9th St. btw Ave. B and C

Another cocktail bar on this cocktail bar corner, but this one doesn’t try as hard as the others to be gastropub-y or ultra fancy, and that’s a good thing.  Small bar area with a few tables in front and in the back, friendly service, and the crowd is late 20′s and up.  Cocktails at cocktail prices, taste pretty good.

25th St. btw 6th and 7th Ave.

The only reason the outdoor signs are so large is because there is no other way to know a bar is actually in here.  Step into the hotel lobby, realize there are no signs inside directing you to the bar, and then head to the back to find a small bar that, from the looks of it, only brings in hotel guests.  Plenty of space to sit, good amount of TV’s, and friendly service.  Average and above average beer at slightly above average prices, taste alright.

Turns out it’s closed, color me shocked.  And this is why you don’t wait forever and a day to post things!

Prince St. btw Elizabeth and Mott St.

More of a cafe with a bar, but since the bar is the focal point for the crowd in here, aside from brunch hours, bar it is!  Quiet spot with pretty good bar apps, about a half dozen bar stools with seating along the wall that can feel a little small when all of the tables are rolled out and packed, friendly service.  Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

35th St. btw 7th and 8th Ave.

Used to be Blaggard’s Pub, and now, thankfully, it’s actually a nice spot to go into.  Decent pub that has a good amount of space, crowd is quiet B&T’s (who knew they existed!?!), and the service is friendly.  Lots of taps of average and above average beers, average prices, taste fine.
