The Marlton Hotel is so low-key you might not even know it’s there. It’s a block up from Washington Square Park, and it isn’t the smallest hotel, but it blends in pretty well with its surroundings. The cocktail bar is just inside to the left, and it sort of feels like the Bowery Hotel if no one knew about the Bowery Hotel. Come by for a good drink near a fireplace. Bring a date, bring your parents, or hang out solo at the bar.

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.
Keens is a Midtown steakhouse with tons of history, but even if you don’t care about Albert Einstein’s smoking pipe, you’ll eat some great meat.
