8) The Shakespeare, New York City

This recently-opened Midtown pub appears as if it’s been transported lock, stock, and barrel from the English countryside, and it comes complete with one of New York’s only “snugs,” a small compartment located right at the end of the bar where a group of 4-6 can relax completely enclosed from the rest of the room, with a sliding window to order your drinks through. While ensconced at the dark wood bar, or in the cozy side dining room, you can enjoy a huge piece of beer-battered cod, light and flaky under its shatteringly crisp crust, along with triple-cooked thick-cut chips. Wash it down with a bottle of Manchester Star Porter, and pretend that you’ve been transported to Stratford-Upon-Avon.
