    There’s the A-plus menu (featuring the best damn pretzel dog any drunkard could ask for), the tasty tiki drinks and cheap beer, but the centerpiece has got to be the free jukebox. Read more

    Glad I discovered this fun dive bar. Cheap drinks, laid back atmosphere, good music and even a flaming drink option (scorpion bowl). Bar menu includes delicious pickles and pretzel dogs.

    Good post brunch spot to gather your friends. These Del shandys are the best choice if you like sweet drinks.

    Nautical getaway in NYC. Don't miss out on their namesake cocktail, even when you're freezing your butt off, the tiki vibes and frozen cocktails will transport you to a warm sunny island.

    A Rusty Knot is a boozy frozen mojito. The Dark & Stormy is a gingery sure fire way to get shit faced quick. They serve tacos and guacamole. Come for the booze, stay for the sweet as fish tank.

    the pickles are so good. get the rusty knot (frozen mojito) and have the sloppy joe sliders. super casual place to just hang.

    : The guac is great, you can bring your mom here or a date. Also a good spot for a small group (like 6-8 friends) for a casual but still chic vibe.

    The nautical-themed bar is right at the western edge of the neighborhood, and has gorgeous views of the Hudson River to go along with cheap beers and hand-selected tunes from the old jukebox.

    Large and strong tiki drinks, free jukebox (great diverse selection), 50 cent pool games, nice service, and not too crowded. A hidden gem along the Hudson.

    It’s become unreasonably expensive. Draft Busch is 6 dollars (for BUSCH???) instead of 4 and the rusty knot (frozen mojito) is now 13 instead of 11. Go on Tuesday for 2 for 1 Busch and well drinks

    I really love this hidden watering hole! On Sunday afternoons, enjoy a super cute weekly kiki that you won't wanna miss (if you're a gay man or a friend of the fags)

    Sunday afternoons are crazy busy and crazy fun with free Tito's vodka drinks from 4pm to 5pm. Get it while you can!

    What's not to love? If your sea faring grandfather had a basement bar, this would be it. Tecate is served with lime juice and a salt rim!

    Galaxy-themed pool table, massive jukebox, and nautical decor? This place has it all. Make sure you get there early enough to try the food!

    The namesake drink is great with floating plastic mermaids! The other tiki drinks are strong and the food is decent as well

    This place is my idea of heaven- tiki drinks, an "outer space" pool table, an amazing view of the Hudson and a bartender that looks like Kid Rock.

    This place is a gem. On weekends, it's hella packed,but week nights, it's pretty open. Great drinks, and chill maritime atmosphere.

    NYC [Eat, Drink] This dive-meets-tiki-bar-meets-cabin spot creates a great atmosphere for a fun hang out. Head over on Tuesdays for their all night happy hour. Get a pickle back if you dare!

    Kick back with cheap Caribbean-style cocktails and hang with local patrons at this go-to dive that actually resembles your Grandma’s house in Florida, not a boat.

    You gotta respect a bar that keeps Brugal as the well rum. Especially on Tuesdays when it's 2-for-1 all night aaaaand karaoke night.

    The rusty knot is simply a frozen mojito, and it's great. A nice pit stop on the way to or from the frying pan.

    Unique Nautical-themed, out of the way tiki-bar that serves up kitsch, cheap beer, pretzel dogs and their specialty Rusty Knot.

    Great slush drinks, mexican beer with lime salt, and an out of control good pretzel dog plus pickle. Sit by the fish tank and people watch.

    The classic 'Rusty Knot' cocktail is my fave. It's essentially a frozen mojito with tiny bits of fresh mint leaves.

    the rusty knot is a frozen blended mojito that's very refreshing and perfect to sip between pickleback shots

    It's decorated like the downstairs of your parents' houseboat in the 70s. Delicious pretzel dogs and super chill vibe. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    this place is awesome when it's not the weekend - it gets too crowded and scene-y on friday and saturday nights. get a pickleback.

    Order a Tecate and play Hall & Oates "One on One" on the jukebox and instantly be transported to a happier place

    Best during early drinking hours, when you can actually imagine fishermen hanging here and forget about its proximity to the Meatpacking District. Read more
