On a sketchy stretch of Fulton Street, next to a nondescript diner, this no-frills bar is keeping a low profile—which is just fine with the locals who frequent it. Settle into one of the well-used couches or chairs just inside the door, or grab one of the high tables along the exposed-brick wall. If you’re feeling talkative, the bartenders are happy to chew the fat. Or you can just settle in and enjoy the ball game on the projection TV. It’s your call.
