If you’re with a few friends near the northern end of the Upper West Side, and you’re looking for a very normal bar where you can hang out for any length of time while you have some inexpensive drinks, go to Bob’s Your Uncle. It feels sort of like a big, slightly divey rec room, with brick walls, a shuffleboard table, and photos of various people named Bob up on the wall. They also have jello shots, so your night here can either be very tame or full of colorful, gelatinous alcohol.
