Manhattan, NY 10009
The walls have been cleared of graffiti, but the second coming of this legendary saloon stays true to its dive bar roots (the original shuttered in 2005 after more than 40years of business). A scuffed bar and vintage film posters make up the decor, and the jukebox is still killer (BlackFlag, Nina Simone). Liquor tops out at $8, taps like Stella and Yuengling are $5 or less, and two-buck cans of Schaefer can be paired with whiskey shots ($4 for both).
