This bar has been around for more than a decade, and it shows. But the well-worn, bohemian look continues to please a casual, mixed-age crowd. Settle into the circular booths up front, or the comfy, date-friendly couches and lounge chairs in the back. Artwork—no big surprise—adorns the walls. A basic pub menu is available, and the digital jukebox is kept at a festive but reasonable volume, making this a suitable place to talk the night away.

Art Bar is one of my West Village go-to casual bars. The front bar is a perfect place to have a casual weeknight drink or start a weekend night. The back bar is a bit hidden and has a super intimate vibe - really great for a date. It is a pretty unassuming vibe, so the crowd and atmosphere is very relaxed. I will say it isn't a great place to go to meet new people, most people come in groups (or on dates). 

Definitely try their martinis. I love the Hot Tomato... a Bloody Mary Martini.
