Vol De Nuit
New York, NY 10012
Village Voice's Description
Vol de Nuit isn't where self-proclaimed "beer dorks" hang out (you'll find them at the Blind Tiger a couple blocks down), but it's a gateway spot for those looking to add a few new glasses to their repertoire. Comprised of three layers--a bar, an inside patio, and a dark-wooded alcove--this Belgian spot turns into a loud, non-dancing nightclub during the weekend. Basking in the scarlet lighting that pervades the room, customers snack on clams and frites, washing it all down with Vol de Nuit's prized beer: the framboise, a lambic brew made with raspberries. And man, it doesn't taste like beer.
Tips from foursquare
This place is truly a hidden gem - a cozy Belgian beer bar with a vast array of beers on tap and an even more extensive bottled selection. We’ll definitely be back to enjoy the terrace on a sunny day.
If it's warm, snag a seat outside with a Duvel Green and order up some moules et frites. If it's cold, cozy up on a couch with a date and a lambic. Then let the happy sink in.
Srsly only one bathroom...
If you're hungry and order the fries, don't turn your nose up at mayonnaise as a condiment. It's delicious. And while you're at it, order a Corsendonk Brown to go with it.
delirium tremens, moules frites, leffe brujn.
