The Most Popular Bars In Soho

Located in Lower Manhattan, New York, Soho is well-known for its International designer shopping, trendy art galleries, and high-quality wine bars. Once you’ve had your dose of retail therapy, you can’t miss out on the nightlife this area has to offer. From after-work happy hours to the hippest cocktail bars, here are the best places to grab a drink in Soho.

Pegu Club

Audrey Saunders is known as the queen of mixology, and her bar the Pegu Club showcases just that. Her Earl Grey MarTEAni is a famous cocktail made of infused Tanqueray gin, egg white, and lemon juice. There are cozy nooks you can tuck into for a more intimate experience, or sit at open tables in the middle of the action.

Dos Caminos Soho

Steve Hanson truly knows how to make a fiesta out of Mexican food. Here you can expect freshly made guacamole, shredded pork tacos, and the most potent margaritas in town. Reservations are a must as the prized patio seating fills out fast during prime time. Enjoy their famous Prickly Pear Shot while dining on some of the best food in the area.


This 18th-story bar and lounge is located in the James Hotel and features a rooftop deck and contemporary décor. In the colder months, guests enjoy a freeform lounge designed with exotic wood tables, upholstered seating, and mid-century Arco lamps. When the weather heats up, the party moves out to the roof deck where guests can admire the breath-taking views.

La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels

Known for its excellent service and an extensive selection of wine, La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels is the perfect place for a nightcap. With over 600 bottles of wine, this bar is still unpretentious and approachable. It is a hotspot for happy hour, and their French and Mediterranean small plates.

The Ship

For classic drinks and small plates, head over to The Ship the downstairs bar on Lafayette street. The atmosphere is what you would expect from a packed cocktail lounge. Their small tapas style plates could arguably be considered Michelin star quality. For the non-drinkers, the bartenders can make a wide variety of delicious specialty mocktails.

Kenn’s Broome Street Bar

Kenn’s Broome Street Bar has been serving pub food and draft beers since 1972. Locals and visitors love coming here for its friendly vibe. It’s a great spot to have a first date drink or to celebrate a birthday with 20 of your closest friends.
