Like most of the bars on the Lower East Side, Hill & Dale is calm during the week and nuts on the weekend. It’s a gastropub/lounge where you can take a date on a quieter night or bring a few friends on a Friday and hope to bump into a similar-sized group of people that you can buy drinks for (or vice versa). It’s a big space with couches in the back, some booths in the middle, and a pretty standard assortment of bar food. Fans of oysters will appreciate the happy hour.

What we have found at Blind Tiger is a New York City bar that actually has an extensive microwbrew selection AND excellent food. Unfortunately, the place gets very crowded at times.
Old Town Bar
Over a century of Big Apple history lies within these walls, as does a pretty excellent burger. Come have a beer and pretend your horse is outside.
Wilfie & Nell
Wilfie & Nell is, first and foremost, a place you come to drink, rather than a place you come to eat. Consider it an added bonus that the bar food you'll likely be eating while standing near a tiny ledge is pretty good.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
