L.I.C. Bar is a casual spot to get cheap Happy Hour drinks and watch sports on TV, but the real selling point here is the back garden enclosed by an ivy-covered brick wall. It’s convenient to the subway and only a few blocks from MoMA PS1 - plus, it’s rare that all the tables here are taken, even when there’s live music on the weekends.
