Art Bar

Bar in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

A decidedly bohemian crowd favors Art Bar, which doesn't look like much up front (booths are crowded too close to the wooden bar), but it has a bit more going on in the back. Grab your beer or a house special (usually martinis) and head for the couches, placed under a huge Last Supper-esque mural featuring Jimmy Dean and Marilyn Monroe, among others.

There's a roaring fire in the winter. Make sure to stop by for happy hour from 4pm to 7pm daily.
