The most unpretentious dive bar in the East Village, with the best daily happy hour. Cheers!

Time Out says

A picture window frames the goings-on along First Avenue, but if you’d rather slip into the past, there are some great photos of the neighborhood from back in the day. Lures such as $4 happy hour pints make the place attractive for a low-cost after-work rendezvous. Although this dive bar remains largely unchanged since its opening in 1984, it’s got a brand-new jukebox: expect to hear plenty of punk and indie rock when you head inside.

WCOU a.k.a. Tile Bar says
Tile Bar is an unpretentious East Village staple that has been open since the 1980s (back when the NYC bar scene was a lot different than what we see today). There are no Instagrammable floral motifs, neon quotes, or espresso martinis. There is cold beer, strong drinks, and a bartender that most likely knows your name.

That's right - Tile Bar differs from any other bar in New York City by preserving a piece of history and letting the bar remain unaltered for nearly 40 years. Only one aesthetic change has been made - a sign listing the name East Village locals have given us: "Tile Bar".
