“One of the essential bars on the Upper West Side. Take your beer pick from any of the 82 bottles, 32 drafts, 30 growlers, five cans, or one cask, and then do it again. And then again. Annddd again. And then take a poutine break.” ~ Thrillist
“The list of scotches and tequilas verges on the amazing, and the wine list ain’t bad, either.”~ The Village Voice
“Step inside and you’ll see why it’s called Dive Bar: The curved aquarium and dive helmets makes this hangout look like a movie set for The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. But rather than search for wily eels or buried treasure, patrons come for the booze, and a dauntingly wide selection at that. Originally a speakeasy, the place now doubles as a restaurant, offering a full menu (including various vegetarian-friendly options) until 4 a.m.” ~ Critics’ Pick, New York Magazine
For over a quarter of a century, this place has been an Upper West Side institution. Come by and see what all the hype is about: We are a unique hole-in-the-wall bar with a tarnished history, a troublesome future, plenty of televisions and a proud legacy of good times.
We have an epic beer selection – including exclusive brews – as well as a Scotch, Bourbon & Rye collection that in unmatched in Manhattan. Our food – everything from burgers and wings to Muffaletta and Poutine – is delicious and locally sourced, above-and-beyond any standard bar menus. Bold statements? Absolutely. Check out our Instagram feed and Facebook page to see how much we care about creative food, craft beer and good people.
We’re your place for growlers and crowlers, local sports and trivia nights, craft beers and mussel madness. Stop reading already and come by!
