Down the Hatch

Down The Hatch

A deliciously grungy subterranean lair for the true dive bar lovers of the world, Down the Hatch is Greenwich Village's middle finger to the ultra-lounge and VIP club culture that Manhattan often seems so fond of. Exposed brick, rickety stools, year-round Christmas lights and all, this basement bar is a home-away-from-home for beer swilling patrons both young and old who dig the stupidly cheap drinks and decidedly no-expectations atmosphere. On the weekends, cheap drinks courtesy of the "after school special" draw in a loud and shameless lot of barely legals who can be found slamming booze and flirting mercilessly over foosball games.

This legendary underground Greenwich Village institution has given our loyal followers a damn good reason to party for the last two decades and counting.
