Fast become an East Village favorite, Coal Yard is famous for its eclectic jukebox (Dead Kennedys smack up against Etta James) and infamous for it's brawny female owner, a woman who could kick the shit out of you without breaking a sweat. Two-dollar Michelob and mad tats on punk rockers of all ages. Coal Yard might be new, but you wouldn't know it to get trashed there.
