The East Village can get overrun with NYU kids, especially on a weekend nite. But Big Bar has proved immune to this. True to it’s GEN X roots, the bar remains pretty much the same as when it opened in 1990. Awesome find. A tiny bar with a big personality. Good drinks, music and always a mellow, fun time. One of the NYC bars I truly love!
