Sometimes, after a hard day’s work, you want to hit a dank and dirty bar. Other times, you want something a little more relaxed — perhaps with some small plates or a hearty main here or there. If you are in the mood for the latter, consider Virage (118 Second Avenue, 212-253-0425).
From 12 to 7 p.m., draft beers cost $4.25 at this East Village fav.
Margaritas and mojitos run $6, and brunch drinks such as mimosas, bellinis, and bloodies — as well as pinot grigio and white zinfandel — are only $5.
