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.
Forum

Forum

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.

  • 12"

    179 Essex St. New York, NY 10002
    212-505-6027

    Record geeks rejoice! Hi-Fi Bar beware! Now there's a dive called 12"ayes, named after the vinyl format. The space is tiny, but the walls are cutely papered with record covers, and they have DJs. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • 151

    151 Rivington St. New York, NY 10002
    212-228-4139

    This unmarked, cavernous little hideaway is done up in cool taupe mod-patterned wallpaper and stucco, with stylish brown leather furniture and a metallic beaded curtain. So it's all the more surprising that 151 is a boisterous, unpretentious space where the bartender sports an unironic AC/DC shirt and air-guitars along with the cock rock that blasts at top volume. It's these kinds of wondrous contrasts that make New York what it is. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • 24-7 Bar & Lounge

    247 Eldridge St. New York, NY 10002
    212-505-7600

    This unpretentious bar is a welcome addition to a growing number of theme joints in the area, but loses brownie points for lying to usaturns out it's not open 25 hours after all. Thereas not a lot of seating, so guys and dolls should leave those uncomfortable stilettos behind. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Abaya

    244 E. Houston St. New York, NY 10002
    212-777-7467

    This minimalist lounge opens at 10 p.m., so youad expect it to rock hard until at least 8 a.m. Sadly, thatas not the caseatheyall boot you out at 4. However, the stark design, white walls, and contrasting black furniture make for an interesting atmosphere. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Arlene

    Arlene's Grocery

    95 Stanton St. New York, NY 10002
    212-358-1633

    http://www.arlenesgrocery.net Arlene's Grocery was converted from a bodega of the same name over a decade ago. It has built oodles of street cred since then, having booked the Strokes pre-fame, hosted the sad Dashboard Confessional guy, and appeared in a Michael Cera movie. Despite (or maybe because of) these neat tidbits, the Grocery isn't frequented by the same show-hounds that attend the Cake Shop and Pianos venues nearby. Hard rock and pop-punk acts tend to dominate the performance space here, but the Grocery's gloomy Butchery Bar (yup, converted from a butchery) still attracts the more general, nomadic L.E.S. crowd on the weekends.

  • Barrio Chino

    Barrio Chino

    253 Broome St. New York, NY 10002
    212-228-6710

    http://www.barriochinonyc.com Getting a seat at this cute little Lower East Side spot can sometimes be difficult, but don't worry, it's worth the wait. Step in and you'll understand why it's so popular with dates: it¹s cozy, dimly lit and flowing with good booze. Exposed brick, thick wooden tables, paintings and hanging paper lanterns give the place a homey, intimate feel. Don't expect some kind of fusion cuisine--the name actually refers to the fact that the restaurant borders both a Latino and Chinese neighborhood. The food is upscale Mexican, with dishes like mole enchiladas, grilled ahi tuna with spicy mango pico de gallo, and tacos stuffed with ingredients like citrus-marinated tilapia and calamari. The bar features a huge selection of tequilas and small-batch mezcals, available in cocktails or straight-up with a sangrita chaser. The downtown crowd also indulges in margaritas, sangria and other Latin American specialty cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Belly

    155 Rivington st. New York, NY 10002
    212-533-1810

    What is it about bars with red walls? Belly (no, not that '90s band) boasts crimson-hued interiors in spades, a relaxed, intimate setting, and cute mixed drinks like "Cuban Iced Tea" --a tasty cross between a mojito and an iced tea--and the inevitable martini bastardizations, like the "Sake-tini."

    The Box

    189 Chrystie St. New York, NY 10002
    212-982-9301

    http://www.theboxnyc.com Fashioned from a renovated 1930's sign factory, the Box is like one of those fabled, flapper-cluttered Gatsby parties--with the addition of burlesque dancers, circus oddities, and other strange folks you might find on Ripley's Believe It or Not. The old-timey, Prohibition-era decor--crystal chandeliers, an abandoned merry-go-round horse, the sepia color scheme--make the place appear as though it were plucked from your crazy great great aunt's photo album. But unlike Gatsby's parties, you can't just show up. Get a reservation or buddy up with the bouncer. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

    The Delancey

    168 Delancey St. New York, NY 10002
    212-254-9920

    http://www.thedelancey.com The Delancey is structured in descending madness, not unlike Dante's Inferno. The roof bar is an idyllic green deck of palm trees and picnic tables, a perfect purgatory for happy hour and amiable heathenry. The main level is a dark dance floor where scantily clad DJs spin pop and house for the preppy, well-to-do sinners. And the basement is a steamy, cavernous hole with gleefully abhorrent punk bands and discounted lukewarm beer. So, it should go without saying, you want to head straight for the underground--as Bart Simpson once said, "All the best bands are affiliated with Satan."

