Milady’s Phone Number: (212) 226-9340
Some nights, going out is not about the scene – sometimes I’m just in the mood to drink too much and hide from the world for a few hours. When that’s the case, I almost always seek out the nearest dive bar – the dirtier the better. In that vein, allow me to present Milady’s – one of the greatest, dirtiest dive bars in NYC.
This past Sunday, the above mentioned situation was happening for me in a big way – however, because I am an insanely lucky person, I got a call from a buddy who was in the same funk. He volunteered to swing by my place, pick me up in his overpriced car and whisk me away to a place that has almost certainly never seen the likes of an Aston Martin parked on its curb. And it was exactly what I needed.
Milady’s, in the West Village, is a great NYC bar for cheap drinks, casual dates, guys’ nights out and finding a one night stand to take home.
Good For Casual Dates: Probably not the place to take someone you’re looking to impress – or someone is particularly concerned with cleanliness – but, if you’re taking out a girl like me, who can handle (and often prefers) an extremely chill night, Milady’s is a great place.
The bar has a pool table, an awesome, old school juke box (as in, the kind that makes you flip through actual outdated CD covers as you make your selections) and plenty of room to sit and chat while trying to avoid making contact with too many surfaces.
Good For One Night Stands: You probably won’t pick up the hottest person you’ve ever boned, but there is a very good chance you’ll find the most drunk person you’ve ever boned. If it’s an “any hole will do” type of situation, Milady’s is a good place to catch your prey – and sometimes you might even luck out by stumbling upon someone who isn’t a regular but, rather, has just had a bad day.
