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.

Saxon + Parole

A sleepy-looking Vietnamese restaurant in the East Village that deserves your attention.
High quality East Village omakase sushi for under $100, with a side of club music if you come on the weekend.

Not a place for normal dinner time. This is a place for drinking, and a dirty one at that. It just so happens that they serve amazing bar food that will save your life at 1:00am.
2nd Floor Bar & Essen
2nd Floor Bar & Essen is a semi-hidden bar above 2nd Ave Deli on the Upper East Side. It’s perfect for date night, and the food is great.

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.
