Casa La Femme, The Rusty Knot, The Upholstery Store, The Other Room
This was an interesting little West Village Bar Hop. We stumbled through this neighborhood after/during a lame ‘concert in the park’ on Pier 45 by West 10th St. We couldn’t stand the heat, so we moved it inside. I’m not necessarily recommending doing this as a bar hop unless you are pretty hardy. Each one stands alone. How did we wind up with this mix? The Time Out New York App, a rather helpful tool to get you to the next closest bar in 100 degree temperatures.
