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.

  • Cloister Café

    Cloister Café

    238 E. 9th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-777-9128 In the summer this spacious outdoor garden exudes a steamy jungle atmosphere. May-be it's the web of vines strung above like a ceiling, or the plants and the fountains. Or may-be it's the bottle of wine you just drank. Whatever the reason, Cloister CafA(c) has one of the lushest, greenest gardens around, and you really need to check it out.

  • Coal Yard

    Coal Yard

    102 1st Ave. New York, NY 10009
    212-677-4595 The Coal Yard bar is behind its time, and that's a compliment. With East Village gentrification creeping all over the 'hood, it's rare when a new true-blooded dive opens up, rather than a mixologist-fronted cocktail bar. But the proprietors of International Bar, another dive-y neighborhood institution one block away, have imbued the Coal Yard with the same familial quality. This experience is furthered by the bar's self-described "Knights of the Round Table" seating area, an inclusive semi-circle bar that surrounds a tap of $2 Bud, $4 Captain Lawrence, and so forth. King Arthur is played by the long-haired, tattooed bartender, who could totally take on the Kings of Leon. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • The Cock

    The Cock

    29 Second Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-473-9406 While this favorite gay bar may have moved in 2005 (the space was previously inhabited by The Hole), its knowingly-corrupt spirit is still willfully intact. A litany of cheeky riffs on its own name (visit for the "Happy Cock Hour" and you might later be featured on the bar's website in "Happy Cock Shots" photos) combined with weekly dance parties featuring guest DJs ("electro-figurehead" Man Parrish is a regular) have made this grungy spot into an area institution. Glittery go-go boys and cheap, strong drinks (served in seemingly-ironic plastic cups) appear to be in the hands of all patrons. --Mallory Stuchin Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Cocktail Bodega

    205 Chrystie St. New York, NY 10002

  • Coyote Ugly

    Coyote Ugly

    153 1st Ave. New York, NY 10009
    212-477-4431 Coyote Ugly advertises its not-quite-believable Southernness with impudent cowgirl barmaids, a Def Leppardastuffed jukebox, and a burgeoning collection of patron-flung bras. Most weekends at around 1 a.m., you can watch bartenders dancing/stripping on the bar, but it feels a little forced. If you come too many nights in a row, you might even find that itas choreographed.

  • Crocodile Lounge

    Crocodile Lounge

    325 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10003-4255
    212-477-7747 Buy a drink at the Crocodile Lounge, and you receive a ticket for a free cheese pizza, fresh out of the bar’s brick-oven. The gimmick was popularized at the Alligator Lounge in Williamsburg, and it works just as well at this Manhattan iteration. Free pizza is a great unifier, and the basement bar attracts crowds from Gramercy and the East Village as well as plenty of NYU kids. The tap features a range of craft and seasonal beers, plus Yuengling on the cheap. The concept makes for a great value but an even more valuable happy hour, which means there is a lunch crowd and an after-work crowd. Nevertheless, the Crocodile Lounge and its divey, croc-in-the-Nile decor rarely feels un-relaxed. It’s a utilitarian bar to begin, end, or continue a night, but the Crocodile Lounge offers plenty of encouragement to just hang out. There is skee-ball, a jungle-green back patio for fair weather, and on Wednesday nights, the bar plays host to a popular “Trivial Dispute” trivia night. --Alex Spoto Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Croxley Ales

    Croxley Ales

    28 Ave. B New York, NY 10009
    212-253-6140 Ask any dude walking around the East Village where to grab some cheap chicken wings and he'll probably point you here. That's because from Monday through Wednesday wings are only 10 cents each and only 20 cents each on Saturday (12pm-5pm) and all day Sunday. Where there are wings, there are sports, with huge flat-screen TVs fixed in every corner of the restaurant playing games from multiple sports packages. Don't worry, bro, there is plenty of beer, 31 different kinds on tap plus 100 varieties by the bottle, mostly from smaller craft breweries (the bar explicitly states it doesn't carry brews from Bud, Miller or Coors). Croxley Ales also makes 16 different beer cocktails. Yes, they do serve something other than wings, including meaty sandwiches, pub grub like chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks, and burgers. For such a testosterone-heavy joint, the décor is quite subdued, with rustic wooden furniture and hanging red lanterns inside and a leafy back garden outside.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • DBGB


