    Cheap booze on the Upper West - who knew? Solid board game selection for those in the know. Stake out a spot in the old, worn lounge area and stay a while.

    This used to be my favorite bar in the city! They had 4 Square long before it was trendy to have games at bars. Cool neighborhood vibe!

    Dive 75 is a great place for a first date. Have a drink or two over a game of connect four or Janga. Just make sure you eat before you head to this pub, they don't serve food.

    Nice chill atmosphere with a bar you can sit at (not too many people crowding it) and a mix of standing room, high tables and couches. Decent beer selection and small Halloween candies FTW.

    Drink or Treat - this neighborhood bar does what you wish your neighbors did every day growing up...give away candy. Help yourself as you mull your choices from their consistently strong tap lineup.

    The 1st time we came here, we stumbled in after reading reviews, looking for a nightcap at 2 am. We walk in, a guy is playing a trumpet, and the entire bar is having an epic singalong. Yup, come here.

    There's no food service, which makes this place nice and laid back. There's better beer selection close by at Amsterdam Ale House, but that place is usually slammed with people trying to eat.

    Don’t be misled by the name. It’s called Dive because it’s aquatic themed, and well, because honestly it’s 75% dive beer. Great beer selection, and a rare Upper West Side bar with character.

    Waaaaay too many people ordering Budweiser products in bottles. They have Founders Porter and Magic Hat on tap, people! I recommend you go somewhere lame to drink your stupid drinks.

    Very nice selection of popular and more obscure beers, but leave your appetite at home because there's no kitchen.

    Fun place! They have board games on the aide of the wall. Gets a little crowded on Saturday nights though!

    Cool neighborhood joint with a nice beer selection. It's Halloween for adults with free candy. And play time with Connect 4, Scrabble, Jenga, Yahtzee, Battleship, etc.

    Find an empty Jenga piece and write down a dare. Show off your skills and have a riot laughing at what is written on the wooden blocks. Some game pieces are missing but fun-sized candy makes up for it

    I'm usually wary of any bar that has to put "Dive" in its name to lend itself some cred, but this one wasn't too bad. Look out for the meatheads ordering PBR tall boys. Stick to the good beers they ha Read more

    I really wanted to like this place but I couldn't. We noticed the air pumps weren't working on the fish tank and informed the bartender she said it was ok. Maybe she'll get it when all of the fish die
