    Comfortable Neighborhood Feel
    I still like coming to this place, especially when I'm in Chelsea. It's a good place to meet up with friends and it's kind of an "ole reliable". There's really a dwindling amount of options in Chelsea these days and this is certainly a contrast to G. G is polished and a bit standoffish, Barracuda just feels inviting albeit a bit rough around the edges.

    Super nice bartender. I visited on a week night recently during a drag show. It was a great experience. The clientele were friendly enough, the performer was incredible. I wish I remembered her name.
