Our new project for Mighty Quinn's, on the corner of 2nd Ave. and 6th Street New York City, has begun construction and is moving along quickly. This front window will soon be a glass overhead door:

This place is called The Bar, or The Tile Bar, but I know it as WCOU. It is a classic, simple bar in the East Village of New York, and I have been frequenting it since... well the early 1980's. Neon clock, rock juke box, black & white checkered tile floor, original 80's teal tile in toilets, and 'Stranger Than Paradise' framed movie poster. Oh, beer nuts in bowls and Brooklyn Lager on tap!
