn tasty and one of the few things I would recommend without actually trying.Good for mid-day beer or late night drinks. I can see myself coming here many more times.\r
\r
Crowd: Typical. Not too scene-e.\r
Drinks: Extensive whiskey selection, priced moderately, more than 2 beers/wines gets you a gold coin good for one of either.

Looks great, outdoor seating, limited menu

It's hard to figure if non-tourist bars will be full on July 3rd (no work the next day), or empty (New Yorkers leave town for the weekend.). As it turns out, at least here, neither. The small outdoor space in front was nearly full. The bar was crowded, but not packed. We took the large round table that lay half in, half out of the bar. It was empty.\r
The bartendress, was also the waitress, and seemed a bit frazzled. Most of the order-taking job was put on the busboy, who was fr

The food menu was extremely limited: fries, one salad, ""lamb sliders"" (Whitecastle size lamberger... tiny things, 2 for $9), pigs in a blanket (microwaved to perfection). That's it. The beer selection was slightly better... and Schoolbred's own lager wasn't bad at all. Visually, the bar was nice: lots of wood, slightly Gothic feel. Otherwise, it wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't extraordinary. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers
