Ten Degrees is a wine bar in the East Village that has a great Happy Hour - all drinks are two-for-one until 8pm everyday, including on weekends. The crowded horseshoe bar up front is best when they open the doors during nice weather, and the small tables along the walls in the back work well for early-in-the-game dates.

The Four Horsemen
Part natural wine bar, part restaurant, The Four Horsemen is one of our favorite places to drink and eat in Brooklyn.
Il Posto Accanto
Il Posto Accanto in the East Village is home to some of the best meatballs and pastas in town. Plus, it has a great wine list and open air dining.
The Ten Bells
The Ten Bells is a beautifully laid out space with a nice bar, plenty of room for hanging, an incredible wine list made up entirely of organic and sustainable wines, and an oyster happy hour every damn day. But despite also having a large menu of mostly Spanish small plates, eating a full-blown meal here is unnecessary.

The Immigrant is a beer bar on one side and a wine bar on the other. As far as East Village bars go, this is one of the nicer, calmer ones.
