Leave Rochelle Out of It
There’s something about whiskey on Christmas, and if you’re spending Christmas in New York City, you’re in luck. Commonly referred to as just Rochelle’s, this Lower East Side hang out has over 120 whiskeys available, not to mention their signature whiskey cocktails that are perfect to drink alone under the mistletoe. No matter what your plans are for the holiday, Rochelle’s is open late night and determined to put you in the Christmas spirit. (205 Chrystie St.; 212-673-2400)

Seamstress
Fashionably fashioned in leather and celebrating all thing Americana, Seamstress in the Upper East Side has you covered for Christmas. Put yourself somewhere warm and cozy and cuddle up to classic cocktails, American fare, and some festive atmosphere, perhaps you too can have sugar plum fairies dance in your head. (339 E 75th St.; 212-288-8033)

Winter Garden at The Standard East Village
The Standard Hotels always have something extra going on, and the Christmas holiday is certainly no exception. Over at their East Village location, they’ve embraced the winter season with a heated back garden area equipped with furnished tents adorned with holiday cheer. Comfort is guaranteed and just to ensure it, the special seasonal cocktails will seal the deal for any grinch or scrooge. (25 Cooper Sq.,; 212-475-5700)

Seasonal cocktails and bites are also available to make sure you feel like you’re celebrating. (136 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn; 718-782-8370)

Union Hall
Over in Park Slope, what used to be a massive warehouse is now a two-floor bar and lounge perfect to get comfortable in whenever you decide to pop in on Christmas day. Fully equipped with all the necessities of comfort - fireplace, bocce ball, booze, and even a respectable library - Union Hall is maybe one of the better Christmas gifts you’ll get this year.
