With its unmarked and non-descript exterior, 2A might be easily overlooked upon passing by. The neighborhood dive bar offers a cozy and intimate atmosphere with a distinctive Alphabet City charm. What sets 2A apart from other local bars, however, is its second floor, which unexpectedly turns into an eclectic lounge with sofa and ottoman-style seating, unique floor-to-ceiling window paneling providing a great view, and a film projector which plays classic black and white films on a brick wall across the street. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, and the occasional DJ upstairs make this my favorite bar in the city.

Some friends and I randomly ended up at this bar, and thought it was great! There's an upstairs, where we hung out, and two of the walls are windows so you can see out onto the street and it feels really open, and there are plenty of places to sit and put drinks down. There was a decent crowd, but not so much that it felt crowded. Good background music so you can talk to people and just chill. Drinks were well-made too. It's a great place for a more chill night.

bartenders are NOTORIOUS for being rude. the bar is alright, but the people who work there are horrible. horrible. not recommended. and it's extremely crowded and hard to get service. i've been there many times and it's always the same scene. don't go.

I go to 2A regularly and i love it. the bartenders are great, the people are interesting and low key. i recommend it if you are down with the east village scene...that doesnt include upper east siders looking to party in the village. this bar is true to its roots and its staying that way.
