Vbar & Cafe

Map & Directions 225 Sullivan St.
New York, NY 10012


Village Voice's Description

Vbar, the Greenwich Village predecessor of Vbar St. Marks, is the more studious of the two. Located in the heart of NYU-ville, it mimics the dormitory lair of a brooding philosophy major, wherein books, Roman statues, and emptied bottles are displayed on shelves circling the room. Mac-equipped grad students line the wooden countertops on the left side of the room, directly across from Vbar's comprehensive-and reasonably priced-bottled beer menu. Naturally, the Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre (brewed with raisons and beet sugar) tastes best with a chapter of cranky ol' Sartre.

    Work space by day (outlets + WiFi). Bar by night w/ awesome wine list! Vibe = rustic hipster.

    This is my go to study spot. Sunlight, nice bartenders, good coffee, and you can bring over Chinese from next door
