The lure of this Harlem spot is its rich history: The Zebra Room tucked in back, decorated with the requisite animal-print wallpaper, hosts live jazz and blues. At the main bar—a 1939 wooden Art Deco masterpiece—regulars sip High Lifes and groove to ’70s hits. On weekend nights, take a pass; tourists come out in droves.
