The Globe

A glowing red sign beckons drinkers into this sprawling Irish saloon, housed in a 19th-century building that supposedly did time as a speakeasy. Inside, well-poured pints of Guinness and Boddingtons, a decent whiskey lineup, and some welcome nods to the past—a low tin ceiling and filament bulbs that bathe the barroom in warm light—deliver on the Globe’s promise as a gussied-up Gramercy watering hole. But two sports-dominated flat-screens and a blaring pop soundtrack (Ja Rule and Miley Cyrus?) spoil the mystique. Famished drinkers should skip the equally uninspiring pub menu—the pedestrian “Globe Burger” came with a bone dry bun and a bland smothering of mushrooms.

I haven't been on the weekends but for an evening weekday drink, its not crowded and an easy place to grab drinks and just hang with friends. Bartenders are pretty friendly and chatty!

I really try hard not to judge a bar based on the type of crowd within but the crowd inside the globe was just so incredibly douchey and awful that I couldn't help but factor it into my review. 

While there is a large dance floor, cheapish drinks and overall pretty good music. HOWEVER all of this is seriously overshadowed by the fact that every single person inside this venue is a vineyard vines wearing asshole. I won't go into more details but I would just try an avoid the globe for like ever.
