Best themed bars in NYC
Located below The Happiest Hour, this sophisticated West Village speakeasy relives Hollywood’s golden age with an art deco theme and an old-school soundtrack. The cocktail menu is divided between classic and contemporary selections: Traditional choices offer old and familiar picks, with a selection of The Three Families featuring old-fashioneds, Sours and Fizzes, Manhattans and martinis. House favorites have their respective place as well, comprised of Aperitifs, Spice Rack, Shaken and Stirred and with dual spirits, balanced mixes and esoteric ingredients. Food options are provided from its upstairs neighbor’s kitchen.
For those who appreciate live piano music or remain in search of the perfect karaoke bars, this Chelsea venue is for you. As a modern uptake on the classic piano bar, your listening ears will pick up selections from a Baldwin Baby Grand that extend beyond standard songs, with rock, pop and even punk coming from the ivory keys. Divided into two sections, find an audience gathered around the piano in the backroom, partaking in a group sing-along or taking individual turns at the mic. This house party is complemented by marbled cocktail bar upfront serving wines, beers, bubbly and specialties such as a scotch-based Penicillin.
