If only they served more food here, I'd stay all night! Went on Friday after work, and it was busy with college kids and young professionals. Ordered the Midwest Mule (HIGHLY recommend if you're looking for something sweet instead of sour or spicy) and my whole table got 2-3 rounds of picklebacks. I loved the Bloody Mary spin on the...

I would recommended folks coming to this place to chill and hangout. It is cozy and fun place to be. The drinks are reasonable price. The staffs are very friendly. Never had Pickle back before and it was interesting. It is a shot of whiskey accompanied with a shot of pickle juice.

We were not planning to go to The Belfry but on walking passed, the lighting and interior decor was so eye catching and inviting that we decided to stop over for a drink, great decision! Delicious drinks as well as friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. All in all a great place to grab a drink and soak in some authentic... More

This place is awesome! The bar is quaint and has a great vibe. It's hip atomoshpere makes for a great place to meet up with friends for happy hour. The "pickle backs" are a must-try. They have several different varieties to choose from and during happy hour, beers are $5 from 4-8 and the picklebacks are $5 all night long.... More

Came by with a big group of friends one night. Drinks are fairly priced and the bar was busy but not full. We were able to get some tables together which was clutch. Atmosphere is bumping. But if you go, you have to get a pickle back. Shot of whiskey chased with a shot of pickle brine. I mean why... More

Last time we went here with my friends was a couple of weeks ago. We went in a non-peak time (not friday night for sure)... It was really nice and cozy. We discovered this place a couple of years ago and is still our go to bar if we crave for pickleback shots. We try not to go here around... More

It was a great little space and hip ambiance. The crowd was young (not too young) and the drinks were great. Perfect for an after work drinks place.

Stumbled across this place with a friend one day and was pleasantly surprised! The inside of this bar is beautiful and the music is great. They have a nice selection of beers and a number of different pickle back options. Love hanging out here with friends and the trivia night is always good fun!

I loved it here! The atmosphere is very laid-back and chill, although they do play some awesome music for dancing. Plus, they have pickle back shots starting from $5. My friends and I definitely found our new place for the weekends.

I went on a Tuesday night for trivia, and didn't think it would be too crazy, but it was packed. It was also ridiculously loud, and I left there with a headache. Other than the beer options are good, if they have them in stock, and the best part about Belfry are the picklebacks! I went with classic, but I... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
