There’s a certain ilk of New York bars that, at first glance, are decidedly ordinary—they offer nothing special in terms of drinks, decor or anything else. Somehow, though, these unassuming, often rundown spots transcend any one of a number of stereotypes and provide pub crawlers with a terrific bar experience. No place fits the bill better than TriBeCa Tavern. While the decor borders on decrepit (TriBeCa Tavern may be a contender for Manhattan’s Worst Restroom), it’s actually quite homey: Ample tables provide plenty of seating space, but the real prize is up front, where a cozy enclave provides patrons with a view of bustling West Broadway. The friendly bartenders are more than happy to whip up whatever drink you desire, though the reasonably priced draft beer, served by the pitcher, is really the way to go. The standard digital jukebox and surprisingly good sound system, like most things at this great little bar, sound better than you would’ve thought.

Amazing staff and playlist and food and drinks! Come here if you wanna have a good time. Cause that's all they serve. A GOOD TIME.
with the closing of raccoon lodge this is now the preeminent dive bar in Tribeca. A pool table, great beer selection, a patio and a fantastic staff makes this the go to spot for wallstreeters and artists alike.
I was there a few years ago with friends and we had the most wonderful time ever! We plan to be back when we return to NYC. A little gem in Tribeca!
I have never had a worse experience in my life. When I questioned why the Tribeca Lemonade "special" was $13, not $4 during "happy hour." The bartender got surly., though I paid the full amount, plus a tip. Then when I asked for an Absolut martini, I was told it was $8, so I ordered Absolut straight up for $4, leaving a $1 tip. When I got to my seat, the bartender started yelling at me that the $5 bill I had given him was counterfeit! I said I would give him $5 in exchange for that bill, but he said he would not return it. At that point my wife intervened, telling him she is a banker and needed to return the bill in question to her bank. He gave it over but ordered us to leave the bar, which we did. leaving our drinks and our $15. This is outrageous. The man should be fired, and your bait and switch "happy hour" scam should be ended.
open til 4 am ...everyone is down to earth great beer selection and the Nachos are amazing. Cant beat happy hour either
