Dim lighting and wood paneling lend a pubby feel to this low-key LES spot. Patrons (most of them local, as the name suggests) can spy on passersby from a comfortable distance inside one of two semisecluded rooms—one of them features a tiny window onto the bar, so drinkers can holler in their orders. Come during the stellar happy hour, when a measly $3 buys a draft (like Sixpoint’s Sweet Action and Strongbow Cider), a well drink or wine.
