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!

How can you NOT like it here?

After family and career, a man's relationship with his neighborhood watering hole has been a most important one. Not a problem for the locals of northern Chelsea. Here, people are drinkin, joshin, listenin to tunes, shootin pool, throwin darts. You're a regular from the minute you walk in. There is a Billy, and there is a Mark, and at least one of the two of them will be there when you walk in--so say hi, grab a brew, and enjoy!

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!

DIVE BAR-YEAH-YEAH-YEAH

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.

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 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

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

The definition of dive...

I've been a patron of Billymark's since they first opened up, and have absolutely loved it. Tons-o-fun and tons-o-drinks. The bar tenders are great... they'll dance and sing the night away with everyone, all while mixing up the most lethal concoctions you could ever dream of. All they need now is beer on tap to go along with everything else. And don't forget the new pool table, the killer juke box, and the pin ball machine. I highly recommend Billymark's to anyone who will set foot inside. It is THE dive to be at!

Penza-riffic.

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.