    299 Bowery New York, NY 10003
    212-933-5300 Daniel Boulud's most populist restaurant yet is dedicated to homemade sausages and beer. And what sausages! There's boudin Basque, crafted from pork blood and pig's head that forms a black, sticky round on the plate and tastes completely wonderful; the Parisienne is composed of pale, plump links of coarsely ground veal and aromatic spices, with brilliant carrots Vichy on the side; and the Tunisienne is a thin coil of lamb merguez sausage served with harissa. And there are many more, all of them globe-trotting and delicious. Although reservations are hard to come by, the front bar section is set aside for walk-ins and is pleasantly casual, if way too loud. The only catch: You'll have to choose from an abridged menu instead of the full one teasingly painted on the bar's walls. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Death & Co.

    Death & Co.

    433 E. 6th St. New York, NY 10009
    212-388-0882 Ravi DeRossi (Bourgeois Pig) probably didn't realize the trends he was about to start when he opened this East Village cocktail den in 2007. The first would be the Prohibition Era bartenders, complete with old timey vests and mustaches. The sophisticated speakeasy atmosphere was another. Bar patrons must give their name to the host, who will seat them when (or if) seats become available, which keeps the bar from becoming an overcrowded mess. The most important trend was the slavish devotion to the cocktails, from the carefully measured, freshly made ingredients to the specially shaped ice cubes. Whatever your poison, the bar probably has a complicated drink for it, like the Queen Palm, which matches Plymouth Gin with fresh-squeezed lime and grapefruit juice, pure sugar cane syrup and fresh coconut water. There is also a small plates menu including bites like pulled pork sliders and crisp pork belly over goat cheese polenta. The windowless bar is often filled with couples, who sit back in the luxe leather banquettes illuminated by candles and chandeliers.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Dick's Bar

    192 2nd Ave. New York, NY 10003

    What Dickas Bar lacks in typical gay bar glitz it makes up for in amicability. Without relying on a rotation of spaced-out, G-stringed go-go boys or headlining DJs, Dickas Bar is a haven for people looking for a break from the high-energy cruisefests of the West Village. Comfortable chairs, dependably fierce drinks, a charming pool table, a digital juke box, and a pinball machine create a low maintenance, typically East Village experience.

  • The DL

    95 Delancey St. New York, NY 10002

  • Doc Holliday

    Doc Holliday's

    141 Ave. A New York, NY 10009
    212-979-0312 Embellishing on traditional dive-bar staples--cheap PBR tall boys, a pool table, illumination from Christmas lights, a not-unpleasant musk--Doc Holiday's adds Old West pizazz to the mix. The doors fly open both ways like they do in old saloons, cowboy boots are nailed to the ceiling, bartenders dance on the bar, and whiskey sells quickly while Dolly, Willie, and Johnny are on regular rotation. Locals of all ages and sizes populate this place during workdays; visitors steadily infiltrate every weekend. The transition is seamless. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Double Down Saloon

    Double Down Saloon

    14 Avenue A New York, NY 10009
    212-982-0543 What's in your Ass Juice?" is a hard question to ask with a straight face, but we wanted to know what we were in for at the East Village's Double Down Saloon when ordering this dubiously named shot. Worst of all the bartender casually responded, "Too much stuff to remember," leaving us with the mere reassurance that we hadn't seen her wring out any bar rags over our glasses while making them. But one doesn't push for details in situations like this, especially because we kind of liked the fruity-tasting $3 Ass Juice. The actual bar we're still not sure about. A beloved Las Vegas sleaze spot since 1993, the Double Down opened a second location on Avenue A in February with the same murals, reminiscent of '60s Playboy comics, that cover the original's walls and the same "You puke, you clean" motto. The New York location carefully replicates the endearing qualities of the original, from the rockabilly clientele to the drinks, like the bacon martini ($6), which you wouldn't dream of ordering until after you've had a few. But what can't be copied is the refuge the Nevada location offers locals and tourists from the stomach-turning garishness of the nearby Vegas Strip. Trying to re-create this on Avenue A merely gets you an obnoxiously painful East Village bar doing its best impression of an East Village bar. While the Double Down has its strengths, like a long happy hour (noon to 7 p.m.) seven days a week and a jukebox with standouts like Sonic Youth's Confusion Is Sex/Kill Yr. Idols, we can only hope it will one day fill the shoes of its Sin City predecessor. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Drop Off Service

