Welcome to the Johnsons

5 out of 5 stars
(3user reviews)
A well-worn pool table, dingy brown refrigerator, Ms. Pac-Man and plastic-covered couches pay tribute to 70s rec rooms at this LES bar. Happily, the drink prices—$1.50 Pabst Blue Ribbon and $2 well drinks till happy hour ends at 9pm—are just as retro.

Low expectations and a hard liver. If you do not posses these two traits, turn around. This place looks like the living room your grandpa used to fall asleep in with a lit cigar in his mouth. So in other words, charming. Equipped with an old ratty pool table and couches that make you question the state of your current bedbug infestation (they're covered in plastic, take it easy), this place oozes with character. Perfect for after work, at the end of the night or just to wallow in self pity in the corner, Johnsons has you covered. Plus you can't really beat a $2 PBR special.

This bar is the perfect place if you are looking for the 'dive' appeal within the LES area. Very friendly bar staff and visitors to this fantastic drinking experience.
