    Make new friends and kick it with old ones at the bar known for its PBR and whisky shot combo and killer tunes.

    Max Fish is one of most competitive bar pool scenes in lower Manhattan -- put your name on the list and get ready to wait! 7' Table, questionable condition.

    I'd go back just for the bathroom. Sure it has a broken lock so unknowing patrons can open the door only to be introduced to your junk but you know what? That's Max Fish for ya. Love it.

    This place makes a great whiskey sour, but what you really need to come for is the Doctor Who pinball machine in the corner.

    Originally part of “Life Underground” (which we all know I am not a fan of…), The Metropolitan Transit Authority asked artist Tom Otterness to remove the bronze “Rat Cop,” as it was deemed offensive Read more

    Back in the dodgeball.com days, this spot is where the very first "friend-of-a-friend" message actually worked back in 2005 ("Hey, Mona is across the street and you know Mona thru Brian - say hi!"). Read more

    This used to be a good place to go in the LES, but lately I have seen the signs of ageism and racism. I was called a deutsch bag because I called Harry the bartender by his name. He had been standing

    Go before it closes! This bar hasn’t changed in a decade, and that’s a good thing! An unpretentious dive bar with a hip crowd.

    Table by the window was nice and away from the crowd. But the rest of the place was too crowded and loud.

    Go to Max Fish and do everyone's taxes in the bar. Should only take a few days and someone might hug you.
