Union Square

E 16th St., New York, NY 10003
73 reviews

Unless I'm hitting the Greenmarket, this is more of a place I find myself passing through than an end destination. But it's an exciting spot, with a deliciously diverse blend of people. The recipe for a Union Square crowd is 2 cups of tourists, 1 heaping tablespoon of street performers, 1/2 cup panhandlers, a dash of skateboarding teenagers (baked), and ...

    This basement sake bar may seem like a dive from the street, but once inside you will find a tightly packed, upbeat community of businessmen and groups of friends. A no-frills approach fits Decibel perfectly, and you will not be disappointed by their wide range of sake and food selections. But remember, watch your elbows, as you will probably be ...

    Dean & DeLuca Soho Store

    0.9 mi from Union Square
    8 reviews

    Hard not to like it but definitely overrated. Dean & Deluca is very commercial and they've lost a bit of their edge. Yes, they have great high-end gourmet products but the store just isn't as unique as it once was. Much of what you will find here can be found elsewhere -- often at a lower price. The Soho store ...

    Bathtub Gin

    Sometimes you do what you have to do, including sitting in a bathtub in the middle of a fab speakeasy. Great old world decor and a good selection of gin cocktails. Great fries, too!

    Loved The Tippler! Cocktails are great - I had the Derek Smalls and the Dizzy Oaxacan and really enjoyed both. I also had the soft pretzel with assortment of mustards which was mouth-wateringly good - but watch out, one of the mustards REALLY has a kick. They atmosphere is really nice - interesting and dark. They keep vintage books scattered ...

    Great wine bar. Nice selection, and the staff here are very personable and friendly. Comfortable atmosphere, casual and fun - didn't experience the attitude we felt at some other wine bars in town. Now, it can get crowded here at night, so this is not a place for claustrophobes, but the staff do a very good job at trying to ...

    Raines Law Room has all the allure present in other lounges without the gimmicks of passwords and other methods of obscurity easily circumvented by simply performing a search on Google. The lounge is dimly lit with curtains to provide a level of separation from its busy nature. Each section can summon service by tugging on a light located by the ...

    Live jazz, ping pong, shuffle board, pool... You can pretty much spend you night the way you like. A younger crowd, gets pretty busy, but if you want to grab a group of people and have a fun game night out, it might be your place. No exactly the type of jazz venue where you relax with a glass of ...

    I love Yoga to the People. They make it so easy to get started with yoga and continue with it. They have water for $1 and mats for $2. The studio is strictly donation based so if you're just visiting NYC or in a tight place money wise they make it easy. There are plenty of studios and plenty of ...

    Great wine spot for happy hour. Lots of different wines to choose from and a cozy intimate feel. Happy hour is half priced bottles of wine and they've got some great ones to drink!

    Great place to go if you're looking for arthouse, off-beat or classic films. The best is when they have the director or another special guest there for the talk-back afterwards.

    So much fun! First encountered this place on Cinco de Mayo when they nearly killed me with their oh so strong $5 margaritas! Add in the skeeball and solid crowd people, and I was hooked. Will definitely go back!

    The hardest door in NYC! Bring your A game! Girls, don’t even bother showing up if you’re any shorter than 5’9” in heels, it’s just not going to happen. Guys, don’t even bother coming without a American Express card (and I’m talking black). The cafe at Provocateur is my favorite room in the city. It reminds me of the now-closed ...
