Once upon a time there were only two—yes, two—bars on all of Avenue B: 7B and Mona's. The avenue has changed a lot, but Mona's hasn't: It's still full of punks, Irishmen and college dropouts. And it still features the same lack of décor—an ancient bar and a few faded posters in the front room and a back room that looks like a bunker with a Big Buck Hunter game. And don't order a cosmopolitan at this no-frills drinking establishment. Oh, they probably make 'em, but do you really want to be on the receiving end of that many dirty looks?


Music at Mona's generally means the punk-rock jukebox, but on Tuesdays there's live jazz. Amuse yourself by observing the more hung-over patrons' faces when the band starts up.
