This winebar has atmosphere. The people at the bar are nice and help you well with your choice of wine. The food is also nice and complements the wine.

This little wine bar can get crowded during happy hour, but has an extensive selection of wine and cheese that must be tried. My boyfriend and I recently happened upon this wine bar and had several choices of meats and cheeses that we couldn't stop eating. The wine choices were also great and we both had selections that we really... More

We had wines and small bites and plates and more wine, paired by the skilled bar tenders. Order larger plates with salad and smoked eel. And ultimately paired truffles with a dessert wine. We spend more than 2 hours perched on chairs as the room got noisier and nosier but our small group of 4 managed to maintain our intimacy.... More

I recently came across LelaBar after leaving The Clam next door(after a bad visit to THE CLAM). LeLaBar is a small space w/ the large oval bar taking up most of the room. The staff is OUTSTANDING to say the least.....the quality of all the plates were consistently excellent on all 3 of my recent visits. And the wine list... More

Lelabar is a small, but well-designed wine bar in the West Village. The place is dominated by a large oval bar with stools all around it. There are hooks under the bar to hang purses, umbrellas, etc. Four of us visited last Saturday during happy hour, which is held daily from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Since four people sitting... More

Great place! Staff is very welcoming and their mission is to please you with your/their wine choice. No wine label snobbery, they serve a terrific selection of nice wines that is certain to please both casual drinkers and experts. I could not make up my mind and the server was very patient with me. She offered some tastes until my... More

Vast and complex carte des vins to pair with fabulous small dishes. Service cares for details. Crystals are the proper to each variety of wine and region. Plates are thought to maximize the tasting experience. A place to repeat. The only thing I found a little disturbing was how loud people can get in the small room.

I was looking for a wine bar in the area and happily stumbled upon Lelabar. They have an extensive wine collection - from glasses to half bottles to bottles - and a good variety of small bites. We snacked on the eel (painstaking to separate but tasty once you do!), the lardo (yum), anchovies on crostini (double yum since it... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
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.
