Drink Like a Local in NYC

Drink like a local in NYC with these great bars

From Aussie Mums in New York:

New Yorkers are a social bunch and there are plenty of great bars to satisfy everyone including wine bars, sports bars, dive bars, cocktail bars and the very unique 'SpeakEasy' bar.

As locals or as a visitor to the city you definitely want to avoid the well known bars or cheesy locations  (did someone say Times Square?) Below is a list of bars you won't find in the tourist guide book but offer a great night out with a real "only in New York" vibe.
