This comfy, cavelike hangout sits just south of the elevated subway station at 125th Street. Supersweet tipples are their stock-in-trade: Choose among fresh watermelon martinis or "shotz" like the Bomb Diggity Bomb made with blue curaçao, Myers's Rum and pineapple juice. Twenty-four drafts--$3 during the daily 5--7pm happy hour--are also available. Friday and Saturday nights, DJs spin '80s and reggae tunes, drawing students from nearby Columbia and Barnard to the crushed-velvet couches.
