    When waiting for a table at Mission Chinese next door grab drinks here. Great dive bar. Get an oyster shooter while you're here!

    169 Bar is best explained by a few things: a disco ball, a dinosaur on the wall, and a pool table covered in leopard print. Also, of note: you can text your drink order.

    Such an amazing party environment in a mostly quiet area. Edward the bartender made our night!!

  • Aaron B.

    Great fucking place. It has random ass decorations but $3 PBRs. They had me at $3

    There's nothing more old (80s and 90s) New York City that I have seen recently and they have amazing dumplings.

    Basically my favorite bar in Manhattan. Colt 45 on ice!

    Cheap drinks, great for groups. It's dark, loud, and has a great ambience.

    Stepping inside brings on instant ADD. Do you focus on the kitschy decor of mermaid statues and disco balls? The classic films on TV? Add in the happy hour shot & beer specials and it gets harder. Read more

    Bathroom was full of gnats. Also, $10 for 40 minutes of pool.

    A bit of a weird bar but fun bar. Definately worth checking out. Very affoordable during happy hour.

    Good dive bar. Somehow, against reason, the oysters are good and the crawfish boil is fantastic.

    Doug Benedicto · April 19
  • Emilio C.

    This is an awesome New Orleans styled dive bar! They have Abita on tap!

    Dive bar for dayz

    Tom Maxim · March 29
  • Emily K.

    If you're looking for a spot to day drink in the winter, look no further. $3 beer and shot deal for happy hour(s).

    Emily Kane · March 22
  • Eric T.

    Place has character but make sure to check your bill if you put a credit card down - arbitrary 30% tip seems high.

    Eric Tash · March 22
  • Skyler D.

    Good spot for happy hour, waiting for your table at Mission Chinese, or just for getting weird.

    Skyler Dobin · March 4
  • DoubleDeuce

    It's definitely a shit show in here. Weirdly has a dancer some nights and you can text your orders to the bar. It can get packed and have a line out front for no real reason or charm. Party place.

  • Tracy N.

    Probably the only place in NYC to serve Colt 45s

    Tracy N · February 24

    Oysters in the oyster shot is good, the vodka is not.

    Kate Yan · February 17

    Hidden gem of a dive bar. They have Shiner in cans.

    Tarik Hart · January 5
  • Meg F.

    In a weird area, it's a safe bet on a late night. Don't eat, just drink

    Text hello to (212)641-0357 for menu, then text your orders. Feels like futuristic magic (w/ decades old tech).
