    A one up on your typical dive bar, Lucy's has got a couple (free!) pool tables. Come enjoy the cheap drinks plus a pretty laid-back clientele. Read more

    One of my favourite dive bars in the city. Great bar.

    A neighborhood institution. Lucy isn't her name but it might as well be. The liveliest dive bar on this side of Ave A.

    If Sophie’s is queen of the East Village, Lucy’s is princess. Most locals know the place for bartender-owner, Lucy who frequently switches the jukebox to polka. She’s the boss here, as it should be.

    Go find Cory. He's good people. Also, Lucy, the owner, is always about.

    Expect nothing and gain everything - this place is a classic East Village dive that you can't help but fall in love with!

    Mediocre, inexpensive southwestern style food. Food is served quick. Located next to MSG.

    Probably the cheapest whiskey in the EV. Great way to end the night.

    Perhaps my memory deceives me but I remember "Lucy" telling me back in 2000 that her name wasn't Lucy. A decade later she's relented to eponymity.

    Vipul Patel · July 13, 2011
  • The Daily Meal

    Best dive bar, best East Village bar, best New York bar, best end-of-night bar — Lucy's is all these, and a great jukebox bar too. Also in the mix, cheap (and strong) rail drinks. Read more

    Click done on this if you've seen Lucy fall asleep at the bar. She's the best ever!

    Tim Herrera · June 6, 2011
  • AskMen

    They have a jukebox with Motley Crue, Pink Floyd, & Britney Spears, along with pool tables. You'll be sitting next to some eccentric artist & some fancy person, so it's kinda cool.
