Botanica is a dive in Soho, and it’s the kind of place where you bring a group of friends or coworkers when all you want to do is drink something cheap in a room that gets very little natural light. There’s a great Happy Hour until 8pm daily with $5 wine and well drinks - and seeing as how everyone seems to know this, it can be hard to find a seat here.

Smile To Go
The crowd at Smile To Go is trendy, but the food isn't. The salads, soups, and sandwiches are simple, fresh, and some of our favorite in Soho.
Omen Azen is an affordable neighborhood Japanese spot in Soho where you can eat something kind-of-healthy and maybe see a famous person.
Papatzul seems to be just more middle-of-the road Mexican that pairs acceptably with strong margaritas. It’s the kind of place where you have to yell at the person sitting across from you, and should probably order everything the moment you see your server because you might not see him again for a while.

Spring Lounge is a very old dive in Soho where you can (and should) drink cheaply and enjoy the (bad) smell.
