Nearly Century-Old Dive Bar Rudy’s Reopens In Hell’s Kitchen

Free hot dogs and cheap drinks, oh how we’ve missed you!

Manhattanites were devastated when beloved Dive Bar in Midtown West closed its door in March of 2020, sadly along with many other venues. But on July 29th, Rudy’s took to Facebook to announce their highly anticipated return on August 1st.

Visitors can once again step through the establishments original door and be transported to a different era.

The spot was rumored to be a speakeasy back in 1919 that used to welcome notorious figures such as Al Capone. Rudy’s was even one of the first places to receive a New York liquor license soon after the Prohibition ended in 1933.

Passersby can identify the bar with its iconic Pig statue standing tall and proud outside the front entrance for nearly 20 years, better known by the name Baron.

The dive bar offers incredibly cheap prices as low as $3 pints, $12 pitchers, and yes all purchases come with a free hot dog!
