A lot of folks will tell you that this bar used to be a fallout shelter, but the truth is it was actually built as a bar back in 1961. The round, windowless structure is packed to the rafters with 60s era kitsch, from JFK memorabilia to black velvet paintings and groovy lamps. The retro vibe is augmented with a continual showing of 60s B movies and plenty of period music, occasionally provided by DJ fond of deep cuts and rare grooves. Bartenders mix up all the retro cocktails you can handle, but don’t fret if your personal favorite is something invented last year–they can make those too. And if you’re in the market for some new bad jokes to share with your friends, a visit to the restrooms here should be high on your list of things to do.
