Almost three decades old, this dark DJ bar is so beloved its landlords called off the decision to close it a few winters back due to overwhelming outcry from regulars. Laid out in an old railroad apartment, the floors creak under nightly dance parties, and the candlelit bar serves a small but decent selection of basic drinks and beers.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Stick with a highball. This is dive-bar territory.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Depending on who’s spinning, Danny’s can get really, really crowded—and really, really fun.
