Gotham City Lounge
Find this welcoming comic-book temple tucked beneath the rattling tracks of the elevated M train—just look for the giant mural of Batman outside. If themed mixed drinks like the Green Lantern (Zubrowka, apple schnapps, Sprite) give you pause, stick with $3 PBR-and–Old Crow whiskey combos while geeking out over the bar’s deep collection of superhero memorabilia.

What's cooler than a superhero themed bar? A superhero themed bar that also has the cheapest beer & shot combo in the city. At $3 a pop (MSRP of $6 usually), you can easily get drunk without doing too much damage to your wallet. Though I can't promise the same for your liver. 

However, this place IS pretty small and grimy, so I'd recommend this place purely for the pregame. Luckily, it's also located in the heart of Bushwick, so you won't find yourself short on going out options.
