Sorry for the non-foodie post but since it's summer, I thought it'd be nice to get a list of decent bars that stay open late and that have outdoor seating in Manhattan. I'm not looking for fancy hotel rooftop bars - I know that list and it's recycled every year by NY Mag and Sheckys. I'm looking for the more casual, laid-back, and cheap-ish places with a lively back garden that stays open late for the drinkers, not diners. I'll start with a couple that I've been to:
d.b.a. in the east village - a very down-to-earth pub with abundant outdoor seating, though at times too college-y and overrun by NYU undergrads.
B Bar in Noho - great outdoor space but on the weekends, completely filled with sorority girls and frat boys. Definitely a meat market and not a laid-back place to have a couple drinks.
Is there anywhere else that's decent?
