Buxom ’50s pinups—not doctors—rule at this coffeeshop-turned-bar named for the notorious Bettie Page. Inside, swivel stools and slouchworthy couches are taken over by jeans-sporting Lower East Siders sipping frosty brews and bubble-gum martinis. The attentive bartenders’ modern iPod playlists never crush conversations, and the weekend hordes mercifully leave Bettie to the locals.

Visited this cozy bar, and sometimes burlesque, location on Norfolk Street.  Brick walls with metal ceilings give a vintage feel to the location.  The walls are adorned with pinup pictures of women who seem to gave at you where you sit.  Friendly bartender and good drink selections.  There is limited seating throughout the small location.  Twice a week they have a burlesque show, so make sure you get a seat early to enjoy.
