I googled "darts near me" when we were finishing up dinner and was led to Kettle of Fish. As a group of four from Wisconsin, we loved it! They had great beer on tap - Central Waters- and awesome dart boards. The owner of the...More

Located in the Christopher Street district it is a friendly and relaxed neighborhood style bar. The owner is from Wisconsin, so they have specialty items from Wisconsin - including Door County Cherries for the Manhattans. The service is unreasonably slow. So you better order two...More

Good spot for drinks with friends. Let you bring in food and there are a decent amount of bar games to keep you occupied if you're bored. Usually a fun crowd there when it's not overly packed.

Neat little hole in the wall joint, where many people of note have hung out - Dylan, Kerouac. Not a hugely interesting beer menu, but sufficient. Great vibe. Dart board was full of pretentious players, so didn't even want to try to get on the...More

I goggled good jukeboxes in the Village and this famous spot popped up. It still has the Kerouac neon sign even if in a different location. Very laid-back and friendly and the music was perfect.

Good bar but it can get really crowded late and on weekends. If it's not brutally crowded it's a good time.

Three iterations ago, Jack Kerouac got plastered and beaten in this restaurant and there are still remnants of the Beat Generation on the walls. But it has morphed into a Packer fan haven and as a former farm boy from Wisconsin, it is almost required...More

Kettle of Fish is a Green Bay Packers themed bar with Wisconsin beers on tap and a friendly midwestern feel. Stop by to watch a Packers game (be sure to come a few hours early) or simply relax and have a few beers.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
