Eastwood is a little beer-and-wine bar on the southernmost end of the Lower East Side, and it’s a nice place to hang out in the daytime. We wouldn’t bring a date here, but it’s good for a quiet beer with a friend. And if you’re hungry, these guys do a big menu of Middle Eastern bar food. So go ahead and have a pita or a lamb burger.

The Ten Bells
The Ten Bells is a beautifully laid out space with a nice bar, plenty of room for hanging, an incredible wine list made up entirely of organic and sustainable wines, and an oyster happy hour every damn day. But despite also having a large menu of mostly Spanish small plates, eating a full-blown meal here is unnecessary.
