Located at 269 East Houston Street (at Suffolk Street) in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Suffolk Arms is a cocktail bar in a spot that has been several bars over the years (Local 269, Vasmay Lounge and Meow Mix were all previous tenants at this address). The décor has changed significantly since its previous incarnation. It has somewhat of a pub feel to it, even though the main liquid draw here is artisanal cocktails. It’s worth a visit, but we found the seating policy to be a little difficult. Based on our visit, there is no standing room allowed, so you probably don’t want to visit here in large groups. Also, we found the service to be rather slow.
