East Village Tavern
New York, NY 10009
Village Voice's Description
It just looks like your standard neighborhood watering hole until you take a look at the beer selection. There are 16 brews on tap, mostly excellent craft beers like Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold and Brooklyn Pennant Ale, as well as one cask ale. During the week, all draft beers are only $4 or $5 until 7pm; on Mets and Yankees game days you can get a pitcher of Yuengling and a dozen wings for $15. The food is basic pub grub like nachos, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and quesadillas. Get off to a boozy start during brunch service with all-you-can-drink brunch cocktails (mimosas, Bloody Marys, screwdrivers and more) for an hour. A chalkboard lists the beers on tap for the day while HDTVs play whatever games are on with a preference for New York baseball and the New Orleans Saints. Every so often musicians will pop in to play an acoustic set.âKeith Wagstaff
Tips from foursquare
When we were still working on foursquare out of my apt, this place was where the very first "pop-up tip" actually worked ("At EV Tavern? Try the fries!") That's when I knew we were onto something good
1/2 price Jameson Shots and $2.00 Corn Beef Sliders
Go to East Village Tavern late night on a Saturday. DJ plays the same songs every time, but great for a dance party
Large selection of beers at good prices. Can be a little bit hit or miss, but they sometimes have some great finds on tap. The bar food is appropriately delicious and decadent.
It's a saints bar for adults!
