"Burger joint or party central?" Pop Burger Tip by acemj

Pop Burger, New York City: 3 reviews and 2 photos


Wow, this place is hard to categorize. Yeah, there's music, dancing, people watching, nightclub-like characterstics, and it's an adult spot. In fact, during the day, it's a burger joint out front, but at night when you pass through the saloon style swinging doors, it's a posh, hip Chelsea hangout.

The night we were there, it was full of trendy New Yorkers. Plenty of beautiful people: models, actors and the like. There is a room in back with a pool table, but you'll have no chance to actually play pool back there on a weekend night. Interestingly, people were using it as the smoking room, which is a major coup in New York since technically it's illegal to smoke in an indoor public place.

Be prepared to pay too much for drinks (it's the atmosphere you're paying for). My buddy paid a cool 12 bucks for a Knob Creek on the rocks.

Dress Code: You can wear jeans, but in general people were dressed very fashionably.
