Hell’s Kitchen, close to Times Square, has long had a reputation for being unfashionable among New Yorkers. But with a new generation of bars popping up all over the neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen could well become the next ‘it’ place in NYC. We check out the 10 best bars in the area.
A spin-off of the popular Chelsea venue, Boxer’s HK, a sports bar on 9th avenue, has quickly gained traction in the already LGBT friendly Hell’s Kitchen. Occupying three levels, including a 1500sqft rooftop terrace that is perfect for those balmy summer days, and a lounge with 20 flat screen TVs showing all the biggest games, the bar is a solid choice any time of year. Not one for crowds? The lower level, called the DogPound, can be booked for private events and parties, meaning with just a phone call you and your friends (and a few shirtless bartenders) can have the space all to yourselves.
