Best non-gentrified L.E.S. bar New York 2004 - THREE OF CUPS
Well, all I really know is that THREE OF CUPS is a fine hole in which to drunkenly pass a night. Pluses: It's underground and stuffed with comfy seating. Minuses: Getting the rocker chick bartender's attention can be tough, unless you're going into the spacious one-person facilities with a friend. Of course, the bar's best feature is how it encourages such behavior.
