East Village
You won't find soap-making tutorials, underground brawls or—alas—Brad Pitt at this Fight Club–themed East Village bar. The cinematic homage is more subtle: Along with red-leather booths and a lacquered-wood bar, a large mural decorates the space, depicting the film's antihero, Tyler Durden, alongside Lady Justice and Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve. Cocktails are named with the film in mind: The Jack's Revenge mixes whiskey, muddled cucumber and mint leaves, while the rum-based Raymond K. Hessel comprises muddled red peppers, ginger syrup and red wine. Beer drinkers can find 12 brews on tap (Captain Lawrence IPA, Kelso Pilsner), with another dozen by the bottle.

This place has a cheap happy hour. Went to catch the Met's game on a random friday bar tender Erik was drinking with me and my buddies. If you want a bar to be that regular and feel local this place is legit. 

Tyler Durden

You may not find Brad Pitt, but you will find Jake and his famous "Jake's lemonade". If you want a touch of something different I highly recommend the place. Perhaps the coolest bar in the east village.
