Everyone needs to know about a bar like Drop Off Service. A place where, even if it looks busy, you’ll always find a seat. Even at Happy Hour, which in the case of Drop Off Service lasts for several hours (3-8pm on weekdays, 1-8pm on weekends). This place is mostly a craft beer bar, but they also serve well drinks and some wine, and it’s a place you should keep in your back pocket for most situations involving a need for a casual drink.

A Korean-ish small plates spot in the East Village that’s affordable, tasty, and really fun.
There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.
