The Big Adventure Guide of Things to See & Do in NYC - Bars, Taverns, Ale Houses, Watering Holes and more Bars

The Big Adventure recently hosted an event in NYC that brought scores of people to town. We had gathered some recommendations of various places to see and go for first time visitors and seasoned travelers alike. In the end, we had a list of restaurants, bars, activities, and museums  that are unique to New York City,relatively inexpensive and eye-opening. In short, A Big Adventure "Best Of" list. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of our suggestions here…

Looking for something to drink? Some of our beloved bars... 
Ear Inn
326 Spring Street (between Greenwich and Washington Streets)

With a legitimate claim to possibly being New York City’s oldest bar, this historic tavern has a welcoming crowd and a unique feel. Crowded at happy hour, but cozy most other times, it’s a great local spot for conversation and drinks.  Because it is located almost on the Hudson, it can be a little harder to find, but worth the effort.

133 W. 33rd Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues)

One of the largest bars in the city, Stout is just steps away from Macy’s, The Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. By New York standards, this is an unfathomably huge space that serves top notch Pub Fare. In an area that’s packed with tourists, this is a great place to rest your feet, recharge and get some food.

Stone Street
Between Coenties Aly and Hanover Square

Not just one bar, but rather a series of bars and restaurants on a surprisingly cute cobblestone street in the middle of downtown. Many bars seem similar, but Ulysses 
is our personal favorites. If you find yourselves down by Wall Street, Battery Park and World Trade Center Area, this is a great place to stop, enjoy outdoor (or indoor) dining and watch the happy hour crowd.

The Pony Bar  
637 10th Avenue (between 45th and 46th Streets)

A Beer Bar in the most traditional sense of the term. The taps have all domestic craft beers that are hand chosen and all pints are $5. A fun atmosphere packed with a welcoming crowd who share a common bond of sincerely enjoying beer. Good snacks on hand as well. Don’t forget: when you hear the bell ring, join the other patrons by yelling out “New Beer!”
