Mister Paradise is an East Village cocktail bar where you can sit in a big round booth and drink a cocktail made with tequila, watermelon, fermented habanero, and garlic (among other things). And while that might sound like something you’d pay to never have to drink, it’s actually great. There are also a bunch of other good cocktails that don’t have garlic and fermented habanero, and the space works well for a first date or a drink with friends when you need something cooler than the dive you treat like your living room.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
