End up in here every time I go to New York. Reliably cheap ($3 beers, $2 in happy hour), $1 pop corn and cheap juke box ($1 for 4 songs). This bar never changes which is reassuring,it is a great find.
Reasonable prices, lots of locals, great staff, good atmosphere in this dive bar downstairs on St Marks place - near St Marks hotel
I went here with my hubby and friend who lives in NY. St. Mark's is her favorite street in NY and after spending some time in Grassroots I understand why. Drinks are cheap for NY, bartender was funny and personable. We are all from Philadelphia...More
It's divey, the bartenders can be moody and sometimes it smells...and yet I find myself drinking here all the time. The prices are great and so is the jukebox. I think the bartenders get moody because so many obnoxious people (including myself) hang out here.
