82 Stanton St. (NE corner of Allen)
New York, NY 10002
(212) 477-2232

Bathroom situation– two in the back, men’s to the left, women’s to the right. The men’s features a urinal and a stall with swinging Old West saloon doors like they have in Back to the Future Part III. Visceralist has heard that the women’s is single-person, but feel free to correct that in the comments if need be.

Takes credit cards? – no, and Visceralist is starting to get sick of this BS (we’re looking at you too, Pink Pony). Third-party ATM fees are straight bozack.

Cost of Stella – again, they only take cash here, so who knows if they have a set price for Stella? The IRS certainly doesn’t. Most likely though, it’s $6.

Food? How late – yes, basic bar food menu, but the place is so small that one wonders where the hell they actually cook all this shit up. One assumes the kitchen that’s actually perfectly visible from anywhere in the bar.

Age of clientele – as Epstein’s is close to the border of the LES, you’ll find a good mix of problematic young people today that don’t know they’re not welcome and the 30 year olds who’ll make sure they figure that out asap.
