28. 169 Bar

Neighborhood: Lower East Side, Manhattan

This pseudo-tiki bar is dimly lit and about 80-years-old, which makes it the ideal spot to hide away and knock back cheap drinks. They also offer an extensive selection of food that's deep-fried to oblivion so that no one gets the wrong idea about where they are. It was also featured in an episode of Flight of the Conchords.
