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.

  • KGB Bar

    KGB Bar

    85 E. 4th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-505-3360 The KGB Bar was, once upon a time, a gathering spot for Ukrainian Socialists. To this day, a Communist flag hovers over the dozens of vodka brands resting on the bar, crimson curtains block all natural light, and propaganda ornaments the room like tchotchkes at a TGI Friday's. This would all be genuinely disconcerting if it weren't for the bar's current incarnation: a literary club. Sunday nights are for fiction, Monday nights are for poetry, and author readings are usually scheduled through Thursday. They even publish a lit journal! Nonetheless, the vodka-loaded bar is still highly functional. You, after two hours in this place, less so. Read more about KGB Bar >>

    La Caverna

    122 Rivington St. New York, NY 10002
    212-475-2126 Ever wonder what a bar would look like at the center of the Earth or on, say, the Flintstones? This subterranean spot on the Lower East Side is decked out completely in faux-stone and dramatic red lighting, almost as if it was an elaborate set from a movie. At least one thing is real: the booze. Cocktails like lychee martinis and caipirinhas are available alongside around 20 different wines and beers by the bottle. Several draped tables surround the stone bar, filled with people indulging in classic Italian dishes. While most diners nibble casual fare like Panini, a wide variety of bruschetta and simple pastas, there are also a few entrees for serious appetites, such as the grilled steak with mushrooms and shrimp sautéed with garlic, butter and white wine. La Caverna is also a good place to get ready for a night of partying, as its $4 drink happy hour lasts until 10pm Tuesday through Sunday.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about La Caverna >>

  • La Paella East

    La Paella East

    214 E. 9th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-598-4321 It's all about Spain at this tapas spot in the East Village, open since 1995. Inside, rustic wooden furniture, wrought-iron chandeliers and a mural depicting Don Quixote give the place a worn-in, Old World vibe. The mood is often festive thanks to the long list of Spanish wines and pitchers of fruit-filled sangria. As you probably could guess from the name, paella is a big draw here; try the Basque, filled with chorizo, chicken, shrimp, mussels and squid. Ham and cheese croquettes, goat cheese-stuffed peppers, bacon-wrapped shrimp and grilled sea scallops are just some of the small plates on the menu. Choose individually or opt for the mixed tapas plate for two. Several deals are also available: the three-course $13 lunch set and the three-course early bird special (including a beer or glass of sangria) for $17, available between 5pm and 7pm.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about La Paella East >>

  • The Library

    The Library

    7 Ave. A New York, NY 10009
    212-375-1352 The Library is named as such in the same way that Bob Saget's most famous joke is called "The Aristocrats." After taking in its scholarly façade--sullied racks and racks of books--you spot, on a sign above the bar, an advertisement for "The Pube," which consists of a can of Busch and a shot of whiskey, all for $5. That's the drink of a true dive. Grunge and punk music blares in the background, and skull heads decorate the blackened room to match. Read more about The Library >>

  • Lit Lounge

    Lit Lounge

    93 Second Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-777-7987 Marquee and Tenjune aren't the only places to dance in this town (but you're not there for the dancing, are you?). Lit offers stellar DJs spinning anything with a good pulse (though they tend towards the New Wave, and have for years), surprisingly cheap drinks and frequent open-bar hours, and a tiny, cozy space for boozing/schmoozing. The real intimacy and gyrating is found downstairs in the cave-like bunker where no one cares what you're wearing, only when it's coming off. Read more about Lit Lounge >>

  • Local 138

    Local 138

    138 Ludlow St. New York, NY 10002

    Local 138 proves that you only need one item to open a bar: a physical, wooden bar. Nothing special, really, just a plank of wood that separates the bartender and the crowd, and leaves space for some beers to rest in the middle. This spot's boldest decorations include thick turbine fans, golden bronze paint, and two box TVs; it's neither a dirty rock 'n' roll dive nor a tchotchke-laden sports bar, but it ain't pretty, either. Natives and nomads come here precisely for that reason, refueling during the generous 5-to-9 happy hour before reemerging into the night. Read more about Local 138 >>

  • Loreley Restaurant

    Loreley Restaurant

    7 Rivington St. New York, NY 10002
    212-253-7077 The backyard of this Lower East Side beer garden seems too big to be tucked away on such a narrow stretch of Rivington Street. Walk through the perfectly pleasant dining room, lined with exposed brick lit by hanging chandeliers, to where the real action is: outside. Rows of thick wooden tables are littered with hulking steins of beer, shielded from the rain by umbrellas. You can order 12 different beers by the half-liter and liter, including Spaten, Hofbrau, Radeberger and other brews from Germany. Settle down for an afternoon of drinking or order a full meal. Meaty entrees include the brined, braised and roasted pork shank, sausage platter with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, and thinly pounded pork schnitzel. If you aren't that hungry, a few warm pretzels or a single bratwurst should hold you over until you are. There are also a few German, Austrian and New World wines available alongside bottled beers and a small selection of cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Loreley Restaurant >>

  • Louis 649

    Louis 649

    649 E. 9th St. New York, NY 10009
    212-673-1190 Doubling as a showroom for owner and furniture designer Andrew Rumpler, the cozy and elegant Louis showcases the man's capable craftsmanship, luring customers with custom-made smooth wooden tables and durable benches, an unglazed porcelain-tile-covered bar top, simple pull-down cabinets, and 1930s art deco lighting designs. If you could care less about sofas, the expansive wine list, delectable hors d'oeuvres, and live jazz could change your mind. Read more about Louis 649 >>

  • Lovers of Today

    Lovers of Today

    132 1/2 E. 7th St. New York, NY 10009

    Lovers of Today, the latest in semi-secret Alphabet City cocktail bars, does everything right. As one emphatic Yelp user once declared, "Bring your date here, and you'll get laid." We'd have to agree. This tiny subterranean speakeasy possesses subdued, classic decor with a Hogwarts mystique: vintage chandeliers, weathered plastered walls, leather-booth seating, a mahogany ceiling. And, most importantly, Steven. He's the lanky, bespectacled bartender who prepares 10 types of $12 cocktails, the ingredients of which are delicately painted on the window. "Fan Mail," for example, consists of lime, lavender, honey, aged rum, and champagne. Did you hear that? Lavender! Yeah, these drinks are definitely worth 12 bucks, especially if you're buying two.

    Luca Bar & Restaurant

    111 Ave. A New York, NY 10009
    212-982-9533 Alphabet City's Latin fusion hub, Yuca Bar, entices the gullet through key specials. The happy hour extends from 1 to 8 p.m., all tapas are half off on "Loco Tuesday," and drink specials range from watermelon martinis to caipirinhas. In the spirit of the place's cuisine, the decor mixes together bits and pieces of Latin imagery--clay vases, photos of crowded apartment fronts, sunlight-colored paints--to relaxing effect. An order of plantains completes the experience. Read more about Luca Bar & Restaurant >>
