Let’s be honest–drunchies are a very serious matter. And in a city full of so many 24-hour delis, late night diners and after hours menus, where should one pop a squat and snag a midnight snack when you need just one more drink? Here are our top picks for bars with late night food. This way, you can drink til last call and satisfy your need for drunk snacking simultaneously.
95 Pearl St, New York, NY 10004
Food served till 3 am
This folksy tavern has a pretty impressive raw bar menu during the day, but when the sun goes down and FiDi livens up a bit, the late night food comes out. All your favorite bar snacks from nachos to pigs in a blanket to mozz sticks and sliders are available until 3 am here. After all, a couple of Irish whiskies on a Tuesday afternoon can definitely put a businessman in the drunchie mood.

For something a little classier, the infamous French all-nighter serves snacks 24 hours a day. Snag a classic cocktail til last call, then get cozy with some French onion soup, a lamb burger or braised steak sandwich and fresh rigatoni. No sloppy 3 am pancakes and homefries at this 24 hour joint–from midnight to 6AM, the “overnight” menu includes some pretty tasty and legitimate meals.
Growler Bar and Bites
55 Stone St, New York, NY 10004
Food served til 3AM
This FiDi after-work hotspot has your classic bar snacks–served till 3 in the morning. Stick around after hours and top your beer-filled belly with some hush puppies, fried pickles, a soft pretzel or some pork belly sliders. Wall Street bros are far more interesting at 3 am, anyway.
Food served till 4 am
18 Spring St, New York, NY 10012
One of my favorite bars in the city for a great cocktail and a good quality crowd, Mother’s Ruin in lower Manhattan offers a great selection of “mighty nibbles” served until 4 am. Creative cocktails will have you craving these delectable snacks, with unusual combos like curried crab dip, New Mexican frito pie, duck wings and a French onion soup grilled cheese. Yum!
