This sleek, wood-drenched sports bar is one of the busier weekend contenders along Second Avenue’s uptown stretch. The pub’s happy hour of $4 pints promptly starts at noon on weekends and 4 p.m. during the week, along with its bon-vivantry and the light of 13 flat screens infiltrating every dim booth. The ambiance is that of a well-worn, college haunt: Big Buck Hunter in the front, a pair of pool tables in the back, and a flirtatious bustle of fresh-faced alumni and young regulars in between. While weeknights cater mostly to a light rotation of after-workers, weekend crowds can triple in size and intensity. Beer towers and waitresses in bosom-baring tank tops (temperature permitting) spike the boozy vibe.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
