Sweet & Vicious is a classic, and it’s one of those places you’ll always want to have on hand when 12 of your friends suddenly materialize and want to get drinks somewhere downtown. It’s a straightforward bar right off Bowery in Nolita, with plenty of space out back. Get a “jargarita.” It’s a frozen margarita in a giant mason jar.
