Pubs & Bars In New York
New York City is a nightlife capital, with some of the best bars in the country clustered around bustling neighborhoods like the East Village and Williamsburg. Whether you favor craft brews or serious cocktails; abeer-and-shot special or a transporting glass of wine, NYC has a game-changing bar to slake your thirst. At last count, New York City has somewhere between 1500 – 1800 bars in operation at any given time. With statistics of that caliber, it’s incredibly difficult natch, pretty much impossible to declare top list of the best watering holes in the boroughs.
From dive bars like Bar 169 in Chinatown and American Trash on the Upper East Side, to swanky hotspots like Mulberry Project in Little Italy and The Wren on Bowery, provide you with a guiding light to explore a particular neighborhood by way of a well-respected bar that’s earned its stripes. While in no way inclusive of all of the bars deserving of this title, these stand out for their ability to hold a crowd, dazzle with delicious cocktails, or simply to keep entertained with bar games when grow tired of chatting with friends.
