excellent – This is a great place. I thought I walked into the twilight zone, my straight hometown bar with cosmos and better music. The wait staff was so awesome, very nice and made the rounds often. Very diverse crowd, all ages and types.
If You're Not a Chelsea Boy – Out of all the 8th (and off 8th) Ave places, this one is comfortable for all kinds of men - from the 20- to the 50-somethings. It's easy to find a seat in the back, have a conversation and a genuinely good time. Happy Hour lasts a long time and the waiters are genuinely good-looking and friendly (imagine that). And yes, you can watch an occasional couple make out in the back, so not all is lost. Pool table's fun too!
barracuda's still the best... – it's the closest thing to "sans attitude" that chelsea has to offer... pretty, quasi-hipster boys (and men) chilling out in the donna reed meets power puff girls back lounge complete with plenty of laughing, smiling, and eye-flirting... things are a little cruisier up front amongst the glowing tables and mirrored walls... the bartenders are usually beefy and offer above-average friendliness. great shows with flotilla and shequida (dj girlina spins it out!), great drinks, great atmosphere - the so-called big boys (xL, sbny, g, etc.) should take some pointers...
