This East Village watering hole combines old-timey style with frat-house tastes. The loungelike space, complete with parlorworthy wallpaper and a pressed-tin–sided bar, features a menu of Jell-O shots, such as the Jell-O Surfer on Acid: pineapple Jell-O, Malibu Rum, cranberry juice and Jagermeister ($3). The list of specialty cocktails, like the Siberian Kiss made with citron vodka, Fra Angelico liqueur, Bailey’s and crème de cacao with a frozen Hershey’s kiss on the bottom ($10), suggests that you don’t need a password to get in.
