A cozy bar where you'd least expect it—yes, in a grocery store. On Tap offers up 100s of beers and a solid line-up of BBQ fare. Plus, there is also free popcorn, big screen TVs, and absolutely no claim of alumni-bar status. In summation, On Tap is cool because it provides everything you want in a normal bar without the overt frat boy douchery that sadly weasels its way into almost every other normal bar in Manhattan. -Nick Schonberger
