Lower Manhattan’s Tribeca is quickly becoming Manhattan’s most desired neighborhood due to its influence in the film and events industry. Best known for its yearly film festival (TriBeCa Film Festival), its prime shopping, dining and central location within the lower Manhattan communities–this makes it a must-visit for anyone traveling through the city. Aside from its influence in film and its prime apartment living for young creatives it has its fair share of bars worth having a drink in too. Below is a list of bars we recommend checking out if you’re in the area.

1. Brandy Library
