23 3rd Ave. (St. Mark's Place and E9th)
Continental NYC is hands-down one of the best dive bars in Manhattan. Located centrally just south of Union Square and just north of other bars McSorley's and St. Mark's Ale House, we unfortunately were late in actually getting over here to verify the specials they advertise.
The infamous banner that should make you either run away or run right inside is 5 shots of anything for $10 -- this special runs all day long. Not bad, you say. Well, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. everyday, everything at this bar is just $2 to $4, and 8 p.m. thru 4 a.m., just $2 to $6.
Next time you find yourself in Cooper Square, make the small trek up to Continental and take advantage of these great specials.
Amazing deals on apartments are lurking right around the corner, if you know where to look, and when.
