New York, NY 10009
Village Voice's Description
Horseshoe Bar, pragmatically nicknamed "7B" by the locals, has provided the backdrop for grizzled and grungy dive-bar scenes in Goodfellas, Serpico, and The Godfather Part II. It plays this role perfectly. The jukebox is partial to Danzig, multiple decades-old stickers tattoo every reachable surface, and the bar is stocked beyond stocked, with dozens of vodka bottles lined up like veterans of the Clone Wars. Punk rock as it all sounds, 7B is nowhere near as damaged as dive-bar buddy Mars Bar on Second Avenue; the TVs here are highly functional, as is the skull-and-crossbones-branded tap.
Tips from foursquare
I live around the corner so I'm here all the time. A lot of the early "game mechanics" in foursquare (points, badges) were designed as a kick-in-the-pants to get us to default to new bars in the hood.
Kinda a famous spot in EV. This bar has been in many movies. Crocodile Dundie, God Father 2. just to name a few
You know that scene in Crocodile Dundee where he tries to pick up the transvestite ("that's a girl?")... takes place at 7B. (Sadly the "that's not a knife" scene did not)

Try the bloody mary. It's delicious!