    Drop Off Service

    211 Avenue A New York, NY 10009

    At this dark, unassuming pub--previously, you guessed it, a laundromat--good beer is the star. Drop Off Service offers well-poured 20-ounce pints of unusual English and German drafts, such as Arrogant Bastard Ale, Marstonas Pedigree, and Hofbrauhaus Original. It's a local haunt, too, so it certainly gathers the great eccentrics of Alphabet City. Drop yourself off here for a drink or four and a few hours of unpredictable East Village antics; this service is impeccable. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • East Village Tavern

    East Village Tavern

    158 Ave. C New York, NY 10009
    212-253-8400 It just looks like your standard neighborhood watering hole until you take a look at the beer selection. There are 16 brews on tap, mostly excellent craft beers like Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold and Brooklyn Pennant Ale, as well as one cask ale. During the week, all draft beers are only $4 or $5 until 7pm; on Mets and Yankees game days you can get a pitcher of Yuengling and a dozen wings for $15. The food is basic pub grub like nachos, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and quesadillas. Get off to a boozy start during brunch service with all-you-can-drink brunch cocktails (mimosas, Bloody Marys, screwdrivers and more) for an hour. A chalkboard lists the beers on tap for the day while HDTVs play whatever games are on with a preference for New York baseball and the New Orleans Saints. Every so often musicians will pop in to play an acoustic set.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • EastVille Comedy Club

    EastVille Comedy Club

    85 E. 4th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-260-2445 Like the brave souls who enlist in its weekly open-mic nights, the EastVille Comedy Club is raw and sometimes charming. The bar area is coated with turquoise paint and the venue is more cellar than club. But yes, there is appeal. Sarah Silverman, Dave Attell, and Aziz Ansari have come through before, standing wide-eyed on that miniscule stage with the subway-tile background. On the weekend, the headliners--lesser-knowns in the Comedy Central/Best Week Ever/30 Rock nexus--take over. They, too, must prove their mettle in a dim basement.

  • Element

  • Ella Lounge

    Ella Lounge

    9 Ave. A New York, NY 10009

  • Elsa


    217 E. 3rd St. New York, NY 10009
    917-882-7395 One step into Elsa, and you're immediately welcomed by a warm reflection of candles glowing against walls and greeted by friendly staff that hands you decorative menus. It's a joint populated by late 20-somethings who meet with old friends or impress dates after work. It carries a speakeasy feel, and the bar is known for its house cocktails, especially the J.M. Jensins, which is a magic blend of gin, Pimm's No. 1, cucumber, lime, Velvet Falernum, and ginger ale. Besides cocktails, three beers are on tap: Six Point Crisp Lager, Ommegang Rare Vos, and Flying Dog Raging Bitch. Also find four selections of absinthe and finger foods if you get a little hungry. Most beverages are served in mason jars, accenting their vintage yet unassuming atmosphere. If you sit by the bar, be sure to admire the intricate details of a large sewing machine stationed in the middle of the counter. --Briana Cheng Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Esperanto


    145 Ave. C New York, NY 10009
    212-505-6559 The food and music of Brazil is the focus of this funky Alphabet City spot, although several other South American countries get their due. Walk past the tiny tables set up on the sidewalk and into a dining room painted a brilliant array of blues, yellows and greens, complemented by quirky lamps and bric-a-brac. The special prix fixe menu, which includes both an entrée and an appetizer, will save you couple bucks; choose from entrees like the moqueca (seafood cooked in coconut milk and served over rice) and the feijoada (a hearty stew made of different types of pork and black beans) and appetizers such as fried calamari and the house ceviche. Order a passion fruit or mango caipirinha, or choose one of the South American wines, which are all half-priced on Mondays. Most nights you'll also find live music ranging from tango and samba to Latin funk and Brazilian forro music.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Evelyn Drinkery

    171 Avenue C New York, NY 10009

  • Experimental Cocktail Club

    191 Chrystie St. New York, NY 10002 If there's such a thing as a "bartender's bar," then the Experimental Cocktail Club certainly qualifies as a "mixologist's mixology lounge." The Lower East Side speakeasy-inspired joint is both Parisian and New York prohibition-era inspired, with Bogart-approved couches and chairs. Although head bartender Nicolas de Soto is all about concocting new creations rather than perfecting old standards, as suggested by the name. His creations warrant the steep ticket price for their attention to detail. It's an uncommonly classy joint for the new party-centric LES. Go on a Tuesday when there is live jazz.
