Prohibition typifies the Upper West Side bar scene. It’s spacious and funky but not overly hip. It’s popular but rarely packed. The waitstaff is young, beautiful and unpretentious. The cool décor features lamps made out of out of skinny lightbulbs suspended in wine bottles. In the front bar area, live bands perform on a tiny stage: Every night features a different musical act, from groovy funk to jazz. If you’d rather focus on your date, head to the back room, where you can also dine on surprisingly good New American cuisine.
