Grabbing a drink around Times Square doesn't have to mean deciding between tall boys at TGI Fridays and $24 cocktails at a hotel bar. The Long Room is only a couple blocks from where tourists are paying money to take pictures with a guy still wearing his $29 Batman outfit from Halloween, but it’s a low-key spot where you’re more likely to see after-work crowds than families wearing matching I Heart NY shirts. They have a lot of beers on tap and a big whiskey selection, which you can drink at the long, narrow bar up front or on leather couches or communal tables in the large, loungey space in the back.
