    Very cool, laid back bar. Not too big but long and not a big beer selection but the atmosphere makes up for it. Come on a night when you want to talk, enjoy a pint, and be in the dark.

    The best dive bar in NYC is filled with regulars making efficient use of the low prices. The owners have banished TVs to promote friendly banter and there’s always the jukebox to keep you company. Read more

    International is cheap all day every day, with $2 Genesee, $3 Schaefer and High Life, and $5 for a Genesee and shot of Evan Williams (or $8 for Jameson).

    “$2 cans of Genesee – plus the option of rolling in at 8am to end the night or start up fresh on a new day – make this dive truly legit.” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/international-bar.

    Classic dive bar. Cheap drinks, efficient bartenders, and the perfect place to finish your night once every other bar has kicked you out. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The Genesee and shot special is cheap but pretty awful tasting. Hopefully you are already too drunk to notice. Good jukebox selection, great dark little late dive bar if you are in the neighborhood.

    Try a beetle back if you thought pickleback was interesting. Surprisingly good (though also I worry may give me a stomach ulcer).

    Happiest happy hour. There's a great little backyard to eavesdrop on some often awkward discussions. But why stop there? Add your own comments to the mix! Well, unless you're a racist.

    they let you bring food into the bar, so my favorite thing to do is to get takeout from caracas, porchetta and wechsler's with a bunch of people and have a feast.

    Really cheap drinks. $5 cocktails. $4 shots. Small space. And some strange characters. Good pregame spot though.
