Hartley’s is a very nice Irish pub in Clinton Hill, and it’s the sort of place where the bartender will know half the people drinking at any given time. Mostly that’s because it’s tiny - but it’s also very much a neighborhood spot. It’s on the first floor of a small brick apartment building, and if you spend time in the area, it should be your go-to spot for a quiet beer with a friend. There’s also some food like soda bread and beef stew made with Guinness, in case you’d like to pretend you’re on a culinary tour of Ireland.

Good Night Sonny
Good Night Sonny is a cocktail bar in a busy section of the East Village, and it's a surprisingly nice place to have a drink.
For a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking.

Hotel Delmano is probably the best date spot in Williamsburg. It’s dark, cozy, and feels like an ocean liner that sank a long time ago.
Doris is where you go in Bed-Stuy when you want to meet people. Those people might not be sober, but, oh look, there's a disco ball.
