Q: Why is the starting location a secret?
A: The events attract a lot of people. It is important that there is enough physical space for the party, and so that guests are able to take advantage of the exclusive benefits of the event.
Q: What does my $20 get me?
A: 4 of NYC’s greatest hot-spots, free drinks & drink specials, 100% free admissions, like-minded people, awesome guides, and an unforgettable night out in NYC!
Q: What are the bars like?
A: Events begin in bars with a relatively calm atmosphere, and then increase in intensity.
Q: Is there transportation between the venues?
A: No. With venues so very close to each other transportation would use more time than walking. Some guests, however, take it upon themselves to hire a limousine to drive them around a bit before the crawl and then bring them to the first bar.
Q: Do you organize drinking games?
A: Commercial promotion of drinking games in New York City bars is illegal and a liability issue. While guests often take it upon themselves to play a game, we can not organize such activities.
Q: How many others will be attending?
A: As many as we can fit, though we do have a limit.
Q: What time does the last venue close?
A: 4:00 AM (and sometimes later).
Q: What time do we arrive at the last venue?
A: Approximately midnight.
Q: How far do we walk between bars?
A: The venues are very close to each other. About 3 minutes or less.
Q: Can I arrive late to the event?
A: We have a tight schedule to follow. Do arrive on time.
Q: Is there a dress code?
A: Neat fitting, trendy attire is good. No athletic shoes, hoodies, shorts, flip flops, tank tops, or baseball caps. PCNY is not responsible for denied admissions due to inappropriate attire.
Q: What if it is raining/snowing? ☂
A: Guests are encouraged to check the weather forecast beforehand, and prepare accordingly.
Q: Should I tip the bartenders for my drinks?
A: This is important. Here it is customary to tip for every drink, even for average service (unless of course they are rude to you first). Understand: in the U.S., bartenders and servers salaries are paid by the customer tips, and not the restaurant/bar. The more comfortable you become with this the better your experience will be.
Q: What kind of free drinks/specials do we get?
A: We receive exclusive “pub crawl only” drink deals that vary by location such as: complimentary drinks, a free shot with your drink, and buy one get one free drinks!
Q: Is there an age restriction?
A: You must be 21+ to enjoy this night out. Do bring ID, even if you are 100 years old. Laws regarding ID’s are very strict here.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: Cancellations must be made no later than 48 hours prior to the event in order to be eligible for transfer or refund. Bookings created within 48 hours of an event are non-transferable/non-refundable.
