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.
