This summer BroBible teaming up with longtime reader Drehow from the photo blog Hitting the Head to feature some interesting off-the-beaten path watering holes to get your drink on in our home city of New York. This week's "dive of the week" is Local 138 at 138 Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side.
There isn't much I need to say about this place, its sells itself. Local 138 is probably OUR favorite dive bar in the city. Why? Because I can go there Sunday thru Saturday and for $20, I can leave drunk. Not buzzed: DRUNK. That's not ease in New York. Local 138 has one of the best Happy Hours in the LES area: everything on tap is $3 from 4pm-9pm, including includes: Stella, Victory, a few IPAs, and some stouts. The bartenders are THE SH*T and the atmosphere is always laid back (Except Friday, when tne Hip-Hopsters come out to play). It's almost as if Local 138 is the perfect pre-game spot. Swing by, have a shot of Jamie or a pint of Stella and tell them HittingTheHead sent ya...we have carte blanche!
