Drinking in Chinatown, All Hail Winnie’s

Chinatown is an eating paradise. But as a drinking destination? Not so much. Sure, you can visit those fancy cocktail bars on scenic Doyers street if you have the attitude and the cash (or someone else is buying), but for a true neighborhood boozing experience you only have one choice — Winnie’s Bar. And thank goodness it’s a winner. Late at night it’s a karaoke hotspot, but before the night owls come out to play, it’s a fun hang out where you’ll find locals tossing down drinks and catching up with friends after a long day of work. Does it get any better than the classic red booths, a dingy yet friendly atmosphere and cold bottles of Bud? Top it off with a dinner at one of the 200+ restaurants, and you have the perfect Chinatown night on the town.
