The Free Street Bar is a smoky, dimly lit basement which provides an intimate, relaxing atmosphere for the conversationalist. The entrance is easily missable, consisting solely of a narrow, dimly-lit flight of stairs decorated with American beer promotional posters. It has the pretensions of being a gallery, and several works of art can be found on the walls. The bar is small but the drinks are affordable (20 yuan Coronas). There is a pole dancer whose unbelievable feats on said pole are worth seeing.

Primarily a bar, it has a lots of booths and a ring of comfortable couches near the door, and the sound system is pretty decent. It has a small stage with a smattering of cafe tables and chairs in front of it. A small and unsanitary bathroom can be found past the stage to the left, the ceiling in which is so low to the point that it doesn't adequately serve long legged or flabby people.

Don't let that discourage you for one moment. New Yorkers often relish the rough edges of their nightspots— for many, it is the veritable seal of credibility. Grittiness, perhaps, is the purest expression of the spirit of our scene— it connotates everything taboo, outcast, and mysterious. Free Street is, to be wordy, a cathonic experience; a roughly hewn underworld populated by strange beings, haunting sounds, and wild ideas.
