Unpretentious bar with beer from a fridge, a jukebox & a 1970s wood-paneled-basement vibe.- Google
"Cheap beer ($2 PBR), awesome plastic covered sofas."
"This is one of my favorite LES dive bars."

When you're stumbling around the Lower East Side late night, there is no better place to grab a cheap PBR and play some tabletop Pac Man. Loud and dirty, but always a good time to be had. Place is unmarked, so don't be afraid to enter.

This is one of my favorite LES dive bars. They've recently upgraded their fridge so it seems slightly less divey than before, but you really can't go wrong with $2 PBRs. And while you're there, grab a slice of pizza around the corner from Stanton Street Pizza. The bar is totally BYOP friendly.

I am 23 years old. i understand i look young but if the bouncer already ID'd me there's no need for the bartender to do so as well, specially when it's busy. I didn't mind it much just thought it wasn't necessary, doesn't she trust her security guard? Love happy hour. the couch their looks comfy but very very dirty. Love the pool table. Haven't been in the bathroom but heard I shouldn't. Need better music.

If you are looking for a new place to bring a date, this is definitely NOT that place. If you are looking for a place with the feel of 1970s lower east side then this is DEFINITELY the place for you. It is easy to walk by WTTJ as the bar has no easily discernible signage and looks like a condemned tenement from the outside. But going inside you immediately realize that it was just part of the atmosphere. The drink to get when you are here is the bloody mary. Pickles, peppers, celery, sriracha and Guiness are part of what makes their unique bloodies. I highly recommend it. #MCC2013

So divey, so filthy, so dated, but so comfortable and great. The PBR is really cheap. Old furniture from a garage sale 20 years ago (probably). I wouldn't go when it is crowded, but it is awesome during the day. They have surprisingly good bloody marys. The also have one of the most graffiti'ed bathrooms in existence, but that is kind of a common occurrence around these parts.

This place looks like a living room from the 70s. If you want cheap PBR cans and sweaty dudes playing pool, this is your place, all the furniture is covered in plastic wrap.

Wow now this place redefines diveness in a dive bar. Located in my favorite east side of the city, we stumbled into this bar while waiting for some friends. This place has definitely some really wierd/interesting ambience and setup. Here are few of my observations about Johnson's - * Drinks are cheap * Tons of interesting people * Some really interesting family pictures on the walls close to bar * A couch at one corner where you will be tempted to sit down. Take my advice avoid it and you will thank me It is a good place to kill time and get drunk before to other places in LES.

A great retro bar with mismatched furniture and couches that probably lived in someone's parents' basement in the 70s. This place has so much character, and I hope it never closes. Great music. Bar prices are very reasonable and the bartenders are friendly with buy backs, if you treat them well.
