This bar kicks off the Lower East spots on this list. It’s not going to feel too old, or too young. Most of the people that hit this bar up on a Friday are going to be recent college grads, so you will be among those in their early twenties, old enough to reminisce about college but leave it as just that. Plus, drinks aren’t going to empty your pocket. And bonus, if you hang around past midnight, the DJ helps turn the bar into a pretty snazzy dance scene.
Grey Lady, 77 Delancey St.
