The Third Man


Located in Alphabet City, you’ll find, cocktail bar, The Third Man.


This bar comes to us from the same owners of Austrian restaurant, Edi & The Wolf. With a serious focus on cocktails, this bar has a really sophisticated aesthetic and warm atmosphere with its exposed brick walls, and unique and interesting (and, sorry, but slightly questionably shaped) blown glass lighting fixtures.


For my beverage, I had the Harry Lime (mezcal, green chartreuse, maraschino, lime). I really enjoyed this drink. It was potent, slightly smoky, and had the perfect amount of sweetness.

Tom and Jerry’s


Happy Hour is a term that’s been diluted, especially in NYC. Instead of a drink special, it’s just become a time to start drinking early. But, fear not, there are still places around town where you can snag yourself some HH specials. Tom and Jerry’s is a great dive bar in NoHo where you can grab $5 drinks.


Beer, wine and well drinks are all included in their HH, but you can also check out their wall menu full of fun and tasty cocktails and martinis. 


Tables are a hot commodity there, so get there early if you want to get one, or, just awkwardly hover over people who look like they’re about to finish up soon so you can scoop theirs up. The walls are covered with moose and other wild life heads. Here’s the big guy above our table. 


I went for one of my favorite beverages, a Jalapeño Margarita. And, it was a good one.
