Hudson House is a neighborhood bar versatile enough for an outing with your best friend or a setting for a dinner date. It doesn’t have the esoteric quality of a dive bar, or the see-and-be-seen feeling of an upscale joint. It’s somewhere in between, and that’s why everyone is so comfortable here.
Come in the early evening on a Tuesday to nab a dark-wooded table without a wait. Order a happy hour street taco at a dollar each, and then pick from a wide range of beers and cocktails. You may be tempted to watch the flat screen above the bar or listen to the great mix of tunes that you would’ve chosen on your own. But don’t. Since the tables are so close to each other, this is your chance to meet a few new people. It usually works out for the best.
