Alphabet City has plenty of bars where button-downed traders go to slum, but Morrisey Park is the opposite—the lounge seems to be the one that's roughing it by letting the unwashed hordes through its frosted door. Inside, shiny pin-striped wallpaper, a 3D-looking forest mural, and a tasteful deer skull make the narrow-as-a-subway car space feel almost like the Ralph Lauren store. The tiny bar serves cheap PBRs to greasers in Army-Navy duds and fruit and tea-infused concoctions like the SeeSaw (a fizzy pomegranate drink) to the impeccably put-together girls who during the wee hours might just end up snogging the aforementioned gentlemen on the low leather banquettes lining the wall. Like the former tenant Openair, Morrisey Park draws its crowd via a sure sound system and nightly DJs—although new owner Jan Lo (who cracked his first beer in a park named Morrisey in Illinois, hence the name) has replaced electronica with electro and rock. The spacious backroom is popular for private parties and art openings.


In 2004-2005, the tiny bar logged the second-most number of noise complaints in the city, probably because at any given time, half of the patrons are hanging out on the sidewalk getting air or taking in smoke. Monday's "2 of Hearts" party, fueled by two-for-one drinks and $1 Bud pints from 8pm-11pm, inevitably ends with "Oh my God, I have to go to work / class in a few hours."
