This is my go-to spot for pre-game shots and beers to get you lit for a concert at Terminal 5 or a late night cap and munch after all the dancing. It's a bit of a sporty college kinda place but it gets the job done! And it's cheap! Please reference the name and do all three here along with the waffle fries which are perfect to slide into their White Castle size sliders that are made with Pat Lafrieda beef! Let's do this!


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.
