$$$$Perfect For:Drinking Good CocktailsDrinks & A Light Bite

Included In

One floor below the legendary dive bar Barfly’s (and from the same owners), The Golden Horn is a casual cocktail bar set in a very cozy space. It’s warm and inviting, with lots of comfy booths lined with wood paneling, and vintage beer signs that set the scene to a soundtrack of psych- and indie surf rock. This is a place to hang out, not to see and be seen. And it’s Happy Hour all the time here, with cocktails priced around $10 and well drinks for just $4 (plus, a real Happy Hour with even further discounts). And when you inevitably get hungry after a couple of mezcal palomas, you can also get some great crab rangoons and egg rolls from the kitchen inside—called Yellow Ranger—serving Chinese-American dishes.
