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.
Tips from foursquare
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.
Randy (the bartender) is awesome!!!!!!!!!!! Cheap drinks and a $4 beer and shot special!!! Worth a stop!
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.
These people are rude and wasted. I love it
