Nolita/Soho joint at the corner of Mulberry that has been around since the 1920ís...or forever, basically. Features a regular crowd of firemen from down the block as well and people off the SoHo shopping circuit .Nice big giant wraparound windows make it a great daytime place if youíre in the neighborhood. Usually 7-8 craft brews on draft along with the usual suspects. Pretty low price point, especially for the area.

A bit of a dive and a place I frequented often in my early years in NYC. Decent tap selection and can get very crowded at peak hours. A good option to stop by for a quick beer of youíre in the neighborhood, but not a destination bar. Prices and service are decent.

Opens 8 am. That was the only reason for me to visit when wandering around in Little Italy and Chinatown. Intentional rude service (I guess that was the catch). Still it made me a bit uncomfortable. Decent selection of draught beers.

A divey little place that reminds me of Pony Bar but with 20 years of wear and tear on it. Has a very worn in feel. Bright and airy though. Very reasonably priced with a decent selection of craft stuff. Gets very busy whenever thereís a game on (even though itís not really a sports bar at all) but seems to settle down a bit in the mid to late afternoon. If youíre stuck shopping with your wife in SoHo, this is a great refuge to grab a couple of pints.
