Union Square Park
What used to be Luna Park is now reopened but with a lot less table space outside of the building. Decent sized space that brings in the B&T’s by the fistful, the staff presents you with cocktails and liquor until it’s time to catch your train home to the suburbs. Cocktails at above average prices, taste alright.
40th St. and 6th Ave.
I always thought this was a sandwich place, but come here after work and you just find a bunch of people drinking. And during the winter, they drag out a fire pit in the middle of a bunch of chairs. Not much else to it, all outdoors, above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.
South St. btw Maiden Lane and John St.
Picnic benches with a good beer selection on a pier with good burgers (though pricey) = bar, so say I! Basically, I just summed it all up in that one sentence, but I’ll expand to show effort. New spot next to the Seaport where there’s a good amount of space to sit with some friends or make new ones, service is a little slow, and it’s outdoors. A negative is the looong walk back down the pier to the bathrooms. Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.
South Street Seaport
I’m glad they’re continually finding ways to make the Seaport more attractive to the younger crowd…though now it’s a noisy, younger crowd. They basically plunked an outdoor club on the pier, threw in some Porto Potties, sprinkled in some average priced craft brews, and voila, you have an outdoor bar that is usually full of people. Tables to sit at, many places to stand, service is pretty quick, beers taste fine, and a foosball table.
West Side Highway and 42nd Street
I guess this is becoming a chain…they should’ve kept it to just 72nd St. This can only be for tourists or bikers or those Tibetan protesters who need a break from running across the highway. Now, that’s not to say I’m not glad there isn’t a bar on the water in midtown, but this place is a far cry from its namesakes uptown. $8 for a beer!?! Enough said. Service is pretty good, lots of tables, but really, you’re not serving liquid gold, it’s your regular, average beer that tastes like regular, average beer.
