This bar is great! It's got a fun western/outlaw theme (obviously), and there are boots and licence plates hanging from the celing and walls. Great jukebox, too! Very reasonable prices for drinks here. You can drink a lot of Pabst here...

Ok, ok maybe not the classiest place in the world but its straight rock'n'roll where even old timers are welcome. Grab a few buddies, a few brews, and stomp on over to watch a game or two. Great times and easy to get to.

Doc Hollidays has cheap beer, quality tunes, and fun-loving bartenders who like to stomp on the bar. What more can you ask for?

Well, there's also a pool table. And occasionally, the bartenders will poor free shots straight from the bottle into your mouth. And despite decent sized crowds, you can usually score a table.

Let the good times roll...

This bar may have a bad odor and, from time to time, too many frat boys but...
It is supposed to be a dive bar and was written up as one of the 20 best dive bars in the COUNTRY!!!
The bartenders are gorgeous and fun.
The bouncers are very polite and there are a few really good looking ones like, Johnny, Steven, and Ben. Steven is an amazing dancer and will not think twice about twirling a girl around for a good song.
When Johnny and Ben are working you know you are safe.
Perfect gentleman and very much the perfectionists on the job.
And then you add the great juke box and cheap drinks!!!!
This is one of the best OFF NIGHT places on the lower east side. Lots of locals and other bar staff from the area hang there, always a good time and, if you're lucky enough to visit while Johnny and Meridith are working, a non-stop comedy show... and they are both gorgeous!!!
You definitely should stop by for some fun there!

Pros: Awesome staff, good tunes, cheap drinks, local hang out on week nights

Cons: Smelly at times and too many frat boys and girls on the weekend

Go to a place with velvet ropes and hair gel.

This is a bar for people who like bars. You can drink whiskey and PBR tallboys, listen to good music, and mix it up with the bartenders. The bathroom is basically a stall at the end of a hallway and it's coed. I went at the very end of the night on a Saturday so it was pretty empty. I'll probably be back in NYC by the end of this month, and plan on going earlier in the night to take in the atmosphere. And I'll won't even think of ordering rum.

This place was alright, but my experience was totally ruined by their bouncer. This short guy with brown hair kept hounding my friends and I the entire time. We went out for drinks for my friend's 21st. This guy actually left the door and sat down with us and started hitting on my friend. It was pathetic. I guess the bar was empty so it wasn't a problem. The drink selection was good - but this guy just didn't get a clue. We finally had to tell him to leave and then he asked to see our IDs! I expect to run into some skeevy guys, but I don't expect them to be employed by the bar. After that he just sat and sulked to whole night giving us weird stares. We left and went down the street to Hi-Fi which isn't staffed by perverts.

Steer clear of this bar if only to avoid this little guy. Napolean complexes are fine when you're building an empire, but when you're guarding a dump and hitting on girls ten years younger than you just get some Dr. Scholes inserts and deal with your problems yourself.

Pros: so dark you can't see what people look like, big buck hunter

Cons: so dark you can't see what people look like, awful bouncer, looks like it was flooded recently

WHAT KINDA PLACE CALLS THEMSELVES A BAR BUT DOESN'T CARRY RUM?! :-|

I went to Doc's and I asked the bartender for the simplest drink one can possibly make - A RUM AND COKE and the bartender told me that they don't carry rum! WTF?! The place is dark, smells like old booze and is way too crowded for it's size on the week-ends. Don't get me wrong, no one wants to walk into a bar and hear crickets but I wouldn't call having a good time getting your feet stepped on everytime someone has to walk by you. I WILL NEVER SET FOOT IN THIS PLACE AGAIN! YUCK!
<
UPDATE (1/08) - This goes out to the a-hole that posted a response to my comment (2 above me). In MY opinion, Doc Hollidays s*cks. It smells like an old man bar and it's full of trashy ppl (like yourself)...who the @#*! drinks PBRs and brags about it?! You have no class and/or are too cheap to buy REAL beer!!! HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF COORS, BUDWEISER, OR CORONAS!? MORON! I'm a native New Yorker and that's the first time I've ever been to a place that calls themselves a "bar" and don't carry rum. It's not like I asked for some Cristal Champagne. WTF?! Anyway, you know what you can do with your opinion. lol

Doc Hollidy's is fantastic. It does not even need a review. Just go there and you will be drunk and you will have fun.

