Boilermaker is a casual cocktail bar on Houston with lots of seating and some above-average bar food. If you’re into veggie burgers, you should know they make a decent one. And if you stick around until midnight, that’s when they start serving pancakes (every night of the week). They also make some great cocktails and pour a good selection of craft beers. So the next time you need a low-key drink (and maybe some food) in the East Village, check this place out.
