Broome Street Bar
363 West Broadway
With a hodgepodge mix of professionals and longtime locals, this is a good place for couples to stop by for a burger and a few beers. (Give the thick-cut fries and the taco salad a shot.) It's also notable for its tight quarters, the lovely stained glass portrait behind the bar, and a good beer selection. A welcome respite from the rest of trendy SoHo.
