Ok so let's not bullshit each other here. This is not where you're taking a first date. This is not where you're celebrating a big raise. 


1 2 3 Burger Shot Beer has one purpose and one purpose only: get your buzz on before a show at nearby Terminal 5. 


Everything you need to know about this bar is in the name. Mini sliders are a buck. Well shots are 2. And all drafts are 3. Boom, that's it. You won't find anybody calling themselves a "mixologist" anywhere in the vicinity.


I cannot fathom a single reason you'd venture to this part of town (10th ave and 50th st.) other than to go to Terminal 5 (unless you're buying a car...), so to have a dirt cheap spot to hit up before the show is a huge win. 


People may complain about the cleanliness or the poor service, but those people are assholes. 1 2 3 is what it is. No frills, no facade. Just an easy, chill spot to slug a few down without busting your wallet. And in that arena, it succeeds.
