First-timers to this bar spend most of the evening in a state of shock watching mute aliens in rubber-and-spandex costumes walking around the place.

Jeremy’s Ale House
254 Front St., between Peck Slip and Dover St., 212-964-3537
If you enjoy people-watching just as much as downing glasses of your favorite alcohol, Jeremy’s Ale House is the place for you. This is one place where fishmongers, construction workers and Wall Street executives stand shoulder to shoulder reaching for their 32-ounce Styrofoam cups of Bud which is priced at $1.75. Happy hours start at 8 a.m.
The Village Idiot
355 West 14th St., at Ninth Ave., 212-989-7334
This place had girls dancing on the bar long before Coyote Ugly became popular. You might just walk in to find the owner arm-wrestling highly drunk customers for drinks and there are never any complaints, probably because half of them never remembered it happened. Beers are $1.25-$3, beer pitchers are $5.50, mixed drinks are $3.25, and shots are $3. Good luck for the match!
