No doubt I'll return to this spot. The bartenders & staff were very laid back, but quick & friendly.\r
The selection of beers, booze, and wine was just right. They offered reasonable prices especially on pitchers.\r

Pros: Cheapest drinks in town

My girlfriend and I found this bar when she first moved to NYC a few years ago. I still lived outside of town, but every time I came to visit her we ended up at Parkside for drinks or music, or both.

Pros: Cheap drinks, live music

Wow! What a gem of a bar. It's like going back in time when you walk in. This place has been around for over 50 years and it has kept some of the original fixtures. I've been told that it is the most filmed bar in New York City and i can

Pros: cheap drinks, friendly service

This place is a pathetic excuse for a dive bar, with TERRIBLE service and SMOKING inside! I used to make this a regular stop on Wednesday nights and Saturday afternoons, but haven't seen my favorite bartender since March and figured I'd

The Parkside Lounge is "the champagne of dive bars." With happy hour until 8 p.m. 7 days a week, a divey relaxing atmosphere and constant entertainment in the back room. There is always something happening \r

Pros: Most of the shows are Free! Happy Hour 7 days a week.

The service was fine, the drinks were fine, the music was fine (the right volume, an OK mix of old and new, etc). But there weren't very many places to sit, and I was so distracted by what looked to be toe-curlingly bad performance art

Pros: not rammed full of people on a weeknight, bar staff were nice

Cons: attracts medicre performance artists

This is the owner of the Parkside Lounge. I am very sorry that anyone received poor service in my bar!\r
I can only say that the server mentioned was new, and very short lived at Parkside. She only lasted a week, as she didn't seem to get

Pros: One of the last of a great thing!

Cons: A bit of a walk from the subway

I have been to the Parkside many, many times and have always had a blast (and I am from out of town!) There have been some great music acts over the past few months, which I have enjoyed. Beyond the music, the Parkside is just a great

I've been going to the Parkside since I arrived in nyc about a year ago. I take all my friends there regularly and I've yet to find someone who didn't instantly love the vibe. It's completely unpretentious, yet genuinely cool. Table-top

Pros: fun, affordable, great music

I made the inconvenient trek from the F train to this modest bar to support a friend's band. In the practially empty backroom, where the live entertainment takes place, I was informed by the waitress of a two drink minimum. When she came

Cons: Insulting waitstaff

Heavy pour drinks at great happy hour prices that don't seam to end. Not a dive bar but an old bar with an oldtime vibe.

Pros: bluegrass, comedy, origional music

Stiff drinks, mixed crowd, no bullsh*t. I wasnt as wild about the jukebox but thats me, seems to play a lot of Johnny Cash. I can watch sports, get wasted, listen to music and meet interesting people.

Gotta love it.

AWESOME stand-up comedy on Tuesday (audience: free). It's "open mic" -- anyone can do 5 minutes. The crowd is very supportive. It's hosted by Damion Sammarco and Joey Gay. To do stand-up, arrive around 7:30. Pay $7; order of performance is
