Fodor's Review

Who says NYC doesn't appeal to all tastes? Should you get a sudden urge to visit a tiki bar while in the East Village—and who doesn't sometimes?—the ultrapopular Otto's is your ticket. You'll find more than just a bamboo bar here, namely fish lamps, a tattooed, punk-rock crowd, cute little banquettes, drinksserved in shrunken-head mugs, beef jerky for sale, and DJs prone to spinning anything from '50s rock to "Soul Gidget" surf music.
