    One of the best dive bars in LES/EV. Pool, ski ball, foosball. Inexpensive drinks, never too crowded and just a fun spot overall. Always a go-to.

    Pretty cheap pitchers, allowed to bring outside food in, foosball and pool tables, and big TVs for sports. Proximity to East River Park makes it the perfect postgame spot after group sports.

    The back room is great for events. Sometimes music, other times up-and-coming comedians practicing their craft and supporting each other through it.

    Phenomenal management and great staff. Potentially more importantly they have a great pool table. Folks seem to abide by 8 ball rules.

    Kind of off the beaten track but if you're close by it's worth a stop. Good vibes and cheap drinks.

    Such a great spot! Dive bar without the unsanitary, need-to-wash-your-hands-after-touching-anything feeling. Pro tip: Frozen Pickleback! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The guy, Michael, who runs the Inspired Word open mic, is unfriendly and unamused and if he sees you walk in without paying the cover, he will hunt you down. Cool event, but def will not go back

    Dive with cheap PBR and pool. Live music venue in the back with a cover. The photo booth takes cool, grainy film photos.

    Stop by the Parkside on Tuesday nights for DJ Andrew Andrew's residency, "C U Next Tuesday." A great low-key evening for conversation and cocktails with occasional shows in the back room.

    Cute bar until one of the staff blatantly steals your gloves when closing down the stage rooms and denies it when you come looking for them before ever even leaving the bar..

    easily one of the best bar pool tables in NYC. the felt is clean, not super worn, and the table is level which is exceedingly hard to find these days.

    This place can smell like dead hipster sometimes. But the tiny pool table makes up for it. Bring on your quarters.

    I've never witnessed such a disgraceful treatment of musicians until 12/3/13. The event coordinator harassed a band leader in front of his audience and peers. I will never step foot in this bar again

    If you beat the owner at foosball he'll buy you a drink. He's around all the time and he goes by Johnny Warrior.
