Give yourself a break from the craft-cocktail craze at this bona fide dive, papered with punk, disco and funk album covers. Three-buck imperial pints, pulled from kegs displayed in bathtubs behind the bar, are available in the front room; in the rear you can settle into a leather booth for some fat-tastic grub: pulled pork sliders, smoked chicken wings, and—the crown jewel—a disco burger with bacon, cheese and two glazed doughnuts replacing the bun.
