Heathers, like many other cool guy bars, has no sign on the door outside. But that's where the pretension stays. Inside is a full bar (including real absinthe!) and a laid-back bartender who'll serve you strong and cheap drinks like a good dive should. It's dark and divey without being too dirty (bathrooms that shine like the top of the Chrysler Building) and there's always good background music to talk over.
