On our way to the theatre, we happened upon Bar Veloce and stopped in for a drink. What a great place! We really liked the vibe, appreciated the first rate staff, and we had a nice cocktail too. Will be back again to sample the...More

Came in to use the bathroom. That wasn't a great experience. However, the food was. Great ambiance and mood for a bar date.

This was a lovely place to chill before heading to dinner. They have big, wide open windows from which we stared out into a lovely, sunny evening. Had a couple glasses of nice wine. We will definitely be going back.

This is a great no frills wine bar to meet with friends or potential first date. It's not too crowded. Great vibe. Lot's of wine selection. In terms of food, the bruschetta was great plate. I love their truffle panini :)

This place is dressed up like a proper cocktail bar but is some sort of hollywood facsimile or set. They have a cocktail drinks menu with about 6 or seven items, ok great - but really none of them were appealing. So I asked for...More

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
