You would never guess it, but they have food and alcohol here. The alcohol is more-or-less standard, but for food you can get calamari, cheese curds covered in gravy, or savory mozzarella French toast. Or you can just have a burger. Ethyl’s is a 70’s-themed bar, they do things like bingo and burlesque, and the whole place feels more LES than UES. If you need a late-night snack beneath a disco ball, this is the place.
