Avidens Z.For what it is, this spot is excellent. Yes, it's a dive bar, accept it. Lets check the amenities at this supposedly "bland" bar. A mounted hippo head. Cheap beers on tap and bottle including Guinness on tap . Free hot dog with every drink. Free popcorn. A 99 cent pizza place across the street. Well lit, but not annoyingly bright. Plenty of infra-red security cams for all you fraidy cats and would-be criminals in addition to a 24hr NYPD security booth literally right outside the place. Low key security who get the job done when need be, but are almost invisible otherwise. A wildly varied clientele in terms of age, sex and personality. Oh and um, last but not least, attractive bartenders wearing bikinis all day every day. In addition, all the bartenders are unique personalities and very friendly unless you're a fool or a nasty drunk (tip them well). All in all a great find in Hell's kitchen for a quick beer before your bus or train as well as for a night of drunken madness. You'll have more fun here than at any similar bar in the vicinity.
