The manager, Devin Vilardi, is awful. He’s rude, arrogant, and on an insane power trip. I was here on Friday, 15th 2013 and at around 11PM I was on my way back from the restroom, but stopped in an empty area to stand and send a text. He came over and told me I had to go, but when I asked whether I could just finish sending this, he said “no” and that “this isn’t Park Slope”. I asked what he meant, and he stated Moby lives in Park Slope, and that I look like him (which, granted, I do). When I exclaimed how that was kind of rude and unwarranted, he asked why I would care since I wasn’t drinking anything. I then replied that I was in fact there to drink with friends, but he then shouted that “he doesn’t have time for this” and asked a security guard to escort me out. People who treat patrons like this do not deserve their jobs. This place is nothing special, there are a million bars on the same street that are just like this, and it is not worth supporting.
