Spring Lounge
Part dive bar, part after-work hangout, Spring Lounge is the kind of place where you need never drink alone. The liquor’s been flowing on this corner since the 1920s; the wooden tables and benches reek of whiskey, hops and malt. Weeknights draw all types, but come weekends, a swarm of loud, aggressive singles takes over.

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.
