East Village

Nightlife

B-Bar

40 East 4th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.475.2220
http://www.bbarandgrill.com

Once an overcrowded hotspot, this bar is still very popular. The large outdoor patio sets the mood for a quiet conversation or a moonlit martini. The drinks and food aren't anything special, but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. The crowd is a broad mix from punk to yuppie.


 

Bar Veloce

175 Second Avenue
New York City, NY 10003
212.260.3200
http://www.barveloce.com

A small, mod interior is just the beginning of the story. It's all about the wines. There are over 30 to choose from. In addition there's a full menu of Mediterranean munchies if you're so inclined.


 

Gotham Bar & Grill

12 East 12th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.620.4020

The biggest problem here is how to dissect the beautifully sculpted towers of food without it landing on your lap. The answer is to dive in. As good as it looks, this place has been serving up skyscrapers of innovative cuisine since the mid-1980s. With an interesting menu, great service and a wonderful atmosphere, this restaurant remains at the top of its game.


 

KGB

85 East 4th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.505.3360
http://www.kgbbar.com/

This bar is known first and foremost as a literary haunt. Authors both established and aspiring congregate here en masse. There are many official readings by big names. There are many informal debates regarding the readers with big names.


 

Manitoba's

99 Avenue B
New York City, NY 10009
212.982.2511
http://www.manitobas.com

For a taste of the olden days of Alphabet City, this dive bar still thinks punk is in vogue. Which makes sense since it's owned by punk legend Dick Manitoba of the Dictators. The photos on the wall are a virtual who's who of the musical legends of days gone by. The beer is also good (and cheap). Just make sure you keep your comments to yourself if you don't like the music or you might just offend the guy who wrote it, sitting right next to you.


 

McSorley's

15 East 7th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.473.9148
http://www.mcsorleysnewyork.com

A New York tradition since the beginning of time, McSorley's is renowned for brewing its own beer. There are two varieties to choose from, light and dark. That's it. Some say this place is crowded simply because it always has been. Others swear it's a down-right requirement to drop in every now and again. Whatever your take on the subject, McSorley's is sure to leave its mark.


 

Niagara

112 Avenue A
New York City, NY 10009
212.420.9517
http://www.niagarabar.com

Stylish and crowded, many say this place epitomizes the new face of Alphabet city. The setting is comfortable and the drinks are fine. There's also a downstairs area should the bar get too packed. Even the music is better than average, although that might be due to the fact that it's owned by musicians Jesse Malin and Johnny T.


 

Nuyorican Poets Café

236 East Third Street
New York City, NY 10009
212.505.8183
http://www.nuyorican.org

This East Village institution has been around for over 25 years. Its influence on poetry and spoken works remains considerable. With a tradition of supporting both well-known poets and new talent, their open mic night is still insanely popular.


 

Webster Hall

125 East 11th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.353.1600
http://www.websterhall.com

This multi-level space has become the site for many a rock and alt-rock performance. Recent headliners have included the Hives, Bad Religion and Muse. There is a bar in the back of the room, a stage and not a whole lot else. It's all about the music here.
