Williamsburg's Midway Bar on Grand St delivers to drinkers something between a total dive and an arcade, serving refreshingly cheap drinks (happy hour beers are next to free) in a neighborhood known increasingly for its Manhattan-style prices. Colorful lights line the main bar area, with swizzle bar stools (don't try ordering any fancy sips at them, you won't be obliged) and five video game consoles to play. Upstairs lives a ruby-colored billiards table in a lounge space with red leather banquettes. A jukebox completes the neighborhood dive picture.
