There are two locations of Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen in the city. One’s in Chelsea, and the other is in the East Village - and, while the one in the East Village is technically almost the worst, we actually like the one Chelsea. It’s a little smaller, and it feels more like a real neighborhood spot. It’s also nice enough for date (if you grab a table in the back), and it opens at 11am every day. Plus, you’ll always find a lot of good beers on tap here, there’s a decent menu of bar foods, and this place is cleaner and nicer than your average pub.

Socarrat Paella Bar
No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.

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.
The Tippler is a big bar beneath Chelsea Market, and it’s the sort of place where you’ll listen to top 40 and talk to a guy in Vineyard Vines.
