When looking to dip out of the cold streets of West Village, Bar Next Door is the hearth to beat. Nestled in the basement of a restored townhouse, this charming and diminutive bar is decorated by hanging portraits, flickering candlelight, and cozy black seating. The outside world loses shape with the help of soft live jazz each weeknight and the menu of drinks is extensive, showing off over 50 specialties--and 25 are served hot with whipped cream. (Try the butterscotch-schnapps-laden Nikki Coffee; it's perfect for dissolving that late-autumn chill.) There's also a shorter and moderately priced wine list (most glasses only cost $8).
