Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We completely renovated our best bars in NYC list to reflect the way that people are actually imbibing this year, as well as the vision of our two new Food & Drink Editors. Our list spans craft beer bars and serious cocktail bars but it also takes into consideration, smaller less expensive destinations that you'll actually be able to hit up time and time again. We're also interested in looking at the ways that bars can be more sustainable, and the creative innovations that some bar owners are employing. Not to mention, we've added a cocktail bar that focuses entirely on non-alcoholic mixed drinks that places just as much focus on the craft as anywhere else. Also, who can forget the importance of bar snacks?
To narrow down the endless options, we’ve compiled this list of the 50 best bars in NYC right now. And if you are looking for more of the best, here are the best restaurants in NYC.
