If you need a place to sit around with a few friends and drink a beer or two after work, Harlem Ale House is a perfectly relaxed place to do it. The menus are all on iPads here, and every table has several phone chargers. Aside from those two technological details, this divey neighborhood bar could really have existed in any era that included sports on TV, chicken wings, and beer.
