Cool Finds: Dive Bars


Back in the old Loop, we profiled a few of our favorite dive bars.

This needs serious updating. We know you can help.  Please add a comment below, and we’ll rewrite this dated list (and give you credit, if you want…)


 “A dive bar, or simply a dive, is a drinking establishment (or sometimes a restaurant) with a dated or ramshackle appearance and atmosphere. In a dive bar, the drinks tend to be cheap.” (Wikipedia)



Billy Budd’s  – a swashbuckling tale.

Carlyn’s Cove It’s not about the food. Pub crawl staple. Great pool table and LAMP (Larchmont Area Mens Playgroup) hang. They just think we don’t know.  2118 Boston Post Road, Larchmont. 914.834.9788.

Cellar Bar  Good place to hide. No clocks. No credit cards. No girlie drinks. Live music Saturday nights. Free chili dogs Thursday nights. Live it up.   8 Railroad Way, Larchmont. 914.834.8723.

Duck Inn  Reviewer’s recollection is fuzzy. Local feel, good dart board and juke box. Friendly barkeep and sports on TV. And what’s with all the ducks?  128 W Boston Post Rd, Mamaroneck.  914. 835-8791


Kelly’s Sea Level  413 Midland Avenue, Rye. 914.967-3148.  and we hear there are more some good pubs in Rye. Anyone?

Silkie’s Saloon 454  Main Street New Rochelle 914.633-1857 .Can anyone else tell us about this place? jphresh already has.

Town House  One reviewer writes, “Dive bar. But not in a good way.”  Across from the Mamaroneck train station. We spot a trend here (see bar across from a train station above.)  217 Halstead Avenue, Mamaroneck. 914.698-9600
