A place with $3 beers and no of official hours. Look for a door with aluminum foil and an arrow.
Franklin st. nr. Kent. Greenpoint, 11222
Charming unassuming cool bar in L.I.C.Our fave in the area. Expect to hear French and live Jazz.
50-04 Vernon Blvd, LIC, Queens, NY 11101, tel. (718) 784-2350
More diner than bar. But opened late and a good option in Hell’s Kitchen.
Serving Thai comfort food in a music themed setting. I thought places like these in NYC only existed in the 90’s. Happy Vinyl is still around.
Don’t miss the bathrooms.
756 9th Ave, nr. 51st st. New York, NY 10019, tel. (212) 974-2003
A tiny beacon of light in Hell’s Kitchen, a place lacking of good bar options.
A good place to keep in your back pocket.
Free popcorn and adorable shark squeeze toy with your sangria.
455 w. 48th st, corner of 9th ave., Hell’s Kitchen, tel. 646 682 9062
One of the best places to go dancing. You feel more like at a private event than at a club/bar, but without having to put up with the stupid attitude that comes with it.
90 Wythe ave. Williamsburg, Brooklyn,
More resturant than bar. Extra credit for good live music. Jazz mostly.
While most cocktail bars go for the 20s prohibition look, this spot goes for the 90s look, the 1890’s look. It seem a little pretentious to offer a ‘hamburger sandwich’ but they more than make up for it.
