New York City
West Village’s best bars
Easily one of the best bars in the West Village, Employees Only was one of the first purveyors of ”craft cocktails” in the city. Its original charm certainly hasn’t dimmed: the bartenders don white lab coats ready to serve you classics like a Manhattan or a Negroni.
Everyone loves a New York speakeasy and The Garret fits the bill perfectly. Hidden away above the Five Guys on 7th and Bleeker, you’ll find a laid back, sky lit bar with inventive cocktails like The Missus Wheeler: Four Roses bourbon, banana Gifford, ginger Drambuie and lemon on the rocks. If a more intimate setting is on the cards for your next date night, then Bar Sardine could be just the place for you. It’s as small as the name suggests, but this gastro-pub does a mean cocktail. The menu features three different types of Bloody Mary, along with plenty of other twists on your old favourites- if nothing else, the creative names will give you a chuckle. Check out these spots on your next night out in the West Village!
