I live a block from this place, and it's a god send. The next closest place to buy cigarettes after midnight is practically on the East River. Beer is pricey but again, at least they're selling it. The sandwiches are pretty good, although pretty basic. Also good for takeout or delivery - if you want 1 AM tiramisu, you can actually get it from this place. There's something to be said for that. But yes, it's a little intimidating - like, next door to a strip club and a s*x shop intimidating. If you want something nice go next door, if they're open (they probably aren't if you're not ditching work - unless you're a banker or stock broker, in which case, you're probably in it for the strip club anyway). But since they're probably not open, go here.
Pros: Open after working hours; Sells Cigarettes; Decent food
Cons: Can be kinda skeevy; No Yuengling; Bottles are overpriced
