friend told me about Vbar a couple of months ago, so I decided to go there to give it a try. My verdict: MOST DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE EVER!

Not only did the wine remind me of some kind of motor oil that would have just passed its use-by

I once liked vbar, but recently one of the employees (the one with brownish-red hair and a mustache) was incredibly rude. I purchased an upwards of $15 of food/drinks from him, and he first refused to serve me because I didn't initially tip him (who tips BEFORE they are served?), and then after I DID tip him, he singled me out and asked me to leave, claiming again that I didn't tip. If the owner is reading this, I recommend firing this guy. I will never go there again. I recommend instead Esperanto or Think. At least they are cordial.

t could have been deadly. I was the only one to show up for drink club. The small place was packed, and the kitchen was closed. ("We ran out of bread."). But there was a great beer selection, and the guy next to me was friendlier than a wino. We talked for hours... turns out he owns the place. Don't expect it to be empty if the weather's bad. People come here to get out of bad weather. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers.

Pros: friendly staff, friendly crowd, good beer selection

Cons: forget about the "cafe" part of the name if you arrive after 8PM

.

Nice atmosphere in this little bar but the bartenders are totally rude, and seem to have a problem with anything other than single patrons or couples. They are very strict about where people can stand or sit and seem intent on keeping the place quiet and subdued, even on a weekend. There is no tolerance for large groups or general merrymaking so don't even think of going in with a group of your mates.

This is a best kept secret wine bar/cafe. The ambience is great, and feels French. The lights are bit too dim at night and there's only one bartender but it's an intimiate place for a date or with a small group of friends. You can have a cup of coffee (large portion) daytime and read a book there, or play Squabble with friends. Nighttime you can share some baquette with olives and white wine with a date. I enjoy my time there every time I go.

I basically lived at this place for a good two years, and it's one of the few things I miss about New York. During the day it's great for coffee and a quiet read, and at night there is a happy lack of skeazeballs. The bartenders are friendly, capable, and hilarious; the wine/beer selection is always interesting and well-chosen. My only problem with the V Bar was that the tables and chairs are not particularly conducive to short people. The best part of this place is that it attracts a great crowd of regulars and has its own mini-library.

Spent a fabulous year down there while studying in the neighbourhood during the (not that fabulous) years of 2001/2002. Always a cozy place to spend a night when you're far away from home and in search of nice a glass of beer. As said before: great staff that makes you feel home

Pros: Staff, Choice

Great bar, wood-paneled and cozy without feeling cramped, all kinds of music that youve never heard of (I havent, anyway, but its always interesting). Perfect place to split two bottles of wine on a Sunday night and play scrabble with your girl, or have round after round of cold beers with your buddies after work. Also a great place to get a drink on your own; the bartenders are always friendly and fun and know when to chat you up with some funny story or leave you alone with your drink and your thoughts. The asian bartender with all the eye liner always seems pouty but she dances while shes washing the dishes and makes it worth it.

Where the Holden Caufields of the world converge. I have been there 4 times & have always met somebody interesting & intelligent. The bartender Joe has big round glasses & fluctuating facial hair, he is full of wit, sarcasm, & a very funny guy to talk to. He's there on friday nights bartending with this girl who obviously sold her soul to look like a super model, she's on wed nights too, check her out. There is an assorted list of smart & funny regulars with a generous array of diverse individualism. The guy who works friday day & sunday night, is also very nice & interesting, but needs a serious Queer eye for the straight guy make over, get rid of the cowboy boots & put on a black t-shirt!

If you're cool, and not in an over hyped cocky way you should check it out.

Pros: Staff, atmosphere, selection

An excellent bar with a fantastic friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Whether you're looking for a glass of quality wine and a chance to unwind after a rough workday, or just want to hang out with some friends and talk somewhere where you can actually hear what they're saying, it's a great location.

Totally stumbled into this place by accident after checking a friend's gig at the Lions Den across the street. This is a great place, but easy to walk right past. It has a homey feel, good assortment of beer and wine. The bartender was an extremely nice guy, makes you want to go back. Atmosphere is laid back, very relaxed. Perfect place to go for a nice relaxing evening.

I always go to the V-Bar. The young bartenders are the best. Especially the BALDING BRO! Dude, the V-Bar is so chill and awesome. They've got the best croissants anywhere in this city, and I love all the staff, they're so friendly and great. I really can't recommend the V-Bar enough.

$12 for Prosecco!! And not even a generous glass. For a venue with budget conscious decor and a few wooden stools they charge like they were premium hotel bar.

I've been here several times for a late-night glass of vino. The atmosphere is great - very mellow, dark lighting, candles..... The service is efficient, casual and entertaining. Have not yet tried the food, but as a neighborhood bar, it's wonderful!
