Bar in Upper West Side & Central Park

This buzzing drinking den features a live band every night on the front-room stage, though decibel levels are low enough that your ears won't bleed. The back room is band-free; for those who prefer a little action, there's a billiard table.

Red walls and refreshing drinks (passion fruit mojitos, agave-nectar margaritas) add a little flair, and the mini cheeseburgers are a perfect bar snack.
