What We Are

Old Man Hustle is a lower east side hot dog shack and tavern. We’re also what you might call an “art bar.”  We offer a diverse selection of craft beer and wine (most of the time… unless we have been sleeping for a few days and forgot to order again).

Most nights at Old Man Hustle there is some form of live entertainment. We regularly host live comedians, musicians, storytellers and performance artists, just to name a few. We also feature events organized by local musicians, curators and are open to programming all types of art. Check out our updated events calendar to find out more.

Hey, I almost forgot, we have a chalkboard wall, too. It can be a real “hoot” sometimes. Be sure to come to our next XXX Rated Pictionary night and play along. You’ll never look at chalk the same way again.

Rob Fischer of The New Yorker said we “celebrate raucous amateurism” and also noted the bar is a collection of the “most random group of people ever." We agree and we welcome new random people, new random ideas and new random collaborations. Come join us.
