About this Business
From Our Editors
Even among Alphabet City's "quintessential dives," says New York Magazine, Common Ground stands out for its "late 19th-century stateliness." The pub's refined atmosphere of wooden bookshelves and antique accents somehow flourishes amid boisterous trivia nights and children's board games played by boisterous inner children. The upscale-yet-accessible menu further bridges the gap between posh and playful, featuring bacon-wrapped dates and goat-cheese paninis next to barbecue ribs and peel 'n' eat shrimp. Unlimited bloody marys and mimosas flow during special weekend lunches, and open mic nights fill the space with originals and covers.
