Village Voice's Description
Across the street from the Lower East Side's prized indie-rock venues--the Cake Shop, Pianos, and the Living Room--sits the Draft, a real outlier on the block. Few tight-jeaned, flamboyantly plumed natives enter, and those that do are here for the same reason as the other patrons: to watch sports on one of several jumbo TVs. Though beer-pong games are regularly in session, the Draft doesn't generally fit the sports-dive formula: Rather than a can of Bud, $2 PBR is the drink of choice, though upstanding craft beer pilsners are also available. Likewise, the walls are covered in a crimson Victorian print instead of framed football-player stills. This is the closest you'll get to a sports bar on the L.E.S.
Tips from foursquare
Nice place to hang!!
Check out the wicked murals in the 'dugout' and 'skybox' lounges... Great for private parties~ artsy AND sporty ! :)
Three words: bacon cheese fries.
Possibly the best happy hour in all of Manhattan. From 6-10 pm on weekdays, $3 drafts, $4 wells and $4 house wines. (Psst, they have Magic Hat #9)
Expect lots of game-watching and lots of beer guzzling at this sports bar.
