The Red Lion is a NYC institution -- a quintessential dive bar on Bleecker Street, in the heart of the Village, with great live music every night -- cover bands, original bands, new stuff, old stuff, fun stuff, enjoyed by NYU students and other denizens...More

Dropped in for a lunchtime drink. Empty bar. Good range of local and imported draft beers. Live music supposed to be very good. Very reasonably priced at $15 for pint and a gin and tonic.

We have been coming to red lion for almost ten years. The music is always entertaining and most bands are really great. During the week it is pretty low key but on weekends it is a different crowd and can get full and rowdy. The...More

Live music was amazing and I loved the atmosphere. However, the staff wasn't friendly at all and it looked like we were bothering her. She didn't check the table often enough and had to be asked to bring us food. The burgers were mediocre, as...More

We had our 25th reunion for our school here and it was a nice place to have drinks, get some bar food and listen to music. It can get noisy and pretty crowded but that gives the place it's NYC charm. Parking in the area...More

Stopped by for a couple of drinks and some appetizers. The pricing on the night was great. $3 beer and $4 apps. The food was ok. Nachos were plentiful, and chicken tenders were your standard frozen type. Patio was rather small. Service outside was ok....More

Nice place to go and have some fun. Good live music. A little crowded to dance but the music is hard not dancing!

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
