The room feels like an old speakeasy. The cocktails are creative and very good. The food options are limited and expensive. However, they are delicious. The pastrami short ribs are outstanding and perhaps a reason to return. The staff is attentive.
Friendly staff, hidden speakeasy, great history AND phenomenal food and cocktails. We made dinner reservations for this place and loved it. I highly recommend checking this place out. The bartenders make a great old fashion and the gnocchi special knocked my socks off. I enjoyed...every bite.More
Made a same day rez on a Thursday early evening for myself and a friend. We were greeted warmly at the door and seated immediately to a cozy 2 top. The restaurant is dimly lit and is warm and inviting. The waitress was professional, personable,...and on top of everything during the entire meal. We had lovely drinks and a fabulous meal. I devoured my burger & fries!!! DELICIOUS!!! I HIGHLY recommend a FAB experience here!More
This is the place where the term "86" originated. An old speakeasy from the 1920's and it retains its charm and atmosphere. We stopped for drinks while doing an audio tour of Greenwich Village. Learned a lot and had a blast. Definitely stop in and...enjoy a slice of history as well.More
We were on a staycation and doing our best to visit some of the historical bars, taverns, inns and speakeasy establishments in NYC. Chumley's was on our list and in the neighborhood we were visiting this particular day. There is really no sign indicating the...entrance to this establishment, so you better know where you are going. We walked in and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was gracious and directed us to the bar where we were greeted by a pleasant barmaid. We chose some cocktails and some bar appetizers for our visit. The barmaid was pleasant and told us what she knew of the 1922 Speakeasy and it's history with writers, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald. She informed us that a local historian is a regular and we should visit when he was in house if we wanted to know more. Charming historical interior with a nice menu and full bar. A place we will certainly revisit.More
Forget the old vs the new Chumley's. The restaurant we eat in today is what matters. And today Chumleys is just another overpriced Village eatery, although an attractive and fun place, to be sure. Everyone raves about the burgers. Except me. I just don't think...huge fat content equals great flavor. I love bone marrow. It's part of this burger. So what? It doesn't make it tastier; neither does the slab of what seems to be American cheese inserted between the unremarkable buns. Fries are equally meh. I'm not crazy about the menu; maybe the limited offerings are what draw folks to the burgers. The service is friendly and knowledgeable, although the hostess and the gent taking our reservation were on the cranky side. All in all, it's an experience. Experience it, and move on.More

Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.

Not sure if there’s a dress code TBH. We turned up late afternoon just for a few drinks, didn’t book in advance and were greeted in the best possible way! The young lady at the front desk even gave us a table and we chatted for ages. Smart jeans, yep. If I was staying for dinner I would dress up, just because it would be a special night ??
