East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to

No. PDT is a bar. But they can definitely eat at Crifs.

It is definitely NOT a "genuine" speakeasy, however it is probably the closest thing to a modern speakeasy the city has to offer. Awesome atmosphere.
