A surfing-themed bar in the middle of Midtown makes zero sense, but we welcome any place in the area that’s not overrun by guys in Rangers jerseys or tourists in I Heart NY tee-shirts. This subterranean tiki bar in Hell’s Kitchen serves solid bar food and cocktails, and they do Happy Hour, including $3 beers, till 8pm.
