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.

  • Lucy


    135 Ave. A New York, NY 10009

    Lucy's is named after the Betty White of Alphabet City: a beloved, alcohol-distributing grandmother figure who presides over a motley mix of locals, regulars, and neighbors. From the sheet-covered windows, you can tell that this quintessential dive is something more than a quintessential dive-it's a clubhouse. People know each other's names here. Fitted with two pool tables, non-seasonal Christmas lights, and neon beer signs, it has all the dive-bar conventions minus the faux-antique decor of neighboring bars--everything in here has aged through genuine repeated use. Make sure to say hi to Lucy when you drop by; she'll be smiling behind the bar. Read more about Lucy's >>

  • Lunasa


    126 1st Ave. New York, NY 10009
    212-228-8580 This East Village spot basically takes the traditional Irish pub formula and adds a modern, minimalist sheen to it. Its name roughly translates from Gaelic to "August," which refers both to month the bar was born and to an ancient harvest festival. August is also a great time to enjoy its quaint backyard, where ivy-covered walls surround a handful of wooden benches. During colder months, you can settle in at the bar and watch the game on one of several HDTVs. The owners regularly hang exhibitions from artists they like up on the red brick walls. The bar serves pub fare like bangers and mash, fish and chips, and burgers along with more upscale entrees such as pan-seared salmon and wild mushroom ravioli to go with the 11 beers on tap. Come in during the week (Mon-Fri, 4pm-7pm) for happy hour, where a variety of drinks and appetizers are half-off.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Lunasa >>

  • Mama

    Mama's Bar

    34 Ave. B New York, NY 10009
    212-777-5729 Sweet simplicity reigns at the newly opened Mamaas Bar, sibling and neighbor of bustling Mamaas Food Shop. Thereas no sign on the door at this cozy, low-key, a40s-style neighborhood joint. Grab a cheap bottle ($4), one of the Brooklyn Brewery beers on tap ($4), or a shot of Mamaas homemade flavor-infused vodkas, which include ginger, raspberry, and cherry varieties. Kick back and check out the hot, bike-riding barflies and delicately assembled jukebox catalog. Read more about Mama's Bar >>

  • Mancora


    99 1st Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-253-1011 This Peruvian restaurant relocated to the East Village after outgrowing its Brooklyn digs in 2004. Named after a coastal region of northwestern Peru, its menu is filled with seafood like shrimp sautéed in garlic, sweet potato-encrusted red snapper and seven different ceviches featuring everything from salmon to squid. Not everything is from the sea, including meaty dishes like grilled sirloin with chimichurri and Peruvian rotisserie chicken. If you just want to stop in for a Peruvian beer or pisco sour, you can always just order a few tapas at the bar. Also available: margaritas, tropical cocktails and several affordable house wines. The whole place has a lively nautical theme with fishing nets, starfish and an octopus painting contrasting with more subdued design elements like exposed brick walls and flickering tea lights. During brunch, you can get entrees such as grilled steak and eggs or a salmon omelette with a cocktail for under $10.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Mancora >>

  • Manitoba


    99 Ave. B New York, NY 10009
    212-982-2511 Despite CBGB's new mantra as a tourist haven, the New York punk scene lives on at Manitoba's, owned by Dick Manitoba, minor rock God and former lead singer for Dictator. If there're no bands thrashing around, the rough-and-tumble jukebox picks up the slack, and the photo collection serves as a tour through punk's history. In these (sniff) post-election days, Manitoba's would be a likely place to ignite a surging anarchy movement. Read more about Manitoba's >>

  • Mason Dixon

    Mason Dixon

    133 Essex St. New York, NY 10002
    212-260-4100 It was inevitable: a mechanical bull in the East Village. Sign a waiver, step into the padded ring and prepare to be embarrassed in front of a raucous crowd. That's not the only Southern touch to this Lower East Side bar. The bourbon list is more 70-strong with bottles from distilleries large and small, including a selection of high-end limited edition bourbons like Jefferson's Presidential and Michter's 25 Year-Old Single Barrel Bourbon. Walking into this bar is like discovering a posh Southern roadhouse; hanging off the wood ceiling are a variety of elaborate chandeliers, some covered with red shades and others decorated with twisting antlers. Private booths are lined with metal horseshoes while cushier banquettes are complemented with rusty license plates. The kitchen puts out stick-to-your-ribs fare like mac and cheese, fried shrimp, cheese grits, baby back ribs and more. Flat-screen TVs provide plenty of entertainment on football Sundays when nobody is riding the bull.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Mason Dixon >>

