You’re on the Upper West Side, and you want to drink beer. But not a beer that all your friends have heard of. You want something obscure, because your horoscope recently told you to try new things. Go to George Keeley. From the outside, this place looks like a very normal pub - and on the inside it looks pretty normal, too. What sets George Keeley apart is the fact that they have a lot of different hard-to-find beers on tap. There are big flat-screen TVs behind the bar with lists of what they’re currently pouring - and there are also a few other TVs for watching sports.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
Caffè Storico is little more than a good bet for dinner in the neighborhood or some pre-gaming before you hit the planetarium. Who wants to get drunk and see a laser show?
Community Food & Juice
Community Food & Juice is one of the best brunch spots around Morningside Heights and Columbia University. Unfortunately, that's exactly when it's at its worst. Hit it any other time for best results.
