The East Village Tavern at East 10th and Avenue C is an unknown, unpretentious gem. The food is good and they have an absurdly large number of beers on tap -- usually including at least one cask "real" ale. They sell "flights" of beer which are a great way to try a ton of beers without getting completely s-face.

Down the street head for Zum Schneider if you want to have a real Austrian/Bavarian experience. Unlike the East Village Tavern, it gets packed.

Mission Dolores at the corner of 4th Ave and Carroll St in Brooklyn. It's pretty small: enter through the wind tunnel, across the little courtyard and then in. Excellent rotating selection of craft beers at GREAT prices ($5-$7). Great people to meet, pinball, dogs allowed. No food, but there are a few places close by that will deliver. Take the 'R' to Union St and walk two blocks south.

As for the city? A long time favorite that's been around since Moses wore short pants: The Holiday Cocktail Lounge, St Marks between 1st and 2nd Ave. Eclectic crowd, good prices, good jukebox.

If you like really good beer then check out The Ginger Man, The Blind Tiger, George Keeley's, The Slaughtered Lamb and Vol de Nuit.

I love the Double Windsor on Prospect Park West near 16th St. They have a great selection, and you can buy a flight. It's a laid back Brooklyn bar, there is food, but it's separate and I think it's all cash only as well.

For no-nonsense cheap fun, it's hard to beat Cherry Tavern on East 6th between 1st and A. I drowned many a sorrow in a Tijuana or Old Glory special back in my younger days.

McSourleys back in the 70's and 80's was great - still good but not like it used to be. Was a lot more friendlier back then - working class and college crowd

Cucina Di Pesce

East Village, NY. Very nice, quiet bar where you can actually hear your date talk without shouting, or hear yourself think.
