Thanks to a reader’s urging, I finally got my butt into Lemon Bar. Walking in, I was delighted to see how many people were happy houring at the newest watering hole in West Village. A few restaurants have tried this spot but none have succeeded as Lemon Bar already has seemed to do after only a few months being open.
While the specials are somewhat limited, the drinks are pretty darn great … and not too overwhelming. I had to cut happy hour short to get to dinner and I wish I didn’t have to have done so … and I would have given my left ear lobe to have whatever food’s smell was wafting from the kitchen.
The crowd is very “West Village” – in a good way – and seemed to be a fun place to meet a new friend or two. However, returning to Lemon Bar at night is a different story. People begin to trickle in for the night shift around 8:30 and bring the party. Friday and Saturday nights it’s almost impossible to move let alone get a drink.
Thanks for getting me into Lemon Bar, @tgospel!
