For many hip Manhattanites, the Village is the place to head for a great night out, and the famous Bleecker Street—with its boisterous bars, cheap eats and hot music venues—is usually the first stop.

An excellent bar that serves up cold drinks and a lively atmosphere is Asylum, where this patron, taken by Webshots member alko09, is watching the crowd go by. In stunning black and white with subtle blur effects, this image captures the laid-back mood of this watering hole.

Not too far from Asylum is Washington Square Park, a hang out for New York University students, and Café Wha?, where many musicians and comedians, such as Bob Dylan and Bill Cosby, got their start.

At the end of Bleecker is the renowned club CBGB, whose full name is CBGB & OMFUG, which stands for “Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gourmandizers.”

The best part about barhopping in NYC, though, is that last call is at 4 a.m. Drink up!
