Black and White is an all-purpose bar. Come here with a date, or come with a bunch of friends. It’s in a basement near Union Square, and the lack of natural light encourages intimacy. The booths in the back are perfect for an all-night group hang, and the music is consistently good. It isn’t especially trendy, but that’s a good thing. Go on a slow night and have it all to yourself, or go on a weekend and enjoy the house-party vibes. Other bars in the area have multiple televisions and extensive cocktail lists, but Black and White has soul. And that’s harder to find.
