    A sports bar with good drink specials and darts. It’s a great, laid-back bar to go to with friends for after-work drinks. Watch out for game nights as the place gets packed, though once the game is over, people leave pretty quickly.

    An underground bar with brick archways, cast-iron fixtures, and oriental rugs. It gets very packed on the weekend. The crowd is late 20s/early 30s.

    This is your typical college bar with dollar beer on Tuesday nights. If you want to get drunk on cheap beer, this is the place to do it.

    Famous, celebrity-prone, and not like anything you’ll ever find in Germany, the Standard’s beer garden is still a great place for drinks. The picnic tables allow you to talk to your friends or make some new ones.

    An old boat on the Hudson river, this bar is an after-work and happy hour staple of New Yorkers, especially during the summer when the boat teems with locals who come out for drinks, sun, and socializing.

    While not a traditional speakeasy (more of an old-time pub), they make excellent, excellent 19th-century drinks (they focus heavily on dark liquors). The darkwood paneling and staff dressed in 19th century outfits provide an authentic atmosphere.

    Walking down an unmarked alley, you enter a huge room with vintage art, furniture, and chandeliers. As jazz music plays most days of the week, you’ll find people swing dancing the night away. Moreover, the bar serves drinks from teacups.

    Average bar with reasonably priced drinks. There’s a lounge upstairs that can be rented out for parties. Later in the night the dance floor starts to get packed! This is a great event space. I’ve held many meet-ups and parties here.

    This sake bar in a basement serves hundreds of different kinds of sake (and some basic Japanese appetizers). It’s tiny, cozy, and a little too warm, but you know the large Japanese clientele means it’s good.

    The Rye House is perfect for anyone who loves dark alcohol. There are more than 200 bourbons, scotches, and whiskeys here. Hands down the best in the city.
