Thirsty Scholar

155 2nd Ave.
New York, NY 10003
212-777-6514
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.
