Spend the night in Inman and Union Squares
Let the beer gods decide at Bukowski Tavern
If the lengthy beer menu (32 draft lines, countless bottles) at this no-frills hang threatens to blow your mind, ask the bartender to spin the beer wheel. Yes, the beer wheel. Then, drink whatever it lands on. Enjoy. Repeat. Something tells us that Charles Bukowski — the crotchety writer, tippler, and namesake for this pub — would approve.
Also: Snag a seat by the open windows in the summer and be sure to hit the ATM — Bukowski is cash only.
