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.

  • A60

    60 Thompson St. New York, NY 10012
    212-219-2000 It's members only, ya plebes, so take your non-A-list ass to a dive down the street. Jason Pomeranc takes luxury seriously at his 100-room hotel, 60 Thompson (linens by Frette, staff uniforms by Cerruti), all the way up to the building's exclusive rooftop bar. A60's visitors are limited to celebs and those who pay out for a room at Pomeranc's pricey palace. Read more about A60 >>

  • Ace of Clubs

    Ace of Clubs

    9 Great Jones New York, NY 10012
    212-677-6963 Beneath Acme Bar, under the tables of people downing po-boys and catfish fingers, the tiny Ace of Clubs awaits. There is almost nothing inside it except some chairs, a stage, and bare black 'n' blue walls. Consequently, all focus is targeted at the band of the night, which ranges from pentagram-wielding shredders to scowling detuned headbangers to the screamo-incarnations of both. A disparate bunch of pop/punk/indie rockers punctuate this venue's show calendar, and the staunchly neutral interior is always ready to accommodate. Read more about Ace of Clubs >>

  • Agozar!


    324 Bowery New York, NY 10012
    212-677-6773 There is a reason that this little Noho eatery is so festive. That would be its daily happy hour, which runs all night Sunday and Monday and from 5pm to 8pm the rest of the week, with two-for-one drink specials on mojitos and other specialty cocktails at the bar. Of course, there are other reasons to come here besides boozing. The restaurant serves up Latin American cuisine with a Cuban bent, including tapas like tiny empanadas, plantain chips with guacamoles and mini Cuban sandwiches. There are entrees as well, Cuban classics like lechon (Cuban roast pork) and shredded beef, plus dishes from other Latin American countries like grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, paella, and chicken and rice. As one would expect for a place with such great drink deals, the atmosphere can be a bit raucous at times, especially in the narrow bar area in front. The dining room, painted in bright shades of red and orange and decorated with large colorful paintings depicting life in Cuba, is a little bigger and the vibe a little more laid-back.

  • Alibi

    116 Macdougal St. New York, NY 10012
    212-254-9996 It's hard to imagine what the owners were going for, trying to create a swank lounge in the middle of NYU/tourist central. Alibi may be stocked with the cushy banquettes and the fancy martinis, but it's quickly devolved into "Girls Wanna Have Fun" Thursday nights with $3 Buds and DJs over-reliant on the Top 40.

  • Amity Hall

    Amity Hall

    80 W. 3rd St. New York, NY 10012
    212-677-2290 Greenwich Village's newest beer hall shoots for an outdoor serenity inside its paneled basement; the door-stopper menu features hundreds of beers, from local to Trappist. Pick a few to give the frazzled waiter; they often run out of the primo brews by early evening. Read more about Amity Hall >>

  • Back Fence Bar

    Back Fence Bar

  • Bar 89

    Bar 89

    89 Mercer St. New York, NY 10012
    212-274-0989 Bar 89, a slick two-floor cocktail lounge, makes things easy for its crowd of glossy cell-phone bearers. The only potentially embarrassing kink is the all-glass bathroom doors. Luckily, upon locking, they fog up. Read more about Bar 89 >>

  • Bar Next Door

    Bar Next Door

    129 MacDougal St. New York, NY 10012
    212-529-5945 When looking to dip out of the cold streets of West Village, Bar Next Door is the hearth to beat. Nestled in the basement of a restored townhouse, this charming and diminutive bar is decorated by hanging portraits, flickering candlelight, and cozy black seating. The outside world loses shape with the help of soft live jazz each weeknight and the menu of drinks is extensive, showing off over 50 specialties--and 25 are served hot with whipped cream. (Try the butterscotch-schnapps-laden Nikki Coffee; it's perfect for dissolving that late-autumn chill.) There's also a shorter and moderately priced wine list (most glasses only cost $8).

  • Barrows Pub

    463 Hudson St. New York, NY 10014

    With its pine paneling and all-American feel, Barrows Pub could be some ironic hipster playground. Instead, it's more like a musty VFW hall transplanted from Binghamton or Buffalo. And thank goodness for that, since the happy-hour prices are country, too. A few malty Rheingolds later, you will mistake the Quick Draw terminals for pomo video projections, the potbellied construction workers for aloof V.I.P.'s, and the friendly bartender for a lockjawed bouncer.

