When fall starts to hit in full force and the temperature reading on your weather app slowly starts to go down and down as the days pass, there are a few ways you can decide to cope. You could cozy up at home and begin your seasonal hibernation. Or you can take advantage of the opportunity to begin celebrating whiskey-drinking season.
Assuming you wisely choose the latter, continue making good choices by ordering Jameson® Caskmates. Jameson partnered with seven craft beer breweries to create this special whiskey, which is finished in craft beer barrels - and also (unsurprisingly) happens to pair quite well with beer. You can find Jameson® Caskmates at all the bars in the guide below.

Full of regulars watching sports on TV, The Brew Inn is the kind of place you settle down to eat a burger at the bar. Fortunately, their burger is also excellent. Feel free to cozy up and spend a few hours.
Automatic Slims is a West Village bar with everything you need and nothing more. Drinks come in plastic cups, there's a TV, and it's low key here even on weekends. This is a normal, lovable, neighborhood bar suited for your seasonal drinking needs.
If you're looking for a true classic NYC watering hole, Peter McManus is it. Open in Chelsea since 1932, this place is full of history - for whatever reason, all of your favorite comedians have hung out here, and a whole bunch of TV shows and movies have used it as a backdrop.
A cozy spot with big leather booths and beer & whiskey combos, The Three Diamond Door is a quintessential East Williamsburg/Bushwick hang. This one's great for groups as well.
Not only does this bar have an overall "let me sink into this leather couch and never get up" vibe, it also has a fireplace. Do you know how rare bars with fireplaces in the middle of Manhattan are? We don't have a figure on the matter, but we can assure you they're not all that common.
It's big. It's dark. It's cozy. You can dance downstairs, while the upstairs has booths and old-timey pictures on the walls. In other words, it's the kind of place you'l want to start enjoying whiskey season.
The Dead Rabbit actually opened in the Financial District in 2013 - but it's inspired by Old New York and is the sort of place place where you can throw a few back while thinking about what it would have been like to be a resident of New Amsterdam. We're pretty certain they drank a lot when New York was called New Amsterdam.
Believe it or not, Art Bar also has a fireplace. The velvet couches in the back are a good place to gather a group to drink for some early evening drinking in the West Village.
Union Hall is essentially a city in itself: there's a library-esque sofa-covered area with fireplaces, a bocce court, and a dance party/venue space downstairs. Come here for a night out in Park Slope.
Located at the edge of McCarren Park in an old body shop, Bar Matchless has a divey, biker vibe. It's just where you want to post up on a late fall day. If it's unseasonably warm? There's a great patio as well.
