This week, Ravi DeRossi opens a hidden beer bar, Proletariat, behind East Village boozy-pastry shop Jane’s Sweet Buns. A pink-painted door in back leads to a dim ten-seat space decked out like an old-school tattoo parlor. You’ll find 12 beers on tap, 30 in bottles, and even a couple of beer cocktails on draft. Scope out the shadowy space straight ahead.
