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.

  • 40/40 Club

    40/40 Club

    6 W. 25th St. New York, NY 10010
    212-832-4040 Jay-Z's nightlife contribution is Empire State, through and through--dim lighting dotting two floors, sports stars lounging in inner V.I.P. chambers, short skirts and shiny tops on every female patron, gold fixtures as far as the eye can see. The lower floor is a rowdy club scene on most weekend nights; if a packed dance pit isn't your style, brush that off your shoulders and stop by mid-week for more sedate, but still infectious, hip-hop groove sessions.

  • Aer Lounge

    409 W. 13 St. New York, NY 10003

    Every year brings more exclusive Meatpacking District clubsaand 2004 saw the opening of Aer Lounge. The big sell here is the outdoor smoking veranda, complete with heaters and comfy couches. The main level of this swish venue is a restaurant/lounge with a carpeted dance area and hologrammed images, offering the usual pricey bottle services and dining menu featuring conch fritters. The VIP members get their own downstairs space, private key (what is it with the private key?), and bar. If you pay enough, you shouldn't have to consort with the riff raff, we suppose.

  • Backdoor Club

    23 W. 19th St. New York, NY 10011

  • Barfly


    244 3rd Ave. New York, NY 10010
    212-473-9660 Barfly's ten TVs have remarkably strategic placement--the only way you could miss a jump shot is if you cover your eyes. Plus, there's a screen designated specifically for MSG games. Despite this fact, Barfly's contents aren't of the typical hurly-burly sports-bar variety. Spires of white branches wrapped in blue lights fill the room, for example, while the crowd attracts folks of all ages and personality types. Some people, in fact, seem to prefer the menu's Crispy Sesame Calamari over the Knicks game. Read more about Barfly >>

  • Birreria


    200 Fifth Ave. New York, NY 10010
    212-229-2560 Despite difficulty in getting to this faux beer garden on the roof of Eataly, the food can be astonishingly good, via Mario Batali and his executive chef Alex Pilas, though the menu is fearfully low on the carbs you need to pursue an evening of drinking. The homemade sausages are gigantic Teutonic-Northern Italian mash-ups of subtle flavor, and the shredded kale with grapefruit in an anchovy vinaigrette may make you remark, “Why didn’t anyone think of that perfect texture and flavor combination before?” But special accolades belong to the oddball mushroom section of the menu, where oyster, ‘shrooms cavort as carpaccio, and maitakes come kissed with pecorino cream. The beer list? Strange but interesting. Read more about Birreria >>

  • Black Bear Lodge

    Black Bear Lodge

    274 3rd Ave. New York, NY 10010
    212-253-2178 The Black Bear Lodge is fairly self-explanatory. It has all the lodge-y goodies one can imagine: lamps with deer antlers, antique sleds, snowshoes and skis on the wall, deer head in the back. With a pint of Sierra Nevada or Yuengling in one hand, use the other to take down woodland creatures by playing the lodge's Big Buck Hunters arcade game. Or heat up with its bar specialty: "Pepper Fucker," a mix of six peppers and Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila. Or try the "Ski Shot," but Google what it is beforehand. Trust us.

  • Blaggard's Pub

    8 W. 38th St. New York, NY 10010

  • Broadway Billiards Cafe

    10 E. 21st St. New York, NY 10010

    With low ceilings and randomly jutting pipes, the basement-level Broadway Billiards isnat the most welcoming place for tall people. Proudly unromantic, this loud, not so wonderfully smelling bar has 24 pool tables lined up in neat rows. Read more about Broadway Billiards Cafe >>

  • Butai Restaurant & Bar

    115 E. 18th St. New York, NY 10003

  • Chocolat Michel Cluizel

    888 Broadway New York, NY 10003
    212-477-7335 Fine french chocolatier Michel Cluizel has only one outpost outside Paris: a store/bar at ABC Carpet & Home. Fans of Cluizel's chocolate bars and his chocolate disks (nuanciers), available in different percentages of cocoa, will be able to choose from an extensive selection here. Then there are the bonbons, available in over 50 different flavors.

