Village Voice's Description
Dives don't get more simple than 2A. Happy Hour has a two-for-one special. There are two floors--the bottom a cozy dive, the top a lounge with pleasant floor-to-ceiling windows. And it's located on the corner of 2nd Street and A. The only thing that doesn't revolve around the #2 is the cohesive crowd of subdued Alphabet City bohemians who look like they're attending a neighbor's dinner party. No "too much shit on the walls" decor, rousing bar games, or loud people to churn the stomach here--just a good spot to let a gin & tonic settle.
Tips from foursquare
Sit upstairs in the corner and look out over 2nd St & Ave A. One of the best seats in NYC to have a drink. Hint: don't try this one weekend.
2 for one during happy hour!
The upstairs lounge is usually empty and staffed by by favorite bartender in the city.
Not sure it's deserves to be called a Dive Bar. If you get your hand stamp at Mercury Lounge beers are only $3. PS go up stairs already!
Awesome people-watching with a prime corner spot and big windows. 2-for-1 happy hour every day!
