  • Perhaps my memory deceives me but I remember "Lucy" telling me back in 2000 that her name wasn't Lucy. A decade later she's relented to eponymity.
  • If Sophies is queen of the East Village, Lucys is princess. Most locals know the place for bartender-owner, Lucy who frequently switches the jukebox to polka. Shes the boss here, as it should be.
  • Expect nothing and gain everything - this place is a classic East Village dive that you can't help but fall in love with!
  • They have a jukebox with Motley Crue, Pink Floyd, & Britney Spears, along with pool tables. You'll be sitting next to some eccentric artist & some fancy person, so it's kinda cool.
  • Do not order complex drinks
  • Go find Cory. He's good people. Also, Lucy, the owner, is always about.
  • Careful if you get drunk happy feet, Lucy doesn't like for people to dance.
  • Ask for cranberry- get black pepper.
  • White. Russians.
  • I really am
  • Best dive bar, best East Village bar, best New York bar, best end-of-night bar Lucy's is all these, and a great jukebox bar too. Also in the mix, cheap (and strong) rail drinks.
  • Click done on this if you've seen Lucy fall asleep at the bar. She's the best ever!
  • great dive bar to end the evening!
  • Zyweic is served at the optimal temperature
  • Shhhh! Lucy wears a wig.. .
  • Might be the best bar in America
  • Lucy invented Spam. Ask her about it and she'll give you free shots of Spam Vodka.
  • yeah this place is so good
  • Cheap place to pool
  • Always a fun time.
