Dive enthusiasts who frequent the East Village, please breathe that sigh of relief: Odessa (117 Ave. A) isn't in danger. Though the building that houses the famously divey Ukrainian bar and restaurant is for sale, Odessa is safe.

Renowned for serving cheap, greasy food and innumerable cups of coffee, Odessa is everyone's favorite dive diner on Avenue A. Come for the pierogies, stay for the crusty company and beer. No one sleeps, no one is sober, everyone is happy.
