Reviews for Chanticleer

Classic Upstate NY, old school drinking bar. No food, which is perfect for this joint. Original art deco decor with lots of beautiful polished old wood throughout. Without question the Chanti has the greatest original neon lighting. Inside and out. Best I've ever seen. Drink prices are beyond cheap. If you appreciate old school drinking bars you owe it to yourself to stop in. If you want an Appletini, this ain't your spot.

I always have fun at The Chanty. Just a bar though. No food, no coffee, nothing pretentious. Keep walking on to the Commons if that's what you're looking for. Just easy bar conversation, decent beer prices and attentive bartenders. The pool table is always in use too.

A great local watering hole. The space is tight, the patrons loud, and the music trashy. I love it. You won't find any Cornell or IC students here, which is nice for a change. Prices are more than reasonable, and the staff has personality for days. Don't expect a warm welcome, but you'll feel at home soon enough.
