One of Kens­ing­ton’s rad­dest wa­ter­ing holes, Thirsty & Mis­er­able gets my vote for best­named bar. A chill haunt to slake your thirst and slay your wor­ries, this tiny spot (long ago punk rock haven Planet Kens­ing­ton) has an even tinier front pa­tio. Ar­rive early and kick your Cons up to ob­serve the never-end­ing spec­ta­cle of daily life along the Mar­ket’s jugu­lar. Owner Katie Whit­taker has ex­cel­lent and eclec­tic taste. Her bar is stocked with lo­cal one-off good­ness (GLB’s Thrust! IPA spot­ted re­cently along with a lim­ited sup­ply of Dieu du Ciel’s bour­bon-bar­rel-aged Péché Mor­tel) and a fridge of in­trigu­ing im­ports. Years in op­er­a­tion Two and a half Spe­cialty Ex­cel­lent beers in a chill, di­vey en­vi­ron­ment. (High­est praise – dive bars are the best.) Food Snacks to cover le­gal re­quire­ments, but guest are en­cour­aged to BYOF from sur­round­ing (de­li­cious) Kens­ing­ton ven­dors. Pa­tio Seats 9 (not bad con­sid­er­ing the pub it­self only seats 28) Hours Tues­day to Thurs­day 5:30 pm to 2 am, Fri­day to Sun­day 2 pm to 2 am. Closed Mon­day.
