Manhattan – Meatpacking District
55 Little W. 12th St. (bet. Tenth Ave. and Washington St.)
Manhattan, NY 10014
Open continually since 2004, Brass Monkey has long been the casual cousin of the glam Meatpacking District renaissance. The large, bi-level space with a rooftop seating area is a casual establishment, with a relaxed atmosphere and no dress code (unlike many of its clubbier neighbors). The spot boasts a full lunch and dinner menu, as well as a bar that is open till the wee hours.
