Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

When the legendary dive bar closed its original Lower East Side location in 2013, regulars were devastated. Thankfully, they didn’t have to go without their Max Fish fix for too long. The bar reopened just a few blocks away in 2014, and bartenders have been slinging cheap drinks ever since. Fans will recognize a few relics—like a cigarette-shaped light and sculpture of a woman sweeping—in the decor, and Max Fish still functions as a bar-cum-art-gallery. Join the crowds at the bar, or for more privacy, rent out the basement for your party. It has its own DJ, bar and a separate entrance. On any given night, you’ll see 20-somethings grooving to electronica, a few old hats nursing beers on barstools and maybe even a few famous patrons. After all, Max Fish is known for hosting celebrities like Johnny Depp, Iggy Pop and Bob Dylan.

Max Fish says
