Besides the ice-cold brews and cocktails, you’ve got some crowd-pleasing pub grub to enjoy at Coogan’s as well.

Buddha Beer Bar (4476 Broadway)

The Buddha Beer Bar’s famous among Big Apple craft-beer connoisseurs drawn by more than 20 microbrews on tap. The food’s also worth writing home about: Korean-inspired fare that goes above and beyond the usual bar bites.

Bar 180 (4241 Broadway)

Stylish and sexy Bar 180 features 20 rotating craft beers of the finest quality as well as a galaxy of handcrafted cocktails, backed up by food inspired by such wide-ranging New World cuisines as Caribbean, Mexican, Chilean, and U.S. East Coast.

Monkey Room (589 Fort Washington Ave)

A great selection of drinks, hits-the-spot pub grub, live music, karaoke, the perfect ambience: Monkey Room is a neighborhood bar that hits all the right notes, any day of the week.

Pocion Lounge (704 W. 177th St)

Pocion advertises itself as “the only plant-based cocktail lounge in Washington Heights.” Here’s a place to grab artisan cocktails such as the vodka-based Maracuya and the gin-based Pachamama alongside Latin- and Caribbean-inspired vegan fare in the form of drink-friendly small plates.
