Blue & Gold Tavern on 7th between 1st ave and 2nd ave. It's a lowkey bar that tends to skew on the younger side on weekends. 169 Bar on East Broadway is an eclectic jazz/ Chinese themed bar that gets little less divey on weekends but still a great atmosphere and next Mission Chinese Food, one of the best restaurants in NYC

The 55 Baron Christopher is a world-class shit-hole, with great live music.

Hey Jeff,

Just how divey do you want to dive?  They're pretty easy to find.  Look for a faded, plastic sign, lack of windows, and no light from inside.

Although I wouldn't necessarily call these dives, I'd like to recommend McSorley's Old Ale House, at 15 E. 7th Street in the east village, or Pete's Tavern.  Both claim to be the oldest pub in New York. 

McSorley's was the last of the "men only" bars in New York.  Women weren't allowed in until August of 1970, and that was a result of legal action taken against them.  It is said that nothing has been removed from the walls since 1910.

Again, neither of them are what I'd call "a dive", but both are showing there age and faded glory.  Good places!

You cant go wrong with McSorley's Old Ale House.One of my favorite spots that I always make it a plan to go to. They only serve 2 types of beer. Light or Dark. Order the cheese and crackers and use with there house made mustard.The aged artwork, newspaper articles covering the walls, sawdust floors, and the Irish waiters and bartenders give McSorley's an atmosphere that many consider reminiscent of "Olde New York." No piece of memorabilia has been removed from the walls since 1910, and there are many items of "historical" paraphernalia in the bar, such as Houdini's handcuffs, which are connected to the bar rail. There are also wishbones hanging above the bar; supposedly they were hung there by boys going off to World War I, to be removed when they returned, so the wishbones that are left are from those that never returned.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McSorley%27s_Old_Ale_House
