The Dancer is a small, cash-only cocktail bar deep in the Lower East Side from the same people behind Eastwood. Along with a big, plush, red booth, there’s a bar with about 10 seats. They make a few house cocktails and serve bar snacks like chicken liver mousse and wasabi peas. It works for an after-dinner drink, or as a more low-key alternative to 169 Bar or Mr. Fong’s.

Dimes

Dimes is a good little LES restaurant, as long as you’re on a first name basis with the staff. If not, expect to be treated like the stranger you are.
