“Don't wear your Sunday's best because cheap beer means messy guests.”
“Cheap drinks and food, ridiculous decor and bartenders that encourage you to get on the bar and dance.”
“As drunk as I may have been, I 'm pretty positive I also saw their food menu boasting the same heavenly prices with many items well less than $5, and from what I hear the bar grub is pretty yummy.”
“But, WARNING: This place is still a great place, but try and avoid the bartender named PATIENCE at all cost!”

$1 dogs, friendly service, friendly crowd, faux r*dneck.
Is this the best bar in New York? I donno, but it sure was the best bar we've been to in A LONG TIME!! Take the giant allegator with on the ceiling-- please! NO DON'T! It's great. And there's a lot more.
There's the hugely friendly crowd. (And it did get crowded between 10:30 and mid-night. Then it grew quiet again.)The free pitchers of beer. The bubbly and... er... endowed waitresses. The most affable bouncer I've seen this side of a certain bar in Boston. The most ethnically, racially, age-ally diverse crowd I've seen outside Times Square on December 31st. C&W and 50s music on the jukebox. GREAT B@LLS OF FIRE! What else could you want? How about $1 hotdogs? $1.50 onion rings? Okay, throw them in too. Yeah, the music could have used a 40 decibel reduction in volume-- a common complaint. But in this case, a minor one compared with the faux redn*ck joy of the place. --Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers.
great down-to-earth bar.
If you remember the Village Idiot, (RIP,) this is its cleaner, younger brother. Like the Idiot, it's populated by hot bartenders, cheap beer, and a crowd of people looking for a good time. Unlike the Idiot, it hasn't fully developed that distinctive layer of beer/vomit/filth that gave the Idiot its distinctive stench & charm. (this can be a good or bad thing, depending on who you ask!)
It's a great spot to meet up with the guys and have endless cheap rounds of beer. But if you're looking for a nice quiet bar to go to for a romantic night with your girl, you'd be better off looking elsewhere!
Bartenders rock. Definately the coolest bartenders in manhattan. They literally pull girls up on the bar to dance and are great with buybacks. the drinks are cheap and flow like water, so tip those girls well they work their butts off when it gets busy. Some nights its slow, but when a good crowd comes in the place turns into a partyfest! Food isn't great, but tastes better when your drunk, plus its cheap. But all in all, the bartenders defintaely make the bar because even if it's not busy they make sure you have a good time and they're pretty damm hot too.
Best time in New York. I went here for the first time last summer and i had the best night ever experienced. The Patriot is exactly what you want in a bar. Cheap drinks and food, ridiculous decor and bartenders that encourage you to get on the bar and dance. The Patriot remains the only bar worthy enough to dance on. And when you are up there, the bartenders poor Jack down your throat. This gem is one not to be missed. Don't wear your Sunday's best because cheap beer means messy guests. The Patriot-a hell of a good time.
Check your politics at the door--big drinks at heartland prices bolster spirits at this bi-level dive.. The same folks behind the Village Underground are now serving up $6 pitchers of beer, well drinks for $2.75 and burgers for $1 (including tax, mind you)--and ritzy Tribeca hasn't seen such a square deal since the Teddy Roosevelt administration. Country classics blast from the jukebox and an American flag adds to the decor, which includes an extensive collection of neon beer signs and a giant taxidermic crocodile. Despite the accoutrements, the vibe at this cavernous tavern is more post-frat than patriotic. Friday and Saturday nights reign in a rowdy crowd: Ladies dance on the bar (partly for the rush, partly for the free shots), and drink buy-backs are the norm. The weeknight scene may be slightly dreary, as pretty midriff-baring bartenders attend to older solo drinkers, battered and broken by the daily grind. Fortunately, the bras and neckties that hang haphazardly from the ceiling serve as a reminder that the weekend crowd will always return, upbeat debauchery in tow.
Best Country Music Bar In Lower Manhattan!!!!. Well, the Village Idiot closed and the Patriot opened. Unfortunately the Patriot will never match the fun atmostphere of the Idiot, but it can get close at times depending on the night. There are times I've gone to the Patriot on the weekends and it was so packed that I had to squeeze my way to the BR. Other times on a weekend, I could literally count only five people in the place including myself and the bartender. To this day, can't explain why this is..........but if you happen to catch The Patriot on a "good night", it can be a lot of fun. But, WARNING: This place is still a great place, but try and avoid the bartender named PATIENCE at all cost!! She normally works Wednesday evenings until 8pm, I'm not sure what other shifts she works. She has dirty blond hair, disgustingly skinny, and wears glasses. I have witnessed her on several occasions take $20 bills, then claims that the person only gave her a 5 or a 10, and simply pockets the rest as a tip to herself. She's very sneaky and has a really nasty attitude, except towards 5-6 alcoholic regulars who come in every time she works. I have also seen her refuse service completely to people just because she has some kind of personal grudge against them. I really hope the owner Tom catches this and they eventually get rid of her.
The cheapest drinkin' in Manhattan.
well, tied with Yogi's, the uptown counterpart to this place.
Not a place to bring your grandma unless your grandma is a biker that can outdrink you.
The bartenders are usually attractive, competent and friendly. There's quite a bit of turnover but the veteran tenders kick a lot of ass.
Crowds are hit or miss; sometimes it's very quiet sometimes it's crazy busy.
An awesome place for a cheap, drunk, fun time.
Bring your drinkin shoes.
"Cheap Beer and Cheap Women". The Patriot has become like a second home to me. Ok, maybe tied for first. I was thrilled to find this wonderfully divey place within my downtown hangout area. The bartenders are as beautiful as they are friendly, and they are insanely generous with the buy backs. Being an after work spot, The Patriot is usually at its best on Thursday and Friday nights, where the bartop dancing girls are plenty. The Patriot also boasts a great country jukebox. Don't like country? I didn't either when I first started coming here, but now my iPod is full of it. The music is catchy and infectious, moreso when associated with a hell of a time at this great bar.
I Love This Bar. I like my girl friend, I like my pickup truck, but I Love This Bar!
One of The Best Bars In All of Manhattan. Place is a hit or miss. There have been times that I've been to The Patriot on the weekends and the place was completely dead. Other times it can be elbow to elbow with girls dancing on the bar. Beers are only $3 per bottle.Bartenders are extremely friendly and make you feel like you're right at home. Jukebox blasts mostly country, southern rock, rockabilly,and some oldies too.There is definitely room to dance. Onion rings and fries are great..but I wouldn't eat their burgers.Ladies,if you dance on the bar you will earn a free shot of whatever you want!! Ignore the "Unpatriotic" reviewer because he obviously doesn't know what he's talking about. They have tables and chairs in case you want to bring a date or a large group of people. Yogi's on the upper west side at Broadway&76th St. is also a great dive owned by the same person.
