Rustic yet refined, Von is a sophisticated wine bar with a double personality that draws a great mix of well-dressed architects, designers, fashion types, working artists, and young professionals that makes for some excellent conversation.
Situated on two levels, the bar offers a more laid-back experience in its upstairs wine bar, whose hardwood floors, exposed brick, weathered wood bar, and golden glow of candlelight create a homey atmosphere perfect for chatting over a glass of red with friends or admiring the amusing collection of paintings all composed by the bar’s owner.
A smaller room in the back features austere wood benches, marble-topped cocktail tables, and candle sconces to create a space perfect for an intimate rendezvous.
A more upbeat vibe can be found in their downstairs space, dubbed Von Kellar, where an equally dark room featuring a wine-cork ceiling, a backlit bar, and black leather banquettes draws a rowdier crowd intent on chatting, flirting, and showing their moves on the sunken flagstone dance floor.
From the praise-worthy mixed drinks to the sophisticated organic décor and engaging mix of people, Von can’t be beat for a fun night out with friends or an intimate evening with a special someone.
Creative professionals, designers, artists, people from the fashion and restaurant industries, and a suited after-work contingent, mid-20s to late 30s.
Ambient music upstairs. A downstairs DJ spins music ranging from 80s glam to Nigerian funk every night but Sunday.
Extensive wine and beer list. Happy Hour daily 3–5pm.
Beer $6–$9, wine $7–$12, cocktails $9–$20.
Artsy casual: jeans, trendy tops, dresses.
Saturday nights for the liveliest and most crowded scene, though Fridays are also busy.
Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery) is a good place to start the night out with some poetry or live music before settling in with a drink at Von.
