    Simple cocktails are made surprisingly well here, and I always encounter a nice bartender. The crowd is bearable unlike in most other places, and I've always found a place to sit. Rad spot.

    My local go-to bar. Foosball table, properly curated jukebox, roomy, drink specials, all around affordable. This place is NEVER crowded, which makes it a solid spot.

    If you miss happy hour, don't worry: $5 will get you a PBR and a shot of house whiskey any time.

    Great dive. I like the bartending staff. Had to start with the B Side Special, PBR and a whiskey shot.

    A favorite dive in Alphabet City. Always quiet in the back. I hope it never closes!

    Start with a trip to the jukebox for some Hold Steady and Demander. Then get yourself a gimlet and cozy up to the locals at the bar. This place is a neighborhood gold standard.

    I thought I was hearing things during happy hour when the bartender said my gin & tonic was $2.50. And it was quite strong, too.

    NOTE: the locals that celebrate their birthday here are not random and they are usually followed by our fave photographer Deneka- and it is always a special evening

    The essence of Alphabet city; never too much of a dive. Elegance juxtaposed to ambiance powered by an eclectic crowd and a limited jukebox. Do I want to say Bohemian? Maybe, lovely overall..

    Death from Above 1979 and other amazing punk rock classics on the jukebox.
