One of Manhattan’s great local bar scenes keeps getting better. Hudson Yards, already home to several fabulous watering holes, has recently added to its mix. Here’s where to pull up a stool when you’re looking for …
… a neighborhood local.
O’Toole’s Way is the welcoming pub you’ll want to return to again and again. Just steps from The High Line, it offers the kind of fare— “Proper Fish and Chips,” sirloin steak on toast, oysters Rockefeller—that you want to wash down with your pint of Guinness (or Old- Fashioned or glass of wine).
… a party vibe.
The Bronx Brewery was built on the idea of community, culture and creativity. Whether you’re hanging at the Friday night Block Party Happy Hour or settling in to watch the big game, you’ll be happy to choose from an impressive selection of year-round, seasonal and limited-release brews and a menu of cast-iron skillet nachos and other house-made shareable snacks.
… a place to make memories.
Whether it’s a date night or closed-the-deal celebration, Quin Bar offers just-right lighting, plush seating and a resident DJ. On offer: handcrafted cocktails, an extensive spirit list and luxe bites like oysters, seared yellowfin tuna, and A5 wagyu, uni and caviar nigiri.
… a bit of cosmopolitan flair.
Experience the pleasures of Spanish drinking culture at Bar Celona. Inspired by the country’s vermuterías, they’re pouring various vermouths and vermouth-centric cocktails—and, of course, sangrías—and serving select tapas. For a more complete tapas experience, though, head to La Barra, whose selection of Iberian drinks and wine matches its menu of shareable bites.
… an intriguing glass of wine (or two!).
For a gorgeous setting to match an unbeatable selection, look no further than Milos Wine Bar. There, you can choose from among 100 Greek wines, some sourced from the volcanic terroir of Santorini, others from the slopes of the Peloponnese mountains, and most unavailable elsewhere in the city.
… a verdant escape.
At Ana Bar & Eatery, this lush green-tiled bar, has market-inspired drinks come with names like No Fig Deal and Hudson Harvest. There are also three negroni options, featuring flavors like green apple bitters and black cherry infusions, wine by the glass and a variety of beers.
… a classic G&T.
The bartenders at the British-inspired Queensyard would be expected to bring an expert touch to this cocktail—and they more than come through, even in non-alcoholic versions that skip the “G.” Beautiful views of golden-hour sunsets overdeliver, too.
