New York City is notorious for its energetic nightlife scene. Lawyers, accountants, construction workers, and travelers all meet in their favorite bars, pubs or clubs. CEOs and simple workers share beers and titles become irrelevant. They laugh, they cry, they enjoy freedom and independence. There are countless bars to try in NYC and each person develops relationships with certain bars. Here are some of the known (and lesser known) bars for those of you traveling in New York City this summer:
Fiesta – El Rio Grande
Known for its Killer Margaritas, the Rio is a great bar-restaurant with excellent Mexican style food, and even better drinks. I’ve personally visited the Rio several times and always had the time of my life. The prices are fair and crowd is business savvy and relatively young. El Rio Grande – 160 E 38th St, New York, NY 10016
Fancy People – 230 Fifth
A rooftop bar-restaurant made especially for travelers. Breathtaking view and if you are on time, you might get a glance at a New York sunset. The food is American style and the drink prices seem up to par for Manhattan (in other words, you’ll probably find them slightly overpriced). It is always a great to have a nighttime view of NYC’s skyscrapers, it is even greater with a fancy drink in your hand. 230 Fifth – 230 5th Ave New York, NY 10001.
Lucky Charms – Molly’s
Your local Irish pub. If you have been to a good Irish pub before, you know exactly what to expect. Wooden stools, fireplace, and dark walls, The Molly’s is a place to sit down with friends and drink up! The Beer pours like water and the Shepherd’s pie is the perfect munch. Molly’s – 287 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10010.
