Jack and Fanny’s is a bar on the Upper East Side with a subtle ’70s theme, and it’s one of our favorite places to drink in the area. There are some couches up front, a bunch of booths to the side, and a big bocce ball court in the back. Sure, we hardly ever think to ourselves, “We’d like to play some bocce ball right now,” but it’s still nice to know it’s an option. So bring a date who likes to get competitive, or just come with some friends who appreciate a good bar. The cocktails are great, and there’s plenty of seating.

The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.
The Jeffrey is an Upper East Side East beer garden and espresso bar, with great bar snacks and excellent cocktails. Be happy you’ve heard of it.
Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
