Manhattan – SoHo
17 Thompson St at Grand St
Manhattan, NY 10013
Though it's named for the William S. Burroughs novel, this haunt ain't so difficult to read. The dark lounge no longer attracts crowds with its specialty martinis (old news), but it's roomy and it's close to subways. On Friday and Saturday nights, DJs spin a mix of '70s and '80s, hip-hop and R&B. Weeknight happy hour runs until 9pm.
