Official after-work bar of team foursquare. If both bathrooms do not have foursquare stickers on the doors/mirrors/toilets, someone's getting fired... #justsaying
foursquare hometown favorite, the staff may-or-may-not hate us, but they certainly can't ignore us
The wifi password is the bar's phone number (look for it written on a piece of paper behind the bar)
A favorite of Voice staffers-They have a great happy hour ($2 off drafts/well drinks) that you can find using our Happy Hours app! http://www.gotime.com/nyc/mobile
Fun fact: Scratcher is Irish slang for a fold-away cot. This is also the closest decent bar to ITP. No TVs!
Tons of menus behind the bar!
Best non-blogger blogger bar in the East Village
You might run into a super cool foursquare employee. She is the mayor! You better recognize.
$6 PBR + shot of Evan Williams special Sunday to Thursday. $2 off drafts and well drinks during happy hour, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
One of the happiest places on earth. BYO pizza, claim a table, order a Guinness. Maybe a whisky, I don't know, let's get crazy.
Have a drink at scratcher and then go to curry ya a few blocks away.
if Kevin K. was not the Mayor this place would rock.
Always scratch your itch. Come on Sundays with the wedding section to drink fine bourbon and listen to jazz standards.
Go on a Monday or Wednesday when Renata works! She's the best!
A good place to let your Irish drinking gene off its leash.
I got my butt farmed here
consistent great live music on Sunday nights!
Be a pal and drop your empty glass/bottle off at the bar. Nobody likes a messy home.. err bar.
must visit my old mates behind the bar some time soon...
They have Ommegang Harvest on draft. Get it.
Don't get an old fashioned!
Try ignoring the terrible tip from Red Bull.
have fun with the LearnVest team here, after work drinks!!
I go here weekly to celebrate my $5 Astor place barber school haircuts - ha! I agree one of the best Guinness pours in all of downtown. No idea what it's like late nites, but it's excellent early on.
Check out the live music, Sunday evenings @ the Scratcher Sessions.
I'm surprised, Wednesday night was almost full. Nice place to grab a drink and talk with friends.
Cozy low lighting place ideal for winter. Happy hour until 8 and good beers on tap.
One of my favorite dive bars in the east village.
Generally quite, cozy and friendly dive with decent beers on tap. What more do you need?
Kind of hate the seats here. Kind of love everything else. Completely unassuming allowing you to fade into the ambiance.
Cute, cozy bar perfect for hanging out with friends and grabbing a drink, maybe a date
A nice dive with lots of seating and good drink specials. Can definitely get crowded
Literally the worst, most inefficient bartender I have ever seen. And I drink a lot.
On Sunday nights beginning at 7:15, The Scratcher has free live acoustic music, performed by Irish and local artists. Be sure to contribute to the artist tip bucket that is passed around.
Cool little bar that ill def visit everytime I'm in town!
Go on Monday nights when Grace is bartending. <3 <3 <3
This place is past its prime. But it's still a good dive bar to stop at on the way home for a water.
Great for happy hour - arrived just after six and got a Lagunitas IPA for $4!
I like this place
Get your astrology reading here, back of the bar some nights, $10 for 10 minutes covering your entire life.
@Dens foursquare stickers on Guys side confirmed.
Sometimes they put magic hat in the Sierra Nevada tap
Dive done right. Great crowd, great drinks and no tv's. Grab a drink, take a seat, and enjoy. Can't go wrong. Also, be wise with your restroom breaks. Can get crowded quick back there.
Best Boddingtons pour anywhere
Before it was the official Foursquare bar, I lived 100 yards down the block and enjoyed liberally poured Maker's rocks here after work.
Just met the founder of 4sq here... Awesome!!
