New Bars on the LES

The Lower East Side bar bubble shows no signs of bursting, with hotspots like funky TwoDoorsDown, natural wine wizard Fossetta, and late-night cocktail lounge Midnight Plus One drawing crowds from across the city — including thirsty residents at nearby One Manhattan Square.

TwoDoorsDown | 159 East Houston Street

Leave the fanfare above ground. TwoDoorsDown offers an underground escape on the Lower East Side. Cafe Balearica owner Dave Doyle lifts the curtain on his newest concept: a subtle yet spirited evening hideaway. From your perch at the bar, or nestled in a private vinyl booth, take in craft cocktails like the Nightrider Paloma and popular Guinness Punch. If you vibe with old-school NYC energy merged with the new sounds of disco, house, and Afrobeat spinning nightly, then you’ve found your discreet home for nights that refuse to end early. Swing by Tuesday through Sunday after 5 p.m., and see for yourself — TwoDoorsDown welcomes after-hours explorers ready to lose track of the hour.

Fossetta | 198 Allen Street

Hospitality veterans Julie Park, Joshua Even, and chef Charlene Santiago welcome you to Fossetta, their intimate 55-seat Mediterranean-inspired spot. Fresh-made pastas, like rich chicken liver rigatoni and bucatini all’amatriciana made with guanciale, anchor the menu alongside bites like fried pig ear with onion agrodolce. But Fossetta’s true highlight is Even’s ever-changing, stellar natural wine program, which is focused on small-production Italian, French, and Spanish bottles. Within the Art Deco dining room, Even encourages discovery of new wine pairings for chef Santiago’s Roman-style pastas and baked goods. While not technically a bar, Fossetta’s wine program is so exceptional, it would’ve been a mistake not to include this new LES hotspot here.

Midnight Plus One | 98 Kenmare Street

The team behind Nolita favorites Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones expanded their culinary empire last September with Midnight Plus One, a moody subterranean cocktail lounge and late-night eatery tucked downstairs below sister restaurant Bar Pasquale. Descend to discover a sexy, vintage-inspired space with leather banquettes, chandeliers, and shelves stacked with books and records. Midnight Plus One takes inspiration from the classic 1936 Italian cocktail handbook “1,000 Mixtures” by Elvezio Grassi, augmented by original drinks made by beverage director Theo Lieberman. Sip on cocktails like the Ascaro with cognac and yellow Chartreuse, or sample the rotating seasonal creations. Pair your drinks with small crudo plates showcasing seafood and caviar, chef Ryan Hardy’s signature fried chicken with Calabrian honey, or grilled octopus and arancini. Live jazz and DJ sets make Midnight Plus One the perfect spot for expertly crafted late-night bites and cocktails Wednesday through Saturday nights. But arrive early, or make a reservation ahead of time, as this place is known to fill up fast!
