Greenwich Village / NoHo, New York –
Perhaps more kitsch than Cuban, the charming Agozar! nonetheless provides East Villagers with a delicious Cuban-Spanish tapas menu and some of the best mojitos in town.
An eclectic L-shaped space painted in vibrant hues of blue, orange, and red, the bistro is a popular lunch spot for bag-laden shoppers who fill the banquettes in the narrow Havana Dining Room to savor ceviche and tapas beneath vibrant oil paintings.
Early evenings see an influx of couples, local young professionals, and fashion intern types who crowd into the compact mojito lounge or linger at the tables in the front bar area to take advantage of the excellent Happy Hour deals.
On weekends, the combination of great food, cheap drinks, and a DJ spinning loud Cuban music and Top 40 hits draws a slightly younger crowd of both casual and dressier pre-partiers, though the vibe is more on the drinking and dining side than on the dancing side.
Upbeat and lively no matter what time of day or night, Agozar!’s unpretentious atmosphere and Cuban cuisine make it a great first stop on a night on the town.
Local nine-to-fivers, shop girls, fashion-conscious downtowners, dates, and shoppers, 20s to 30s.
