Village Voice's Description

"For a Classy Expensive Intoxication," reads the sign in front of Welcome to the Johnsons'. By "classy," they mean 1970s wood-paneling decor and a surprisingly well-groomed pool table. By "expensive," they mean $2 PBRs. As ironic as this faux-rec room setting sounds, there's something romantic about an eternal house party where the parents are never home. And even though the Johnson family is fictional, the bar's artifacts--tattered trophies, a wooden chair with floral-print vinyl cushions, a portrait of an anonymous, mustachioed man--surely belonged to someone's family three decades ago. Pabst was in its prime back then and here, it still is.

    Don’t worry about trying to squeeze a dollar bill into the jukebox, it’s actually free. Last time I was there, I enjoyed a block of Public Enemy, Helmet and the Cars. - Jim Shearer, Top 20 Countdown

    Sip your way into a PBR buzz at this sceney dive, where cans are just $1.75 from 3 to 9pm on weekdays and 1 to 9pm on the weekends.

    Show up with $20 and don't leave until you've drank it all away.

  • The Corcoran Group on 08/17/10

    Dark and dirty dive bar that is surprisingly homey. Cheap beer ($2 PBR), awesome plastic covered sofas. Bring hand sanitizer.
