38th St. btw 7th and 8th Ave.

Decent sized sports bar in an area that is slowly accumulating more pubs/sports bars as opposed to pretentious spots.  That being said, you still get the B&T crowd, mostly business types, good amount of TV’s showing sports, and possibly the friendliest bouncer I’ve ever come across.  Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

58th St. btw 8th and 9th Ave.

One of the several bars in this hotel, and one of two outdoor bars.  The draw here is its a good looking place for an event, and tacos. The space is filled with business kids and hotel guests, as well as lots of art filling in the gaps.  Takes a little while to get your drinks, but the service is friendly as they serve average beers and cocktails at slightly above average prices, and they taste fine.

Apologies reader, this is closed, but I’m getting better at posting my backlog!

Irving Pl. btw 17th and 18th St.

I’m not entirely sure what to make of this place, and I’m okay with that.  There’s plenty of seating room in this eclectic establishment, and the crowd is mixed between those who actually looked for it and those waiting to get into a neighboring restaurant/bar.  Also mixed between old locals and young, and the service is really friendly. Nice place for a quiet drink, cocktails at cocktail prices, taste alright.

Cedar St. btw Trinity Pl. and Broadway

Aside from the novelty of the old timey bank vault door, it’s just another bar in the Financial District.  Enjoy watching pleated pants through the windows as you drink your slightly overpriced cocktail in the space that is usually packed with your business types.  Cocktails at slightly above average prices, taste fine.

Fulton St. btw Nassau and Dutch St.

Huge bar that has always been crowded, albeit with plenty of room to move around, each time I’ve gone in.  Not as upscale as some other sports watering holes, but in no way a shit hole. Clientele is all business, plenty of sports on TV, and the service is quick on the service.  Average and above average beers at slightly above average prices, taste fine.

Aaaaaand another one bites the dust, supposedly turning into an Ainsworth…whoopee…

Liberty St. and Nassau St.

Well well, a nice quiet pub that’s sort of tucked away.  Upon finding the entrance, head up some stairs and you find a British themed water hole that has a good amount of space with British beers on tap.  Crowd is business type, can bring in the tourists. Average and above average beers at slightly above average prices, taste fine.

Ave. A btw 13th and 14th St.

Well, there is a Fat Buddha in the middle of this island bar.  Not much else to this place that strikes me as serene.  Just your typical alphabet city bar that draws your college crowd and the rest of the 20’s crowd.  Music is always turned up, but the good bartenders can hear you over it.  Cocktails and beers at average prices, taste alright.

13th St. btw 2nd and 3rd Ave.

So Momofuku took back the space and it is no longer it’s own entity, but I’m posting it anyway, so there.

Depending on the day you come here, you can either walk right in and sit down, or have to wait as there is zero standing room.  Small bar with “specialty” cocktails that are basically normal cocktails with different names; a gin and tonic by any other name…  Crowd is 20’s and 30’s, service friendly, cocktails at cocktail prices, taste fine.

Aaand this place is closed, sorry!
