Like most of the bars on the Lower East Side, Hill & Dale is calm during the week and nuts on the weekend. It’s a gastropub/lounge where you can take a date on a quieter night or bring a few friends on a Friday and hope to bump into a similar-sized group of people that you can buy drinks for (or vice versa). It’s a big space with couches in the back, some booths in the middle, and a pretty standard assortment of bar food. Fans of oysters will appreciate the happy hour.
Hill & Dale is permanently closed.

Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
Excuse My French
A funny little French tapas bar on the Lower East Side, with some really tasty food.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
Looking for a good place to post up for a night of game watching, beer drinking, and good grubbing? Reservoir is the place to do it. Underrated bar food.
Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.

If you absolutely want to go drink at a speakeasy, Attaboy (on the Lower East Side) is one of the best options.
Kind Regards is a bi-level LES bar where you can actually sit and have a conversation. Unless it’s the weekend - in which case it will be crowded.
