Bars on the Lower East Side Overview

Chloe 81 - Bar | Lounge | Speakeasy in Lower East Side, NYC

When it comes to bar hopping, bars in the Lower East Side are some of the finest the city has to offer. With everything from dives to clubs to lounges this inexpensive neighborhood is like a buffet of New York nightlife, and a favorite area for many New Yorkers.

Lower East Side bars are a mecca of dives where narrow cramped bars like the Skinny and the Dark Room make grinding up against a stranger simply a matter of walking through the bar. Hipsters in flannel shirts with knuckle tattoos frequent Welcome to the Johnsons or Arlene's Grocery where drinks are cheap and the music is loud. For live music lovers, the LES is filled with options from Pianos to Mercury Lounge where local bands and up and coming artists perform on a nightly basis for crowds from around the city. And while dives are the major allure of this downtown neighborhood, destination clubs like The Box's infamously exclusive cabaret or glamorous speakeasy Beauty and Essex cater to a more chic clientele looking to see and be seen.

With street after narrow street of dimly lit bars packed in with stylishly dressed-down patrons from artists to off duty waiters to party girls, the Lower East Side is bustling with activity and plenty of bars to accommodate everyone looking for a fun night out.
