The Sayers Club
15 Best Bars: No. 6, July 2012
A lot of hype surrounded the SBE bar’s secret entrance through hot dog favorite Papaya King. Now there’s no mistaking the way in: Just look for the bouncer and the lady with a list. Inside you’ll find an old warehouse-like room with brick walls, red leather couches, and a twentysomething crowd. Live music starts at midnight; till then a DJ spins bands like LCD Soundsystem. The no-gimmick drinks are $18 a pop. Good tip: Avoid the lines by going on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and before 10 p.m. on weekends.
