11 best college hangouts in New York City

By Rebecca Fishbein, Mon, August 22, 2022

New York is too big to feel like a college town. But, in many ways, it is one, serving as home to New York University, the New School, the CUNY schools, Columbia University, Fordham University, and Manhattan College, to name a few. These students can be found all over the city, but they throng thicker in some spots—ones that sit closer to their respective campuses and also charge way less for drinks than some of this city’s definitively non-student-friendly expensive cocktail bars. Here are some of our favorites.

Fourteen years after making its Chinatown debut, popular speakeasy-style cocktail bar Apotheke has opened a second New York City location. Located on West 26th Street in Nomad, the bar will serve its signature medicinal-themed beverages alongside its first-ever food menu, made up of small and shareable plates. Apotheke Nomad offers two separate spaces, a dimly-lit basement speakeasy and a rooftop terrace that will open later this summer.
