    Awesome bar staff who know what they're doing. They started happy hour at St. Marks Pl. with $4 drafts and $7 cocktails on weekdays till 8 and weekend till 5. Best place to sit outside in the area!

    A no-frills bar on a busy stretch of St.Marks, Bua has some of the best outdoor booths in the city. The drinks are basic but strong and it's easy to pass a entire night - or day - here.

    Before Bua, this spot was Sin-e on St. Mark's. It was an Irish café where I saw Jeff Buckley play, while Jeff was dating my ex-girlfriend Janet. #PorcelainTheBook Read more

    Burger is on the small side, fried chicken sandwich on the large side. Both are equally tasty, so consider your appetite. What the kale salad lacks in healthiness it makes up for in flavor.
