209 E. 5th St. New York, NY 10003 | East Village | 212-477-0030

Location Description:

Located beneath an apartment complex on one of the quietest, most residential blocks off Cooper Square, you could easily miss Scratcher's unmarked entrance. Of course, that's why this dive is most frequented by observant, non-student locals. They come for the solid $6 Bud 'n' bourbon deal, and they know that a healthy serving of olives awaits, if you'll only ask for it. The interior, like its neighborly charm, is simple and inconspicuous: bare brick walls, wooden pub fixtures, Christmas lights.
