The Spanish Harlem follow-up to Tribeca’s beer-soaked Patriot Saloon is every bit the Cash bar as its sibling is: That is, loads of Johnny on the juke and no credit cards accepted. The $6.50 pitchers of Pabst ensure well-lubricated indiscretions, especially when aided by the busty bartenders’ copious pours of Wild Turkey.

I worked here once upon a time, so I can really speak to this place. If you're looking for a super laidback neighborhood dive bar, this is it. Drinks are dirt cheap, I'm talking $2.50 PBRs and $4 well drinks, and you can get a bucket of Coronas for $20. There's always sports games on and a jukebox that plays automatically with some good tunes. The pool table at the back is always bumping, and usually people get in on some darts in the front as well. The crowd can get wild around 2am, but for the most part everyone is really good company. I saw a lot of groups come in after playing recreational sports or to celebrate a Friday after a long week teaching. And it's guaranteed you'll have a fun, beautiful bartender!
