The Garret East @ Borrachito

$$$$(212) 228-6231
Hours:TUESDAY5:00PM to 3:00AM

There are plenty of dive bars in Alphabet City, but the Garret isn’t one of them. So if you’re around Avenue A and you’re looking for a first-date spot or a place to get a good cocktail, come here. It’s nice inside, but it isn’t uptight, and it feels like the little bar/lounge area of a restaurant that you’d find on the roof of some hotel.

Death & Co

Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.

The Garret

There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.
