West Village Bars, Restaurants and Pizza Joints

Description

This second-floor bar above Five Guys creates a handsome setting with original exposed brick and other old-fashioned touches that take a cue from its 1908 building. Guests can kick back in the bar area or a loungey nook by the retired fireplace, sipping cocktails and even ordering up some burgers from downstairs. --Zagat

Description

This “dark, secretive” Village basement “cocktails oasis” with a speakeasy vibe, serves “bespoke cocktails” that are “conversation pieces in and of themselves”; despite being “crazy expensive” (and cash-only) it's so “killer” that it's always busy – expect “a bit of a hassle to get a seat.” --Zagat

Description

A “semi-speakeasy” behind a semi-hidden entrance, this “sceney” but “relaxed” West Villager ranks among the “all-time favorites” for “phenomenal cocktails” via “bartenders who treat their craft as an art”; since it “tends to get packed”, those in the know employ it as a “late-night alternative.” --Zagat

Description

Bringing Brooklyn-worthy dimensions to the South Village, this massive, 5,000-sq.-ft.beer hall follows through with a distressed, neo-industrial design that’s a mix of exposed brick, communal tables and steel beams galore (it was carved out of a former parking garage); the suds come courtesy of Greenpoint Beer Works, while the crowds – and you should expect crowds – come from all over the place. --Zagat

Description

An Acme vet is behind this retro West Village lounge evoking midcentury cocktail culture in distinct spaces: a horseshoe bar and tiki-inspired dining area on the main floor and a jazzy intimate bar down below. Small bites and burgers accompany classic or signature cocktails, the latter of which can be made with any spirit. P.S. there's also a retro cocktail bar downstairs called Slowly Shirley. --Zagat

Description

“Incredible” pastas and other “creative” Italian dishes are “done with great care” at this “happening” West Village “standout” where the “polished” staffers also curate an “impeccable wine list”; the “intimate” bi-level digs “bustle” with a “youngish crowd”, so “bring ear plugs” – and good luck getting a reservation. --Zagat
