A late-night menu, reasonably priced drinks, and a welcoming atmosphere keep people coming back to Art Bar, a West Village staple that draws a loyal mix of locals and out-of-towners alike.

A late-night menu, reasonably priced drinks, and a welcoming atmosphere keep people coming back to Art Bar, a West Village staple that draws a loyal mix of locals and out-of-towners alike.

A candlelit front room lined with a long bar on one side and green leather booths on the other features tilted mirrors and a green-and-orange harlequin-diamond wall that lend the space a slight carnival feel, which only adds to the festive atmosphere created by the steady stream of college students, tourists, and young professionals who show up to snack on appetizers or chat over a martini or three.

Couples looking for a more intimate space will want to check out the vintage living room down the hall, whose old leather couches, teardrop chandeliers, and flickering fireplace provide a sensual backdrop for engaging conversations.

Artsy types will appreciate the giant pop art representation of the Last Supper featuring the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Elvis, as well as the rotating exhibits of works by local artists.

The combination of playful décor, creative cocktails like the Watermelon Jolly Rancher, and laid-back but sociable atmosphere gives Art Bar a quirky yet familiar feel that has made it a destination spot for patrons looking for an upbeat night out.

Tip from Emma:

Check out the art in the back room! Art Bar has a great permanent collection, but they also showcase a different artist every few months. The work ranges from abstract painting to photography, and they even throw opening parties. If you’re interested in purchasing, just ask the bartender for the artist’s card.

My brother took me to this bar because we like to have a casual night out sometimes. I was a great place to have some drinks and talk about your day. I enjoyed the atmosphere and how calm it was. The drink were definitely reasonably priced and I go there very often now.
Not bad, but don't go out of your way

I do have to say I have somewhat of a soft spot for this place since it is the first place I ever used my fake ID - but in my defense it was for afterwork drinks with my coworkers who were all well over 21. It's a great place to catch some casual drinks with friends but I would necessarily go out of my way to go here. It is a good stop though if you're looking to pregame before heading out to the pricier bars in the Meatpacking district. The rotating art shows are also a nice touch that does separate it from other dive bars in the area
