Angels & Kings

Angels & Kings

Instead of falling into the "since I'm now famous, I'm going to open some kitchy mega-club or hipper-than-thou ultra lounge" celebrity trap, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy went the route of cool neighborhood dive, and this is why we like him. Angels & Kings looks much nicer than your standard dive bar, with red curtains, leather couches and scattered votive candles, but it's got that unassuming basement dive feel (with just a dash of sleaze) that welcomes just about every random soul to wander through the East Village. The jukebox has some good rock tunes on it, and the crowd is mostly cool save for the occasional camera-toting college-girl tourist waiting on an appearance from Mr. Wentz himself.
