Close your eyes and picture your ideal neighborhood bar. If you just imagined a big place with TVs, board games, a couple of pinball machines, and a jukebox, you’re going to like E’s Bar in Morningside Heights. There’s a long bar up front and a big area in the back where you can sit at a table and order from an iPad, and it’s a great place for a beer and a burger with a group. There’s also a dart board for when you have a few drinks and feel like throwing projectiles. You’ll probably appreciate the original E’s Bar, too - it’s about 30 blocks south on the Upper West Side.
