New York City is definitely not a “one bar fits all” metropolis. The nightlife options in New York are diverse and virtually limitless, catering to everyone from “thrifty drinkers” to “cocktail connoisseurs.”
Here are my NYC Summer 2017 top picks for bar partying.
Best Dive Bar
The only thing better than shots is themed shots. Try ordering Barcelona Bar‘s famous Harry Potter Shots and not only will you watch them burst into flames, but you’ll also get to watch the bartender make them while wearing a Gryffindor house scarf. If you’re not a Harry Potter fan, there are other shot options like Return of the King but be prepared to plop on a crown before chugging your shot from a goblet. If you’re more of a beer fan, try to make it to Barcelona Bar before 7 PM on any weekday and enjoy $3 drafts.
Honorable Mention: Bar None
