Brother Jimmy's BBQ (CLOSED)
1485 2nd Ave ( between E 77th St & E 78th St )

Brother Jimmy's is a chain that doesn't feel like a chain. It feels like a neighborhood bar with a college atmosphere where you can enjoy watching sports, eating ribs and checking out cuties. The staff is always awesome!

Ulysses Folk House
95 Pearl St ( between William St & Broad St )

Ulysses is our favorite bar in the Financial District. Located on Stone St sets you in the middle of the after work action. They have a tasty selection of craft beers best enjoyed outside during the Summer but definitely a stop if you're in the area anytime of the year.

Down the Hatch
