First things first: The name comes from the large, orange valve that hangs low over the bar. Why is it orange? Because the owners painted it orange. But why orange? Stop asking so many questions, and have a drink. And namely, a bottle of Heineken or a cocktail no fancier than a gin-and-tonic, mixed by a barman so goofily friendly you’ll want to hang out there all night, either at the bar itself, over which looms a big-screen TV playing the Knicks game or The Real World, or in the comfy pillowed booths in the back. If you get hungry, there’s a menu of Asian treats, and if—when—you get boisterous, head for the big basement karaoke room.
