3. Gallaghers Steakhouse 228 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019 (Midtown)

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.

10. Campeon 9 E 16th St, New York, NY 10003 (Union Square)

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.
