No more than a sliver of a bar, this former cappuccino hangout for local wiseguys is an appealing, nontrendy spot—pefect to duck into for a brief escape from overwhelmingly consumer-oriented Soho. Linoleum floors and rickety café tables make up the forgettable decor. Likewise, no fancy-pants cocktails here—just regular old Jack and Cokes, bottled Red Stripe and indie rock cranked loud.
