6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J.H. Carroll on January 16, 2003
Format: Paperback
As a drinker for a good two-thirds of my years, I was heartened to discover this lovely guidebook. It made me want to see my native New York again, to rediscover its sweet old barfly haunts, with their sticky counters and slanted floors--and pour down some potables at a few new watering holes.
Ms. Mitchell has an keen eye for detail and a fine taste for parts of the city that New York-based books and movies rarely depict: its seedy, soused underbelly. Does Woody Allen ever wash up at the Blarney Cove? Could Tom Wolfe trick fellow drinkers at the Sly Fox? Would you rather a Blue & Gold Budweiser or a "Maid in Manhattan"? Answer? A resounding no.
This book in engaging, informative, illuminating, and voluble, a veritable Zagat's for the demimonde. I tip my hat--and raise my glass--to you.

Format: Paperback
A funny read- and a great bar guide. I'd been to a few of the bars in the book before purchasing, and I found the book to be accurate. I also found some hidden gems I'd never heard of- it is now my mission in life to become a regular at a few of the bars.
Highly recommended.

Forget Zagat's, this is the New York City Nightlife guide you really need. If you're tired of $12 beers, snobby cosmo-drinking New Yorkers, and waiting outside velvet ropes, check out the bars Mitchell has tried and tested--places where you can hang your hat, settle in on a bar stool and have a good time with _real_ friends. Not the imbibing type? You'll still get a kick out of Mitchell's crisp writing and funny drinking tales.
