Tribeca may be better known for the stroller brigades and government buildings than the nightlife but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great spots to grab a drink. From dive bars to specialty bars, there is a place for cocktails for every taste. Here are 5 bars to check out in Tribeca.
Nancy Whiskey Pub
Nancy Whiskey Pub is a great place to relax and socialize with friends. It has consistently been listed as one of the best dive bars in New York for a long period and this speaks of the quality of their service. Perhaps one key reason for the popularity of this bar (especially among locals) is the pocket-friendly prices. With a sprawling shuffleboard table which takes a significant amount of floor space, the pub provides a cool and friendly atmosphere for everyone and encourages social interaction among its clients.
