Don’t go to Rebel Rebel in Union Square if you don’t like people, because it’s a tiny bar where you will find yourself quickly engaged in conversation about anything from cheese to the patriarchy. They don’t have food other than a few snacks (including Spanish potato chips) but eating would just screw up your appreciation of their natural wines, anyway.