  • Coffee Shop

    Coffee Shop

    29 Union Square W. New York, NY 10003
    212-243-7969 Do you know anyone who regularly eats these overpriced burgers? Yeah, neither do we. Most of us just come to gawk at the jaw-droppingly hot waitstaffathis Union Square restaurant and bar is well-known for pulling their hired help from a flawless model/actor gene pool. Though regarded as a hotspot has-been, you can't tell as much during the summer months, when itas unbelievably hard to score a table outside (diners only, they will not-so-kindly remind you). Try heading to the downstairs lounge instead. Read more about Coffee Shop >>

  • Craftbar


    900 Broadway New York, NY 10003
    212-461-4300 The casual counterpart to Craft, this Flatiron District restaurant should provide a relatively affordable dining option for Top Chef fans looking to sample some of Tom Colicchio's, or his chef de cuisine Lauren Hirschberg's, seasonal cooking. The menu is contemporary American with Italian undertones, consisting of both small and large plates such as veal ricotta meatballs, whole wheat papardelle with Berkshire pork ragout and bouchot mussels cooked in white wine and garlic. Diners who just want a quick, casual bite sit at the long, wooden bar and order bruschetta, charcuterie plates and Panini. Above the bar sits a massive glass-enclosed wine cellar, featuring more than a hundred wines from all over the world, including a serious selection of Rieslings and around 25 wines available by the glass. Ever since the restaurant moved to its current location in 2005, there has been plenty of seats, the bi-level space outfitted with polished wood and slick industrial lighting.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about Craftbar >>

  • Crimson

  • Decibel


    240 E. 9th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-979-2733 Do not disrespect Decibel with intentions of sake-bombing--this grungy, subterranean speakeasy offers a purist's take on the consumption of Japan's alcohol of choice. The menu contains junmai, honjozo, ginjo, and daiginjo variations on the rice-based beverage, with about 100 choices in total. No wussy English explanations are provided, so just close your eyes and pick: They're all good, or at least authentic. Similarly, the decor refuses to acknowledge that you're in New York City, and so the graffiti of the wrecked, Blade Runner-esque interior is also written in Japanese. Technically, you can't understand anything here, but the message is very clear. Read more about Decibel >>

  • Dewey

    Dewey's Flatiron

    210 5th Ave. New York, NY 10010
    212-685-7781 This place has nothing to do with the Dewey Decimal System, but rather was named after an old seaman, George Dewey. It has 70 plus beers, a pricey array of single-malt scotches, and a handful of sipping tequilas for the drinker in you. They also serve lots of traditional bar food. If you didn't figure it out already, there's not a lot of ladies hanging around here. So guys, have a bonding night out, and ladies, if you're looking for a little extra male attention, this may be your place. Read more about Dewey's Flatiron >>

  • Flatiron Lounge

    Flatiron Lounge

    37 W. 19th St. New York, NY 10011
    212-727-7741 Ever wanted to find one of those really charming 1920s speakeasy lounges so you could pretend to be in a Damon Runyon short story? The Flatiron Lounge has gone to enormous lengths to create the atmosphere of a 1920s speakeasy with art deco design and architecture everywhere. They've unmistakably succeeded quite glamorously too.

  • Gstaad


    43 W. 26th St. New York, NY 10010
    212-683-1440 With all the efficient, inadvertent coolness that seems to characterize the Swiss, Gstaad is a ski-lodge-style place where anyone can sit and warm themselves. Lots of clean wood surfaces that would seem more stark if the place werenat so relaxed. Good selection of beers Read more about Gstaad >>

  • Irish Times

    254 W. 31st St. New York, NY 10011

  • Justin's

    31 W. 21st St. New York, NY 10010

    Maybe to mediate his gangsta image, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs opened a restaurant that's all cool beiges and subdued lighting, with an atmosphere as close to his stated objective of "family style" as the Flatiron District allows. Surprisingly, the food really rocks, with African diaspora chow from Cajun, Creole, Caribbean, and Southern sources. The jerk chicken wings were heavenly (skip the pineapple dipping sauce). Best entrées on the rotating menu were meltingly tender short ribs and a mellow brown gumbo bursting with seafood. Read more about Justin's >>

    37 W. 26th St. New York, NY 10010

  • Live Bait

    Live Bait

    14 E. 23rd St. New York, NY 10010

    If your memory of Mama's house from The Waterboy stands, you know what Live Bait is all about: gator skulls, plantation gumbo, Gulf shrimp, collard greens. It's a dive bar for Cajun-food enthusiasts, a palace of cool fisherman knickknacks, and a source of Southern comfort. After-work crowds populate the bar prominently in the evening, sipping on Coors Light and snacking on hush puppies. Read more about Live Bait >>
