Tel: 212 228 0228's insider take:

It seems like with each sunrise there comes a new condo, hotel, or trendy boutique on the once slummy stretch of the Bowery. Gritty CBGB has been transformed into a John Varvatos store hawking $100 tees, and the flophouses of yesteryear now sport $500-a-night price tags. But some new spots have managed to walk the line between the street's raucous past and its more swank future. Bowery Electric is one of the best. Yes, the space is dark and sparse and there's a suit-clad bouncer, but the door policy is democratic, the DJ is known to play Iggy Pop, and buying a drink won't require you to take out a second mortgage.

Open daily 4 pm to 4 am.
