Manhattan – Upper East Side
143 E 60th St between Lexington and Third Aves
Manhattan, NY 10022
This dingy dive is in peril, with a new development threatening to close its doors. Until then, the neon-lit institution holds on among the skyscrapers and Bloomies shoppers. Every breed of drinker can be found here--from shot-and-a-beer suits to old-time regulars. The booze is modest: There's plenty of liquor, and a selection of beers (Bud, Coors, Sam and Guinness). The bar also stocks a few bottles of wine, but you'd do well to stick to the basics--we assume they'd make a decent vinaigrette by now.
