The famous Manhattan dive bar The Subway Inn reopened Friday in a new location.

The original bar at 60th Street and Lexington Avenue lost its lease and closed in December after 77 years in business.

Now it will serve customers just two blocks away at 60th Street and Second Avenue.

The bar's operators said the new location is a virtual replica of the original.

"So the first thing we wanted to keep was the Subway Inn sing, the iconic Subway Inn sign. That as a must. And everything else, we wanted to bring back the old bar, wanted to bring back the booths," said owner Steven Salinas. "Unfortunately, some things couldn't have been saved, but we did use parts and pieces to everything. Every piece of equipment, every piece of structure, every piece of furniture has a part of the old Subway Inn."

The Subway Inn welcomed a number of famous people like Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio over the years. It never charged more than $6 for a beer.
