The Cabin

What hipster doesn’t love a good speakeasy? This one is in the East Village, and to get in you enter through what appears to be an open alley just across from Tompkins Square Park. Drinks are around $12, and are crafted from some fine and fancy ingredients. Certainly not dive bar prices, but the atmosphere is what had me raving — dark and quiet, and illuminated by candlelight. There’s a big wooden bar in one corner, a few booths, and a few tiny tables. Very atmospheric, very small, and a nice place for two to linger. That said, it does fill up fast, so it’s really not the best for groups. There are actually two bars in one — I was only at the smaller one in the front, but the back bar is supposed to be a bigger affair. Something I’ll have to be on the lookout for on my next visit.
