Holland Bar Reviews
Dive bar..... what does that even mean? To me it's a place where there's no judgement and you can be yourself. It also means that there are some eclectic folks who patronize it. Depending of the... more »
Hey Tripadvisor people - 4.5 stars? What? From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel unwelcome and that was before the resident loud-mouthed drunk started doing shots with the bartender and.... more »
Decent dive bar. Managed to have a long interesting conversation with another customer and the bartender. Probably not a place to bring a date though. OK if you're flying solo and only interested in a drink or two.
Walking down 9th Ave. on Sunday afternoon, I spotted this tiny bar on the east side of the street, and I knew I had to check it out. $5 cocktails always catch my eye, ESPECIALLY in Manhattan! Hell's Kitchen now has a lot of bars, but I wanted something a little more intimate since I was solo that day. The Holland Bar was perfect! Inside, the bar itself is long but doesn't have much seating, and I can imagine its standing-room-only at night. Two other patrons were already at the bar when I walked in, so I chose a seat at the corner of the bar near an older lady who had clearly been there all day. The bartender, an even older lady, greeted me with a smile & asked what I wanted. By the time I was settled in my seat, my drink was ready. People and bartender are nice. The Holland Bar is small, dark & dingy, and I love it. I will definitely be back!
