Those not paying attention risk stumbling past the subtle neon signage and buzzer-protected door of this Ukrainian Village dive. To feel like a regular inside, simply nab a Miller Lite, lend an ear at the bar stools and shamelessly belt Van Halen’s “Top of the World” between dart tosses. A tip to the wanna-be sharks: Pool is taken very seriously.
