179th Street Subway Bar

Map & Directions 180-2 Hillside Ave.
New York, NY 11432


Village Voice's Description

The namesake subway is the E and F stop at 179th Street in Jamaica. This dive is way away from anything trendy, nary a hipster in sight here. The flags of Trinidad and Guyana are flown behind the mirrored bar, along with posters advertising Carribbean beers. But you're going to want to eschew the suds and go for the hard stuff here—Absolut, Bacardi, and other name brand liquor goes for a mere $5 in mixed drinks, and they're not weak. It's not a bad place to sit for a few hours and watch the game, but be sure to bring cash.

    If you are here to transfer to bus, also consider 169th stop and get a seat.

    The bus stands have been rearranged 2 weeks ago. The N24 replaces the old Q77 bus stop at 181st Street, the new Q77 bus stop is with the Q17 at 178th Street and the Q76 bus stop is btwn 178th & 179th.
