Open until 5 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights (and until 2 a.m. the rest of the week), Pop Burger is a chic alternative to the dim nature of fast-food joints. In the front space, you’ll find the Meatpacking crowd chowing down on burgers, fries and hot dogs, while the back lounge offers a full bar serving cocktails such as the Downtown Manhattan (Maker’s Mark, sweet vermouth and bitters).

Given the bustling bar scene in the Lower East Side, late-night dining options abound, but Schiller’s has remained a crowd favorite since 2003. Keith McNally’s Austrian-French bistro is packed nightly with a fashionable crowd downing cocktails such as the Wildflower (Hendrick’s Gin, hibiscus, cucumber and lemon juice) alongside pub grub such as steak frites, garlic shrimp and mussels until 2 a.m.
