Stand up. Walk four steps to your left. You’ve now walked the entire width of Virgola, which may very well be the smallest bar in New York City. Don’t let its stature deceive you – this Italian wine bar in the West Village deserves a spot on your roster. It’s dark and vibey, and has $1 oysters all day.

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.
Casellula is a nice little wine and cheese bar in Midtown West, perfect for a pre-theater meal.
