The Cherry Tavern allows the unpretentiously thirsty to carry on with excellence the vanishing East Village tradition of shooting pool, getting drunk, getting phone numbers and going home. Poker-playing-dog pictures, '70s porno-mag-style wood paneling and furniture just comfortable and sturdy enough to keep you off the floor make this tiny room so loser-friendly it's hard to believe you're not in Red Hook. Here the chatter is still about band gigs—not stock options or real estate ventures. Both pool table and jukebox get a decent workout beneath the kind of flattering, subdued red lights that have caused many improvised dates to fail the daylight test the next morning.

Trademark Drink

Tijuana special (Tecate beer and a tequila shot), $6
