    Your list is missing Cheap Shots, Blue and Gold, Tile Bar (WCOU) , Lily Coogans, Lucy’s, Mars Bar, Desnuda, Boiler Room, Phoenix, Finnerty’s, Evolution, King’s Head Tavern, Beauty Bar, Continental, Bar 82, La Linea, V Bar, Arrow Bar, Aces and Eights, Kelly’s Sports Bar, Library, Piano’s, Fat Baby, La Caverna, 151, likely others.

    Mumbles is above 14th st. and is a restaurant

    Dick’s is now 12th St. Ale House

    Rapture books/cafe is not a bar, and it’s not there anymore

    Mercury Lounge is a music venue!

      Thanks, exactly the feedback I was looking for, I knew I wouldn’t be able to make an all-inclusive list. I’ll add these shortly.

      Does the front bar at Mercury not count as a bar? I think I’d argue it does.

    A hearty list. Obviously you will have to delete places which close before you get to them, but will you add places which opened after the project got underway? VBar St Mark’s is one example which comes to mind.

      Thanks, Wilfrid. And that may well have been you talking food at Duke’s. I’ve been there quite a few times, but that conversation was certainly notable.

    You also forgot The Edge, Karma, Duke’s…

  4. April 3rd, 2010 at 16:03 | #6

    He has already reviewed Duke’s as On The C (Duke’s Bar); Duke’s isn’t the official name, although I agree everyone calls it that.

    @wampey
    You’ve listed some important additions there. If it was me, I’d take Freeman’s, Tapeo 29 and Yuca off the list, because they are all primarily restaurants. Sure, they have bars, but so does Hearth.

    Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good site!

    I usually do not leave many comments, but after looking at through some of the responses on this page The Downtown NYC Bar Project » The List. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or do a few of these remarks look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    An impressive share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing a little bit similar evaluation on this. He in fact bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile.
