This refreshed old dive bar has new life as an unpretentious cocktail bar. The ceilings are low and lights are dim, and it’s an outstanding place for a few cocktails before dinner or setting off on an East Village bar crawl. You’ll always find frozen drink or two (they’re delightful even on the coldest days of winter), as well as a selection of radlers for when you want to keep things on the lighter side. Hungry? You’ll find frozen Girl Scout cookies among the offerings, and friendly bar staff ensure you’ll have a lovely night, even if you arrive solo.
Walk into this dimly lit, low-ceiling bar for great cocktails and beer-and-shot combos, but don’t leave without trying the Dazzle Ship, a blend of cachaça, lillet rosé, pamplemouse, aperol, pineapple & lime juices. YUM.
