Inspired by Southern juke joints—ramshackle music halls popular in the early 1900s—this subterranean East Village den hosts DJs spinning a different genre each night of the week. Retro knickknacks line the wood-clad space, including vintage signs and antique radios. Sidle up to the 12-seat bar for whiskey cocktails and classic Southern fare, including pulled pork, mac and cheese, and deviled eggs.
