You shouldn’t go too far out of your way to drink at Connie Cocktail Lounge. We don’t mean that as an insult - it’s just that Connie is at JFK. It’s in a vintage plane on the tarmac at the TWA terminal, and if you’re looking to kill some time because your flight got delayed several hours, it’s a great place to hang out. The interior of the plane looks like it’s stuck in the year 1961, there are some snacks like meat and cheese, and the cocktails are actually pretty good. Hands down, it’s the best bar at JFK - which isn’t really saying a lot, but you should still check it out.

The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.
Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
Karasu is a Japanese speakeasy/izakaya you find by going through the back door of Walter’s in Fort Greene. Go for cocktails and fried chicken.
Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
