Trinity Pl. btw Edgar and Rector St.

The latest in the chain of cheese steak bars in the city, and yet I hardly ever see a person eating a cheese steak.  That aside, it’s just a sports bar where the crowd is business and young people, plenty of TV’s, and the service is nice.  Average beers at average prices, taste fine.

Suffolk St. btw Houston and Stanton St.

Not a dive, yet not a polished bar either, that is trying its best to keep it real in the LES.  Good music, young crowd, good amount of space, this place is nice to bring a few friends but also conducive to meeting other people.  Cocktails at slightly under and decent happy hour cocktail prices, taste fine.

Jane St. and West Side Highway

So the day we went, the elevator to this rooftop bar was out of order.  but if we can make a 65 year old in our group climb the stairs and still have a ball, this place is worth revisiting.  There is a small outdoor patio that really crams them in, but the trick is to sit in the indoor space near the bar where seating is much more aplenty.  Crowd is young to late 20’s, service is nice, views pretty good. Average and above average beers, slightly above average prices, taste fine.

Orchard St. btw Stanton and Rivington St.

We went a-wassailing, and found ciders so clean…that’s as far as my lyrical knowledge goes.  So this is a cider bar, and they have a bunch of different options. A decent sized bar, with a crowd that ranges from early 20’s to 30’s.  If you’re a cider fan, the flavors they serve are very nice, but they can be a bit sweet. Ciders at above average prices, taste fine.

Aaaaan it’s closed.  Bless the master of that house, and the mistress too!

Ludlow St. btw Houston and Stanton St.

Not your typical hotel bar, in that it’s a bit more nice than your run of the mill hotel bar.  Also, there is a lack of tourists and mainly an older crowd. All that being said, it doesn’t get too crowded in this decent sized space.  Service leaves a lot to be desired, but the beers and cocktails are pretty good. Above average beers and cocktails at above average prices, taste fine.

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

Well, what a lovely, quiet spot that I have stumbled upon.  Small rooftop bar that sits about 20, so hurry up (I think I can’t legally finish the song) but you get the idea.  The view is essentially the Time Warner Center, and other adjacent tall buildings, with a glimpse of Central Park. But, as the opening sentence says, a quiet bar.  Crowd is young mixed with tourists, service is nice, wine and beers at slightly above average prices, taste fine.
