Phoenix Bar

Hang with friends, make new ones
This is the East Village at its truest. No pretension, no special parties, just the local hangout to meet up with friends or make new ones. You can actually buy a beer and feel right at home. Gets especially crowded late on weekends.

      It's a dive but the bartenders are the best guys ever and the doorman is super sweet.

    • A fun place to hang
      Nice bartenders, great music and drinks! Feel right at home.

      wifi needed
      Excellent bar, cheapest drinks in town! All they need is free wifi and I'll give it a 5 star

      Music is loud, drinks are okay - atmosphere is laid back. Stop by if you're in the area.

      best place in east village
      We wondered around the east village on friday night trying to find a big dance club but like every other place we went in new york they all just seem to be neighborhood bars. I found the east village area to be a bit scarry. But the nicest place was definitely the phoenix. Small one room bar (like everywhere else) with a pool table. Friendly and good looking crowd. No dance floor.

      Old fave.
      Weird mix of old and young. Lots of drunk (barely over 21) kids. Great pick up joint.

      I used to play pool here all the time. they've got a good crowd. sometimes they're a bit poser-y. rich kids pretendin' they're bad ass. i went back the other night and the crowd was chill again. cute bartenders.

      I went to this place twice....the second time just to make sure that I'm not a victim of some kind of weird hallucination....WEIRD.....that's the closest description of this bar.....I mean there are so many GOOD gay bars in NYC, why would you go to this one, huh ???? The bartenders are nasty and not even close to being HOT and call me shallow but I want my bartenders a last resort if the clientele is not giving me a rush.....and the people that go there are like those who write in their profile: "straight acting".....go to a straight bar man !!!!!!!!!!!! Wow.....I got carried away, but seriously this place is NOT gay ! Ohhh and I did not even mention the losers that approached me with the shitiest pick up lines and annoying personalities, talking about stuff they do not have the slightest clue....RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE unless you want to have a bad memory of NYC's gay nightlife !!! I'm not kidding !

      Unpretentious, love it.
      A gay bar where no one scoffs at a man wearing shorts and sandals? Who knew! It's a great place with cheap beer and "divey" atmosphere. Despite not feeling judged and scouted by every man in the place, it still is somewhere you can easily meet interesting people. I like.
