Holiday Cocktail Lounge has been around for a very long time, and presently it's something between a cocktail lounge and a dive bar. It works perfectly for the area. When you’re drinking on St. Mark’s, you want your bar to be a little grungy. This place is dark, it has throw-back vibes, they serve a small menu of pretty-good bar food, and the cocktails are great. Plan your next low-key birthday here.

A legendary East Village Italian restaurant that we have decided we can now only visit when nobody else will be eating there. Like at 3pm on a Tuesday.

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.
