Included In

Between the live music, oysters, and specialty cocktails, Bar Belly is a pretty ideal early-in-the-game date spot. The dark, narrow space on the Lower East Side has a cocktail and raw bar up front, along with a bunch of small tables past the musicians in the back. Besides oysters, which are $1 during Happy Hour, they also serve good small plates like lamb meatballs and octopus.
