About Billymark's West

  • Juke Box
  • Pool Table
  • Darts

The best local bar in the city! It doesn't matter what you're wearing or who you are, you are welcome at this bar. There are only 2 employees - Billy and Mark. Brothers and owners of this establishment will treat you like you are one of their own. One of the greatest features of the bar is the juke box - Billy and Mark have hand selected a mix of blues, 80's rock, and classic rock. You will find nothing like it anywhere else. You can also shoot a game of pool or throw some darts.

Open 365 days a year - so celebrate a holiday at Billymark's West.

Billymark's is happy to host a personal party or corporate event and they're always looking to add new "regulars" to the list. Stop by and see why so many people agree this is the best dive bar in NYC!

Truly a gem – On a solo weekend visit through the city for work, I decided on my off night to hoof it through the streets, determined to stop at the first place that seemed welcoming to the wayward stranger. After walking for two hours all the way from 50th down to 14th and to various points east and west, I had rolled snakeyes.

Then, after seeing a person stumble out of the bar and hearing loud (loud) music, I knew that Billymark's was my place. It is all everyone prior has described, and after poking your head in the various scenester bars located throughout the area, it becomes much more enticing. Along with 119, it is on my must-do list for every trip hereafter.

All Walks of Life – In this bar you will find all walks of life from all over the world.

You will find regulars such as Jimmy Queen, Gay Al, Bye Billy and English Charlie (this cool guy actuall painted the bar throughout for them in their time of need)

A home from home.

REAL New York bar with a late 70's feel! – BillyMark's is one of the last bars in New York where you can truly engage in interesting conversation without worrying if you're wearing the "right clothes" or know the "right people". Walk in and you're instantly transported to the New York of the late 70's/ early 80's; you might even believe that Ed Koch is still mayor! You can tell that Billy truly loves bartending and making everyone who walks in feel like they're part of the party. Part of the charm lies in its location, next to the back entrance of the Port Authority bus terminal on 9th Ave. Relatively safe in the daytime, although I wouldn't recommend women walking alone around there at night. Instead, get some of your other girlfriends, forget the stupid trendy lounges, come into BillyMark's, speak with some INTERESTING people, and have a GREAT time!

The perfect neighborhood dive bar. – Even when it's bright and sunny outdoors, Billymark's West has a hazy, dark feeling inside. The jukebox pours out steady servings of anthem rock and R&B classics, the drinks are cheap and the doors open early enough to catch both returning night-shift workers and the day-shift types who want to get a round or two in before they punch the clock. Refreshingly unpretentious in a city full of over-done, over-hyped watering holes, this bar gets its atmosphere wholly from its customers and staff. And even though everyone seems to know each other already, hammy co-owner Mark Penza and the bartenders are incredibly generous to newcomers.

What a New York always was. – New York, at least my New York, was always represented by the neighborhood bar. The emphasis is on neighborhood. We fantasized about it from TV with Cheers!, or cop dramas that visited the venerable watering hole in Kojak or The Equalizer.

Billy Mark West is the last hold out to what a true New York bar is. From out of towners who have no idea why they drop in who in turn leave with a true feel of New York and its denizens to the neighborhood who wanders in and always know they are welcome.

No attitude, no airs, no boring wall streeters who have nothing else to talk about but their work day, no wannabes, no euro trash just the proper mix of what makes this city truley the greatest city in the world.

Billy Marks West is the holdover to what makes this city great.

Great local bar – It's almost too clean to be called a dive bar, but everything elese fits. It's a great homey kinda place. EVERYONE is ALWAYS made to feel welcome. Variety of cleintele. Cheap (dive bar definition) drinks/beer, great pours. It doesn't get any better as a place to drop in for a regular drink.

How can you NOT like it here? – After family and career, a man's relationship with his neighborhood watering hole has been a most important one. Not a problem for the locals of northern Chelsea. Here, people are drinkin, joshin, listenin to tunes, shootin pool, throwin darts. You're a regular from the minute you walk in. There is a Billy, and there is a Mark, and at least one of the two of them will be there when you walk in--so say hi, grab a brew, and enjoy!

The definition of dive... – I've been a patron of Billymark's since they first opened up, and have absolutely loved it. Tons-o-fun and tons-o-drinks. The bar tenders are great... they'll dance and sing the night away with everyone, all while mixing up the most lethal concoctions you could ever dream of. All they need now is beer on tap to go along with everything else. And don't forget the new pool table, the killer juke box, and the pin ball machine. I highly recommend Billymark's to anyone who will set foot inside. It is THE dive to be at!
