Nobu Next Door

NYC Restaurant105 Hudson St. (btwn Franklin and No. Moore Sts). 212-334-4445. Nobu Next Door is the quick and more affodable to it's older sister next door. Everyone is a little more crammed in here but it wasn't as snooty as I expected. Nice staff, Japanese food tasted delcious. Fair price. Found myself in the toilet of Cafe Noir 15 minutes after we left for 30 minutes as my guts 'did a number on me'. Maybe I had a bad bit of raw fish?? Pains lasted all night.

Ear Bar

NYC PubLook for the neon sign - Spring Street (btwn Washington & West Highway)

The Ear Bar is one of the oldest pubs in the city - found on Spring St and close to the river. Cosy, warm, an old fisherman's pub with good grub: burgers, pastas, fish. When it was built in 1817 it was only 5 feet from the river now it's 300! However it’s still dark and dingy, full of old sea dog-type and carnivalesque characters.

UPDATE FEB 9th: Ear Bar remains simply unchanged. A great place to meet friends or just sit on your own. Careful with the shots! Also - smoking with your drink allowed out front.

Tribeca Grand

NYC Hotel Bar2 Avenue Of The Americas, 817 519 6600 - The 203-room Tribeca Grand Hotel is the sibling of the Soho Grand Hotel but who cares: Look out for party night listings - it can rock: Have been to my most 'New York' of parties here. (May need guest list). On quieter nights it's still cool: check the main glam cocktail hotel bar (it's worth a trip just to see the inside of the hotel).

On bigger nights the back room of the bar opens and downstairs a large room for dancing and occasionally some bands.
