Sometimes life calls for a glass of wine. Vyne in the West Village focuses on white varietals and has a particularly interesting selection from Eastern Europe. It has a happy hour until 7 p.m. every day. Get your hands on its Gruner Veltliner, Nero d’ Avola, Cava Rose, or Six Point for just $5. Just want a gin and tonic? That’s only $6.
Adorned with spacious couches and even a fireplace, it’s a great place to bring a date for a romantic spring evening in the town. You can do wine by the glass, but it’s best to get a bottle if you’re a two-glass type of person. Bar snacks (roasted almonds, marinated olives, and hand-cut French fries) are at $4 each.
