Coal Yard

Map & Directions 102 1st Ave.
New York, NY 10009


Village Voice's Description

The Coal Yard bar is behind its time, and that's a compliment. With
East Village gentrification creeping all over the 'hood, it's rare when
a new true-blooded dive opens up, rather than a mixologist-fronted cocktail bar. But the proprietors of International Bar, another dive-y neighborhood institution one block away, have imbued the Coal Yard with the same familial quality. This experience is furthered by the bar's self-described "Knights of the Round Table" seating area, an inclusive semi-circle bar that surrounds a tap of $2 Bud, $4 Captain Lawrence, and so forth. King Arthur is played by the long-haired, tattooed bartender, who could totally take on the Kings of Leon.

    The ladies behind the bar were super sweet and let us take a pic with them. Order a shot and make sure to tip your bartender generously! Ask for the game, its behind the bar.

    Lots of friendly lone drinkers willing to talk to just about anyone frequent here, despite it’s dark, rough around the edges look. And smokers rejoice: the outdoor patio is open year round.
