Unpretentious bar with beer from a fridge, a jukebox & a 1970s wood-paneled-basement vibe.- Google
People talk about happy hours, cheap drinks, plastic covered, rec room and pabst blue ribbon

Keep your expectations low and your pretension even lower. This is a dive bar of dive bars. It looks like a really crappy den. The couch is pretty ratty. All of this is part of the charm at what makes this bar special. It's a great place to go hang out with friends and get drinks and not have to deal with the bullshit of everything else. The low budget decor of the bar is primarily for people who are fed up with the bells and whistles of other places. Definitely a must-go just to soak in the atmosphere.

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.

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

Dark and dirty dive bar that is surprisingly homey. Cheap beer ($2 PBR), awesome plastic covered sofas. Bring hand sanitizer.
