The phone's been disconnected, and from the street outside it looks closed. But Station Cafe is open, though not necessarily "alive" in the classic sense of the word. The bar is in a coma. Everything has slowed down inside this dive. The liveliest scene you'll encounter here are the screenshots from The Honeymooners that plaster the walls. And those are stills. Everyone's drink has been set in stone since they first started coming here, decades ago. Take heed of the "No Dancing" sign. That won't fly. Order your beer and settle in. Give your resting heart beat the opportunity to hit the bar's level. Just don't, you know, succumb.
