Just because…sometimes you need to give props to an old mainstay like this Hell’s Kitchen joint which has been around since 1933.  free hot dogs and suds. um, winner combo. that is Rudys Bar New York not to mention the ROCKING song accompanying the website.  Get your java on early. It loops over and over. Tommy Ramone is on the photo list.  Go to the menu and listen to Claire Robinson’s “Let’s All Go To Rudy’s.”  This place truly is a classic dive in every sense of the word…DIVE.  gives me a glimmer of hope on a dreary, cold Friday.

The well-worn, classic website boasts: Rudy’s bar opened in 1933 by the Rudy family. It was one of the first liquor licenses issued in New York City after prohibition ended. The present owner, Jack, started drinking in Rudy’s in 1943 when he was 16; back when Hell’s Kitchen was really Hell’s Kitchen! Rudy’s may be the most well known bar in N.Y.C., with a long and colorful history. The stories Jack can tell. Rudy’s still has the original wood door from the day it opened. When you walk through it the feel of the old neighborhood saloon is still there with cheap beer, free hot dogs, and great people!
