Sometimes you just need a regular bar. A place where you can fit a few of you, for a last-minute hang, where some people can drink wine and some people can have cocktails and others can have beer. It sounds like a simple idea, but the regular bar is a rarity. Drexler’s is one of them, and it’s great for work drinks, friend group drinks, first date drinks - most regular situations. And probably some irregular ones too.

Narcissa is an American spot in the Standard East Village with a space you’ll want to hang out in, but food we can’t really recommend.
Virginia’s is a nice date night spot on Avenue C where you’ll find one of the best burgers in the city.
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.
Suggested by our writers
Kingston Hall is a vaguely Caribbean-themed bar in the East Village with pool tables, an indoor/outdoor patio, and a decent selection of bar food.
