the best 3/27/2009

Real people getting real drunk for real reasons. Scrape up a stool and don't be stand-offish. Breathe deep, smell the...humanity, and don't think. Drink! Pros: atmosphere, humans being Cons: broken atm outside more

Dirty Dive Bar. Gotta love it. 3/5/2008

The first time I went here it was the last stop of our night and we were definitely drunk. I had no idea what to expect but one of my friends has been going for years so we went. It's small and dirty with graffiti over every square inch of space. I personally had a great time and have been back a few times since. This place is NOT for everyone so I don't recommend it for that but if you're the type of person that would enjoy something like this than check it out. Definitely one of the last places of it's kind left. Pros: Dank and dirty! more

Is there a level beyond dive? 8/25/2004

If so, then this is it! If you are interested in an adventure, then come here. If you don't want the regulars demanding your attention through wacky stunts you can't possibly ignore, go somewhere else. Also, the bartenders are so beyond the insanity of the regulars that they won't speak to you beyond what you've ordered. After my night there, I can see why. Pros: Insane regulars, Cheap, Adventurous Cons: , Insane regulars more

good vibe 12/14/2003

if you just want a drink and sit in a place that has THAT feel this is the one for you, good for sitting on a stool and staring at your glass. Pros: inexpensive, no questions Cons: bathroom more

Very Divey - and not in a yuppie way 8/7/2002

this is a real dive bar. it's small, dark, dirty, and full of punk rockers and middle-aged alcoholics (think alcoholics with no job, as opposed to alcoholics who don't like their jobs). it's the kind of place where you really don't want to use the bathrooms. if you want a pure dive, this is it. if you're looking for a ""dive"" that will be hot next year, this is not your place. more

Bowery Bums Bender 8/2/2002

Gentrification of The Lower East Side? Not at Mars Bar. This place IS PUNK ROCK. Not so friendly eccentric regulars and dive atmosphere defines what once was The Bowery. Fair priced drinks, an unusual jukebox and a pin ball machine that will eat your money is what one should expect when they walk through the door. P.S. - Beware of the bathrooms!!!! Pros: Atmosphere, Fun, Unique Experience Cons: Filthy Bathrooms, Too Small more
