    You come for the hip hop but you should probably be eating what are actually the best wings in the east village

    I love this place for the old school Music and the friendly and cool bartenders..! The only downside is that is small and tends to form a line outside when crowded.. 5 dollar cover after 10 go early!

    Come here is you want to dance to hip hop and throwbacks. Happy hour drink and deal is good. Lychee martini and kimchi backs! Not cool when there's cover but that's when you know the dj is good

    The food here is wonderful and the happy hour special is something you don't want to miss. Music gets live and can get crowded.

    Fat Buddha had an awesome staff, good music and a cool vibe. I highly recommend it but advise to preface as the drinks are pretty expensive. Whatever you do, do not try the beer Cass!

    Fat Buddha has quickly become one of my favorite afterwork happy hour spots. Especially on Wednesdays. Bartenders and mgmt are cooler than the other side of the pillow. An East Village gem.

    This place rocks the 90s hip-hop like no other, with classic vinyls in the front window. Always killer music. The Korean tacos are ridiculously good. Go for it.

    $5 cover but worth the money. Great DJs make it a fun place for a late night stop in. Be ready to dance

    Nothing special inside but the cocktails are New York cheap and the hip hop is banging! Follow their Instagram (@fatbuddhabar) for updates on legendary djs passing thru.

    Korean food, R&B music and more bouncer looking people than needed. The food definitly leaves your awake at night (not the good kind)

    Arrive around 9 to avoid a queue on Sat night. Skip the matcha martini which had clumps of matcha powder $14

    From my 21st birthday and now years later, never a time where I didn't have fun here. Kimchi backs and Kir royale ❤

    Night owl? Don't worry, there's a great late night menu which should be paired with the unique lychee martini.

    Come on a weeknight and hang out with the bartenders. If you're lucky they might let you work the bar yourself
