15. Jeremy's Ale House

Neighborhood: South Street Seaport

The bras that hang from the ceiling at Jeremy's dangle low, but not so low that you'll lose an eye to a rusty clasp. In special dive fashion, the beer is served in Styrofoam cups, because inside a good dive you don't give two shits about the environment. Inside a good dive, you know it's all hopeless out there and that the only thing you can count on is the joy of a drunk in a dank place that serves $1.50 junior cheeseburgers you wouldn't give to a dog (unless you didn't like that dog). The food at Jeremy's isn't shit necessarily, but if you're looking for food, you're looking for a different kind of bar experience. Take a walk.
