Troy Liquor Bar gets pretty clubby once DJs start spinning, and at that point you may need to elbow past three rows of people to order at the bar (unless you have table service). But it’s actually a low-key spot to hang out earlier in the night. There are pool and foosball tables, and they offer Happy Hour everyday they're open (Weds-Sat) until 9pm.

Top of The Standard
Top of The Standard is pricey, but you’ve probably seen this cocktail bar in a movie or two, and the 18th-story view is one of the best in the city.
It is no understatement to say that Catch is the most over-the-top, ridiculous dining operation the Meatpacking District has ever seen. Thankfully though, the service is fantastic, and the food is pretty great as well, despite the absurdity of it all.
