We loved the food and the beer selection was extensive. The Lamb sandwich is amazing as are the Buffalo Wings. The band played rock & roll and Irish music. Bartenders were fun.

You cannot go wrong at the East Village Tavern. The crowd may be heavy or light but you will always get good service from the bartender who knows a lot about the great beers they are serving. This is my A#1 pub when I'm in the City.

If you are a fan of quality craft beers and an unpretentious atmosphere, then you'll find yourself gravitating to the East Village Tavern. The taps change constantly so whenever you come in, chances are very good that you'll find a new craft beer to try. The food menu is also simple yet good, which is what appeals to most patrons....

The East Village Tavern is part of the Good Beer Seal which means it serves locally crafted beer amongst other things. The beer selection is fantastic. I have been to the bar on a weekday afternoon when I've been the only person there and I've been on a Saturday night when it's packed and both times I had a brilliant... More

I strongly recommend this place. I have just returned from a long weekend in NYC staying at the very good 'East Village Bed and Coffee' (check out the reviews!) and made this place my local for the duration. A stunning range of quality ales, a friendly clientele and friendly, informative bar staff (thanks Marty!). I didn't eat from the bar... More

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
