Do or Dive is a little bar in Bed-Stuy that wants you to think it’s older than it is. There's an old jukebox, a few vintage lamps, some red vinyl stools, and a big plastic shark hanging behind the bar. It looks like the sort place where get a drink after losing a lot of money betting on horses. They even have a video poker machine. And young people seem to like this bar. They like the cheap drinks, the frozen coffee slushie, and the fact that this place makes them nostalgic for a time before smartphones. Although plenty of smartphones will be out.
