Indian Road appeases edacious abdomens with tasty lunch and dinner options. Pacify overeager palates with entrees, such as the lobster mac & cheese—which is composed of lush lobster, macaroni pasta cloaked in an ambrosial four-cheese fusion, and truffle oil ($16)—or the vegetarian thai curry, a dish of brown rice, veggies, and torched tofu ($14). Indian Road also sports a capacious international suds selection with brews that include the French Kasteel Cru ($8) and Baltika Extra 9 lager from Russia ($7).
Every once in a while the muddled sounds of conversation, music, and cue balls clanking against pool tables spill onto the corner of 236th Street and Broadway. The source of the sounds is The Bridge Tavern, a neighborhood pub with an emphasis on the community. Its ceiling stretches over the establishment with a mural dedicated to Kingsbridge and another mural celebrating the Yankees. Amid a row of Bronx street signs and a wraparound bar, servers fuel the chatter with beer, wings, and half-pound burgers.
Named a Bronx beer nerd's best friend by The New York Times, The Bronx Ale House features a rotating cast of ales, ciders, lagers, and stouts to fill glasses, goblets, rubber boots, and eventually mouths. On their on tap and bottled beer menus bespectacled beer lovers will find a variety of New York brews such as Blue Point Toasted Lager and Ithaca Flower Power IPA, as well as international mainstays including Guinness and Chimay Blanc. Once you've made your sudsy selection, pair pale ales with classic bar grub such as sliced beer sausages, fried mac 'n' cheese, hot wings, burgers, fries, and more.
Three floors, five bars, flashing lights, and thumping bass are the ingredients that make up the tasty cocktail that is SOHO Nightclub. Each floor has its own atmosphere and guests are invited to wander from level to level, sipping drinks and taking in the scene. A male revue and a legion of go-go dancers add sultry moves to the mix on designated evenings. Revelers can relax with bottle service or hookah at tables—the perfect setting for reading a really good book.
