      LOVE this place!
      168 York Street is a hidden gem! The regular crowd is fantastic! 2nd and 4th Saturdays are the Robin Banks Show - amazing Drag, Burlesque and DJ! A hell of a show for only $5!

      Popular with locals. Some Yalies and tourists,too.
      Usually described as New Haven's version of "Cheers," at 168 you'll find locals, some of whom seem to have been on the same bar stool since the Regan administration. There's usually a sprinkling of Yalies and visitors as well. Sunday brunch and the Thursday night beer bash are good times to drop by.
