New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
In name alone, the Thirsty Scholar is a good reminder that some of our greatest writers--James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway come to mind--loved alcohol. Aside from the mounds of sawdust covering the floor, the Thirsty Scholar promotes its erudite sensibility by decorating the bronze walls with antique photos of distinguished and furry-faced men: Mark Twain, say. Plus, on a ledge just above the entrance is a Madame Tussauds-styled recreation of Albert Einstein chilling out, just another pint or three from cracking the theory of relativity. At the bar down below, the liquor is poured with a generous hand and happy hour lasts until 8 p.m.--enough time to knock back a few yourself, for inspiration's sake, of course.
Tips from foursquare
Knock back $4 well drinks from 5 to 8pm Monday through Wednesday (and 2 to 8pm Thursday through Sunday).
Need a bargain to get your buzz on? Come in between 2pm-8pm, any day of the week for happy hour prices: <$4 beers, $4 cosmos & $5 martinis.
Go to the Thirsty Scholar and order a Gin and Tonic. Make friends with the bartenders.
The bartender, Pete is the best bartender in New York City.
I go to world class clubs in miami, nyc and LA! I stepped in this place cause I was desperate. Never in my life has anyone been so rude for no apparent reason. Bar tender is trailer park trash queer
