The Low Down


Happy Hour: Get $1 off draft beers and well drinks every day from 5pm to 8pm; better yet, happy hour recurs from 2:30am to 3:30am Monday through Thursday.

Know Before You Go: The abundance of beer and video games skews the boy-to-girl ratio. It can be a great place to meet guys--if they can be wooed away from Ms. Pac-Man.

Happy Hour: Get $1 off draft beers and well drinks Monday through Thursday from 5pm to 8pm; Saturday and Sunday it's from 2pm to 8pm.

What to Drink: The complex Brooklyn Weissbock is a local favorite with a slightly sweet finish, and the Southampton Imperial Russian Stout, served in a wine goblet, is rich and smooth.

Hilarious place to people watch.
By Hymburglar at Citysearch

Jesus, this place floored me on how hilariously douchy people can get. It is the hipster mecca, I'd say. If you want to laugh at people with Gel-Ma... Read More
