Memorial Day weekend just may be our favorite weekend of the year here at Pub Crawl NYC. Sometimes it’s appropriate for a quick trip out of town; other times, it’s great to stick around town and go on a NYC pub crawl or three. As the weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer, the weather almost always delivers. It was on this weekend long ago that we participated in our very first bar crawl and we’ve been a big fan of bar crawls ever since! So, whether you’re staying in town or traveling for the long weekend, have a great time, stay safe and happy pub crawling!
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Mason Jar NYC, located at 43 East 30th Street in Manhattan’s Murray Hill.
Located at 596 Grand street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Starlight is another neighborhood bar for the strip of Grand Street that leads to the eastern edge of Williamsburg. Retro vibe at Starlight includes some wood paneling and glass lampshades. Seven tap beers plus another ten out of bottle/can. Limited full bar. A solid addition to any NYC pub crawl along the eastern half of Grand St.
Located at 295 Flatbush Ave on the Prospect Heights / Park Slope border, Rose’s is a spot from the same owners as the solid pizza place, Franny’s (in fact, 295 Flatbush was the original Franny’s location before it moved across the street). Limited food selection makes us believe this spot is more of a bar than a restaurant, even if the spot closes somewhat early for a bar (midnight or so on most nights). Four draught beers plus a full bar; food menu is mainly small plates, a burger and some sandwiches. Good spot and worth a visit in your next NYC pub crawl along Flatbush Ave.
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Lake Street, located at 706 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Louisiana joined the Union on April 30, 1812. For a Louisiana-focused NYC bar crawl, we suggest including Ninth Ward at 180 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village, Delta Grill at 700 Ninth Avenue and Bourbon Street Bar & Grill at 346 W. 46th Street; both in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.
