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. This place truly lives up to its reputation, with no signs of pretense, just a warm and cozy tavern where the drinks flow and good times roll. 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!

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.

Een East Village bijzonderheid dat voor het eerst zijn deuren opende in 1854, en de oudste bar in Manhatten is. McSorley's serveert twee soorten bieren: McSorley's Light en McSorley's Dark. Er ligt zaagsel op de vloer, een historische bric-à-brac, foto's en nieuwsberichten aan de muur. Doordeweeks is het een comfortabele plek om hun smaakvolle brouwsels te proberen. In het weekend is en een lange rij met toeristen en kinderen van de middelbare school. McSorley's liet geen vrouwen toe, tot de jaren 70 en zelfs tegenwoordig bestaat het publiek hoofdzakelijk uit mannen.
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.
