New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. With a massive fireplace you can sit on (literally!—there are pillows) and a small outdoor smoker’s deck out back, this clandestine bar, next door to rocker dive Niagara and housed in the basement of East Village staple the Pizza Shop, is the kind of place you may run into Ryan Adams on a random Friday night. (Helps that his best friend, musician Jesse Malin, owns the joint.)
