The Brazen Fox is great for when you want to watch some sports with friends in a place that doesn’t smell like stale beer and body odor. You might get a little whiff of those things (it gets kind of crowded), but this is definitely a nicer pub. It’s clean, modern, there are two floors, and they have a pretty huge menu. The food isn’t anything special, but it’ll keep you from getting too drunk too fast (and there are dollar oysters all day every day).
The Brazen Fox is permanently closed.

Bravest on 38th
Bravest on 38th is the only fireman-themed and fireman-occupied bar in Gramercy. And probably the whole city.
Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
