Neighborhood: East Village
Address: 212 Avenue A
Website: fatbuddhabar.com

Home to one of the best happy hours and the Wednesday night Left Coast party, featuring all the best west coast jams, Fat Buddha is a standout in the midst of the crust that is now the East Village. So if you're looking to avoid bros and all their shrill-voiced heauxs, drop in and hit your dougie around the giant island bar. It's probably the only place you'll hear some Nate Dogg past 1st avenue.
