The Skinny

174 Orchard St.
New York, NY 10002


  • Daily 4pm-4am
  • Private Party
The Skinny is different from other Lower East Side bars, in that LeBron James and other giants could fit comfortably inside. Contrary to the usual cavernous, low-clearance dwellings found on the L.E.S., this one features a 20-foot ceiling. And though this grungy pad is only five feet wide, a lot fits in it: a Jägermeister shot machine, splatter-painted local art, a gold hand sculpture with a disco ball dangling from it, and a DJ. Combine them all and you get a more-rambunctious-than-usual dive-bar escapade.
