A Lower East Side institution for a damn good reason. One of the best happy hours in the city and delicious snacks including dumplings and po boys go along with the New Orleans vibe. It's the type of place that you walk in and a few hours go by before you even know it because the atmosphere is so fun... don't forget to scope the leopard print pool table in the back.
The Lower East Side, or LES, is known for its more affordable walk-ups, lively atmosphere and eclectic vibe. It’s a nightlife destination with its many bars, clubs, and music venues, and the party often continues late into the night (or early morning) and pours out into the packed streets. Plan to walk or take a cab into this neighborhood, as there aren’t many mass transit options that stop here. The LES also offers a vibrant art scene in its hundreds of gallery offerings. There are also a variety of guided tours available at the Tenement Museum, and delicious food hot spots like Russ and Daughters, Ivan Ramen, and Katz’s Delicatessen. Don’t miss a scenic walk down the path bordering the East River for stunning views of the water and Williamsburg bridge.
