The world-famous landmark features top comedians straight from other clubs, movies, and TV shows such as The Tonight Show and Letterman. Stars who have performed here include Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock.

If your travels take you downtown, head over to Broome Street Bar in SoHo. With its mix of professionals and locals, Broome Street is a relaxing place to stop in for a moderately priced burger and a few beers. Open since 1972, Broome Street Bar is also notable for its cozy atmosphere, the lovely stained-glass portrait behind the bar, and a good beer selection. 363 West Broadway at Broome St., 212-925-2086

Garage Restaurant and Café has it all -- great food, an outdoor cafe, and live jazz all day and night. Multi-level dining gives everyone the best seat in the house, whether relaxing on richly upholstered banquettes or overlooking the entire scene from a cozy booth on the balcony. With 17 draught beers, a fireplace, late-night dining until 2:30am, and great people-watching, a stop at Garage is a must when visiting Greenwich Village. 99 Seventh Ave. So. (Christopher St.), 212-645-0600;

Stop into any of Heartland Brewery’s locations and you’ll see that it isn’t just beer that’s brewing at New York’s first American-style brewpub. The relaxed atmosphere makes it a great place to kick back and relax, and the multiple locations make it easy to stop in and sample one of the many unique brewed beers, or have one of the appetizers. And located next door to the Times Square location is HB Burger, which serves nine specialty burgers and “hard shakes,” which are definitely not for kids! 35 Union Square at 16th St., 212-645-3400; 127 W. 43rd St. btw.
