late night bars with outdoor space?

Hi all,

Sorry for the non-foodie post but since it's summer, I thought it'd be nice to get a list of decent bars that stay open late and that have outdoor seating in Manhattan. I'm not looking for fancy hotel rooftop bars - I know that list and it's recycled every year by NY Mag and Sheckys. I'm looking for the more casual, laid-back, and cheap-ish places with a lively back garden that stays open late for the drinkers, not diners. I'll start with a couple that I've been to:

d.b.a. in the east village - a very down-to-earth pub with abundant outdoor seating, though at times too college-y and overrun by NYU undergrads.

B Bar in Noho - great outdoor space but on the weekends, completely filled with sorority girls and frat boys. Definitely a meat market and not a laid-back place to have a couple drinks.

Is there anywhere else that's decent?

  1. most outdoor bars close the outdoor space early to appease the neighbors.

    my pick is lorelay on rivington...just an awesome beer garden with great beer and food.

        Loreley is great though it closes the outdoor space at midnight.