  • Mayahuel


    304 E. 6th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-253-5888 Tequila and its close cousin mezcal are the focus of this cozy East Village cocktail den. The drinks were concocted by Death & Co. bartender Phillip Ward, so you know they're taken seriously. These aren't your standard margaritas; drinks like the Cinnsation (mezcal, mulled apple cider, cinnamon bark and Peychaud's Bitters) and the Cantinflas (mole bitters, tequila, mezcal, sherry and Grand Marnier) utilize fresh, homemade ingredients as well as top shelf liquor. If you want to get schooled in the ways of quality tequila and mezcal (which is made from the same agave plant as tequila), you can always order them in flights of three, which come with a complimentary sangrita. Soak up all that booze with small plates such as chorizo-stuffed shrimp and scallops or full plates like lobster ceviche and tamales filled with mole-braised chicken. The hacienda speakeasy vibe comes from the colorful Mexican tile, smiling Dia de los Muertos figurines and hidden-away stalls.— Keith Wagstaff Read more about Mayahuel >>

  • McSorley's

  • McSorley

    McSorley's Old Ale House

    15 E. 7th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-473-9148 Supposedly, this place is the oldest operating ale house in the city. This is certainly believable, considering the way it looks and smells. Opened in 1854, on the very outer edge of the Sixth Ward (otherwise known as the Five Points) this establishment did not admit women. Abe Lincoln, John Lennon, and Woody Guthrie are among some of the better-known patrons. McSorley's also serves its own brew. Drop by, even if just to get a feel for the unchanged 150-year-old atmosphere. Hours: Daily 11am-1am. Read more about McSorley's Old Ale House >>

  • Mehanata

  • Mission Dolores

  • Mona's

    224 Ave. B New York, NY 10009

    Mona's is a laid-back, lived-in neighborhood bar with no pretensions about what it is. There are a couple of decent beers on tap, scratched-up wooden booths, a good rock 'n' roll jukebox, and a nice enough pool table. It's a cozy, comforting presence on trendy Avenue B.

  • Mud Coffee

    Mud Coffee

    307 E. 9th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-228-9074 The East Village loves the hip mom-and-pop MUD, and vice versa. You can load up on their strong classic brew at the original orange trucks at Astor Place, Union Square, and Wall Street, or sip it from handmade ceramic mugs at their tiny, j'adorable cafA(c), which also features noshes, wine, and beer. Just don't open a stand at the airport, guys. Read more about Mud Coffee >>

  • Mumbles


    179 3rd Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-477-6066 Inside, Mumbles is a mediocre bar/restaurant with a mean bartender and uninterested waitstaff. Outside, the breeze blows and the alcohol flows while Third Avenue ambles by. Thereas a lot of room in the outside area, so fill it up with friends who like cheap drinks and have time to hang out. Read more about Mumbles >>

  • Musical Box

    219 Ave. B New York, NY 10009

    First, you'll have to find the place. Multiple trips to the Musical Box, and you'll still walk up and down that one block of Avenue B, muttering to yourself, "Where the hell is it, again?" But persevere, and you'll eventually stumble across the unmarked door. Part the velvet curtains and step inside: The bar's on the left, and the pool table's in the back room, with well-worn couches you've sat in too many times to mention. Musical Box's outdoor patio is less patio, more tiny scrap of cement for every smoker in the bar to pack themselves into for most of the night. Read more about Musical Box >>

    Nevada Smiths

    100 3rd Ave. New York, NY 10003
    212-982-2591 Between Third and Fourth Avenues in the East Village, Nevada Smiths (tagline: "where football is religion") is open from the early morning until just before sunrise. One of the best-known bars for watching soccer--or football--in the world, the schedule at Nevada Smith’s is tied to when matches happening in other time zones are aired. But no matter the hour, the bar’s patrons are friendly and impassioned, despite its temporary relocation to Webster Hall while it waits to move into new digs. (The old ones were demolished.) Though the emphasis is on English soccer (check out the Manchester United jerseys on the walls), Nevada Smiths airs a broad variety of international matches on twenty television screens. There’s also a small and often packed dance floor in the back, where a post-collegiate crowd breaks it down to top-forty hits in between reasonably-priced well drinks and sips of the more than forty beers available.  --Diana Clarke Read more about Nevada Smiths >>
