As per your votes, Hampden's best neighborhood bar is ...
None other than Frazier's on the Avenue (919 W. 36th St.)!
I tallied all the votes, and Holy Frijoles (908 W. 36th St. pictured) came in a close second, with Griffith's Tavern placing third.
It was a close one, gang.
I've never been to Griffith's, but I've been to Holy Frijoles and Frazier's more than a few times.
I was a little shocked to see Holy Frijoles get so many votes for being a neighborhood bar ...
Every time I've been there, the service has been terrible and the place has been packed with hipsters -- not exactly the most inviting of crowds, if you ask me.
But hey, I can't argue with the votes -- most came with good reasons why commenters liked the bar they picked.
I'll have to get to Griffith's here soon.
And, of course, another neighborhood. Look for that next week.
