Jake's Dilemma is essentially the Upper West Side's very own frat house. Known for rowdy games of beer pong, a collection of foosball tables, and a dedicated gang of drinkers that likely belong to frats of their own, the Amsterdam Ave bar is replete with all the makings of a college party. The daily happy hour is a huge draw for its half-price drinks and discounts on wings and nachos. The music is loud and strictly Top 40 (with a few tasteful 2000s throwbacks), and the bartenders are no-nonsense and efficient.
