Bar owner Michael Asch’s rap sheet is chock-full of pubs with punny names, like Stumble Inn, Off the Wagon and 13th Step. Like those ventures, his new addition, Hair of the Dog, is an upscale man-cave designed to lure bros and their adoring consorts. Lit by glowing globes, the venue features two bar counters, made from salvaged wood, where you can dig into burgers stuffed with jalapeños and cheese, or pulled-pork sliders. The draft menu is composed of old standbys like Coors and Bud, but count on Jameson shots as the crowd favorite here.

Not as insufferably bro-y as its brother bars elsewhere in the city (I’m looking at you, 13th Step.), Hair of the Dog is a solid go-to for NFL Sundays and most other major sporting events. I warmed to HoD initially thanks to the fact that they were one of the only Lower East Side bars open early enough for European soccer games and World Cup viewing last summer. It can get very crowded, especially on weekends, but the pitcher specials are hard to beat. For me, Hair of the Dog’s best draw is its super fun Lower East Side location.
