In the midst of Manhattan’s car dealership district sits a well-lit beacon of beer. American Retro Bar provides daily nourishment both edible and quaffable to those working in the ‘hood, while at night its bar is lined with locals watching sports (look for a bearded regular of whom there are sketches tacked to a bulletin board) or Terminal 5-goers pre- or post-gaming a show. Non-sports fans can hit up the neon Skee-ball machine or admire the oddly mounted stained glass windows. Of course there’s always cheap beers fueled by daily happy hours that last until the bartender decides to close up. Tap selections are more varied than you would expect with the options like Original Sin Cider or Goose Island. The food offered is a better-than-average selection of basic bar grub.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
