Rivington St. btw Clinton and Suffolk St.

Good sized bar with a separate bar in the back where you can watch some live music.  Good old school LES feel, music is great, had movies (muted) on TV, service was friendly.  Everything in cans and bottles, average prices, tastes like beers out of bottle and cans, which I enjoy.

Aaaaaand another one bites the dust

Rivington St. btw Clinton and Suffolk St.

Head down stairs to a decent sized space with a lot of sugary cocktails and some oddball drafts.  Crowd is on the young side, service is friendly, and there’s a good mix of music. Only downside is for those over 7’-6”, it’s a little cramped.  Average and above average beers, average prices, taste fine.

Aaaaaand, its closed.

2nd Ave. btw 89th and 90th St.

Used to be Blonde, Brunette, and a Redhead, but they’ve added some lights…lots of lights in the front, and gave it a makeover.  More in the gastropub vein now, the crowd is still young 20’s to early 30’s, service friendly, small areas in the front and back.  Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

Houston St. btw W. Broadway and Wooster St.

I was floored by the fact that I could find a casual, non-hotel based cocktail place around SoHo!  Huge spot up a flight of stairs, the crowd is mixed with after work groups, dates, and people just meeting for a drink.  Service is friendly, cocktails at cocktail prices, taste fine.

Rector St. and Washington St.

Lively bar, and the indoor space is decent sized but can get crowded, with a good sized outdoor space.  The downside is that the outdoors area it rarely ever sees the sun; whether being blocked by the tall building it hides under or the scaffolding.  So, crowd is mixed with tourists, business, young-uns, and the service is friendly. Above average beers at only slightly above average prices, taste fine.
