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.

Tip from Emma:

If you’re a dog lover, you’re in luck! Von is one of the few canine-friendly bars in the city, so feel free to use Fido as the perfect ice-breaker during their mid-day Happy Hour.

    Beer $6–$9, wine $7–$12, cocktails $9–$20.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Artsy casual: jeans, trendy tops, dresses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Saturday nights for the liveliest and most crowded scene, though Fridays are also busy.

  • Close By

    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.

WJ C. Apr 4, 2013
You can keep the downstairs DJ scene, where Von really shines is up on street level. Barside there's a terrific selection of beers, wines-by-the-glass, and a surprisingly diverse assortment of spirits--not just your usual Maker's and Stoli. In the back room, just off the bar, it's all about quiet conversation and canoodling. Perhaps the most important thing this bar offers is location. The perfect pre- or post-date stop, Von is in walking distance to movies at the Angelica or Landmark Sunshine cinemas, a wide assortment of music and theater venues, and many top-notch restaurants. Speaking of the latter, Von also serves as a sort of annex/waiting area for its next door neighbor Bianca, one of the best (and most reasonable) Italian restaurants in the city.
