Mars Bar - CLOSED

Map & Directions 25 E. 1st St.
New York, NY 10001


Village Voice's Description

Approaching Mars Bar, you might notice young punk couples leaning against the wall, making out; inside, you might notice graffiti sprayed all over those same walls, letting you know who is promiscuous and who isn't. The glass bricks, once windows to the outside, are now instead canvases where cuss words come to meet in varying mediums: Sharpie, spray-paint, sticker. The room itself is a tight hallway housing a damaged wooden bar with doodles carved into it; the slashed stools have bits of foam falling out. Mixed drinks come in a smaller-than-usual glass (though there's always more gin than tonic), and beer only comes in a bottle or a can. The bar's exterior is a perpetually changing mural that once read, "The East Village Is Dead." Perhaps not.

Tips from foursquare

    Very upscale. Formal attire required. Drinks are typical NYC prices $8 for a Heineken and $12 for a Martini. Great place to bring a date, quiet romantic atmosphere.

    So much fun for some reason... Maybe because everyone is wasted there... One of the best dive bars ever. -Francine, The Real L Word
