Most of the year, Revival is nothing more and nothing less than a comfortable, slightly sleepy neighborhood bar, with bowls of Doritos to satisfy its regular happy-hour denizens. But once the thermometer tops 65, you'll find your spirits revived indeed—and not just from the spirits you're drinking. Revival's outdoor terrace is just like the one you'd have if you could afford a Gramercy townhouse, replete with pretty patio furniture and a thick canopy of trees. On a residential block just east of Union Square's main eating and drinking drag, it's ideal for a quiet drink before a show at Irving Plaza.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
