The Malt House is a pretty decent pub in an area with a lot of bad bars. It’s in the part of Greenwich Village directly below NYU, but you won’t find too many college kids throwing up in here. It stays pretty calm, and you can either sit up front and watch a game or hang out with a bunch of friends in the back room. They also have a full menu (with bottomless brunch on weekends), and the beer selection isn’t bad. Plus, it doesn’t smell terrible in here. With pubs, that should never be taken for granted.

There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for “Immaculate” Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.
