Lois is a wine bar in the East Village that looks like a hipper and more expensive version of Ikea. And that’s the real draw of this place. That and the decently priced wine that’s all on tap (no bottles here). They also have some bar food like avocado arepas, and if you ever can’t decide between a good wine bar and a place that will Instagram well, come here. This place is both.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
