Ioana & the Soulshine band debut at The local 269 – Check out this story about them:
The Lower East Side's lush life expands with this local-friendly neighborhood watering hole offering killer drink deals. – Lest you think the Lower East Side is marching toward luxurification, travel to this good-and-gritty dive trafficking in no-nonsense cocktails and brews sold for a song. Trendsters and bridge-and-tunnelers shy from this black-lacquered corner bunker (named after its address) styled with exposed brick, hodgepodge chandeliers and rickety tables, giving run of the box-like room to rockers and chill locals looking to tie one on for cheap. To spice up the scene, guitar-strumming musicians occasionally take to the stage to provide entertainment.
Hits: If you're short on cash, you'll still get trashed. The two-for-one drink deal, combined with the unpretentious vibe, will appease even the brokest boozer.
Misses: Once happy hour ends, you'll be hard-pressed to recommend this spot to your friends. It's indistinguishable from dozens of other downtown dives.
