In the summertime, Spritzenhaus’s large windows open up to create a breezy and casual atmosphere. In the winter months, the windows are shut tight, the fireplaces are lit and the long bier garden-style tables are filled with a mix of twenty-somethings drinking one of the almost 50 import and domestic beers on tap.

The Garret

Bar, American, $$$

The Garret is made visible from Bleecker Street by a bright neon sign in the window that says ‘Soul.’ It is seemingly inaccessible from the street level, leading aspiring drinkers to circle the block searching for a way to penetrate the brick walls and ascend to the cozy second floor speakeasy. Only those who are in the know (or who are willing to spark up conversation with a Five Guys employee) know how to get in. The entrance is hidden in the back of the burger joint, where an inconspicuous bouncer stands casually by the counter waiting to admit people to the upper level. The bar is small and cozy, so it’s low-key atmosphere helps to keep it comfortable. Classically styled and filled with eclectic artwork, The Garrett is a great place for a winter date night.
