Tom & Jerry’s Address: 288 Elizabeth New York, NY 10012 (at Houston – East Village)
Tom & Jerry’s Phone Number: (212) 260-5045
Tom & Jerry’s, in the East Village, is a retreat from NYC life. A dive bar that attracts media industry types, it’s walls are adorned with paintings that one would never think to put in the same room, along with the heads of large game. It’s cash only but the drinks are so cheap you’ll be able to easily cover the bill with whatever you have on you. Overall, it’s a good bar for business drinks, casual dates and first dates, guys’ nights out and, as previously mentioned, cheap drinks.
Good For Guys’ Nights Out: If you really just want a drunk night with the boys and aren’t necessarily looking to hook up, this is a great spot. There’s generally not a huge selection of, um, “top talent,” but that makes it perfect for getting together to drink way too much without worrying about caring what any hotties might think.
Good For First Dates/Casual Dates: Sometimes you’re not looking to necessarily impress but rather just want a place you can sit and talk over a few drinks. If that’s the case, Tom & Jerry’s is a great pick.
Good For Business Drinks: Particularly if your business drinks are with someone in media – suggesting this place to an editor is sure to impress because, from my experience, they all seem to be extremely loyal to the dive bar.
