Bar Nine suffers from a minor identity crisis. Weeknights, the space is full of midtown suits jonesing for happy hour; weekends, Fordham law students and neighborhood types lounge on velvet couches or gossip across the shiny copper-topped bar. During daylight hours, a giant TV and cheap draft Heineken render the bar more than sports-ready. The crowd may vary, but the place always offers juicy, sky-high burgers and potent drinks, and the atmosphere is always relaxed.
