A Rough Diamond

A great place to socialize with mates and local folks that drink pints and a shot sider (not downed like young yuppy idiots). Bring friends as its one of the last remaining stand out dive bars of Tribecca. Regular R Cx loves it - end of chat...

I stumbled upon this place too one day & now its become a place to go often. Straight Up? the place is a Dump. But its Clean. Its like hanging out in an old "Bayonne" style Pub, And The people are down to earth and friendly. The food is good too, and the prices are very good. The juke Box is what I like best. they play it loud and always great tunes. Its definitely a Dive Bar, (one of the few left in manhattan) and you can have a great nite of fun drinking, snacking, & playing ShuffleBoard on teams with ur friends. If you dont know how to play the locals are willin to teach you or play a game if ur alone. And The evening wont kill your wallet too bad. Love this Dive!

A true skel bar just below Canal St. Dont make a special trip. The place is pretty dingy with nicotine colored walls and ceilings. The prices are good and the drinks gererous. It is populated with mostly local working guys and can get loud and argumentitive, They put a board across the kitchen board in the evening, not to keep the customers out but to keep the subway rats from mixing with the public. The food is decent anyway but the customers are not picky. The bathrooms are about as big as a phone booth and the loft ceiling is extremely low. You can have a good time here but anyplace is fun if you have the right crowd and someone to talk to and drink with.
Casual, comfortable and super friendly

I was walking around Tribeca one afternoon and happened upon this small neighborhood pub and decided to check it out. It has one deck table overlooking the sidewalk and a bird's eye view of the park across the street from a bar stool. The regulars range from artists to businessmen, cops and firefighters depending on the time of day or night. Melissa, the day bartender is great and really knows her stuff. The place is casual and friendly and there's serious shuffleboard mania. The food is non-fancy standard old school pub grub. Don't expect chocolate martinis but yes, there's Blue Moon. And, Melissa might make you a Sex-on-the-Beach if you ask her nicely. I love this place.
Barry is the Best!

The Nancy Whiskey is a fun bar with the greatest bartender! Gets pretty packed later at night, gets to be standing room only, but it's the best. I always take people who are new to the city there...and "natives" who've never heard of it!

I live in the South, raised in the Northeast. I had two hours to kill on a business trip and "happened" on Mary Gallagher, the "bartender" at Nancy Whiskey Pub. Greatest two hours in a bar for a hamburger and a cool one (2?). I enjoyed a wonderful time with the great people of New York City. The Irish Colleen, Mary Gallagher, and her fabulous "regulars". My father, Mickey McMahon, took me to the bars on Friay nights when I was a little girl. Brought back many, memories of the good old days. (NOTHING compares in TEXAS!) Wish I could have shared this moment with my father. Hospitality personified! Authentic NY Irish Bar like no other! xxoo
