Village Voice's Description

Located beneath an apartment complex on one of the quietest, most residential blocks off Cooper Square, you could easily miss Scratcher's unmarked entrance. Of course, that's why this dive is most frequented by observant, non-student locals. They come for the solid $6 Bud 'n' bourbon deal, and they know that a healthy serving of olives awaits, if you'll only ask for it. The interior, like its neighborly charm, is simple and inconspicuous: bare brick walls, wooden pub fixtures, Christmas lights.

Tips from foursquare

  • This is Foursquare co-founder Dennis Crowley's favorite bar, which he told us in a video tour of the East Village.

  • Dens on 06/09/11

    Official after-work bar of team foursquare. If both bathrooms do not have foursquare stickers on the doors/mirrors/toilets, someone's getting fired... #justsaying

  • Mike S. on 07/13/11

    foursquare hometown favorite, the staff may-or-may-not hate us, but they certainly can't ignore us

  • naveen on 07/05/10

    The wifi password is the bar's phone number (look for it written on a piece of paper behind the bar)

  • Village Voice on 03/03/11

    A favorite of Voice staffers-They have a great happy hour ($2 off drafts/well drinks) that you can find using our Happy Hours app! http://www.gotime.com/nyc/mobile
