No kitsch, no trash, no pretense. This low-key two-room lair, all candlelit dark wood and exposed brick, is favored by those who prefer quiet conversation. A large chalkboard trumpets an extensive selection of mostly French wines by the glass—and Von’s barkeeps know their vino—but the bar also has a full liquor license. For fans of the deejaying arts, the cozy, semisecret basement—where top locals spin funk, disco, house, hip-hop and more—is the place to be.

This bar is the best of most worlds when it comes to an NYC bar experience. It feels a bit like a hole in the wall, is much bigger than you initially anticipated and the downstairs gets 'dancey' later on in the night. 

For being a self-proclaimed wine bar, their list is not very extensive. That is not to say the wine is not good, but they options are far from endless. 

The 'vibes' and the ample areas for reservation sell this place both for a small group and getting the whole gang together. Plus, if you go into the little annex for a breather, you get to stare at a rotating mural. Joey Ramone is currently on display.
