What to Drink: If wine, mixed drinks and drafts don't do it for you, there's also an extensive selection of scotches, bourbons and tequilas, plus a stellar variety of bottled brews.
The Extras: No contemporary New York rock bar would be complete without some celebrity backing, and this one is no different--Bowery Electric's principal's include popular singer/ songwriter Jesse Malin and nightlife impresario Johnny T, of Motherf*cker party fame.
Fun Fact: In addition to being a play on the title of Walt Whitman's "I Sing the Body Electric," the bar's name is also a tribute to the old Bowery Electric Festival at CBGB and the Bowery Electrical Supply Co, which occupied the space for over 50 years.
