There are few places in this city where you can start singing spontaneously and not be judged. One of these places is Marie’s. It’s a small, divey piano bar in a basement in the West Village where on any given night a pianist will be playing show tunes non-stop. Unless someone’s doing an obvious solo (a waitress, say), feel free to sing along. The regulars here have memorized a stupid number of songs, and, after watching them, you’ll want to as well.

There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for “Immaculate” Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.
What we have found at Blind Tiger is a New York City bar that actually has an extensive microwbrew selection AND excellent food. Unfortunately, the place gets very crowded at times.
