Moonflower review image



If you’re looking for a fun place to drink natural wine in the West Village, Moonflower should be your new clubhouse. With its pastel murals and mirror that looks like a disco ball, this little bar has an atmosphere that we would describe as Lisa Frank meets Henri Matisse, and it’s the perfect place to relax with a friend over a glass of Slovenian pet-nat. The wine list is old-world and natural, so don’t come looking for a nice Bordeaux—your wine will be a bit funkier than that. You can get some small plates like cured trout and tuna tartare, and there are few colorfully-painted tables where you can hang out, in addition to some bar seating.
