The Village Idiot, New York City
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.
i went there i was staying down town for a talk show iwent around the cornner to bar it sucked i asked weres a good down to earth bar with a abetter prace whyb pay 20$ for abeer when you could pay buck fifty it was great had at a van coach seat in the cornner i had the time of my life in the village idiot and had planed on going back and they closed the best hidden spot in nycity
Dress Code: just come in with or with out them it didnt matter
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
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
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.
