  • Best jukebox. Nicest bar staff. Medicinal picklebacks. Great bar.
  • Good bar. Better when NYU isn't in session.
  • Come for the music, leave for the music, go insane for the company.
  • Dr Lloyd's trivia in the back room. 2nd and 4th Wednesdays
  • The best juke box I have ever seen....
  • Star Trek pinball hidden in the back, but (as of Jan 2014) looks like they're in the middle of a renovation so the back is kind of a wasteland.
  • Photo booth, kickass juke box, $3 happy hour on Sunday Funday... Vegetarian chili is decent too. Do it.
  • Go to Hi Fi and demand to use their fax machine. Say it's really important government business.
  • Put 10 USD in NYCs best Jukebox. Rock out during 241 happy hour 5-8.
  • Before HiFi bar, there was Brownies. A hot spot during the "new rock revival" of the early 2000s, The Strokes, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Liars all played gigs before the venues close in 2002.
  • Beers, photo booth, pool table. What more could you want??! It's the quintessential dive bar I just can't quit!
  • the colors on the sign outside make it look like it's gonna be super douchey inside, but it's actually really cool. i love big ass christmas lights!
  • don't wiz on the electric fence.
  • All-time jukebox
  • Great Jukebox, great cider.
  • Great classic and custom cocktails - espec. the sazerac!
  • First time I've seen a Dj with vinyl! Pricy bar but the musics pretty good
  • East village bathrooms are the worst
  • Michelada!!!!
  • A PBR and a shot for 6 bucks? Yeah, I'm into it.
