Old but charming, this sturdy workhorse of a dive-bar is well-known to long-time residents of Harlem. Outside, the brown picket fence and blue awning enclose an outdoor seating area, while inside you're greeted by a comfortable atmosphere of wood-paneled walls, a wood-grain bar-top, a dartboard, and a meaty selection of soul tunes on the jukebox. The old swivel stools at the bar counter would feel like cast-offs from the set of Across 110th Street if it weren't for the fact that a bar like this probably made a movie like that even possible. All in all, it’s a great place to sip a Scotch and soak up the neighborly atmosphere.
