Tobacco Road

Map & Directions 355 W. 41st St.
New York, NY 10036


Village Voice's Description

Tobacco Road bills itself as Manhattan's "most down-to-earth rock-and-roll venue." We're not sure how down-to-earth bikini-clad waitresses and midget strippers are—both of which it also bills—but there is something charmingly pugnacious about the dank backroom stage and free hot dogs. If anything, the bar menu consisting of three drink options—beer on tap, beer in a bottle, and beer in a can—indicates a nod to Hell's Kitchen's sordid past (and lingeringly sordid present). Located in that perpetually grimy, seemingly ungentrify-able block behind Port Authority Bus Terminal, it is a lasting landmark for those who love their dives and cheap, hard rock shows.

Merchant's Description

Renown as a down-to-earth rock venue in the heart of Manhattan since 1999, TOBACCO ROAD provides that old fashioned Hell's Kitchen experience with the added bonus of having the friendliest, cutest and most skilled bartenders...wearing bikinis. No matter what season on the outside, TOBACCO ROAD keeps the temperature levels steady all year 'round.

    Winner of Best Dive Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! A great down-home respite in the Port Authority area.

    This might be the seediest of all the dive bars in NYC featuring girls in Bikini’s. Check out open mic night ever Sunday at 9pm. I think there’s a cat somewhere in the bar, but I can’t remember.

    One of my neighborhood hangouts. Drink specials are cheap. You can't go wrong, unless you bump into one of the asshole bouncers

    I feel like I'm in the shining. Which one do I choose?!?!

  • Simone A. on 12/09/13

    Cool vibes. Great performance venue. Fairly prices drinks for 42nd st. plus you can't go wrong with a bikini bar, aka bartenders in bras and super short shorts. Lol
