Plenty of NYC bars and restaurants say they have a dress code - usually this means no hats, sneakers, cutoffs, flip-flops or jeans. Sometimes the venues post these no-nos right on their front door. But are these rules enforced? We decided to check out a few hot spots with stated dress codes and see how strict they are about what their customers wear. Many of the joints were a lot more lax than we expected. Except when we wore Crocs. Click though the below slideshow to see who didn't care that we were dressed like bums, and who actually turned us away at the door.
