Ear Inn, Tribeca

326 Spring Street
New York City , New York
Tel: 212 226 9060's insider take:

A vestige of old New York, this bar, which opened in the early 19th century, has been known by various names. The current moniker—said to be taken from a music magazine named Ear, published in one of the rooms above—may have been chosen for its convenience alone: the owners simply painted out part of the "B" in the sign that said "BAR." Whatever the name, it's the antidote to all the stylish spots popping up around town, a real, old fashioned tavern, complete with live bluesy music several nights a week, regular customers who've been coming for decades, and waitresses who've seen it all.

Open daily noon to 4 am.
