The Iron Horse

Taking cues from Coyote Ugly, this FiDi saloon makes its bartenders the main event. The all-female cast of boozeslingers is known to perform feats of fire-blowing and hula-hooping while serving cheap swill like $2 Rolling Rocks—one of them may even pull you up on to the bar for a dance. A full menu includes typical bar fare, and if you go there on a Sunday, you can enjoy gratis burgers and hot dogs when you purchase a drink.

Not my most verbose review but here goes:

It's exactly what I came there for; cheap canned beer, paired with a shot for $6 and a hyper/friendly/cool bartender walking around talking to the barfolk.  She also intermittently performed on the bar and the swing, which was cool to see for the first time at the place but I'm sure moving my drink(s) constantly when it is super-crowded would get old quick.  I was there in the daytime on a day off, so I did some moderately nice drinking over the course of a few hours.  I had a pleasant buzz, a nice time, and would totally come back again, especially with some of my international friends just to show them a fun dive bar in Manhattan that won't break your wallet after a few rounds.
