Cafe Amrita is less than a block from Central and Morningside Park, and it’s a short walk from Columbia and Mt. Sinai. So whether you need a cocktail to help get you through Civilization And Its Discontents or need to commiserate about the Boards with your fellow residents, this is a great place to make it happen. They stay open till midnight every day, but it it’s best to work here during Happy Hour, when they have $3 beers, $4 well drinks, and $5 wines.
