Roger Clark's Favorite New York Dive Bars

Manitoba's

Neighborhood: East Village
Address: 99 Ave. B
Website: manitobas.com

Roger Says: Manitoba’s is managed by the guy who was the lead singer of the Dictators, this famous punk band from the '70s. He’s known as “Handsome” Dick Manitoba, and sometimes he’s there on weekends. There are tons of punk rock photos on the walls, pictures of the Ramones, David Johansen, and David Bowie. It’s got great atmosphere. Downstairs they have air hockey, and the jukebox is one of the best in town. It’s a great mix of punk rock and oldies. You can play the Monkees, then you can play Motörhead.
