Village Voice's Description
Buy a drink at the Crocodile Lounge, and you receive a ticket for a free cheese pizza, fresh out of the bar’s brick-oven. The gimmick was popularized at the Alligator Lounge in Williamsburg, and it works just as well at this Manhattan iteration. Free pizza is a great unifier, and the basement bar attracts crowds from Gramercy and the East Village as well as plenty of NYU kids. The tap features a range of craft and seasonal beers, plus Yuengling on the cheap. The concept makes for a great value but an even more valuable happy hour, which means there is a lunch crowd and an after-work crowd. Nevertheless, the Crocodile Lounge and its divey, croc-in-the-Nile decor rarely feels un-relaxed. It’s a utilitarian bar to begin, end, or continue a night, but the Crocodile Lounge offers plenty of encouragement to just hang out. There is skee-ball, a jungle-green back patio for fair weather, and on Wednesday nights, the bar plays host to a popular “Trivial Dispute” trivia night. --Alex Spoto
