Ended up here on Wednesday evening for cocktails, and i liked it! Drinks are $2 off, so makes for a pretty reasonable priced HH:) This is a sexy lounge with a Roaring 1920s-inspired interior, black leather banquettes, and paintings of pinup girls. The only snafu is the service could be better. We waited over 10 mins for the waitress to come take our cocktail order, but ended up hitting the bar ourselves:(

I have no clue why my friends like this place so much, probably because there's a crap load of people to dance with. The music is alright, the drinks are terrible and WAY overpriced. I only come here when I can get on the list for an event that Indierotica/Shaw Promotion puts together (mainly DJ Jess or Alex Malfunction), other than that its pretty boring and sweaty. If you're in any of the other rooms however, there's a ton of creeps just waiting to latch onto you - I'm seriously warning you ladies, go here with a group of friends and you'll be safe, just make sure you all stick together cause there are some freaks here. Its like this with any club, but with Webster Hall, I cant even walk TWO FEET without someone sneaking up behind me and holding on (I actually had a guy latch onto me for about two minutes, trying to dance with me as I kept attempting to walk away) As for the staff, they were pretty friendly, the bouncers do a good job of pulling the weirdos off you if you look like you aren't having a good time. The doormen aren't jerks either, they were actually pretty polite on the way in and the way out. If you're going here for an event, its cool, if not? Well, I know pepper spray is frowned upon, but seriously, if I could get away with bringing it in there I probably would.

The quality of this place definitely depends on the night you go, who you're going to see, and who's running the show. I gotta admit though, I always have a good time here. There's no other venue like it to catch live shows and be able to actually see who's performing. The crowd definitely varies based on the night, but if you're open to it--this place doesn't disappoint. (Good luck with the parking, however. Be prepared to drop big bucks at the Fifth and Mission Garage.)

My husband and I had dinner tonight at j. Timothy's formerly Cooke's Tavern. We had a very delightful experience. I am very interested in the history of Cooke's Tavern. I have tried to find info on the net without any success. Any help???
