The only positives are the cool neon sign and the location. Negatives: Rude, indifferent bartender. Filthy men's room. Blaring TV's. Short-shot drinks at higher than average NYC dive bar prices. $7 draft beer. Hundreds of better places with 20 blocks.

Arriving in New York at our hotel The Lucerne, we had to wait one hour for our rooms, so we went for a small walk and tried the Dublin House bar nearby. Several draft beers, cocktails and whisk(e)y's at your choice. On old bar atmoshere. But if you like it, and we did, you will come back.

Bartender has no personality. Although there are many TV screens, the many speakers are so inadequate that we could not decipher any of the football playoff broadcast. Miniscule shots, barely covered the ice cubes. Diet coke undrinkable. No food of any kind available, no nuts, chips, or anything edible. Men's toilet filthy.

We stopped in late night during our stay in NYC and had a lovely time chatting with Tony. He makes a great drink and is a lovely guy. The place was convenient to The Lucerne which is where we were staying for the night. We'll stop next time we are in that part of New York.

Good little neighborhood bar full of locals. The Irish guy behind the bar has been there forever and does a fantastic job of serving everyone quickly. We sat at one of the little tables across from the bar waiting for service, but then realized the bartender was the only person pouring and serving. A quick trip up to the counter... More

I usually like to eat while I drink, but this is a damn fine, old-fashioned neighbourhood bar. It's soaked in cool New York City history. I just wish I had stopped in before (since I have been in the area so many times before this one). Great place to talk and have a drink. Didn't see anyone who even looked... More

I love this pub! The barkeeps were very friendly and took time (generally) to carry on a conversation. We were in the city from about 6 PM on Sunday until roughly 1 PM on Tuesday, and I made it a point to stop in for the best pint of Guinnes, this side of the pond, every time I could! (4... More

On a very hot day, we ducked out of the furnace, attracted by a very cool, vintage neon sign. We found a museum of a bar. Much of the interior has not been touched, more or less, since the 30's. Jerry the barman was great- friendly and accomodating. The regulars are friendly and interesting. A must- see for bar fans.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
