Despite sights and smells that call to mind a frat house basement, all eyes are smiling at this Gramercy dive, if only because of the booze. The action starts when older Stuy-town barflies flock here to get their afternoon fix and gawk at the pretty bartenders; next up is the suit-and-tie set taking advantage of the cheap happy hour pints and playing pool or darts—the sole diversions. Come nightfall, SVA and NYU students descend upon the Spartan space, perhaps because of the happy hour's late-night return. You'll see Red Headed Sluts and Surfers on Acid consumed like they're requirements for class.
