The Subway

Metropolitan & Union (right at the top of subway stairs)
(718) 218-7856

Stepped into this place to watch the massive & unexplained crowd of people across the street ... someone said maybe the L train broke down and they were waiting for a shuttle, but I never saw it. Other suggestions welcome.

Decor: 4/5 ... lots of cool subway signs & paraphernalia all over walls ... not a very divey effect, more like TGI Friday's, but still pretty cool. nice back room with pool table.

Drinks: 3/5 ... only had one beer, $5, nothing wrong with it

Crowd: 4/5 ... mixed and friendly

Dive factor: 3/5 ... points for being at the top of the subway stairs, but not very divey otherwise ... seems like despite its name we have yet to uncover many actual dives on this blog

Overall: 4/5 ... a solid bar. nice concept, not overdone, relaxed & friendly atmosphere.
