Superdive

★★★☆☆
The perfect excuse to act like a drunken idiot for people who need no excuse at all. With keg service�available by reservation�Superdive is like Disney building an attraction called Ghettoland. The owners' intentions were, probably, noble, but such an idea as a bar that's an all-hours frat party is inevitably going to become just thank. Reports have already started pouring in of visor-and-polo-shirt clad, popped-color-and-hair-gel goons swarming the establishment hoping to relive the days of college, when their beer keg bellies were six-packs and their tilted hats weren't simply a way to hide a receding hairline.

This frathouse disguised as a bar is almost exclusively birthday parties on the weekend. Earlier reviewers have commented on their policy of not letting people in, even though it is not 100% packed inside. If you are invited to a birthday here, GET THERE EARLY. Each birthday guy/girl is allowed a set amount of people and once they have hit their limit, they do not let anyone else in. To get there to find out that your party is at capacity sucks, but it is also kind of nice to have some space to move around once you are inside.

The keg service (like bottle service, only with kegs) is nice and beer pong/flip cup games are abundant. Just get there early to ensure your entrance.

I sat at the front door and watched the manager/bouncer continually tell people that they were at capacity, while my friends inside kept texting me that the bar was empty and that the bartender had her feet up on the bar texting all night. The only people that got in had to pay off the bouncer and manager to get into an empty bar. When I called the manager out on it, he said I just didnt understand. My friends inside confronted him and he eventually said I could go in, to which I colorfully declined. This place just tries to rip you off at the door while trying to create a line outside to make it look like a hot bar. It isnt, dont waste your time and money on this wanna be trendy bar.

Pros: None

Based on reviews and expectations, I was thinking this would be a vile frat house, inch deep in stale beer, and completely packed.
My expectations were not met as SD did have a pretty smelly basement, but the upstairs was filled with typical groups all out celebrating birthdays and the decor was nothing special but nothing to be offended by.
I loved that the keg was rolled out in a garbage can. We worked our way onto one of the tables for some flip cup and beer pong. Its a wanna-be dive though and not a true local dive-bar.
For a once a year place I enjoyed it and would recommend you go there once. I doubt I'd bother going back for a while though.

Pros: Keg, Service, Very Casual

Cons: Reservation Policy, Actual Price of Kegs

Halloween 2009 was supposed to be $60 for a 7 hour open bar from 9PM till 4AM. At 1AM they kicked everyone out of the bar. A complete ripoff and unbelievable and inexcusable action. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BAR. GO ELSEWHERE. They do not deserve your money.

ha, alright, i'm just going to reiterate what the "warning!!! warning!!!" guy said above. this place is kind of a joke. "dive bar"? I don't think so. no character. just nicely polished floors, track lighting, and some college kids with their collars popped. if you are in the AMAZING east village, you should not end up here. to the owners: if you want this place to be successful, you need to get rid of the beer pong table (which takes up half of the tiny space), put in MORE tables, and literally have kegs tapped all over the place (as opposed to rolling one of those fake kegs out in a nice little ice bucket). it is a nice concept executed pretty poorly. also, the place needs to be broken in. I was afraid if I spilled a drink I was going to get in trouble.

Pros: "keg" service

Cons: everything else

Went to Superdive this past friday night for a birthday party. It was a ridiculously fun time-one of the best i've had in the city in a while. What's better than doing a keg stand in a bar? The only real con is that reservations are required- hopefully this is just a problem bc it just recently opened. I would defintiely recommend having a party there- i know I will definitely be making a point to go back again soon!

This place is awesome! I came to Superdive last night with a group of friends and I cannot remember the last time I had so much fun! We made our own mixed drinks all night long. I cannot beleive there is a bar that lets you make your own drinks. What a great idea! I am going to to come back over and over again! If you are looking for a great time come here!

Warning Tools on parade-
First off any self proclaimed "dive" bar should be the deal breaker! But this sh&^%t hole is yet another place for the new influx young wall streeters to come and feel cool in the east village, while reliving their frat days, which was only less than 8 months ago. And get this..... a door guy with a guest list??? Bottom line is, the place is lame and the crowd seemed better in Murry Hill. Can't wait to see the rent sign in the window!

Pros: it won't last!

Cons: Read below

friendly crowd, mainly emailers not having wify at home (like me;)
some of the baristas have the "i dont give a *&%%" attitude and that really annoying...
once again the music is so bad you should bring your own headphones!

The coffee is very good and decently priced. They have finally upgraded their food selections to included something other than $4 fat-laden brownies. The bookshop section is well-stocked and the wi-fi is a nice feature. Still, the place lacks any atmosphere. It isn't warm or inviting. It feels no different than sitting at Starbucks or at the cafe at Borders. There is nothing cozy about it, no neighborhood feel. Just a standard, dry decor more fit for Midtown rather than the East Village. It saddens me to reminisce about that over-the-top personality of the Korova Milk Bar (which Rapture replaced)

basically, as a take out spot, it 's a good caffeine fix, although they don't open until 10am on weekdays - sorry guys, I'll be taking my morning cash elsewhere.
