Four-level sports bar drawing pre- & post-game crowds for booze, dancing, Skee-Ball & a 14-ft. TV.- Google
"We got the the bar at about 9:45 and got in with no problem."
"The staff is insanely rude, owner is shady and the crowd is complete trash."

I just went there 2 weeks ago for the first time. Overall, not the Greatest Bar. The bouncers were incredibly rude, not so much to me, but to most people I saw them interact with. The line was actually long created an extended wait time to get in, even though a decent amount of people kept leaving so I can't imagine they were at capacity. It almost seemed like they just wanted to have the appearance of a line outside. Food and drinks were pretty overpriced and the waitstaff was similarly disinterested in making the experience fun. The place is actually much smaller than I initially thought and it became very crowded on the dance floor. The saving grace was that the DJ played very good music so I'll give a second star.

Overly priced. Fun to watch games and hang out though and right by the Garden. Has good music at night but there is always a cover.

Dead on a Saturday Night. I'd rate less than a 1 if I could.

Jacket was stolen with keys and phone inside. Upon closing owners showed no mercy looking for jacket and was forced to sleep in waiting room of police station as a last resort.

There is only 1 good thing to say about this bar! I had a bachelorette party planned at a different bar in Boston and a week before the party that bar told me they no longer could accommodate us. After I was done with my panic I came across the greatest bar. They seemed really nice said no problem they would help us out. I got the 2 carat package which on their website says for $25 you get no cover, line privileges, 2 drink tickets per person, and a swag bag for the bride-to-be. We got the the bar at about 9:45 and got in with no problem. I asked about the drink tickets and was told to come back at 10:30. We went to the second floor to hang out for a bit and around 10:30 left me group to go ask for our drink tickets. The very rude woman at the door handed me two tickets. I asked if I could get all the tickets for my group and she said no I only got 2 tickets and they had given out a bunch of tickets already. I told her I paid $150 to ensure drink tickets for my group and she shoved me off on another guy by the door. I told him my problem and he told me that money was for the cover!(the cover way $10) I told him no I paid $150 for the 2 carat deal and he said well we don't have you down for drink tickets and I kept arguing with him. For $150 I should have gotten the drink tickets for my group of 5. Finally they shoved the tickets in my hands and rushed me away. 20 minutes later we rudely got kicked off the 2nd floor for a private party with no warning. The only saving grace of the night was the brunette female bartender on the 3rd floor. She congratulated the bride-to-be and kept serving us drinks and smiles all night. If it had not been for her I would have rated this bar a ZERO! Very Rude and I will never go here again! We didn't even get the swag bag for the bride but I was so sick of the people at the door I didn't even want to talk to them again!!!!!

4 Bars with 1 kitchen and 1 cook. Each bar holds at least 200 people. After 2 hours, I nver got my food and barely got drink service despite sitting at the bar. Poorly planned.

I originally wanted to give this a one out of five because of some really bad experiences here. People really trash the place especially the bathrooms, the drinks are overpriced and it takes quite a while to get them, especially as a guy. The bouncers can be obnoxious, again, especially to guys, and people tend to get too drunk here. The upstairs is kinda nice though, if you can get up there. So that's the one redeeming factor. That being said the name is just ironic in my mind because it would be my last choice in the area.
