The folks at the bar won’t do your laundry while you sip your pint of Old Speckled Hen. The name refers to the storefront’s past life as a laundromat. Everything else is pure English pub, including the Tuck Shop meat pies, dark wood interior and earnest devotion to good beer (there are 19 varieties on tap). During happy hour, weekdays from 3 to 8pm and 1 to 8pm on weekends, all drinks are half off.

This divey bar has a fantastic happy hour: from 3 to 8pm, $3 beers and $5 craft beers, plus some other discounts on liquor and wine, but I am most preoccupied with the beer. The craft beer selection was actually good and included a lot of local beers. I had a smoked porter from Yonkers that was fantastic. My friends and I met here one night and went crazy. A happy that lasts till 8pm is a beautiful thing for people who get off work later. Also, there was only one bartender at the time, but I thought she did a stellar job of managing the crazed patrons on her own.
The tap at this suds bar is fantastic, and you can't beat the prices. There's no way the greatest beer snob can't find something to satisfy them here. There's no food, but they are cool with you bringing in takeout. The vibe is low-key, but there's always a good crowd. Sometimes a local will have one of his dogs in there. It's a neighborhood bar with regulars, but the spot often attracts people from other hoods who go for the selection and easygoing atmosphere. Pony up to the bar or tuck into one of the booths for a long night with friends. And you can count on a big crowd for some of the bigger sports games.
A great beer selection at unheard of prices. Their happy hour is legendary - $3 20oz beers. And we're talking a legit selection of european and american craft beers. They don't have a kitchen, but you can order in some delicious meat pies. There's also a good taco joint next door.
