We mostly appreciate Carragher’s because of its size. It’s a pub on 39th Street, and it has two big floors and rooftop. The rooftop isn’t very high, so there isn’t much of a view, but it’s great for when you want to drink outside with a small group. There’s also plenty of seating inside, so you shouldn’t have much trouble getting a table here. Sure, it looks more or less like a generic pub that hasn’t been renovated since the mid-’90s, but it’s a useful place to know about, and they serve slushy drinks.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.

Refinery Rooftop is a rooftop bar in Midtown that actually isn’t the worst. If you work in the area, it’s a good spot for drinks with coworkers.
Bo Peep is a piano bar in a Midtown basement. It looks like a speakeasy from the 1920′s, and it’s a great place for a relatively quiet drink.
