The Wren

 

344 Bowery (btw 2nd St. & 3rd St.)

Casual Bar $$

Sun-Wed open until 2am

Th-Sat open until 4am

A casual bar on Bowery that's good for a pre-dinner drink but does get very busy later on into the night.  If you're looking to catch up with a couple friends during the weeknight, this is your place.  The kitchen is also open until 1am.
