Huckleberry Bar

Huckleberry Bar

Joining joints like Jimmy's #43 and Cantina, Huckleberry is one of those bars that offer amazing food made in equipment-challenged micro-kitchens.


The Forum, one of the few lounges in Union Square territory, brings peace during the weekdays and boisterous partying on the weekends. Saturdays, for example, require plus-sized bouncers to monitor the swarms of cocktail-craving, dancing citizens.
Company Bar

Company Bar

If the hockey jerseys lining the walls at Company Bar don't draw you in, the great food and unpretentious atmosphere surely will. Stop by any night of the week for a refreshing round of hot wings and cold drinks.

  • Niagara


    112 Ave. A New York, NY 10009
    212-420-9517 In an area where every bar has some sort of sweet gimmick, Niagara has, well... alcohol. With graffiti-covered walls, tin ceilings, and blaring rock 'n' roll music, it's definitely a dive (as the Joe Strummer mural outside hints). However, it isn't the stripped-down, $2 PBR kind. Order a gin and tonic, for instance, and the bartender will respond, "What kind of gin? You gotta work with me here." Furthermore, there are high ceilings and (surprise!) overall cleanliness, given that the place's old attractions--a grittier layout and spontaneous dance parties in the basement--were removed after recent renovations. A convention-defying dive for the locals is always welcome. Read more about Niagara >>

  • Nice Guy Eddie

    Nice Guy Eddie's

    5 Ave. A New York, NY 10009
    212-253-1666 A throwback to the time before the East Village was filled with specialty cocktail speakeasies, Nice Guy Eddie's is an unpretentious spot to down a Bud and clean off a plate full of chicken wings. Outside, a mural of KISS, surrounded by lightning bolts and holding a surfboard with the bar's name on it, advertises the place to passersby. Inside, the gray tile floors and glass-topped tables filled with hundreds of old coasters look like they were specifically designed to spill booze onto. The menu is basic pub grub: wings served with blue cheese, burgers, chicken fingers, potato skins stuffed with cheese and bacon, cheesy nachos topped with warm ground beef. Scarf your food down and then play a game of pool or watch the game on one of the large flat-screen TVs. Pitchers of domestic brews are the most popular drinking option, although beers like Stella and Bass are also on tap.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Nice Guy Eddie's >>

  • Nightingale Lounge

    Nightingale Lounge

    213 Second Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-473-9398 The Nightingale Lounge looks intimidating from the outside, its windows and entrance barricaded by dark velvet drapery. But once you make it in, the lounge presents itself as an extension of your wealthy friend's tricked-out basement. In the back, there's a pool table; in the center, a popcorn machine. Plush couches line the right side of the room, while the left hosts a metallic bar with glowing, pink panels lining the wall. The East Village locale, however, generally seems to prefer quirkier, grittier hang-out spots, so it's up to you and your posse to populate Nightingale's small dance floor. Or coax the bartender to turn on that popcorn machine. Read more about Nightingale Lounge >>

  • The Ninth Ward

    The Ninth Ward

    180 2nd Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-979-9273 With a theme built around 19th-century New Orleans, the Ninth Ward is just as ominous as the name implies. Owned by the same folks behind the equally eerie Shoolbred's across the street, the bar goes for a similar "abandoned but strangely intact parlor room" feel. Look for real, salvaged New Orleans decor, all weathered, wooden, and damp-looking with occasional bursts of beauty, such as an ornate stained-glass panel of a pirouetting dancer. Here, Abita is the beer of choice, while the star cocktail is the rum-based Hurricane, prized Louisiana beverages both out-of-towners and East Village regulars can agree on.

  • No Malice Palace

    No Malice Palace

    197 E. 3rd St. New York, NY 10009
    212-254-9184 The fact that there's no signajust a faded awning that says "Delia's"awould seem to be a good deterrent, but you'd never guess it based on the big crowds that amass at night when hip-hop DJs take to the decks. The drinks are priceyaaround $5 for a bottle of not-very-good beerabut No Malice Palace makes up for it with ambience; it's a comfy and roomy refuge, complete with fireplace, garden, and antique furniture.

