Party like a rock star while spending money like a roadie with today's side deal to Angels & Kings in the East Village. For $9, you get any two drinks at this happening rock bar (excludes shots and free water). This hotspot is full of character, large spacious couches, and elusive Pete Wentz sightings. Take a break from dive bars and cricket tournaments to escape to a new atmosphere. There are often live bands, DJs, and untrained karaoke enthusiasts on hand to provide the soundtrack to your evening. Check the calendar for upcoming events or to see what day of the week it is.
Drinks cost up to $11, giving this Groupon a value of up to $22. On the beer side, order up a couple Guinnesses ($7) or two cans of PBR ($4), whose combined cost would be less than you paid for your Groupon, thus cementing your status as a high-roller. Grab a specialty mixed drink ($11) for you and another, or for your left and right hands. An XO is Bailey's Irish Cream mixed with Frangelico, or snag a Suicide Jack with Tanqueray, white wine, lime juice, and a splash of tonic and sugar. Class it up with a glass of wine ($7–$8), or order any classic this-and-that drink from the fully-stocked bar (prices will vary). You can purchase up to five Groupons, entitling you to 10 drinks for the price of five—like the common occurrence of birthing unexpected twins five times in a row.
Though reviews on Yelp vary depending on people's scene preference, remarks on the service are positive. Citysearchers love Angels & Kings New York, giving it four stars, and the bar has been featured in In Touch Weekly, People, UrbanDaddy, ClubPlanet and New York Press as a celebrity hot-spot as well:
- Launched in part as a hangout for the members of Fall Out Boy, The Academy Is... and Gym Class Heroes, Angels and Kings—or AK-47, as the kids are calling it—is your chance to sip a cheap bottle of beer and chat up attractive TRL aficionadas. The signature touches of the large and divey one-room bar are framed mug shots of the likes of Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, Lil' Kim and Frank Sinatra… – UrbanDaddy
- By weeknight the spot is decidedly more East Village than Page Six—gone are the weekend’s velvet ropes and rather than drawn, its drapes are cinched to offer passersby a glimpse inside the dark box of a bar. The dim glow comes from scarlet bulbs on garish chandeliers, which hang between a solid red wall and one of exposed brick. When the room isn’t slammed with the MTV crowd, it’s actually quite spacious with stools along the back bar and pillow-adorned banquettes and benches on both sides of the room. – ClubPlanet
- Everyone was really cool, the crowd was totally my type of people. The service and booze were great. The bartender made me and my friends several rounds of these "Hello Kitty" shots with vodka and Ty ku (which has a light-up bottle! So sick!). The decor is dark, but totally rad if you're into eclectic music and stuff. All in all, great visit. – FranKAY, Citysearch
