Once known as Clock Bar (it’s located in the historic Clock Tower building, go figure) before its rebirth, this brick-walled bar is decked out with portraits of famous Charlies (Lindbergh, Parker, and the Tuna). They dish up Southern-inspired cuisine using locally-sourced ingredients and pour everything from upscale cocktails to local brews. Further incentive to venture to the 138th St. stop: daily happy hour including $1 oysters and half-off the entire bar, and 4 for $10 cocktails at brunch.
Founded by Carlo Petrini, the Slow Food Movement is an “eco-gastronomic movement” drawing a connection between the plate and the planet. SFNYC is creating a community of people and places devoted to high-quality, sustainability and authenticity of food. “The Slur” is Slow Food’s bi-monthly Happy Hour, a relaxed event giving attendees the opportunity to talk with SF’s leadership and meet other “Slow”-minded people. These events are only held at bars or restaurants committed to craft cocktails, local beers and wines, and/or traditional methods.

Charlie’s Bar & Kitchen, 112 Lincoln Avenue, Bronx, NY 10454 (in the back room)
