This shop/bar on the Lower East Side is a craft beer nerd’s dream (the walls are lined with fridges of six-packs), but it’s a fun place to hang even if you don’t know the difference between an I.P.A. and a Pilsner. We also appreciate any bar that takes its hygiene seriously – Top Hops marks each draft beer with the date that the line was last cleaned. Which basically makes us never want to drink draft beer anywhere else.

The Ten Bells
The Ten Bells is a beautifully laid out space with a nice bar, plenty of room for hanging, an incredible wine list made up entirely of organic and sustainable wines, and an oyster happy hour every damn day. But despite also having a large menu of mostly Spanish small plates, eating a full-blown meal here is unnecessary.
