Red Hook
This unassuming wharfside tavern has been passed down in the Balzano family since 1890. On weekends, the bar buzzes with middle-aged and new-generation bohemians (the latter distinguished by their PBR cans), and the odd salty dog (canines, not sailors). Despite the nautical feel, you’re more likely to hear bossa nova or bluegrass than sea chanties warbling from the speakers.

This is hands down my favorite bar in New York. really chill, with an old-world vibe, nice staff and really solid live tunes some nights. So glad it's still going strong!
