11. Coal Yard Bar
Neighborhood: East Village, Manhattan
Address: 102 1st Ave.
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.
