Free Drinks and Luxurious Transport

A newish bar on the Upper West Side (alas, two blocks short of being in Morningside) has a novel concept, reports The Feedbag.

Show a receipt for your cab ride there and they’ll pay for your ride– in the form of a bar tab!  Now, finally there’s a reason to take a cab home after a long night downtown:  Even more free drinks.  Bwog can’t imagine that this promo is permanent, so better take advantage of it while it lasts.

The Village Pourhouse is on Amsterdam between 108th and 109th.  The Village location is at 3rd Avenue and 11th Street.

Bwog’s previous review of the Pourhouse has much more information, lest we repeat ourselves.

  • looks like says:

    @looks like they’re not cashing in on columbia students as much as they hoped, so now they’re marketing outside the area.

  • pourhouse fan? says:

    @pourhouse fan? um … can someone elaborate on this? slash confirm? i think this post is rather cryptic.

  • link explains it.. says:

    @link explains it.. seems like a fantastic deal. What is their policy on good fake id’s? I think I recall hearing that real id’s were turned away.

  • hmm says:

    @hmm Hold on. I travel from Brooklyn, paying like $25 in cab fare, and I get $25 in free drinks? Really?

    1. idk says:

      @idk if it’s cold, it may be worth it.

  • what if says:

    @what if someone took a cab from New Jersey.

    And does it make sense for a CU student to take a cab 8 blocks?

  • ... says:

    @... that’s a pretty sweet deal, it’s a pity that the bar is a load of bollocks.

  • the way to do it says:

    @the way to do it is to take a cab from downtown or Brooklyn after you’ve been out, grab a few drinks and then walk the eight blocks home..

    1. no... says:

      @no... the way to do it is to not be poor, go to classier establishments, and never even consider taking a common taxi. commoners…

  • this is what happens says:

    @this is what happens when a bar in the area is hard on fake ids

    1. yeah says:

      @yeah they have no one to blame but themselves for their poor business

    2. haha says:

      @haha word.

  • jewish says:

    @jewish im going to pay $2 for a subway ride to brooklyn and then take a cab back.

  • suggestion says:

    @suggestion How about a limousine?

  • Too old for Bwog says:

    @Too old for Bwog This will never compare to the old SoHa, which was on that site. Oh, the sketchiness, the memories.

  • Not an econ major says:

    @Not an econ major but this is only a good deal if you were going to take a cab anyway, especially since you’ll likely decide to buy more drinks than those on the free tab.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
