Grand Central Bar

Grand St. bet. Manhattan + Leonard
(718) 387-5515

Not much to say about this one. Seems like it wasn't meant to be a dive, but it's becoming one because it's not really drawing a lot of visitors.

Decor: 3.5/5 ... interesting (read: creepy) art on walls, pool table, small raised stage for a band (no band) ... back room with couches seemed nice. TVs over the bar, tuned to sitcoms.

Crowd: 3/5 ... just one group of people discussing where else to go, plus a couple of older guys at the bar

Drinks: 2/5 ... standard selection of beers, standard pricing ... someone ordered jim beam or something else pretty common and they didn't have it, so that's a one point deduction.

Dive factor: 3.5/5

Overall: i actually liked this place. i think it would be great with a few more people. not sure when it would be busy though, if not on a friday night. let's say a good place to go with a group that can take over a section of it.
