Came in February and really enjoyed the atmosphere with a group of 10. Came back with no reservations and were able to get inside in about 20 minutes. Stuffed animals and very decent coctails. Snacks from Crif Dogs. Very good, small intimate bar.

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

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
