"Fourth drink "rule"" New York City Local Custom Tip by graememooney

New York City Local Customs: 433 reviews and 405 photos

You might notice at a lot of the pubs/bars in town that if you have ordered three drinks/rounds, the bartender will tap the bar when serving up your fourth - that's on the house!! It's great until you try to take advantage of it :P ..... try getting to your eighth and twelth and...... but it sure makes you feel good that they appreciate your custom.
