Don't be put off by its sign; this tiny little bar across from Carnegie Hall has a wonderfully inviting, only-in-New-York ambience. Since the '20s, this bar has attracted all kinds: businessmen, concert patrons, students from the nearby Art Students League and a late-night crowd of after-hours restaurant and bar employees. Posters of Ireland, New York memorabilia, and work from the Art Students League instructor and regular patron Robert Cenedella cover the walls, including a large, colorful illustration of some of the pub's best patrons and employees. Some of the bartenders look like they've been here a little too long and the waitresses are not the model types you'll find at Whiskey Park an avenue away, but Carney's is what a dive bar should be: comfortable and familiar.


Kitchen open until 3 a.m. Mon—Sat and until 2 a.m. on Sunday.
