733 Washington Street

“This is the closest bar and restaurant to the theater so it’s the perfect spot to grab a quick drink before or after a show. The Buffalo chicken fingers and their hand cut fries are among our favorites at this local and low key bar.” – GRANT

533 Hudson St. (bet. Charles & West 10th)

“This place has become our go to after late nights in the theater. Their hot wings…I don’t think there are better ones in the Village. If there are, I want to try them. Great tap list too.” – NATE

Celebrating the American Table for 25 years! “Our favorites include their buttermilk biscuits, kale salad, Bubby’s burger, and they have an insanely delicious dessert menu that includes Michigan Sour Cherry Pie and Banana Pudding. So good!” – JOE

519 Hudson Street

“Cowgirl is a casual and festive restaurant and bar with a friendly and welcoming staff. We’re super fans. Our favorites on the menu include the chicken fried steak fingers and the chopped salad with bacon and chicken and their oversized iced tea. So good. Did we mention there’s a pinball machine in the back?” – JOE

575 Hudson Street

“The Lobster roll and 15 Spice BBQ Pork Sandwich will change your life. Seriously. This is more of a “date” bar for those who have a bit more padding in their back pockets” – GRANT

425 West St. (bet. 11th St. & Perry)

“If you’re looking for a fun and casual place to get a pre-show drink near the Bank Street Theater, we recommend The Rusty Knot. The kitschy nautical & Polynesian themed interior is deliberately and deliciously campy. The staff is super friendly. And from 4:00 – 7:00 PM on weekdays they have a 2-for-1 happy hour special on well drinks. If you’re feeling peckish, be sure to try the pretzel dogs or the guacamole and chips. And if you’ve never ordered a Dark & Stormy before, this is the place to take the plunge.” – KEVIN
