I sat at the bar and had a fantastic chat with Jonathan Cohen, the friendly owner. Very nice Lambrusco and also other fine Italian reds by the bottle or glass. Jonathan really knows his wine and has assembled a fine selection. And the food is...More

Went there with a group of friends to chill and relax before dinner. The service is super nice and the wine list quite extensive. Happy hour makes the stay quite cheap!

My favorite wine bar for happy hour! $20 for a bottle of wine. We've only had the Grillo because it's so good that we keep ordering it. We also tried some of the cheeses and charcuterie. They were okay, nothing too memorable except for the...More

Like other reviewers, we found 8th St Wine Cellar quite by accident. The signage is minimal and location such that it's easy to walk by without noticing. We're so glad we did find this terrific wine bar for pre-dinner drinks and appetizer. The soft lighting...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
