So what does everyone think?

As an example, 5th Ave from Atlantic Ave to, as far as I've walked, Prospect Expressway.

Obviously there are large stretches in Manhattan from Midtown on down.

In Brooklyn and Queens, some of the notable ones are:

Prince Street in Flushing between 37th Avenue and Roosevelt with the only break in it being the small municipal parking lot taking up one side of a small block. Prince Street itself has multiple places where it stacks restaurants and bars within buildings and the side streets and the paralleling Main Street also have a lot of businesses.

Smith Street and Court Street in Cobble Hill and into parts of Carroll Gardens are also full of bars and restaurants.

A good stretch of Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, despite having businesses on only one side of the block, used to be really packed, but it seems more muted these days though still busy.

Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint from Greenpoint Ave to Nassau Ave is also pretty packed along with some of its side streets.

8th Avenue in Sunset Park though that skews much further towards restaurants and eateries than it does bars.

Hell Square, where I live just on it's fringes but still in it. Allen St, Houston St, Essex St, Delancey St. I fckin' love it and can barhop for days. The bleed over is great too with Top Hops, La Caverna, etc. etc. Ave A is pretty good too from like Sing Sing up to Doc Holidays. St Marks has stuff, but it's more East Asian restaurants these days, which isn't a bad thing. Between Barcade, that Irish pub, kenka, and the like. On a Saturday night, just chill on Stanton anywhere from Orchard to Ludlow. It's silly. Mr Purple, No Fun, Pianos, Pizza Beach, Slipper Room, Arlene's Grocery, Hair of the Dog, etc. I miss the cider bar, but things close and people move on. It's a sake bar now.

However, we can't beat Golden Gai in density with its 200 bars within about the same area. We have a better bar culture though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinjuku_Golden_Gai

You'll probably see me at Antlers pretty often. Happy hour all night on Mondays.

I agree. Bay Ridge has tons of bars. I'm of course including Fort Hamilton as well.

Guinness Book of world Records held Ridgewood back in the 70's 80's as the most bars in the entire country.

Now they have turned into houses of worship.............................
