The Up & Up


116 Macdougal (on the corner of Minetta Ln.)

Cocktail Bar $$$

Sun-W 5pm–2am

Th-Sat 5pm–3am

A seated only cocktail bar accepting groups of six or fewer first come, first serve (but if there's a wait, they'll text you when a table is ready).  The bar snacks are from Murray's, one of my favorite cheese shops in West Village.  They have a selection of French cheeses, sopressata/prosciutto, dried fruits and fancy nuts, cheese puffs, and olives.   You could try coming here before or after Dante, Minetta Tavern, or Bar Pitti
