Concierge.com's insider take:

An upscale take on a nautical-themed dive bar could be utterly obnoxious, but Rusty Knot manages to pull it off with endearing style. This is likely due to the dream team of owners, who have been behind a range of New York hot spots, including the Spotted Pig and Freeman's. Located on the West Side Highway, with exquisite views over the Hudson River, the bar has a wood-paneled rec-room decor that does a fine job of transporting you to a New England seaside town thanks to kitschy touches like a ship-wheel mirror, mounted fish, and dog-eared copies of National Geographic. Lest you forget you're in Manhattan, there's a bar menu that includes oysters, chicken liver– and-bacon sandwiches, and pretzel dogs (it's exactly what it sounds like). There's also a comprehensive menu of specialty, rum-based cocktails (try the Rusty Knot, made with rum, house sour mix, bitters, and mint simple syrup), which arrive in tiki glasses. But if you really want to live the dive-bar illusion, stick with the beer—cans start at 99 cents.

Open daily noon to 4 am.
