    McSorley’s Old Ale House







    Superlatives abound when you are talking about one of New York’s oldest continuously-operating bars. McSorley’s is so old, in fact, that it it might as well have come with the colony when the British bought it. For over 150 years, McSorley’s has been brewing its own, and just ent…

NYC’s 5 Best College Bars

September 26, 2012 2:41 PM

(file photo/Clipart)

Love ’em or hate ’em, fresh-faced college kids have returned to NYC for the new school year. For local bars, this means an influx of customers that can barely hold their booze but know how to party. Whether you’re a student looking to kick back after class or you’re a local looking for college-priced deals, we know where to send you. When you’re at one of these Greenwich Village or Upper West Side haunts, chances are you’ll be mingling with the new class at New York University and Columbia University. By Selena Ricks-Good.

Dark and divey – yet warm and welcoming – Black and White has been an NYU hangout for years. The combination of no-nonsense bartenders, cheap drinks and a nightly DJ after 10 p.m. keep the party vibe in full effect. On weekends, the bar gets packed and turns into more of a meat market.

For a more mature NYU scene, head to this gastropub featuring comfort food and a full bar in a trendy setting. Chandeliers, red banquettes and a “library” wall  create a sophisticated atmosphere while 8 tvs at the bar keep sports fans entertained. Happy hour is every day from 4 to 8 p.m. featuring student-friendly deals such as $3 draft beers, $4 wines and $5 Appletinis and Cosmos.

This chic concert hall opened by a group of young musicians makes for one jazzed up drinking experience. Music and performing arts majors should find plenty of inspiration here as the bookings range from indie rock to classical. On Friday nights, a regular rotation of DJs give the crowd an excuse to let loose. A daily happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. features $5 draft beers, well drinks and house wines.

Cheap beer, darts, pool table–this unpretentious dive has everything a college bar calls for. Columbia coeds flock here for a place to unwind and drink $2-$3 beers during the daily happy hour between 4 and 7 p.m. Come early to snag one of the booths or vintage dentist chairs, as the bar gets packed every night. Skip the high tuition and test your knowledge at weekly trivia nights, with prizes including bar tabs.

Although this divey sports bar is named after Columbia’s mascot, the TVs at Lion’s Head tend to show other school’s games, as Columbia is not known for its athletics.  Weekly specials such as $7 pitchers of beer, 25-cent wings and $1 drafts help students from stressing about their next exam. Video games such as Ms. Pac-Man keep the rec room vibe alive.

      Cool student bars/areas.

      I’m 22 and will be coming to NYC alone this coming Monday, and while I have all my days planned out, my nights are free. I was just wondering where all the students hang out around Manhattan as it would be cool to meet and share a drink with people of a similar age to myself in the evening.

      Thanks.

      Re: Cool student bars/areas.

      Morningside Heights, the neighborhood around Columbia University , has a concentration of bars and restaurants catering to that student population. Many of them are on Broadway, starting at Columbia’s main gate (116th Street) and heading south for 10+ blocks from there.

      A lot of the NYU campus is in Greenwich Village , but it’s very spread out and their dorms are all over Manhattan. There are certainly bars in the Village that are more aimed at students, but these are interspersed with establishments catering to the general population. I’m afraid I don’t know of any specific student bars there, but other posters hopefully do!

      The Village is a very popular area of the city for all ages, lots of students, locals and tourists there. Morningside Heights is more secluded and more strongly shaped around the Columbia University community.

      The East Village near St Marks . Consider a stop at McSorley’s …wikipedia.org/wiki/…27s_Old_Ale_House

      Bleecker Street has bars and places for music, including http://www.bitterend.com/ and consider a stop at the http://www.peculierpub.com which has an extensive beer menu.

      Bring photo ID as proof of age.

      Re: Cool student bars/areas.

      The East Village tends to skew a bit younger than Greenwich Village or the West Village , but certainly you’ll find lots of people in their early to mid 20s out at bars in all the Villages, as well as in many parts of the city. If you specifically want to hang out with college students, Morningside Heights is the easiest place to narrow your crowd that way.

      Re: Cool student bars/areas.

      "When people say The Village which village do they mean? Sorry to sound dumb!"

      You don’t sound dumb at all, it’s a perfectly good question. The answer is it depends on who you are talking to.

      The Village has become a catch-all term for the neighborhood between 14th Street and Houston Street ( Hudson River to East River) and I think that’s what most people mean today.

      This area used to be broken into two terms: Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side . In the 1980s, real estate people, wanting to minimize the bad aspects of the Lower East Side and wanting to capitalize on the cool factor of Greenwich Village, started calling the Lower East Side by the name "The East Village ."

      Usually, I try to specify with people the West Village is everything west of 5th Avenue and the East Village is everything east of 5th Avenue.

      There’s an older woman in my building who will roll her eyes and say, "There is no such thing as the East Village, are you referring to the Lower East Side?"

      And to confuse things even more, there is an area in Brooklyn called "The Village" which some people are trying to make happen. A recent, and confusing, example of this was in the recent US version of the tv show "The Slap" one of the characters said, "Let’s go get ribs in The Village." But this usage is not that popular at present.

      And I know that’s more than you ever wanted to know about The Village.

      Re: Cool student bars/areas.

      and to make it more confusing there is still an area called the Lower East Side which is not the same as the East village –in my mind, Houston is the dividing street, with the east village uptown and the Lower East side below.

      Re: Cool student bars/areas.

      And where is "the Village" in Brooklyn ? Never having heard of it I Googled and got three completely different areas — Brooklyn Heights , Gravesend, and an area to the east of Barclays Center . None were really an exact match.

      It can’t be in very common usage if you can’t find it in Google!!
