happy hour bar with good food

Looking for a bar or restaurant with a lively bar area that has some decent food. Would like to be somewhere between 25th and 5th st, not too expensive or formal and somewhat close to the subway (so nothing too far east or west). My boyfriend's idea of a bar with food is Reservoir or Pourhouse so ideally the menu would have some typical bar food and perhaps some more interesting and healthy options. Thanks.

      Pending good weather (though not sure about a deal), head to an outdoor bar:
      Harry's Water Taxi at S.S. Seaport
      230 Fifth
      Hudson Terrace
      Bowery Bar & Grill


    2. 1849 on Bleeker (2 blocks from 4th St subway.) Great wings (20 cents 3-6pm) and nachos, 1/2 price happy hour until 8 every day, decent beer selection, a menu with a lot of other food options. Lots of small tables in the main space.
