Our NYC Bar of the Day: Bourbon Street Bar & Grille, located at 346 West 46th Street in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.
Save Water, Drink Beer!
Located at 190 West Fourth Street in Manhattan’s West Village, The Spaniard (though not really Spanish) is a Gastropub / Whiskey Bar from the same owners as nearby bar Wilfie & Nell. The Spaniard is set in the old Boxer’s space. While The Spaniard’s general layout is the same as Boxer’s, the dive-y feel of Boxer’s is long gone. Generous window seating for people watching at the corner of Barrow and West Fourth Streets. In addition to the notable Whiskey selection, the craft-beer includes several delicious options. For a bar snack, try the Buffalo duck wings! We look forward to returning here on our next NYC bar crawl through the neighborhood.
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Professor Thom’s, located at 219 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village.
NYC BunnyCon 2017 takes place on Saturday, April 8, starting at noon. More info here.
For a Scottish NYC bar crawl, we recommend the following Manhattan pubs: Caledonia, at 1609 Second Avenue; St. Andrew’s, at 140 W. 46th Street; Shoolbred’s, at 197 Second Avenue. In Brooklyn, visit The Craic at 488 Driggs Ave and Duke of Montrose at 47 5th Ave.
Located at 282 Hudson Street in (way) West Soho (or is it Hudson Square?), Local & Vine is a wine and beer bar that serves solely wine and beer produced in New York State. The space is rather small with a 8-seat bar and only a few lounge-like low lying tables. Local & Vine opens daily by 4pm with Happy Hour until 7pm and the spot is experimenting with weekday lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. While we hope Local & Vine is successful with its lunch hours, the space does feels more like an after-work/evening/late night spot rather than a day drinking spot. Either way, we look forward to returning to Local & Vine on our next NYC pub crawl through the neighborhood.
Located at 316 8th Avenue in Manhattan’s Chelsea, Chelsea Bell is a solid craft-beer, picking up where the (short-lived) World of Beer left off. The layout of Chelsea Bell is almost identical to that of World of Beer. Plenty of seating just after the entrance, with the bar located toward to back of the space. Over 30 mostly-quality tap beers are available, plus numerous more bottled beer options. Chelsea Bell opens for business daily Monday through Sunday by 10am. Numerous TVs are tuned to sports and Chelsea Bell is a good spot for watching overseas soccer. Add in the friendly staff and Chelsea Bell is a great stop for any Chelsea NYC craft-beer bar crawl.
