Bars in Ukrainian Village/East Village

Recommended Bars in Ukrainian Village/East Village

  • Bar DeVille
    Bar DeVille Ukrainian Village/East Village  1
    DeVille's reputation as a craft cocktail destination has always been somewhat exaggerated—there's never been a dedicated menu, and your chances of getting a complicated drink vary depending on when you go (the earlier the better). But it's a great neighborhood »
  • Empty Bottle
    Music venue
    Empty Bottle Ukrainian Village/East Village  48
  • Gold Star
    Gold Star Ukrainian Village/East Village  1
    Zakopane, Phyllis’ Musical Inn, and the Gold Star form a triangle of well-preserved Ukie Village saloons that have weathered Division Street’s transformation from "Polish Broadway" to hipster strip. Mary Ann Reid, who’s run the place since 1990, says »
  • Happy Village
    Classic Bar
    Happy Village Ukrainian Village/East Village
    With board games and a Ping-Pong room, this is a place where you could easily pass a few hours reconnecting with your childhood, and maybe for this reason it attracts a younger crowd than some of the other neighborhood institutions. »
  • Inner Town Pub
    Inner Town Pub Ukrainian Village/East Village
    This hole evolved from one of the area’s many Prohibition-era speakeasies. Its muted vintage exterior gives way to a subterranean-feeling interior full of haphaz­ardly curated clutter—moose head, army helmet, stained glass, sad clowns, dwarves, elephants, Elvis, wooden Indian, etc. Booze »
  • J&M Tap
    Classic Bar
    J&M Tap Ukrainian Village/East Village
    Perhaps better known as the "Secret Squirrel" because of its blink-and-you'll-miss-it exterior, this corner dive does everything right: ice-cold PBR pitchers for seven bucks, mugs full of salty pretzel rods, a well-used pool table, and the sweetest bartender you’ll ever »
  • Rainbo Club
    Dive Bar
    Rainbo Club Ukrainian Village/East Village  1
    The gorgeous Rainbo is hallowed ground for successive generations of musicians, artists, writers (Nelson Algren among the earliest), and hangers-on, all of whom vie for position on the annual photo-booth calendar—the nonconformist's equivalent of the high school yearbook, issued every »
  • Small Bar Division
    Small Bar Division Ukrainian Village/East Village
    This cozy establishment was voted the country's best soccer bar in a 2010 U.S. Soccer Federation poll, and I'm voting it the only tolerable place to have a beer on the stretch of Division between Damen and Western. In fact, »
  • Takito Kitchen
    Takito Kitchen Ukrainian Village/East Village
    Like David Dworshak's tacos and shareable plates, the tequila- and mezcal-based cocktails here are bright but rarely too sweet; apart from those there are nearly 40 agave-based spirits to sip and, less impressively, several Mexican macrobrews. —Mike Sula
