A dirty, redneck, dive in New York? Really? Apparently it is so. I guess every City needs a good dive. Thanks to a reader and fellow dive bar aficionado we have the following place to visit next time we find ourselves in NYC. I did my research and everyone agrees this place is a dive with regulars planted at the bar and all.
141 Ave A (at 9th St) East Village
DIRECTIONS: Subway: L to First Ave; 6 to Astor Pl
Cash only. Pabst in a can is $2, and four bucks will get you a well drink.
All you can drink bud light from 8pm to 11pm on Tuesdays. Some say AYCD for $5 others say $7. Their happy hour Buy One Get One Free specials happen DAILY from 5-8pm.
BEST TIME TO GO? During the week. I hear that Frat boys get out of hand on Friday and Saturday nights there. If you want a true dive bar experience, you probably want to avoid Fri and Sat nights.
