Ludlow Street's subterranean lounge has been pulling in loyal rum-and-cokers since the neighborhood exploded five years ago. With fairly priced drinks, ample cushiony-couch seating, an accessible (but sometimes fiercely competitive) pool table in the back and some of the funkiest music downtown, Ludlow's every nook and cranny tends to fill up with bodies. Regulars take their positions at the bar as soon as it's open, leaving for home only to escape flocks of night-frenzied fete-followers. The bathroom doors do not lock, but security keeps all the kids in line, single file, so don't worry. And don't bother using the payphone in the back; it never works.
