Cubby Hole is right at the end of my block, and I have to actually be careful NOT to just pop in every other night when I get off work late and am walking my dog. The vibe is always extremely high-spirited, the people know...More

Pretty decent. Good prices during happy hour and the bartender was nice and attentive. My friends and I stayed a while. Word of advice, don't waste your money on the jukebox. The staff (or quite possibly the owner) keeps jamming up the jukebox with their...More

Trendy, busy and quite eclectic. Mid Town bar in New York popular with the Gay community, it's really tiny so can get quite crowded in the evening especially on weekends. Great music, drinks are reasonably priced. Good service.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
