Nurse Bettie

Every sceney spot needs a spillover bar nearby -- a subdued place where you can booze 'til you're ready to face the prospect of wedging yourself into a jockeying throng. So if you're hitting the still-ludicrously-packed Back Room, meet up at this just-opened, tiny, pinup girl-themed bar first. It's literally next door, has comfortable (and weirdly butt-gripping) banquettes, and serves up cocktails stiff enough to make you forget that the beautiful women on the posters are by now involuntarily spilling over the seams of their Depends.
