The Dead Poet review image

The Dead Poet

$$$$(212) 595-5670

The Dead Poet is really just a solid neighborhood bar. Isn’t the least bit fancy, but it also doesn’t smell bad, and they even have some books you can read while you drink. There are a couple of TVs for watching sports, and there are also both daytime and late-night Happy Hours. It’s about the size of a subway car, though, so don’t bring a big group.
