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.

  • 1020 Bar

    1020 Bar

    1020 Amsterdam Ave. New York, NY 10025

    As Morningside Heights continues its relentless march to total gentrification, it's comforting to know that sometimes a bar is just a bar. 1020 is a refreshingly unpretentious dive in a sea of newly opened yuppie hangouts. Don't order a fancy cocktail here; stick to the beer (they have several good choices on tap), or something simple, like a bourbon on the rocks. While you drink, watch the game on the big screen in the back. There's a pool table, too. Read more about 1020 Bar >>

  • American Legion Post 398

    American Legion Post 398

    248 W. 132nd St. New York, NY 10027-7804

    Tucked into a basement on a residential block in Harlem, the American Legion Post 398 pours booze from nips, not bottles, and Beyonce butts up to Bobby Womack in the jukebox. If this VFW post seems like an impossible secret, it’s not: organist Seleno Clarke's Sunday night jazz jam is legendary in the underground. The Hammond B3 maestro leads a top-notch, sometimes famous, R&B-style groove band that attracts local regulars and curious visitors alike. Still, the no-frills dive bar vibe suggests a bygone era and atmosphere tough to find anywhere else in Manhattan. Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday are jazz nights, while Friday and Saturday are disco (and funk) nights. Order soul food staples like fried fish, collards, and rum cake off of hand-scrawled menus, and find the spacious back patio to air things out during the hot, summer months. Be polite and sign in when you walk through the door. The staff is welcoming and foster wholesome fun: good music, good food, and (especially on disco nights) plenty of dancing. There’s no cover but Post 398 is cash only and closes by midnight. Read more about American Legion Post 398 >>

  • Amsterdam Cafe

    Amsterdam Cafe

    1207 Amsterdam Ave. New York, NY 10027
    212-662-6330 Known as aAmCafa by the locals, this popular Columbia area bar and restaurant recently underwent a dramatic renovation, transforming it from a dive beloved by frat boys into a swanky upscale lounge. Regulars bemoan the recently raised drink prices, fancy table settings, bright lighting, and awkward LCD screen on the wall, but maybe they just havenat discovered the new sports bar in the basement.

    2236 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd New York, NY 10027-7839

  • Billie's Black

  • Café Amrita

    Café Amrita

    301 W. 110th St. New York, NY 10026

    Amrita is a Sanskrit word that means everlasting life, and it also refers to the food of the gods. In a city that can often be cold and distant, what sets Cafe Amrita apart is that owner Robert Song has managed to create an unusually special and welcoming vibe, which has attracted a community of good-natured regulars who in turn welcome newcomers without judgment. (Some folks call it their living room.) The food is pretty good and reasonably priced, there's beer along with the usual cafe; drinks, the music is decent, and it's a great place to watch international soccer--even if you're not a Barcelona fan--and listen to amused jousting over whether Lionel Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo. We'll let you decide. Read more about Café Amrita >>

  • Chocolat Restaurant Lounge

    2223 Frederick Douglass Blvd. New York, NY 10026-1106

  • Cotton Club

    Cotton Club

    666 W. 125th St. New York, NY 10027
    212-663-7980 Looking for a little live gospel with your brunch? How about jazz to complement that soul food buffet? When this Harlem staple opened in the 1920s, it brought in heavy-hitters right away, cycling Bing Crosby and Irving Berlin on the guest roster. Duke Ellington and Ethel Waters also graced the stage regularly. Today, it's still a terrific place to hear some of the best jazz masters in town. Read more about Cotton Club >>

  • Dublin House

    Dublin House

    225 W. 79th St. New York, NY 10027

    This Irish Bar on the Upper West Side is an after-work hangout for people who work around there. On weekends and later on it gets more energetic as the demographic gets younger. Read more about Dublin House >>

  • Elmanbo Bar

    3604 Broadway New York, NY 10031-3242

  • George Keeley

    George Keeley's

    485 Amsterdam Ave. New York, NY 10027
    212-873-0251 Leaning heavily toward showing sport that the Irish play or at least are competing in, this Irish sports bar is also a venue for beer connoisseurs. They feature cask ale (not the beer equivalent of cask wine, no), which is beer in its purest form; unfiltered, room termperature, and naturally carbonated. The expected type of American/Irish bar food is also available. Read more about George Keeley's >>

  • Ginny's Supper Club

    310 Lenox Ave. New York, NY 10027

  • Hudson River Cafe

    697 W. 133rd St. New York, NY 10027
    212-491-9111 Entering this enormous bilevel bar and restaurant in West Harlem feels like stepping onto a yacht. The all-white ground floor houses a sleek bar and a scattering of tables. A dark wood staircase descends dramatically from the ceiling to connect to the upper-level dining room for those in search of more intimate seating. Hudson River Cafe aims for the louche charm of a South Beach club: think Ocean Drive transported to Twelfth Avenue. The staff was immaculately turned out in white button-downs and long black aprons, but seemed seriously inexperienced. At the bar, Blue Point Ales ($6) were tasty, but a Mount Gay and tonic ($8) was suspiciously clear. When we complained, the barkeep seemed befuddled: "Oh, I thought you said Grey Goose. Do you want to drink it anyway?" Uh, no. As if in compensation, the next version was practically all rum and no tonic. No complaints that time. Read more about Hudson River Cafe >>

  • John's Recovery Room

    535 Lenox Ave. New York, NY 10037

    Aptly located by Harlem Hospital, locals have been "recovering" at John's for ages. You need to be buzzed in the door, but don't freak out, as friendly people drink here. The jukebox is chock-full of r&b and hip-hop. Don't try calling in advanceathey don't have a phone. Read more about John's Recovery Room >>
