The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog (30 Water St)
Consistently listed as one of the WORLD’S best bars, it features an Irish bar and a cocktail bar.
Jeremy’s Ale House (228 Front St)
This historic bar is known for serving its beer in 32-ounce Styrofoam cups. Enjoy.
Vintry Wine & Whiskey (57 Stone St)
A great place to meet a friend of colleague for Happy Hour.
Clinton Hall (90 Washington St & South Street Seaport)
With creative use of the space, they offer an outdoor beer garden year, round, as well as over 20 creative burgers, excellent soft pretzels, and enough games to make it perfect for both families and adults. They’ve also opened up an incredible Seaport location.
Watermark Bar (Pier 15 78 South St)
Featuring incredible 10,000 square foot venue at Pier 15, we love their views and the strong music programing they have going.
Fresh Salt (146 Beekman St)
Despite being at the Seaport, it’s off the main strip enough to be a quieter spot to grab a drink. We dig their happy hour every weeknight from 5 to 8pm, as well as their bar snacks.
Keg No. 229 (229 Front St)
We love a good DIY project, so it’s hard to resist their pour-your-own-beer station. You get a bracelet that measures how much you pour, and you pay at the end of the night by the ounce.
Garden Bar (Fulton & Front St)
The newest outdoor edition to the redone South Street Seaport offers outdoor drinking on the cobblestones.
The Growler Bites & Brews (55 Stone St)
This dog-themed casual drinks spot offers fun every day of the week, including their unlimited Bloody Mary bar on the weekends with brunch. With outdoor (dog friendly) seating in the warmer months, it’s a great casual spot for food and drinks (especially since they offer hot dogs from Mile End and deep-fried pickles). Don’t forget to check out Undergod, the secret cocktail bar downstairs featuring stellar mixology options.
Blue Ribbon Federal Grill (84 William St)
When catching up with friends, we prefer to sit at the bar and try the latest brews on tap or the cocktails; They’re organized by strength and disposition.
Nobu Downtown (195 Broadway)
The new Nobu’s massive upstairs bar area makes for a great upscale Happy Hour space. The bartenders are friendly, the drinks solid (try the lychee martini), and you can sometimes get some of their infamous dishes like the Yellowtail Jalapeno and Rock Shrimp Tempura that made Nobu famous.
