Appreciating a classic

Given the news that the Holland Bar may be closed for good, it's time to tip our hat to some of the like-minded bars in the city. (Dive bars. Lonely old man bars. Whatever you prefer!) Such as the well-traveled Subway Inn.

the pizza place next door to the subway inn is pretty good too. and there's also another bar nearby on lexington between 60-61 on the west side of the street north of the diesel store.

my favorite bar was mare chiaro in little italy before they renovated.

made a mistake about the bar on lexington. i'm thinking of gino's restaurant which is pretty cool too.

Thanks for the comment...Yes! I loved Mare Chiaro too before the renovation...It still has its charms.

And Gino is a classic. Small bar. But I love any place that still has a 50s-style phone booth.
