52nd St. btw 8th and 9th Ave.

No way this is a sushi place, this is a lounge/bar.  Came here for a birthday party, the back room was packed, and they had lots of room up front near the bar.  The service kind of sucked, but the girl at the bar was great.  The drinks were average to slightly above average prices, tasted fine, and I was possibly one of the few non-Asian/gay persons in here.

23rd St. btw 10th and 11th Ave.

So there aren’t many bars this far over in this area, which usually means everyone goes there.  Everyone and their mother.  This place is always crowded and they just don’t have the fast service to handle it all, even if you’re sitting right at the bar.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good space (with lots of it), and the beers taste good and cost average prices.  There’s just too many people that never leave so good luck finding a seat.

Avenue C btw 7th and 8th St.

One of the better bars in this neighborhood.  It doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb and it doesn’t pretend to be a relic of days past.  Run by some fun Turkish people, there’s two floors of space and a pretty cool atmosphere, actual TV’s with actual sports on, and good tasting beers at average prices.