  • Donnybrook

    35 Clinton St. New York, NY 10002
    212-228-7733

    http://www.donnybrooknyc.com The calming, Asian-inspired bamboo and blond wood decor at Lotus makes you almost want to do yoga and eat sushi instead of chugging cheap beer and eating Fritos. It's one of the most laid-back bars around; by day, it's a charming little coffeehouse. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • The Draft

    The Draft

    157 Ludlow St. New York, NY 10002
    212-777-7708

    http://www.thedraftbarnyc.com Across the street from the Lower East Side's prized indie-rock venues--the Cake Shop, Pianos, and the Living Room--sits the Draft, a real outlier on the block. Few tight-jeaned, flamboyantly plumed natives enter, and those that do are here for the same reason as the other patrons: to watch sports on one of several jumbo TVs. Though beer-pong games are regularly in session, the Draft doesn't generally fit the sports-dive formula: Rather than a can of Bud, $2 PBR is the drink of choice, though upstanding craft beer pilsners are also available. Likewise, the walls are covered in a crimson Victorian print instead of framed football-player stills. This is the closest you'll get to a sports bar on the L.E.S.

  • Epstein

    Epstein's Bar

    82 Stanton St. New York, NY 10002
    212-477-2232

    http://www.epsteinsbarnyc.com Formerly Living Room, this space is now Epstein's Bar, a low-key tavern that tends to draw in a very college-y crowd. That's to be expected with 25-cent wing specials, $2 plates of fries, and a big plasma-screen TV behind the bar. Apparently the venue is named for Warren Epstein, the Puerto Rican/Jewish Sweathog of "Welcome Back, Kotter"aand ain't a play on Epstein's Barr. Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Essex St Market

    Essex St Market

    120 Essex St. New York, NY 10002
    212-388-0449

    http://www.essexnyc.com This two-story Lower East Side restaurant has the feel of a gigantic artist's loft, with the hip staff and clientele to match. It's absolutely mobbed on weekend mornings when the brunch crowd comes in hungry for egg dishes and potato pancakes. The dinner menu is contemporary American with international influences: wasabi-encrusted salmon and spicy chipotle pork loin share space with more casual fare like a half-pound Angus burger and a Cuban sandwich. Seats upstairs, illuminated by a large skylight, provide a nice view of the rest of the restaurant. Thirsty? Grab a pitcher of mojitos or Sauza margaritas and start the night out right (the restaurant also has an extensive, moderately priced international wine list and craft beers from all over the country). Dollar oysters and a Tuesday all-you-can-eat deal on mussels and fries make it clear that, despite the sleek décor, this restaurant isn¹t just for those with deep pockets. —Keith Wagstaff Read more about this New York bar or club >>

  • Fontana

    Fontana's

    105 Eldridge St. New York, NY 10002
    212-334-6740

    http://www.fontanasnyc.com Three paintings--a fast car, a busty woman, and Dirty Harry--decorate the first of this enormous venue's three floors. Like the scruffy bands that play in the bar's underground performance space, Fontana's image is overtly rock 'n' roll. Beyond the primary bar located near the entrance, you'll find a chandelier room with massive ceilings and a movie-projector screen hanging above. Half a floor below, a pool table resides; the private party room is located entirely elsewhere. And even on slow nights, Guns N' Roses songs are always blasting on the speakers by your side.

    Freemans

    Freeman Alley New York, NY 10002
    212-420-0012

    http://www.freemansrestaurant.com Finding this obscurely located joint just east of Bowery off Rivington, propelling yourself down an alley that feels like something in a Jack the Ripper movie, and then finding a seat in a thronged dining room hung with stuffed animal heads is the challenge. The modestly inventive food tastes much better than it looks;We're thinking in particular of a gray poached chicken engulfed in carrots and celery;and sets you back less than you'd expect. The lamb sandwich and adult macaroni and cheese also merit commendation, although many of the seasonal dishes seem like bar snacks for the overpriced wines and cocktails.

    Happy Ending Lounge

    302 Broome St. New York, NY 10002
    212-334-9676

    http://www.happyendinglounge.com From the outside, Happy Ending looks like a dilapidated spa. The duck-sauce-colored awning above the door reads, "Xie He Health Club," but this is only a front for what's inside: a club, woo! The first floor emits a consistent reddish hue with crimson-colored booths lining the wall, maroon chairs, and a glowing neon pink ceiling. Less lounge chic, the basement embraces the building's former tenure as an erotic massage parlor, using the original tiled saunas as party booths. Equally curious monthly/weekly events follow: Disco Down Tuesdays, Pleasure Salon Wednesdays, book reading and comedy nights, and everything else you can think of . . . except erotic massages.
