There are plenty of dive bars in Alphabet City, but the Garret isn’t one of them. So if you’re around Avenue A and you’re looking for a first-date spot or a place to get a good cocktail, come here.

Bobwhite’s ain’t fancy, but The Counter gets the job done right. The eat-in dining experience is not ideal, so it’s best to just call these guys and order your weight in fried chicken to go.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
Good Night Sonny
Good Night Sonny is a cocktail bar in a busy section of the East Village, and it's a surprisingly nice place to have a drink.
There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.
