Good Night Sonny is a cocktail bar in the East Village, and it’s perfect for when you need a nice place to meet up near St. Mark’s. Bars in that area tend to be divey or touristy, but this one isn’t either. It’s just one long room with plenty of windows, a few little tables, and a big bar to sit at. At night, it gets a little more intimate, and you could definitely get away with bringing a date here. And if you get hungry, you could even eat dinner at Good Night Sonny. They do oysters, sandwiches, and small plates like steak tartare.

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.