  • Nowhere Bar

    Nowhere Bar

    322 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-477-4744 Nowhere is now somewhere. This laid-back pseudo-dive has a pool table, nightly drink specials (two-for-one happy hour), and a diverse (lotsa lesbs too), young clientele. Grab a Newcastle or Stella on draft and mingle. Although six-footers will need to watch out for the low ceiling and air duct, the welcoming atmosphere will more than make up for a bumped head.

  • Nublu

    62 Ave. C New York, NY 10009
    212-473-2311 Despite the lack of a sign and a somewhat out-of-the-way location on Ave. C, Nublu always seems to be packed, even on weeknights. The big draw of this bar in summer is the Japanese-inspired garden and solarium; the latter comes complete with comfy futuristic furniture, like bouncy plastic bubbles for chairs. The techno DJs can be a mixed bag, but good Belgian beer on tap (like strong, heady Leffe) and tasty house drinks made with ingredients like fresh sugarcane juice keep the crowd sufficiently distracted.

  • Olives at the W Hotel Union Square

    Olives at the W Hotel Union Square

    201 Park Ave. S. New York, NY 10003
    212-353-8345 Encompassing the bottom floor of the W, the luxury-hotel brand for spiffy youngsters, Olives serves up fashion-forward, visitor-friendly cocktails. The Notorious F.I.G., comprised of rum, lillet, fig, and rosemary, is indicative of the menu: nothing crazy like bacon-infused bourbon, yet mildly adventurous all the same. The interior, in the spirit of all W hotels, has slick, MOMA-inspired flair, including the room's suspended metallic Xs and its contrasting faux-vine-covered walls. First-time New Yorkers should stop by for a snazzy pre-game experience infused with just a touch of Gossip Girl glam. Read more about Olives at the W Hotel Union Square >>

  • On the C (Duke's Bar)

    129 Ave. C New York, NY 10009

    A guy called Duke owns aOn the Ca and so a lot of people refer to this bar as aDukeasa. It attracts the usual East Village traffic who either return for the $3 happy-hour beer, the garden out back where they can smoke, or because itas just around the corner.

  • One and One

    One and One

    76 E. 1st St. New York, NY 10009
    212-598-9126 It's hard to imagine a better location than the thriving East Village street corner where this Irish pub sits. During weekdays, people coming off of the F train at 2nd Avenue stop by for post-work drinks, while during the weekends partiers do a little casual pre-drinking before heading off for more raucous bars. Pints of Guinness are the most popular drink, although a variety of Irish and U.K. beers are also on tap. The kitchen produces hearty, standard pub fare, from 8 oz. burgers and Cajun chicken sandwiches to chicken pot pie and bangers and mash. During brunch, dishes like French toast and steak and eggs are available with a complimentary brunch cocktail and coffee or tea. The two-story bar itself has a fairly traditional look to it, with a long bar topped with flickering tea lights, velvet curtains and a painting of a group of Guinness-drinkin', hard-workin' Irishmen.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about One and One >>

  • Otto

    Otto's Shrunken Head

    538 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10009
    212-228-2240 Come here to get drunk on cheap beer and hear your friends' awful band. Try and ignore the fact that many people in here look younger than your little brother, and instead concentrate on the five people who look like they graduated college at least three years ago. And in the end, always drink out of their skull-shaped mugs (despite the $5 deposit). Read more about Otto's Shrunken Head >>

  • Please Don

    Please Don't Tell

    113 St. Marks Place New York, NY 10009
    212-614-0386 Its name stands for "Please Don't Tell," but by now there aren't too many people who don't know about the secret speakeasy in the back of East Village hot dog joint Crif Dogs. Look for the well-dressed couples stumbling out of the phone booth; that's where the secret entrance is hidden. The bar is a tight fit, which is why you should probably make reservations to get a seat.The look is sleek and sexy, with a bottom-lit bar that illuminates your $12 drink and the entire low-ceilinged, brick-walled room, decorated sparingly with a few taxidermied animals. Mixology master Jim Meehan dreamed up the roster of specialty cocktails, all made with fresh, seasonal fruit juices, artisan liquors, homemade bitters and other high-quality ingredients. One of the best things about PDT is the ability to mix high-end cocktails with, say, a deep-fried hot dog with cream cheese or an order of tater tots.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Please Don't Tell >>
