This iconic restaurant has occupied West 52nd St since 1927, offering a tantalizing classic cocktail list and some of the best steaks (USDA prime dry-aged) in the city. Gallaghers started as a speakeasy before expanding into a Theater District steakhouse in the ‘30s. Its dry-aging process is on full display when you walk in -- a windowed view into its famed meat locker is the first thing you see -- and you’ll quickly notice the decor is heavy on nostalgia, thanks to countless black and white celebrity and sports star photos decking the walls.

Tequila enthusiasts and football fans alike are lured to Campeon, a Mexican mezcaleria-slash-sports bar off of Union Square Park. The neon-bedecked venue is organized around a long bar and is split between a front area with full-length banquettes and a more secluded back dining room. TVs line the entire space, meaning you don't have to huddle around a packed bar to see the winning field goal. Margaritas rule the drink menu while spicy guacamole, taquitos, and tacos are a welcome change from the mozzarella sticks and onion rings that make up standard bar food menus. That said, there are plenty of wings to go around.
