"We love Fiddlesticks. Good beers, and an authentic Irish atmosphere and decent wines by the glass. Its a mad-house on the weekend but that's par for the course and great if you're in the mood for it. Extremely friendly bar staff, excellent food and fun music make it the place we like to start and/or end an evening out. These guys know how to run a NY Irish bar (and believe me I've been to more than a few). Check out the ladies behind the bar as well!"

"Fiddlesticks is great for singing loud and drinking lots. The vodka flows freely on Friday and Saturday nights. The place gets packed. There is little room for walking, but there always seems to be room for dancing and singing to every song played. Get there around10:30p.m. to find a spot and you'll be happy until closing time!

Good pub grub and Irish fare. Fun for groups (they have nice large tables) -- the wait staff is very patient with big tables.

Great meeting place before dinner before a night of Village barhopping. Outdoor seating for warm weather months.

Tons of room -- just try going to the ladies room and you will see how many nooks & crannies it has!"

Comments - Absolutely one of the best bars in the world! A great West Village Irish bar - loads of fun. Highly recommend. - J.M.B.

Large multi-room old pub. Some very interesting old decor. Reasonable prices, friendly and efficient Irish bartenders. For a twist, (very modern) bathrooms are upstairs. - T.K.

Probably the best kept secret in Manhattan, this bar is more hang out and have fun than a meat market, but the guys are really hot! Staff are very funny and entertaining and there always seems to be celebrities in the place. - P.B.

One of the few places in the area to catch the live action of Liverpool Premiere League Football. Stop in during any match and you'll feel like you've been teleported across the pond. Food is also good for the price you pay. - J.K.

Fiddlesticks has numerous nooks where you can grab a table and read a book without being interrupted — except when one of the great-looking bartenders pulls you a pint. Happy Hour lasts until 8 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and $3 will get you any drink you desire (expect martinis and shots).

Bustling Irish Pub
Posted by qtgurljny on 05/23/2006

Fiddlesticks is pretty great for people-watching and bumping into. The pub pretty large with a decent amount of space. However, it gets packed on the weekends with a mostly collegiate, recently post-collegiate crowd looking for some beers and fun. Overall, a great place to be if you're looking for some simple fun.
