Fantastic bar with none of the modern false feeling we seem to get these days. Great beer and spot on service with free hotdogs with every beer if you want one. Full of characters and would loved to have spent more time here.

Really low prices! A pint of Stella Artois was $5. Didn't stay long enough to witness the free hotdogs... unfortunately the Mrs wasn't impressed with the decor... (red gaffer tape on the chairs and benches). Can look a bit rough but the bar staff are friendly and quick to serve. They were showing the West Ham and Man City game... More

Known as a dive bar,by locals. Beer at the lowest prices in NYC. There is a down side---think of the most weary/worn bar in your home town--and double it !! On the plus side,the atmosphere and jukebox are tremendous. Also,that afore mentioned cheap beer/drinks,are pretty darn good !! Oh!, Did i mention the free,constant supply of hotdogs ?

My favourite bar in New York. Always busy, drinks are very cheap, $3 a pint, $7 a pitcher. Bar staff were great and you get free hot dogs too. What's not to love

This Bar was recommended to me by friends who run a bar. Cheap drink and free hotdogs, this was how it was described to me. Bang, that,s exactly what it was like. I would not recommend this place if you're looking for waiter service and silver cutlery. The beer was coming in at $4 a pint and a Black Russian... More

The big attraction here is the price...3 bucks for a pint and a free hot dog thrown in if you want one! Not a very big place so can get busy on a weekend night but service is quick and the choise of beer is excellent. Not recommended for fine dining, you will stick to the seats / carpet and... More

This was a fun stop on our Saturday group Christmas pub crawl. As a group of 12, we entered the popular iconic bar, to find a fun crowd, great beer selection and fast friendly bar service. Rudy's had perfect music, fun vibe and crowd was in great spirits. Great dive bar - classic fun.

We had a weeks holiday in New York and we heard this place was fun so we had a night out here and we had such a good night, bud pitchers are $10 and you get nearly 4 glasses out of it and a glass is normally $3 each so good value, free hotdogs are free if you want one,... More

We wanted to check this bar out for it's beer prices - $3 draughts for Bud, $4.00 for Bud Light. Stella's were $4.00 as well. Interior is as you would expect. Dark, dive bar. We did not try the free hotdogs and were subsequently praised for our decision :-). Booths are not overly comfortable, as they've been recovered with lumpy... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
