Long before bars were advertising recession-friendly two-for-ones, this Upper East Side neighborhood dive was offering drinks on the cheap. Open since 1942, neighbors of a few different generations gather at the long wooden bar to pound beers and watch the game. Allegiance goes to the Yankees, and judging by the die-hard clientele, it seems wise not to be vocal in rooting for the competition (outspoken Red Sox fans, be warned). Black-and-white photos of the bar from the 1940s, knickknacks, wood paneling, and tin ceilings lend a throwback vibe; an iTunes jukebox is among the few modern touches. The sports theme is extended to the back room, which is decorated with memorabilia and boasts a pool table, shuffleboard, and a Golden Tee. And while athletic prowess isn’t required on the back patio, a midsize deck touting plastic patio tables and umbrellas, there is a bring-your-own-meat policy for the barbecue and, therefore, always a chance for a competitive cook-off.
