A review of Bar Gonzo in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen

Located at 515 Ninth Avenue at the southern edge of Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen, Bar Gonzo is a bi-level spot connected to Cassa Times Square Hotel (a smidge too far west and south to be a “Times Square” hotel, we think).  The ground level has a small bar and seating area.  The second floor bar area looks west and is significantly larger.  It’s an enclosed spot that (we expect) will have open windows once the weather warms up.  There’s a Hunter S. Thompson theme going on here.  Stop in here on your next Ninth Avenue NYC bar crawl.

East Village NYC Cocktail crawl?

We came across a story on supercall.com concerning a cocktail bar crawl in NYC.  Working from west to east, their route of the recommended NYC cocktail bar crawl targets nine spots in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, East Village and Alphabet City.  Over the course of numerous years of NYC pub crawling, we’ve visited all nine spots on this route at least once.  We think the route and the bars that Supercall picked are solid, but, due to opening/closing times of each spot, it’s rather unlikely that you can reach all nine spots in one day.  Supercall acknowledges such and suggests skipping a spot or two.  We look forward to reviewing Supercall’s next suggested NYC bar crawl route.
