The East Village is full of secrets. And one worth celebrating is The Body Shop—the speakeasy located at 242 E 10th St.

An inked and leather-clad crowd had the place buzzing. All good vibes here. With neon-lit drums that serve as tables, the hidden gem is at the back of Pinks. It comfortably seats fourteen people on burgundy leather benches.

Lighting that sets the mood right, the badass smoke machine and retro pin-up photos are what make The Body Shop a must see. Stop by and enjoy direct access to the bartenders via the black phone near the entrance.

Brewtiful news! Do or Dive is shaking up the urbane barscape in Brooklyn. For those of you who are unfamiliar: meet the not-so-dive bar of your dreams—where the booze is plentiful and cheap, the dog-friendly atmosphere warms the soul and the gaming options are strong.

At Do or Dive, you can quench the belly of the beast with a beer selection that caps at $7. Yes, you can still enjoy a Pabst, but the low-budge high-reward applies to all beers on tap. For the spirited folk that prefer harder liquor, mixed drinks and cocktails are just as inexpensive.
