  • As Anthony Bourdain said... "You know, the kind of place it's okay to drink during the day." A full cross section of what Hells Kitchen was and is probably about to lose. Gritty and real... small.....  more »

  • Decent dive bar. Managed to have a long interesting conversation with another customer and the bartender. Probably not a place to bring a date though. OK if you're flying solo and only interested in a drink or two.
  • Walking down 9th Ave. on Sunday afternoon, I spotted this tiny bar on the east side of the street, and I knew I had to check it out. $5 cocktails always catch my eye, ESPECIALLY in Manhattan! Hell's Kitchen now has a lot of bars, but I wanted something a little more intimate since I was solo that day. The Holland Bar was perfect! Inside, the bar itself is long but doesn't have much seating, and I can imagine its standing-room-only at night. Two other patrons were already at the bar when I walked in, so I chose a seat at the corner of the bar near an older lady who had clearly been there all day. The bartender, an even older lady, greeted me with a smile & asked what I wanted. By the time I was settled in my seat, my drink was ready. People and bartender are nice. The Holland Bar is small, dark & dingy, and I love it. I will definitely be back!
