Although the 1980s movie of the same name conjures high-school hell, this East Village bar makes chillin’ in the classroom rather cool. Artsy locals perch on school chairs, sip $5 drafts and scribble messages on the chalkboard-covered bathroom walls. Live DJs enhance the quirky ambience several nights a week.
