The Woodstock is a big bar in Meatpacking with original Salvador Dali paintings hanging on the walls. But before you group it with other spots in the area where doormen keep lines out front even when it’s empty inside, we want you to know that this place is chilled out. You can wear sneakers to The Woodstock, eat Neapolitan pizza at communal tables, and play pool in the back. The whole space feels like a set out of That 70’s Show, including a cozy living room with leather couches and worn-in rugs. As the night goes on, the lights dim and the music gets louder, but this is still a fairly casual spot to drink cocktails (all $10) with a big group.
