End up in here every time I go to New York. Reliably cheap ($3 beers, $2 in happy hour), $1 pop corn and cheap juke box ($1 for 4 songs). This bar never changes which is reassuring,it is a great find.
Not many downtown places that have $4 well drinks and very cheap beer all day long. The crowd is very friendly, the bartenders are cool, and the atmosphere defines "dive bar." What more could you ask for?
Reasonable prices, lots of locals, great staff, good atmosphere in this dive bar downstairs on St Marks place - near St Marks hotel
I went here with my hubby and friend who lives in NY. St. Mark's is her favorite street in NY and after spending some time in Grassroots I understand why. Drinks are cheap for NY, bartender was funny and personable. We are all from Philadelphia...More
It's divey, the bartenders can be moody and sometimes it smells...and yet I find myself drinking here all the time. The prices are great and so is the jukebox. I think the bartenders get moody because so many obnoxious people (including myself) hang out here.
