Where To Have Drinks Around Flatiron

Need to drink in Flatiron? Here’s where to do it.

Statistically speaking, there’s a pretty good chance if you don’t already work in the Flatiron area, you will eventually have to organize some sort of drinks gathering in the Flatiron area. Whether you’re catching up one-on-one, have gotten stuck planning a coworker’s big group going away party, or just want to find a kind of crappy bar with cheap drinks, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve broken it up based on size of the group you’re rolling with. Also, for the sake of this exercise, we’ve extended the western boundary of Flatiron to 7th Avenue. Now go enjoy yourselves.

Casting directors looking for a real “speakeasy” for the date scene in your romantic comedy, check out Raines Law Room. They do the whole shebang: an unmarked door, dark and low ceilings, plush old-timey couches, and of course, fancy cocktails. Naturally, a good spot for a one-on-one.

The Clocktower, on the second floor of The Edition hotel, is a great new restaurant to have dinner - due in part to the fantastic room. But it’s also a nice spot for a drink - settle into the bar room on the early side.

The brewery-style rooftop of Eataly exists. Don’t forget it. Make a reservation for a small group to keep things stress- and wait-free.

A nice Southern-inspired restaurant, Bo’s is a solid choice for dinner, but we use it most for getting together with a few people in the nice downstairs bar room.

Flatiron Hall is run by the same people behind Houston Hall, the massive Soho beer garden that feels somewhere in between Oktoberfest and a tailgate on a Saturday. Think of this space, which looks like one of those nice old fraternity houses, as the more buttoned-up workday version. Get a stein of beer, naturally.

Yes, there’s a Barcade on 24th Street. Take the dev team here and emerge a hero.

The theme of the bar is quite literally “one star on Yelp.” The self-awareness sort of works perfectly: it’s non-descript, kind of cheap but not that cheap, and probably everyone is drinking a serviceable but watery whiskey ginger. Take your coworkers here and everyone will inevitably complain about it relentlessly, but will also end up here once a week.
