In Focus: Pony
- Vibe: gay dive bar that pays homage to West Village and Castro joints from the 1970s
- The Stranger's verdict: “Pony is more fun per inch than anywhere in town, if not the world.”
- The building: Originally a gas station built in the 1930s, the place now boasts a west-facing patio whose retractable roof and gas fire pit keep it open all year.
- Happy hour: every day until 8 p.m. and all-night Wednesday. Highlights include $5 pitchers, $3.50 microbrew drafts, and $3 tall well drinks.
- Entertainment: a weekly lineup of DJs spinning punk, disco, and new wave, plus karaoke every Tuesday
- Closing time: 2 a.m. every night
