The perfect neighborhood dive bar.
  • Pool Table
  • Darts
  • Juke Box
The best local bar in the city! It doesn't matter what you're wearing or who you are, you are welcome at this bar. There are only 2 employees - Billy and Mark. Brothers and owners of this establishment will treat you like you are one of their own. One of the greatest features of the bar is the juke box - Billy and Mark have hand selected a mix of blues, 80's rock, and classic rock. You will find nothing like it anywhere else. You can also shoot a game of pool or throw some darts. \n\nOpen 365 days a year - so celebrate a holiday at Billymark's West. \n\nBillymark's is happy to host a personal party or corporate event and they're always looking to add new "regulars" to the list. Stop by and see why so many people agree this is the best dive bar in NYC!

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 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

Best dive bar in MYC

Don't expect models or snobbery, but if you want to listen to the jukebox, watch sports or shoot pool with real New Yorkers, go hang out with Billy or Mark - they're in there every night....Highly recommended

Worst bar in the city. DO NOT GO HERE! Someone will fight you....

This could be the rudest most unfriendly bar i the city. The owners are the bartenders and they won't pay any attention to you, but then when you don't have a drink they yell at you to either drink or leave. If you talk back they'll send one of their mentally challenged goons over to try and scare you. If this happens just drop them a simple mathematical addition question to really confuse them while you run for the door. Seriously, I don't recommend going here. You're only asking for trouble from one of the owners or their half-wit friends...

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.
