This is the place that Tom Cruise was dreaming about in Cocktail. The space is huge, with a ton of bar seats, small tables up front, and larger, more private booths in the back. There’s a large selection of draft beers, cocktails, and wine, and a full menu if you decide you’ve got time for more than just a drink. The crowd is mostly made up of the suits-at-work contingency. It can get crowded quickly after work - so much so that finding a single spot at the bar gets tough - so make a reservation if you want to be sure you’ll get a seat. This place is so inviting that you may even work up the courage to do something that hasn’t been done since 1997, and actually talk to the stranger sitting next to you at the bar.

Leo’s Oyster Bar involves pricey, but tasty seafood in an ’80s power yacht come to life. Obviously it’s in the Financial District.
