What goes hand-in-hand with great eateries? Great bars of course. Any discussion of East Village bars has to start with Death & Co., one of the area’s first “speakeasies,” offering inventive, award-winning cocktails that draw people from all over. Another must-mention is McSorley’s Old Ale House, operating since the Franklin Pierce administration (that’s right, since 1854). This traditional Irish pub hasn’t changed much in the last 150+ years, offering beer lovers the most basic (yet satisfying) of choices: Dark Ale and Light Ale. Honorable mentions include Pouring Ribbons, located just one block from StuyTown Apartments and serving outstanding craft cocktails, Mayahuel, a tequila and mescal haven, d.b.a., a beer lovers mecca, and PDT (Please Don’t Tell), letting city dwellers feel like they’re enjoying a drink in a secret hunting lodge (the entrance is through a phone booth and the walls adorned with taxidermy animals). PDT is as about as close you can get to the real Prohibition-era experience.
For entertainment, there are a handful of movie theaters and other entertainment venues within close proximity. Venues include the Public Theater, Players Theater, The Skirball Center For The Performing Arts, and the IFC Center for an array of independent films, plays, and original entertainment.

There’s more to the East Village than restaurants and bars though. Check out Tompkin’s Square Park and rub elbows with locals among basketball and handball courts, open swaths of grass for sunbathing, and more. Visit St. Mark’s place for a bit of the old-school feel, when the East Village was home to misfits of all kinds, where you can still find tattoo parlors and cultural touchpoints like the spot Led Zeppelin took the cover photo for Physical Graffiti. Independent theaters still abound, most notably The Public Theater famous for introducing Hamilton to an unsuspecting city.
