If you’re in Coney Island with a group that’s more interested fish bowl cocktails than the fish in the actual aquarium, go to Place To Beach. It looks like all the other stands serving lobster rolls and beers right on the boardwalk, but this place has a full-service back patio with an expanded menu of seafood-focused bar food, like fried calamari and fish and chips. They also have Happy Hour during the week, nightly drink and food specials, and DJs and live music on the weekends.

Good Night Sonny
Good Night Sonny is a cocktail bar in a busy section of the East Village, and it's a surprisingly nice place to have a drink.
For a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking.
