A review of Parish Cocktail Bar in Brooklyn's Park Slope

Located at 223 Seventh Avenue in Brooklyn’s Park Slope, Parish Cocktail bar is a long & narrow spot with the bar in the front half and a lounge with banquette seating in back half.  There’s a  small outdoor area beyond the lounge section.  Eight tap beers and a dozen or so wines by glass. Numerous house cocktails also available (at $11 a piece).  Two TVs and assorted meats & cheeses for food round out the offerings at Parish.

A review of The Harp Raw Bar & Grill in Manhattan's Midtown East

Located at 729 Third Avenue in Manhattan’s Midtown East, The Harp Raw Bar & Grill picks up where O’Neill’s (the former occupant) left off.  The Harp is a bi-level spot, with downstairs serving as the main bar area.  Second floor window offers a front row view of the happenings of Third avenue.  The Second Floor is also a dining area and a small lounge area (see photo below).  16 tap beers offered.  For food, in addition to its raw bar offerings, the menu leans toward upscale bar/bistro fare.  A good spot for lunch or after-work drinks.  And a great addition to the Midtown East NYC Irish pub crawl!
