Great place to go for any Pats, Sox, Bruins, or Michigan fans. Been there a few times, pretty always for Patriots games when we can't get them on cable because it's NY. Definitely would recommend for anyone in a similar situation to me, a New Englander in NYC. Makes the game so much fun to be around other NE fans. Beer is pretty cheap, so is the food (hit or miss). During Washington game last year, the owner gave me and my friend two free beers each and free shots because it was a little packed. Awesome environment for Pats fans, but get there early on game day because it gets packed fast. Pretty much impossible to get in during playoff games btw.
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.
