Neighborhood: East Village
Address: 85 Avenue A

If you can get over the smell of the one mop used to clean all bars below 10th street, then Arrow Bar is more than happy to take care of your hip-hop needs. The bathrooms look like they've seen a couple of ODs and the temperature sky rockets when there are more than 45 people present. But Saturday nights listening to DJs who are willing to play Young Jeezy in his white-T-era and the remix of "Been Around the World" (twice!) means you should plug up your nose, wear those AF1s you tried to clean with bleach, and enjoy.
