Plug Uglies is a Gramercy area sports bar and dive. Purportedly named after an infamous Irish gang that ruled the streets of NYC in the 1800s, this cavernous space is well-liked by NYC locals (and cops) for its no-nonsense, no BS approach to boozing. Drinks are cheap, pours are generous, and the vibe is wholly unpretentious. Shuffleboard, pool, and trivia, are what's on the menu besides standard-issue draft brews (Guinness, Bud, Miller, et al).
