Harlem is home to many gems including Harlem Nights, a fairly new neighborhood bar that opened up about two years ago. This cozy bar and lounge hosts a daily happy hour from 4pm-9pm, live DJ sets Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm-3am as well as live music most nights from 8:30pm-11:30pm. One great thing about Harlem Nights is that as long as their bar is open, so is the kitchen. That whole, “our kitchen closes at 11pm” nonsense is nonexistent here!
