This is a dive on Spring Street that opens at 8am six days a week, and it’s been around for decades. At this point, it’s a classic, and you should have a drink there. The inside is pretty old-school (with wood floors and tiny wooden stools to crouch down on), and it’s all pretty charming. Maybe it’ll smell bad, but hey - it’s a dive. They’re supposed to smell bad.
