Welcome to the historic 80 year old and infamous lower east side "169 Bar"
(aka "Bloody Bucket") located on the edge of chinatown, no longer the
denizen of a variety of gangs and thugs, The 169 Bar now plays host to a
variety of musical styles of some of the best local and international
talent, specializing in acoustic music of all genres; on any given night you
might hear world, funk, r&b, folk, latin, jazz, bluegrass to name a few.
Open from 4pm to 4am with happy hour everyday from 4pm to 7pm plus a special
late night happy hour from 1am to 2am sunday to wednesday. Specials include
the "Truckers BJ" (PBR and a shot) for $3!! and buy one get one for wine,
well & beer. Also you must try the "infusions", banana rum, peach, pear,
apple, orange, & lemon vodkas along with infusion mojitos and mint juleps.
Classic bowling game, pool table, darts and a fish named "jeff" who thinks
he's a puppy round out the fun. The new owner Charles Hanson, formerly from
New Orleans has brought that city's laid back warm vibe to the LES and is a
welcome addition to the neighborhood. Worth the short diversion off the
beaten path.
