Sidebar = Satisfaction (120 East 15th Street)

After yet another great experience at Sidebar last night, I thought I should do the watering hole justice by letting everyone know about this great Union Square Bar. Sidebar (www.sidebarny.com), located at 120 East 15th Street (corner of Irving Place), fronts as a Sports Bar. Don’t be fooled though, Sidebar has much more to offer….
Walking by Sidebar on a normal day, you will see the HD TV’s blaring World Cup, Baseball, or Football, depending on the season. The main area is the perfect size, not too big and not too small. By night, Sidebar transforms itself into a lively bar/lounge/club perfect for birthdays, celebrations or a night out on the town. It is then that I discovered the main bar area is just 1/3 of the space of Sidebar. Behind the main bar, there is a large room with couches along the edges and another large bar. Adjacent to the main room, there is a saloon-style area and large bar as well.
I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to like versatility and Sidebar has it.
And here’s the best part. Despite the fact that this place is a “Sports Bar” and turns into a “Club/Lounge” at night, it still maintains the local bar feel during the week. On Monday nights, they host a Trivia night (with the Top 3 getting free drink vouchers). And last night, they gave out free drinks just for “Liking” Sidebar on facebook.
All in all, Sidebar is a great place, has a wide selection of booze and is always a ton of fun.
