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 more going on in the back. Grab your beer or a house special (usually martinis) and head for the couches, 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.
