Southern ex-pats and Brooklyn barflies mix company at this flame-decorated bar. Stocked with value beers and valuable whiskey, Lady Jay's stools are rarely empty, and the few booths are just as alluring to those looking to throw back some drinks with minimal fuss. The jukebox's mean selection of rockabilly and country steals many a dollar from the tattooed, rolled-up-denim crowd, who flock to the $5 beer-and-whiskey-shot special, while neighborhood types find solace in the laid-back environment and cheap happy hour specials. Certain nights bring in live jazz bands to perform on the small stage out back, where a sizable wooden deck supports enough tables to accommodate chain-smoking groups of drinkers, and then some.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
