People drink cocktails out of coconuts at this Caribbean-themed spot in the East Village, but Kingston Hall is actually a very low-key bar. Inside, the dark space has plenty of seating, but we like it best on the patio during Happy Hour (two-for-one drinks till 8pm). They also serve bar food, like Jamaican beef patties and jerk chicken wings.

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.
