Ah, Nancy Whiskey Pub, the acclaimed dive bar where the Bud flows for $2.50 a pint and is served with an extra hit of sass. Ben Westhoff selected this quintessential watering hole for our "New York's Best Dive Bars" feature: "At the best dive bars, misery and dread are balanced by elation and poorly reasoned optimism," he writes. This is borne out by the chatty, tight-knit collective of regulars continually mustering up the stamina for another round of shuffleboard (which dominates a sizable portion of the room), and by the bartender who occasionally whips out a tambourine and smacks it to the White Stripes' "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground." This calamity will rouse you from whatever reverie you may be having at the time, and you'll be grateful.