The reason why some have left this place negative reviews is most likely because they were actually underaged teenagers who tried to get in and realized that YES, they ID and take it very seriously and I don't blame them. Also, this bar is a true NYC dive (one of the remaining few), so they serve BEER here, no sissy rum drinks!! Doc Holidays is a nice, friendly, neighborhood dive bar in alphabet city. It doesn't usually get too rowdy from the times I've been there. Familiar faces each time I go.........friendly patrons..........never seen a fight here either. If you're looking for a nice, chill spot to drink cheap beer, meet some interesting people, and listen to upbeat country music then Docs is defiinitely the place to be. Don't get me wrong, it can get fairly crowded at times and girls sometimes even dance on the bar for free shots! Bartenders are also very friendly. Also, you never know who may walk in the doors of Doc Holidays. I remember, I actually saw David Allan Coe himself hanging out at Doc's on a weekday afternoon several years ago. Doc's also has a pool table, but try and get there early if you intend on playing. Doc Holidays is also a great alternative to Coyote Ugly when it gets too crowded there or when you get tired of waiting for a drink there while the bartenders dance on the bar. You'll get much faster service here at Doc's compared to Coyote Ugly! It's only a block away from CU.

Pros: Great Dive Bar, Great Jukebox, Friendly bartenders, they keep underaged teens out!

Cons: the doorman checks your ID very carefully, but it's his job!!

I was at the bar on Halloween night, and I have never had so much fun. There was a costume contest I had heard about, but had no idea what a show it would be. Girls were dancing on the bar for hours, and stripping. The bartenders were dressed alike, like wild west cowgirls, totting toy guns and getting money stuck in their garters. I got some free shots, had an amazing tme....and I woke up on my kitchen floor still dressed in my costume the next morning. I think I'll make it back there for New Year's.

Cons: closes at 4

Not only are there girls hot, but they are super nice too. And I'm a girl. On a recent Friday, every single guy in there was hitting on the bartender, and she gracefully had comebacks that were funny as hell. There were also some models from Jameson there, buying people drinks, and giving out free stuff. I saw a sign for the wednesday ladies night thing. Thinking I may have to give that night a shot next go round.

This is the only place in the East Village that still makes it feel like what is should be. Alphabet city still lives at this bar. Every night I have been there in the last month, it seems to be getting wilder and wilder. Bartenders and customers on the bar all night long. One bartender was serving drinks with her top off (bra on) for one hour yesterday during happy hour. Now that is what I call a HAPPY hour!

Don't miss this place, where the staff is REAL, and fun, with no pretentions.

Li and Joanna...you make my week! These gals pour a stiff drink and look good doin' it. And the new girls (Alyssa, Sabra, etc.) ain't too bad, either...come here for the good booze (great happy hour) or the best jukebox in town. You can't beat it, especially if you are from the South.

Whenever my friends and I go to this place, we always have a great time. I'm a raging alcoholic who's been to a lot of bars in NYC so I feel comfortable saying that JOANNA is without a doubt the BEST bartender in the city. She can do a million things at once, all while keeping your cup filled with sweet nectar from the gods. Simply put: It's my huckleberry.

With so many good dives in the East Village, why would anyone go here? Is cheap Pabst's BR really worth it? It might deserve an award for being the smelliest dive bar, but that doesn't make it the best! On the weekends, it's packed with the B&T crowd - not at all a neighborhood bar.

A good time bar that draws more neighborhood types then tourists or bridge and tunnel commandos.

Good service, nice staff, nothing scripted.

A down to earth fun place to drink on the cheap and meet nice people.

My roomate loves this bar, and last night I went there with him for the first time. The bartender, Joanna, was truly the best bartender I have ever had. She was really nice, and when a customer was annoying me, she told him to leave me alone. My very own body guard! Then, she gave me some of her homemade snacks, including the best beef jerky I have ever had. This is now my favorite bar, and Joanna is my girl! Thanks for a great time.

If you're looking for a place for a $2 can of Pabst, go to Doc's. Mixture of college kids, freaks and locals out for a cheap night out. If you're looking to impress anybody, you'd best pass on by. Staff is attentive, even when they're busy. Decor-wise, like I said, it is a dive. Kitschy, but nasty.

Nestled at the corner of Ave. A & 9th, Doc Holiday's scares me...still. Making it the best dive bar in NYC. Maybe it's the gleaming line-up of boss hogs barring entrance to the bar, or maybe it's the sexy bartenders pulling very willing women to the top of the bar for a shot and a dance...I don't know. Honestly, for me, it's probably the $2 cans of Pabst & Ray Charles on the juke box that makes Doc Holiday's so inviting. Nobody notices when you walk in & nobody notices when you're passed out on the floor in the hoary darkness that is Doc Holiday's. I love it!

Ah, Doc Holliday's... go thirsty or you won't really get in on the fun. A great jukebox and even better touches like the cans of PBR make for one hell of a good time. The bartenders are all sweethearts and the old guy in the cowboy hat who plays air guitar by the pool table, well I'm convinced that's Doc Holliday reincarnate. Cheers. *burp*

You have to love a cowboy bar in the city that's also the last place where you would ever find any actual cowboys. This joint, named after the famous outlaw, has everything the Marlboro man could ask for (except smoking, of course): Cheap…
