There are few bars in Manhattan as reliable as Churchill. It ticks off all the boxes necessary for a neighborhood, after work hours watering hole. It also fills in nicely for that pub that looks like it’s straight out of a rom-com when it comes to the holidays.
Churchill is quite spacious inside, with two floors and multiple bar areas. Thus, it’s great for groups or parties of any size, great or small.
I really love coming here any time of year, or any time of the week. Weirdly, I had never been here on a weekend until recently, and it’s quite quiet in there, relatively speaking, compared to the middle of the week during happy hour.
Churchill is also great for pub grub. It’s not great, but it’s definitely good (and hearty). But my go-to here, because I am me and this blog is named thus so, I always go for the bubbles (here, usually the prosecco, which is $5 during happy hour) and the FRIES, which are some of my favorite. The side order is great for two. Any more people and you just need more orders of fries, because I will go through one of these on my own. To start.
