From the chicest dens in town to barebones joints with stellar wine-powered Happy Hours, wine bars in New York will always have a good bottle waiting.
Obviously ranking the best wine bars in NYC would be cause for some debate, but those looking for a simple but swanky cellar can count on a good night at oyster/wine bar The Ten Bells over in the Lower East Side. Rustic yet refined, Von over in Greenwich Village is a sophisticated wine bar that draws a great mix of architects, designers, fashion types, and artists that makes for some excellent conversation, while Aria in the West Village specializes in biodynamic and organic wines made by female vintners from around the globe.