  • Beauty Bar

    Beauty Bar

    231 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-539-1389 This is the only bar where you can have a gin & tonic while getting your nails done (but not your hair did, alas). No joke: This place offers a $10 manicure-plus-martini deal. File those claws down directly across from a fully stocked bar amid prim and proper 1950s hair-salon décor, ambiance supplied by a vinyl-only DJ. It's a theme-bar gimmick, yeah, but as long as you don't mistake the nail polish for the vodka (antique beauty products sit on the same shelf as the drinks), why not? Read more about Beauty Bar >>

  • Belmont Lounge

    Belmont Lounge

    117 E. 15th St. New York, NY 10003
    212-533-0009 A downstairs spot gives Belmont Lounge a slightly exclusive vibe. The back game room draws a group looking for a friendly wager, friendly competition, or just a friend for the night. Read more about Belmont Lounge >>

  • Big Bar

    Big Bar

    75 E. 7th St. New York, NY 10003

    At times, the need for a hidey-hole arisesawhen meeting a friend's ex for a not-so-innocent drink, or dating an uncouth geek with whom you'd rather not be seen. Avoiding the crowd is easy at Big Bar, a rare underpopulated East Village den. Four-dollar shots of JA$?germeister help to lubricate an evening in its suggestively black-PVC-clad booths, dim red lights cast a seductive glow, and the discreet bartender won't tell tales out of school (though she drew the line at a frisky couple's recent attempt to snog in the bathroom).

  • The Bitter End

    The Bitter End

    147 Bleecker St. New York, NY 10012
    212-673-7030 The painted, floating heads of Bob Dylan, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and Stevie Wonder stare at you from the wall behind the bar at the Bitter End. They are the ghosts and previous performers of this famous, half-century-old live music/comedy venue. The Bitter End books a collective of alternative rockers, some more rockin' than others. Regardless, there is a YouTube video of Lady Gaga--before she was gaga--howling in front of the brick-wall-backed stage. Perhaps there are more legends to come. Read more about The Bitter End >>

  • Botanica


    47 E. Houston St. New York, NY 10012

    You want someplace cool but not forbidding, neither empty nor too crowded. Then you remember the old standby: Botanica. After a movie at the Angelika, you walk over to the subterranean saloon, a cavernous, low-key space that won't intimidate the doctor your misguided friends set you up with. Luckily, you don't have to make a doctor's salary to cover the tab here, and the comfy armchairs and love seats encourage intimacy; you get extra miles from your cleavage/booty (delete as appropriate) when you bend over to reach the low coffee table. When the doctor turns out to be not so bad after all, you suggest moving to the quiet back room (semi-deserted for canoodling). Who knew discussing gastroenterology could be so arousing? Sunday Soiree, a weekly show with comics from Comedy Central and Sirius in Botanicaas back room. Sun 7pm. Read more about Botanica >>

  • Brinkley

    Brinkley's Pub & Kitchen

    406 Broome St. New York, NY 10013
    212-680-5600 Brinkley's mascot is a rakish, bow-tied teddy bear posing next to a bicycle: an example of the pub's emphasis on elegance and informality. For instance, though wine-colored, leather-studded couches fill the room, the walls are made of subway tiles. The beer and cocktail selection is minimal, but carefully curated. In the cocktail department, try the Bluebird, featuring Blue Coat gin with blue-cheese-stuffed olives on the side; on tap, go with Ommegang Witte, a malty, light, and locally brewed Belgian made with orange peel and coriander. Both go well with the grass-fed hamburger, and both will earn you a nod of approval from the handsome teddy bear. Read more about Brinkley's Pub & Kitchen >>

  • Cafe Wha?

    Cafe Wha?

    115 Macdougal St. New York, NY 10012
    212-254-3706 Ah, the historic Cafe Wha? This is the place where many a tourist (and/or blossoming NYU freshman) has historically come to spend his or her nights (and $10-12 on the cover charge). Yes, a mixed crowd perpetually piles into perpetually packed Wha?, usually upon learning that the establishment once hosted Jimi Hendrix, the Boss, and Bob Dylan (though the latter only played at the spot's previous location next door). Pleasantly enough, an in-house cover band awaits inside, delivering live renditions of songs by Bands That We Can All Agree On, ranging from the Beatles to Radiohead. Read more about Cafe Wha? >>

  • Bowlmor Lanes

    Bowlmor Lanes

    110 University Place New York, NY 10003
    212-255-8188 A staunch Midwestern bowling alley melded with a fly a70s disco, Bowlmor lanes is one of the few places where fashionistas will gladly kick off stilettos for a pair of smelly, community shoes. Bright colors and loud music give it sass, while multiple martinis can turn a set of 10 pins into 20. Come early, thoughathe wait on weekends borders on unbearable. Read more about Bowlmor Lanes >>

  • Club Groove

    125 Macdougal St. New York, NY 10012

  • Comedy Cellar

    Comedy Cellar

    117 Macdougal St. New York, NY 10012
    212-254-3480 The Comedy Cellar is hot, hot, hot. Sure, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Dave Chappelle perform here. But did you know that David Lee Roth was here? And Ice-T? Doing stand-up comedy. My goodness. Show up early for the big names or be prepared to wait in a very long line. Read more about Comedy Cellar >>

  • Comedy Village

    82 W. 3rd St. New York, NY 10012
