Going by the moniker iMok, none other than the bev director behind Montauk's Surf Lodge is part of the team behind this welcomingly dive-y neighborhood cocktail lounge dedicated to mother-worrying debauchery, a dimly lit tunnel with an enormous, ever-evolving graffiti wall at one end, a puree-, syrup- & juice-laden bar at the other, and, lining the area in between, spray-can art, banquettes, and flickering candles bearing images of Jesus, so you should feel comfortable getting totally lit up.
