A cool, relaxed bar without much fuss. Considering the area is filled with trendy, expensive bars, this one stands out by being a bit more laid back and cheap! I was there on a Sunday and unfortunately a very rowdy group sat next to us, which made it quite hard to hear my friends speaking. However, I think this was just the luck of the draw and being a Sunday, maybe our ears were just a little more sensitive! The staff are friendly and the general atmosphere is mostly pretty chilled, but still with a fun vibe. The décor is kind of a cross between a typical dive bar and an English church with wooden tables and church pews as benches. I enjoyed coming here and would definitely come back.
My favorite "dive bar" in the heart of NoLita is Spring Lounge. It's a no frills drinking bar with an admirable beer selection and locals-only feel. The back room provides some relief from the bustling bar area on weekends but every Friday or Saturday night I've walked in, it's been a full, lively place. Bartenders are attentive and friendly. Only down side is a rundown old bathroom that could make a phone booth feel roomy, but that's my only complaint. Other bars around the area may have a more pretentious or upscale feel, but if you're in the mood for beers with the guys or meeting some new people, Spring Lounge is a good spot.
