We searched dozens of craft brew pubs, trendy restaurants, cafes, sports bars, dive bars, burger joints–basically any destination that serves a great IPA craft beer–around Greenwich Village, New York for the best IPA Bar.
Our search for the best IPA Bar begins on Houston Street just north of TriBeca in NYC’s Greenwich Village. Take the NYC Subway 1 train to Houston Street Stop.
Brooklyn is producing some of the best craft beers in United States right now. The Brooklyneer pours many of these local craft beers in a very chill space. It’s the perfect bar in a slightly remote location. Bushwick White IPA by Braven is the perfect IPA to start to get us hoppy.
Next door to Brooklyneer is an out of the way German beer bar. Houston Hall is like a frat party with great TVs. I’m guessing some IDs are being scanned for the first time here. If you’re 30-40 something you might feel like Will Farrell in Old School. Just don’t go streaking down Varick Street. We have more IPAs to drink.
Walk north a few blocks to Bleecker Street and you will find Bakery and Company, a new locals hang out with excellent seasonal dishes and craft beer. It’s a restaurant (not a bar) so be good. The bar manager is very knowledgeable about the beers. So call him over and try IPA Singlecut Billy Half-Stack from Queens. You will find Instant Credibility IPA at Arts and Craft Beer Parlor and De Ranke XX Bitter IPA at 124 Rabbit Club.
