Metromix says:

For some time now, mixologists and their cocktailing disciples have bemoaned the exclusive, sanctified arenas many serious cocktail bars have become. They long for the casual, convivial “real bar”—a place where you can get a good beer just as easily as you can expect to be served a finely made Manhattan. Where you can loaf at the bar or loiter at a table, without being asked if you’ve made a reservation or if everyone in your party has arrived. The Drink is such a bar: a home away from home for locals and peripatetic punch buffs alike, as well as any sailor worth his salt passing through.
