Remember how I said I wanted to try some new places around the city? Well, I just wanted to provide a quick update on some of the bars and restaurants I’ve finally got around to going to. Over the course of the past few weeks, I’ve slowly but surely trying new places and falling in love with them! Here’s my top 5:
Brazen Fox – Located on 3rd and 13th, this bar has great relaxed vibe. We sat upstairs on a beautiful New York evening and enjoyed the views of Third Avenue while we sipped away on their Cherub Cup and some craft beers. I also recommend their Pretzel Baton appetizer – it was delicious!
Niagara – Located on Avenue A and 7th, this East Village hang out is where my friends and I danced to some old school jams late into the night! A fun, eclectic crowd gathers in the back room to show off their coolest dance moves. Best bring your dancing shoes.
Whiskey Town – Located on 3rd St between 2nd and 3rd Ave, this dive bar is one of my favorite weekend spots. They play great music from the late 90’s and early 2000’s and have a Photo Booth in the back corner. My favorite part about this bar, however, is the great prices!
Phebe’s Tavern – Located on Bowery and 4th, this Irish bar and grill is one of the most crowded spots in the village. Phebe and I found this tavern our freshman year and vowed not to return until we turned 21 – and we didn’t until we celebrated our 21st there! They have a great menu as well – my Dad loves their Shepherds Pie!
Hair of the Dog – Located on Stanton and Orchard, this bar is part of the NYC Best Bar Family and one of my personal favorites. Though it is a bit of a trek from my apartment, this bar has great deals during the week and enough TVs to satisfy even your biggest sports fan.
