Sophisticated wine bars with a mix of casual sports bars, cozy pubs for beer enthusiasts, and elegant rooftop bars with breathtaking skyline views — whatever you’re in the mood for, it won’t be a challenge to find.

The Banc Bar Cafe 

Set in a former 1920s bank building, this American restaurant is a bona fide neighborhood standby, particularly for brunch. Executive chef John J. Loughran, formerly of Brooklyn’s esteemed River Cafe, oversees a menu that changes seasonally. On the drinks front, there are over 100 whiskeys, which can be sipped on the outdoor terrace—the largest in Murray Hill—while enjoying free live music on Thursdays and Sundays.

Middle Branch 

Opened in 2012 by the late cocktail revolutionary Sasha Petraske, Middle Branch was the first true cocktail bar in Murray Hill. Set in a bi-level, refurbished townhouse, the unmarked speakeasy has preserved much of its original ethos under the leadership of veteran bartender and managing partner Lucinda Sterling, focusing on classic cocktails with a phenomenal “bartender’s choice” option. Simply inform your barman or woman of your mood—refreshing or spirits-forward; citrusy or sweet—and they’ll whip up something tailor-made for you.

Cask Bar & Kitchen

Dark wood, dim lights, and hand drawn ales set the scene for a meal at Cask. While it draws a large light night crowd for after-dinner drinks, the food holds its own and options are aplenty (think simple, like truffle mac and cheese). The bar’s name nods to its two rotating cask beers, which are unpasteurized, hand-produced ales.

Public House

Looking to catch the game and grab a burger? Public House offers a lively crowd in a fancified sports bar environment. A staple of the after-work crowd, happy hour prices include five-dollar domestic beers, six-buck house wine, and seven-dollar cocktails. If you’re sticking around for dinner, the bar offers a three-course set menu—with wine! —every Wednesday.
