Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Housed in a former art gallery and shop, this inappropriately named hangout – it’s actually right on Broadway Market – has won a loyal following since it opened at the end of 2008.

The owners have said that it’s modelled on a now-defunct bar in New York’s East Village, and you can kind of see what they mean without having been there. Certainly, the menu’s mix of notable beers (Brooklyn on tap, along with a number of other excellent bottled American imports) with worthwhile cocktails (rooted in tradition, but modified for the modern drinker) is unusual for the UK but pretty common across the ocean.

The vibe is low-key, but atmosphere develops easily in the dimly lit, L-shaped room as the place fills, which it does most evenings. Events across the main bar and the downstairs room include regular gigs and a knitting club.
