39. Vega Alta Sports Bar

Neighborhood: Concourse Village, Bronx
Address: 880 Gerard Ave.
Website: n/a

A predominantly Latin joint known for having some of the prettiest bartenders in all of Dive-land, Vega Alta is the pre- and post-Yankees game destination. The beer is middle-of-the-road cheap, with brews topping out at $6 a pop. Brush up on your Spanish; it'll help you order over the ear-bleeding roar of the bar's sound system, which is the most intense of any dive known to man.
