Dress Code: just come in with or with out them it didnt matter
Fun place...filthy. Bras and thongs hang above the bar. Cheap beer all night. Only country music on the juke. Wild crowd. Everytime I go, there are lots of Irish folks...don't really know why. The bartenders are scantily clad and dance on the bartables. Buy them shots. They will hook you up.
Dress Code: Wear clothes that you don't care about too much.
Hate clubs and like cheap beer? Its small, plays crappy music, but has cheap beer ($5 pitchers). It was a favorite college hangout.
It's a fun place but it can turn into a sausage-fest sometimes.
Dress Code: whatever
If you want a Coyote Ugly type place but don't want to be mobbed, the Village Idiot is a less-crowded but still just as trashy alternative. I have never not had a great time there. Ladies, bring an extra bra to hang on the bar. Check out this link http://www.nycbp.com/bartenders/bar10/ for a right-on review.
Dress Code: Daisy dukes, flannel, jeans, anything that screams 'white trash'. Whatever it is, you're probably going to get beer all over it, so don't wear anything that's dry-clean only.
This is the only bar I've ever been to where it's impossible to have a bad time. It's a good spot for starting (or finishing) a wild night out in NY. Go with a big group of people, listen to country tunes, and drink $1.50 PBR's right from the can. If you have a shot the waitresses will usually have one too.
My sister says it's a meat market, but I don't believe her.
They used to have a tank of live goldfish here that you could slurp down with your beer.
Dress Code: Dress down
