After the engagement party goes south, Logan, Shiv, and Roman take Connor out for the rest of the night. They head down to Chelsea and go into the dive bar Peter McManus at 152 7th Avenue on 19th Street. Kendall gets an unsettling call here. 

The old-school spot has a long wooden bar, two vintage phone booths, and tv screens for sports. Opened in 1936, the bar claims to be the oldest family-run bar in New York City and it’s no stranger to film shoots. The bar has appeared on screen in movies like Highlander (1986) starring Sean Connery, Woody Allen’s Radio Days (1987), and The Other Guys (2010). It can be seen in television shows including Seinfeld, Law and Order, Saturday Night Live, and Broad City.

After the Peter McManus Cafe, Connor decides he’d like to do karaoke like he’s seen in the movies. The gang heads to Koreatown. Once there they book a private room at Maru Karaoke Lounge. It’s all fun and games until Logan and Kerry show up. 

Koreatown is one of the many ethnic enclaves that dot New York City. The proliferation of Korean businesses in the area started with a bookstore called “Koryo Books” and the restaurant Kom Tang. A large influx of Korean immigrants in the 1980s contributed to the growth of the area. Now, there are around 100 businesses located along “Korea Way,” the stretch of 32nd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
