Concierge.com's insider take:
Pete Wentz is a far cry from Joey Ramone, but if you're looking for a rocker bar in the East Village, Wentz's Angels and Kings is about as close as you'll get these days. The Fall Out Boy bassist co-owns the loungy spot, nicknamed "AK-47," with Travis McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes and clothing designer Jamison Ernest. The boys go heavy on the red velvet and have cheekily lined the bar with famous celebrity mug shots. As rock bars go, there's a solid drink selection, but the real attraction tends to be the celebrity sightings, including Pete and wifey Ashlee Simpson. Their crew is known to drop in for the bar's regular Monday-night karaoke parties, but most nights are great for kicking back to good music while sampling the bar's famous drink specials (their happy hour features $2 vodka drinks from 8 to 10 pm).
Open Mondays through Thursdays 7 pm to 4 am, Fridays and Saturdays 6 pm to 4 am, Sundays 8 pm to 4 am.
