Great location cool vibe 11/14/2009

Have not eaten here yet, but has a decent beer selection of bottles. I love that its like a dive feel, but still cool. So you don't feel like you have a dress up, but won't fall asleep at the bar. Cool crowd, cool space with all the little nooks. Definitely recommend. Pros: Low key, dive, sexy people, good drinks Cons: crowds more

Oh No, Nasty Bartender Ruining Our Favorite Hangout 11/4/2009

My husband and I always loved the atmosphere at Von. Love Kareem and Luis and Happy the Pitbull. Have spent many a great night here over the past 8 years- always found it the perfect place to have a drink and a conversation -- esp the back room. At Von you never had to worry about catching attitude from staff or patrons. Which is why we have been so disappointed of late. On three separate occasions the same bartender (female, tall) has doused our spirits with an attitude that is at best indifferent, though more often anger laced and overtly rude. The last incident was the capper- I ordered a scotch neat for my husband. She poured it over ice. My husband apologized and reminded her politely that I ordered it neat. She glared at us as she dumped the glass, barked, ""Why didn't you just say that?"" --huh?-- and then turned away and took someone else's order. I'm not thin skinned. I can handle a bit of attitude. But when someone in the ""service"" industry is so consistently rude it makes me think the people who run the place no longer care about my business. we hate to have to do it, but i suppose we'll be drinking at the Scratcher from now on. Pros: Chillaxed vibe, Good Wine List, You can have a Conversation Cons: Rudest Bartender in NYC more

A nice little gem on Bleeker Street 9/6/2008

I really liked this place. They had a great selection of wines, and the crowd was very unpretentious. The ""hidden"" room in the back was a nice surprise. Will definitely go back again. Pros: Great atmosphere, lots of chill space Cons: Can't think of any more

One of the better wine bars 6/19/2008

This is a very inviting, calm, unpretentious place. It has a cool ambience with great wine and drinks. Owner and bar staff are congenial - it is a very inviting place to be. more

Chill Bar, Cute Doggy 10/12/2007

Very relaxed atmosphere with decent wine list. Definitely a big departure from Manahatta across the street. Pros: Knowledgeable bartender, dog friendly Cons: can be hard to get drinks when it's packed more

My 2nd Favorite Bar 3/26/2007

Von is a gem. It would be my first favorite if it were 3 blocks closer to my apartment. Cervantes, Kareem and Luis are my favorites and Happy the pitbull always makes me smile. Pros: Everything! Atmosphere, Service, Beer / Wine Selection... PERFECT Cons: Can't think of a one. Oh - gets a bit busier than I'd like on weekends, but everywhere downtown does. more

One of the best 11/21/2006

This is my favorite bar in the neighborhood. Fun regulars, nice atmosphere, plenty of room, and absolutely no pretension. I can't go here without getting stuck for hours. more

Worth a Visit 4/30/2003

Von's a great spot to visit with a group of friends or alone. They have a (great) limited selection of beer and the atmosphere is welcoming and cozy. And it's not a ""too-trendy"" scene. Pros: atmosphere, crowd Cons: single bathroom more

great wine & liquor too! 2/13/2003

They make liquor drinks now, too. It's not just beer and wine anymore. And i must say the mojitos are delicious!!! It's an awesome place to meet for a quick drink, or to spend the whole night. more

a laid back scene 5/20/2002

As other reviewers have noted, this semi-swank beer and wine bar does attract a cruising crowd--but it's also laid back, dog-friendly and not usually that crowded. Try the back room for a seat. more

Double your Pleasure 5/20/2002

The great thing about Von is that you can opt in or out of the scene. Sure, it's cruising territory, but I've seen people come in and peacefully read a book unmolested. You don't get attention here that you don't want, and there are plenty of folks just stopping in on their evening dogwalk or to enjoy a casual glass of wine with friends. more

  • No matter that Von now has a full liquor license, with its fine Eurobrews, extensive wine list and nice selection of wines by the glass it's still a beer and wine bar in spirit. Plank floors and...
