We know, we know. Everyone just wants it to be Christmas already.
But the vast expanse of month between Halloween and your Thanksgiving vacation will be a little easier to bear once you start exploring this list of some of the city's most interesting places to get yo' fall drank on!
You'll have no excuses to stay in now! Check out these fly bars:
1. The Lobby, Diego and The Roof at Public Hotels (215 Chrystie Street)
It’s one location and three amazing places to drink at Ian Schrager’s new and trending Public Hotels in Soho! Start off your night with a subdued cocktail in the lobby, ascend to imbibe and grab a bite at the intimate Diego.
If you really want to get your party on, head up to The Roof for some jaw-dropping panoramic views and dance to music by guest DJs from around the world. You've got a jam-packed evening in store!
2. Air’s Champagne Parlor (127 MacDougal Street)
Looking for something classier than the usual? Celebrating a fall triumph perhaps? Then it might be time to break out the bubbly at Air’s Champagne Parlor in Greenwich Village!
Grab a bottle or glass of one of over 100 varieties of the stuff and pair with an upscale app like oysters, charcuterie, or caviar. And if you want a taste of the good life without breaking the bank, you can join them from 5-7 p.m. every day for a special parlor hour and enjoy 3 glasses of a daily selection and snacks for only 30 bucks a piece! Score!
3. Arthur’s Tavern (57 Grove Street)
Ready for a blast from the past? This underrated West Village spot has been alive and kicking since 1937! Compared by one reviewer to the bar in Star Wars, this venue’s quirky décor, eclectic crowd and dependable menu of cocktails and light bites is sure to satisfy.
But the highlight here is their nightly jazz line up! You don’t even need to pay a cover charge to see talented musicians like Eri Yamamoto, Sweet Georgia Brown and Eve Silber strutting their talented stuff.
4. The Ship NYC (158 Lafayette Street)
Looking for something a little more subdued this fall? Head downstairs on Lafayette Street into this intimate “strictly seated cocktail lounge,” ideal for small groups of 6 persons or less.
Grab a classy glass of wine or innovative cocktail while you take in the sleek atmosphere and snack on awesome bites like Kalbi Sliders or Citric Ceviche—you can even finish off your night with some green apple crème brulee!
5. Greenwood Park (555 7th Avenue)
There's nothing like wandering Park Slope in autumn. The interior of this former gas station is decorated with a "tree" of liquor bottles, but the highlight is a huge outdoor patio complete with bocce ball courts and a DJ set up perfect for enjoying the fall ambiance.
They also feature an extensive wine list, over 60 beer tap lines, delicious cocktails and frozen drinks, daily deals and happy hours, and a varied menu featuring bites a cut above the usual bar fare.
6. The Late Late (159 East Houston Street)
Named after the world’s longest-running and once controversial TV talk show from Ireland, this hip Houston Street, Irish-inspired spot aims to be a cut above the stereotypical “pub” commonly associated with the culture. Even if all you order is a Guinness, you’ll get it served in a crystal goblet and with a spring of mint!
The venue also features live DJs on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays, along with a weekly Wednesday open mic night. Stop by for a brew, a bite, or a cocktail and if you make it before 8 p.m., you can even nab a $10 burger and beer!
7. Sake Bar Hagi (152 West 49th Street)
In the mood for something different this fall? Time to check out this underground midtown Japanese drinking den!
Nosh on some incredible Japanese food like authentic Yakitori, spunky sashimi, and good ol' edamame as you order up a bottle or glass of one of their primo Sakes or tasty plum wines. Whether you like it cold or hot, sweet or dry, they’ve gotchu covered.
8. Bookmarks (299 Madison Avenue)
Come for the classy literary name, and stay for the amazing 14th-floor terrace views, the beautiful garden atmosphere, and the classy literary cocktails!
Try a “Tequila Mockingbird,” a “Dante’s Inferno,” or even an “F. Scott Fitzgerald.” When it gets colder, you might also want to warm up with a tasty “Hot and Smokey Cider” or a rum-and-Kahlua “Like Water For Chocolate."
Round out your night with a delicious flatbread pizza or some tasty roast beef sliders. It’s also only a stone’s throw from Grand Central if you’re like us and always running a few minutes late for your train!
9. Three’s Brewing (333 Douglas Street)
This Brooklyn brewery’s stated aim is making beer that’s enjoyable, not just interesting. But with tasty IPAs boasting names like “Constant Disappointment” and “Unreliable Narrator,” it seems as if they’ve managed to do both!
Their Douglas Street location boasts an expansive outdoor patio along with a spiffy indoor space. And with a rotating menu of food and coffee available from partners The Meat Hook and Ninth Street Espresso, even your sober bud is sure to have a great time by your side.
10. Brooklyn Barge (3 Milton Street)
Founded by two former sea captains who wanted to bring some love to New York’s under appreciated coastline, this bar and restaurant can be found floating on the East River.
Enjoy a “Barge Brew,” “Tugboat Nachos,” or a “Kayak Colada” as you take in the Manhattan skyline and bounce up and down with the waves.The barge doesn’t actually move once it's arrived at its seasonal home, so don’t worry about going too far from shore—unless we’re talking sobriety levels![Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
