Hey, even history nerds like to drink. So if you have made your way from the ferry to Historic Richmond Town — a “living” history village and museum — to buff up on the Revolutionary War or get a taste of life in the 19th century, be sure to stick around the area for an elbow bending session after the fact.
1. Millers Ale House
Address : 2883 Richmond Avenue
Hours : Mon-Thurs 11am-1am Fri-Sat 11am-2am Sun 11am-12am
This all-american sports pub chain is most known for its dirt cheap prices (where else can you get a cocktail for 4 bucks?) and its traditional bar menu that includes loaded fries and nachos. With many beers on tap you are sure to drink all night for a reasonable price. There is a lot of energy flowing through here, with bartenders screaming orders back and forth, servers hustling burgers and beers through to patrons, and rock music cranking through the speakers.
2. Rookies Sports Bar and Grill
Address : 1547 Arthur Kill Road
Hours : 11am-4am Everyday

Monday nights here are admired for their $0.50 wings, $1 drafts from 8pm to 11pm and all night the ladies drink for free of course. There are plenty of DJ nights throughout the week, too. Don’t get it twisted though, the bar space is actually quite polished to be considered a sports bar. Its a champagne environment with spare change prices, as the owner Bridget says.
3. Joyce Tavern
Address: 3823 Richmond Avenue Staten Island,
Hours : Mon-Thurs 12pm to 10pm Fri to Sat 12pm-12am Sun 12pm to 10pm
This old-school, Irish-themed pub features a regular assortment of live bands playing. It’s a wonderful spot to get a tasty cheeseburger and a cheap beer while feeling like you are in throwback Ireland. It has a very pleasant atmosphere, and the bartenders always wear shirts and ties.
