Reichenbach Hall is the gigantic Midtown beer hall that's serving an all-German beer selection, sausages, and pretzels that Warwick Davis could essentially live inside.
Alder is Wylie Dufresne's pub-inspired resto that's funneling his classic taste-bud-bending creations into a more accessible, slightly less-conceptual bar food-inspired menu in a woodsily modern East Village dwelling.
Taking its name from the two separate rooms that comprise it, Double Wide's a TX-inspired bar & kitchen from a team that's lived in the EVill for 10yrs, but has been "going out there even longer", experience that helped to shape the industrial farmhouse vibe thrown off by corrugated metal wrapping the bar and walls, window boxes filled with filament bulbs, a high fence ringing their outdoor patio, and a garage door hanging above the tables where you'll be parked.
Pok Pok's brother restaurant, WSL dishes Authentic Thai food and drinks in Brooklyn.
Inspired by mid-century supper clubs, The Butterfly has killer cocktails by Eben Freeman and a patty melt so good, you should drop what you're doing right now to go get it.
This Southwestern cantina/beer bar's got a great beer selection, which you can pair with their counter-service eats, like a pita grilled cheese or fish and chips, while playing a game of backgammon or chess.
This Williamsburg outpost serves up traditional Peruvian ceviche, creative pisco cocktails, and signature gravity-bong smoked oysters. The main focuses at this date spot, however, are the daily oyster happy hours and extensive South American wine selection.
The Levee's a dive bar that's got you covered, from highly addictive cheeseballs, to cheap beer & shots, to awesome throwback tunes.
Boston sports fans take refuge at this Hub-themed bar in the East Village, which, incidentally, sits next to one that's loyal to San Francisco, Finnerty's. Professor Thom's divey, unassuming storefront leads to an interior where tons of sports memorabilia (including a couple of Fenway seats) make the bar look as though it were plucked from Boylston Street. Standard pub fare like burgers, club sandwiches, and fish & chips are on offer, as are lobster night specials and of course, Harpoon brews all around.
