The Rook top notch LES beer jointStumbled across this LES gem. Had plans to meet up with friends elsewhere but made it homebase on a Wednesday night. My goal was to have one of each of their 50 beers offered but only made it to 19. The bar tender was friendly and our conversation quickly shifted to the English Preimership (soccer). A tape replay was on the tele. The eye candy was on point for a Wednesday and the beats were friendly to my ear. Jukebox included the bravery, the stones, neil young, and wolfmother.
Great Vibe on Friday NightsI was haviing dinner with one of my girlfriends when I decided I wanted dessert. She convinced me to skip it; instead, she took me over to The Rook, where the bartender was more than happy to combine Lindeman's Rasberry Framboise with the unbelievable double chocolate stout on tap. It was absolutely amazing. Another bartender at The Rook had recommended this for my friend the week before. The place is great. Too many things to try in one night though!
Dirty, Dingy and Depressing.Walked in here and soon afterward walked out....no crowd, expensive and bad attitude from the bartender! Will never go again!
A Clean, Clean Bar!Oh no! Looks like someone has a personal vendetta out on The Rook. Let's grow up, people. I was so surprised to read that ONE negative comment because I've been there 4 times since it opened in August and I find it to be one of the cleanest bars I've been in in the East Village. In fact, the bathrooms are among the best I've used in the area! The bartenders were busy, but fine. I was served quickly and respectfully.
