The Poughkeepsie Journal reviews the Slaughtered Lamb in Greenwich Village, New York.
At first glance, the Slaughtered Lamb Pub in Greenwich Village looks like any other British-style bar.
But then there’s the skeleton hanging by a dungeon entrance — and you know this place is a little bit different.
Owned by the same people who run The Jekyll & Hyde Club uptown, Slaughtered Lamb has just a few touches that make the theme come alive.
I love The Jekyll & Hyde Club and the Slaughtered Lamb despite their cheesiness or maybe because of it. Ms. Carnacki and I spent our honeymoon in New York and our wedding night dinner at The Jekyll & Hyde Club…and she’s not a horror fan like I am.
But more than the quasi-spooky decor, it’s the laid-back bartender and staff and wide cast of characters who wander through the door that make Slaughtered Lamb a fun hangout. Reflecting its location in the eclectic Village, everyone from the tourist to the Wall Street suit to the punked-out chick with chains walks in for a drink.
Instead of falling into the “cheesy theme bar” trap, Slaughtered Lamb deftly sidesteps the designation into a subtle, kitschy place to grab a pint and hang out (but don’t tell that to the guy in shackles on the wall).
