A cabaret license distinguishes this otherwise unremarkable night spot. The long varnished bars, chintzy high-backed stools, rickety tables, and plasma TVs suggest interior design by Pubs-R-Us as do the tin ceilings and exposed brick walls. Thankfully, the dance floor at this two-room hangout is big by Manhattan standards—about the size of an East Village bar. As a result, Saloon attracts a serious dance crowd. Saloon's 20-something crowd comes here to drink Bud, scan the meat market, and grind to top-40 hits and tribute bands.Dress Code

Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
