“Located across the street from the Puck Building, this welcoming Irish pub has become a popular destination for lower Broadway’s professionals. Although there are 25 different beers on tap and 60 by the bottle at this airy tri-level pub, they boast that their Kilkenny cooling system makes their Guinness taste almost as good as it does on the Emerald Isle. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy traditional Irish fare of stews, pies, skewers, fish & chips, and more.”
281 Lafayette St.
Live jazz starts at 9 p.m.
Subway: Prince Street (N, R) or Broadway-Lafayette Street (B, D, F, M)
“Pravda is a legendary, Russian-inspired American speakeasy and a Soho gem. It is one of New York City’s best hotspots for Russian snacks, caviar, martinis, and an extensive choice of vodkas. The staircase opens into a cavernous subterranean brasserie that recalls a Cold War–era movie set. It’s a unique experience.”
Reservations: Open table reservations begin Oct. 20. Phone reservations begin Oct. 20, (212) 226-4944.
332 Lafayette St.
Subway: 6 at Bleecker Street; B, D, F, M at Broadway-Lafayette Street
“A richly appointed 1940s-style cocktail lounge, with mahogany walls, leather chairs, spiffy barmen, and moody lighting, Temple Bar offers a place for quiet conversation and evokes the clubby days of yore when wealth could buy a privileged isolation. Nowadays, anybody can enjoy the hedonistic sound of champagne corks popping, the list of 40 vodkas, and the martinis prepared with meticulous care. Temple also offers a small list of…appetizers, should the mood strike.”
