A review of The Confession Box on Manhattan’s Upper East Side

Located at 304 East 78th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, The Confession Box is a neighborhood bar just east of the intersection of 78th Street and Second Avenue.  With two separate bar areas, The Confession Box is more spacious than it appears from just outside its front entrance.   Along with a friendly staff, the spot offers ten tap beers and the food menu is a mix of Bar and bistro fare.  Add The Confession Box to your next Second Avenue UES NYC bar crawl.

New Manhattan bar openings we hope to visit soon

As usual, there are numerous bars opening up all around NYC’s five boroughs.  Some Manhattan spots that we look forward to including on some of our near future NYC bar crawls include Caledonia, Bar Fortuna and Good Story.  Caledonia is a Scottish whiskey-focused spot, located at 424 Amsterdam Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.  This is the sister spot to the Caledonia on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.  Bar Fortuna is another fancy cocktail / wine bar for the Greenwich Village neighborhood, located on the second floor above the restaurant Casa Apicii at 62 West 9th Street.  Lastly, Good Story is a rooftop spot atop the Arlo Hotel at 231 Hudson Street in west Soho.  After we hit these spots, we will provide brief reviews on them in this space.
