We were staying round the corner at the indigo hotel and chose to drink here a couple of times during our stay. Place is cool and funky and well priced. If you like a funky cool bar this is the place !

I wandered in here before taking in a show near here for a quick meal and a beer (or two!). Lucky for me late Saturday afternoon was happy hour with special prices on food and drinks. I got two delicious beers and two delicious tacos for $20, including a generous tip. Okay- if you're from nice small town, semi-rural America... More

Stopped by No Fun because its walking distance from Katz Deli, had no idea how much fun this was. We walked in around 10pm on a friday night and didn't leave till 4am. Fun and friendly crowd, great dj. One of the best bar experiences I've had. Definitely coming back again.

Stopped in here for a drink to escape the cold and James was our bartender. He was so personable and made our visit SO FUN!! We snacked on the queso which was incredible while we enjoyed Gray drink specials. The place is beautiful and is a must see on the Lower East Side!!

Well many people think why they name a bar No Fun. But once you inside it is really fun. Very smarty they turn off the light on the NO part so all you read is Fun. A chilled out place to hang out with friends.

We stumbled upon No Fun one night out on our recent trip to NYC. The drinks were reasonably priced and the New Yorkers who hang out there are super friendly! All in all was a great night out and it included celebrating one of the barman's birthdays at midnight :)

It's very low key, I tried to look for the name of the bar on the outside and I couldn't see it. I was there for a private event, our friend reserved the back room which has comfy lounge sofas and a small dance floor and DJ booth. I think we overtook the entire bar, almost everyone there were our... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
