Last time I was in Billymark's West, with its percolating undertone of laid-back conversation and upper layer of cool, hit songs you remember singing in the shower way back when before you got all stiff and concerned with life, I remember thinking that this is the sort of place Hemingway must have been in when he talked about the whirl and gentle tug of happiness with the walls spinning and spinning while you sip the drink in front of you, surrounded by good people and their quiet comfortable lives. I suppose our lives aren't always quiet and comfortable, but when you're at the bar with one of the Penza's serving you drinks and chatting it up, it just seems that way.\n\nBesides, McSorley's is a run-down price-inflated teeny-bopper bar that's lost any character that artists like Edward Hopper and John Sloan endowed it with decades ago. So don't go there.

Best bar ever

Checked this place out after searching on the net. Its exactly as it says - good ol fashioned fun. Come for a drink, be polite and talk to the regulars and you'll have a great time. Come with an attitude then forget about it. Had a great night with the boys. Had the owner greet us immediately and pour a couple of shots and it was superb from then on. Forget the club scene if you want good jukebox music, shoot a game of pool and get drunk. Best time I had in NY. Shout out to Mike and Billy from the boys from downunder.

Worst bar I've ever been to

Like others have said... haven for anti-gay sentiment, in Chelsea no less!! Just in the short amount of time I was there, bartender regularly called people ""fagot"" and when they protested, he threw them out still yelling obscenities as they exited. And all the clientele seemed to back his actions! Felt like I was in the Twilight Zone!\n\nAnd if that wasn't bad enough, the place is really dirty (beyond ""dive bar"" standards), smells bad, the bathrooms are gross. \n\nDon't waste your time or money!

Do not patronize

Haven for anti-gay sentiment. The bartender, Billy or Mark or a*shole, called my friend a f*ggot. When I confronted him about his language, he called me a fat white b*itch. Please, let this place close.

Best place to meet a friend!! and get a really good drink!

I had an internship in NY for a few months, and, though i knew almost noone, the guys at Billymarks' took me in and introduced me to everyone and I met a ton of people! Billymarks is the PERFECT dive bar! I LOVE the bartenders and the regulars (ESPECIALLY RALPHIE!! and CURLY JOE and those other guys who are AWESOME!!) and they are a true familiy to anyone who left their actual family at home to pursure their dreams in NY... Billy and Mark and the regulars are one of a kind and deserve the award for the best dive bar in the city, hands down!!! I just hope they remember me affer all these months (but even if they don't i'll be back to remind them, because they always say their children don't leave for good, they always come back, and don't worry... I'LL BE BACK!!... and they better still have my picture on the wall!!!) Long story short... GO TO BILLYMARKS!!!

Truly a gem

On a solo weekend visit through the city for work, I decided on my off night to hoof it through the streets, determined to stop at the first place that seemed welcoming to the wayward stranger. After walking for two hours all the way from 50th down to 14th and to various points east and west, I had rolled snakeyes.\n\nThen, after seeing a person stumble out of the bar and hearing loud (loud) music, I knew that Billymark's was my place. It is all everyone prior has described, and after poking your head in the various scenester bars located throughout the area, it becomes much more enticing. Along with 119, it is on my must-do list for every trip hereafter.

Once you hit the front door you feel it, it's that feeling you get from good people, great music and total escape.Talk about getting away from the everyday do's and dont's in Billymark's no one cares. It's a step into time,when it was a good time.

Best place in the City!

Since I am in New York about once a month, I decided to go out and find a good neighborhood bar. After a quick search I found it. The place is something that reminds you of Cheers and has it's regular patrons. After a brief conversation, I was amerced into a fun loving atmosphere. This place does not care how you are dressed or where you come from. They do however, take care of people and look down on people who have bad attitudes. Billy went outside and smoked with my cousin and I on the street and we talked about everything from Corvettes to horse racing (the Kentucky Derby). Man, are these guys knowledgeable. I will be back each and every time I am in the city. \n\n
