Visit KGB Bar - To Do In NYC Today

Every day, we post a one minute guide to one great thing happening today in New York City. We list doings that are inexpensive or completely free, social and 100% unique to New York. Designed for the curious local or savvy tourist, we aim to expose the eccentric and obvious all over NYC. Check back every morning to crack open a new nutshell


Man, we love this bar. Located on the second floor above a small performance space and decked out in red, this Communist throwback dive is plastered with posters of Iconic, fallen leaders from the land of Tsars. An endless vodka selection behind the bar and, to be honest, it is the opposite of the bar where everyone knows your name…or even cares that you’re there. With supposed ties to old Russian revolutionists, we always feel like a Bolshevik revolution is just about to go down while we're inside.

Located on The Lower East Side, the bar even hosts readings and a pretty packed event calendar. Now that the weather is turning a bit colder, this place becomes even more perfect. From Russia with love, this bar knows that with a little vodka, anyone can pronounce "Dostoyevsky" correctly.  

Time: Open Late. Really Late. Every Night.
Cost: No cover; reasonably priced drinks.
Where: 85 East 4th Street near 2nd Avenue
Category: Bars, Social Watering Holes, Literary Readings, Russia
