Area in Manhattan with good night life (bars and restaurants

Hi - I am trying to work out which area to concentrate my hotel search on. I will be staying in Manhattan at the end of September for 4 nights on the return leg of my honeymoon. We (late 20's/early 30's) are looking to stay in area where there are plenty of bars and restaurants (not super trendy - more casual and fun) - within walking distance of the hotel. My opinion is that we can always travel to do sightseeing but in the evening I would rather be close to the hotel when out for drinks and food.

I started looking at the West Village/Greenwich areas but thought that I would ask here first before spending any more hours trawling reviews. Any other areas I should consider?

Agree. Bigger issue will be budget. There arent a lot of hotels in that area and end of Sept. is really pricey. The Wyndham Garden Inn Chinatown is on the edge of the lower east side and usually has decent prices.

Yes, we agree that the Village areas are also a good choice. The end of September usually has great weather and brings many visitors, as well, the universities in the area will have begun their Fall semesters and the area will be loaded with students. There are also some great casual restaurants and bars and lots of fun nightlife.

Hey blondends:-) Another area to consider may be the UWS.. wall to wall casual, fun bars along Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues.. all the way up to Columbia U area where the place will be jumping with students.. as well as always with locals, by Sept;-) Not many hotels in this area as well but enough to choose from and from all, when you exit, steps to lots of local places;-) Best.. and EnJOY!
