One of the great things about this NYC Lower East Side gem is that there really is a Mary O. She's there behind the bar, taking orders, making great conversation and most important making you feel like you belong. Great beer and drinks, shepherd's pie, fish and chips and home-style chicken curry.

We entered Mary O's on a cool NYC evening and we were greeted by the warmest smile in the city. Mary is a charming as is her establishment. We enjoyed hot toddys and conversation on our visit. Can't wait to return!

Great Irish pub in East Village. Food is in credible! Crab cakes and salmon were comparable in presentation and taste to more expensive restaurants.... But at half the price. Run by Irish family. Great drinks.

When we were in NYC last year, we found this quant neighborhood Irish bar and really liked it. Mary O, the owner was very down to earth and put up with my brother's teasing. All in good fun but he can be annoying at times. The patrons were mostly regulars and all of them loved Mary. She told us about... More

Mary O'Hallaron has taken the old Irish pub and gave it a modern twist, There is traditional Irish comfort food like shepards pie, but there is also salmon, burgers, chicken dishes, vegetarian dishes, and Mary's homemade scones. The drinks are reasonably priced, and sometimes you will see Mary working the bar. Mary herself will personally see that you have the... More

Mary O's is a gem in the lower east side. Not your typical lower East Side bar. The food is very good and the atmosphere is very inviting. You will typically see Mary tending bar or personally serving dinner. Mary is a very welcoming host and treats her customers like family. Although a bit off the beaten track on Ave... More

This place is a hidden gem- A 10-12 person bar greats you across from the main door, with plenty of tables with seating to the rear of the restaurant. We stopped in to celebrate my friend's birthday and it was a perfect spot. Good music playing in the background (read- not blaring, but adding to the atmosphere) and pleasant service.... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
