The Lately is right next door to the Dream Hotel in Chelsea, which means that it’s essentially in the Meatpacking District. For the location, however, it’s a pretty good bar. They make great cocktails, they serve some food, and it’s an attractive space. So if you work in the area, stop by for an early-evening drink. Or if you have to meet some friends around Meatpacking and they all want to go drink $20 vodka sodas at a club down the street, see if they’ll come here instead. There are a couple of couches, a few big booths, and a second floor where you can book a table in advance.

Socarrat Paella Bar
No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.
Sushi Seki Chelsea
The Chelsea Sushi Seki outpost is bigger and badder than the original. Aside from the decor differences, everything appears to be exactly the same.
Txikito has been doing solid business in Chelsea for several years, serving Basque-style tapas to people who are mostly on dates. How much you'll like it probably depends on how much you're looking to spend.

Hudson Malone is a rare Midtown East pub where you can eat good food and watch sports on TV at the very same time.
Not a place for normal dinner time. This is a place for drinking, and a dirty one at that. It just so happens that they serve amazing bar food that will save your life at 1:00am.
