If there is one place in New York that does whiskey and pickle-back shots, it's gotta be Whiskey Tavern. Tucked amidst the baffling conundrum of Chinatown, this bar has been a local haunt for the after-work denizens and friendly folks of downtown. They pride themselves on an impressive drink menu with a notable beer selection, apart from the staple whiskeys and cocktails.

The setup itself is simple, with a wood and brick theme, background music, televisions and garden area. And if you're not that buzzed you could toil away the night with a game of Ultimate Jenga or Connect Four!
Apothèke is one of the many "speakeasy" type bars found throughout Manhattan.

This bar is manned by expert bartenders who sport white lab coats and dispense alcoholic "prescriptions" (as they call them) like the Mata Hari, Femme Fatale and Dr. Ruth, which are created with the Apothèke's house-blended absinthe and other elixirs.

C'est un point de repère du village de l'est qui s'est ouvert en 1854, ainsi que le bar le plus vieux de Manhattan. McSorley's propose deux genres de la bière : McSorley's Légère et McSorley's Brune. Il y a la sciure de bois par terre, et sur les murs vous verrez des photos, du bric-à-brac historiques, et des anciens articles de presse. Pendant la semaine c'est un endroit confortable où prendre un verre. Pendant le week-end, il y a une queue très longue des touristes et d'étudiants. McSorley's n'a pas permis l'entrée aux femmes jusqu'aux années 1970, et aujourd'hui il est toujours rempli essentiellement des hommes.
PDT (which stands for Please Don't Tell) is a "secret" bar on St. Mark's Place. A call from a phone booth in Crif Dogs (the adjacent restaurant) is the only way to get in. Once accepted, a secret door opens up in the phone booth, leading to PDT. It's not much of a secret anymore though, because the club is hugely popular. Once inside, you'll find a crowded bar area steeped in darkness. The inventive cocktail selection is superb and a major draw. If you're hungry you can also order from the Crif Dogs food menu, which gets delivered to the club via a small pass. A visit to PDT is quite an interesting experience indeed.

The menu features burgers, fries, sandwiches and salads.
