The West Village remains one of Manhattan’s most beautiful and cinematic neighborhoods. Be the star of your own show with this perfectly delightful plan.
DRINK: Go Old-Fashioned at Due West
Due West is the perfect mix of sports bar and cocktail lounge. Order the Due Your Own old-fashioned and customize your hearty drink by choosing the spirit, sugar, and bitters. 189 West 10th Street (between Bleecker and West 4th Streets)
DO: Get Cultured at Greenwich House
Opened as a community center for immigrants in the early 20th century, Greenwich House was also the off-Broadway home of What the Constitution Means to Me, before the brilliant show launched on Broadway. Nearly every night the space brings music, art, and performance to the neighborhood—and your heart. 27 Barrow Street (between Seventh Avenue and Jones Street)
EAT: Feel at Home at Via Carota
Via Carota feels like home in every detail, from the mismatched plates to the comforting food. You should probably order at least two pastas, and one must be the Meyer lemon and olive oil risotto, which is magically both lighter and creamier than is typical for this dish. Open for lunch and dinner. 51 Grove Street (between Seventh Avenue and Christopher Street)
