When it comes to happy hour in NYC, a cocktail isn’t truly worthy unless its Instagram worthy. With so many spots around the city for the prettiest, craziest and most unique drinks, I had to round up my favorites Instagram Worthy cocktail bars, both old and new, that are worth a visit and drink (or two) in New York.
9 NYC COCKTAIL BARS FOR YOUR INSTAGRAM WORTHY COCKTAILS:
While the food and drinks are more on the fancy and chic side here, its their bar that makes it an Instagram hot spot. Stop in for a drink before dinner or snap a photo after a cozy Sunday breakfast.
Who could say no to sharing cocktails out of a disco ball?! This is such a fun Midtown spot if you’re in need of somewhere all the way not downtown.
For a girls night out, what could be more fun than cocktails made out of ice cream and served in teacup?! This tiny bar is actually a speakeasy inside an ice cream store so its also a fun surprise for out of town guests.
This cocktail bar has made my list a few times and that’s because of its gorgeous (and delicious) cocktails. The entire space is Instagram worthy, including their unique and colorful cocktails. I recommend coming for an afternoon drink on a Saturday and sitting at the bar for great West Village people watching.
If you’re looking for a healthy spot, this is the perfect place to bring your vegetarian friend. All their cocktails are wine or champagne based, and all guaranteed to be unique and photo worthy.
Another favorite for me is Sel Rrose. With its great location in Soho, I have never been disappointed for cocktails or apps here. It’s my go to for a cocktail and truffle fries or oysters after an afternoon of shopping and ideal for a bigger group as well.
The ultimate Instagram drink spot, this is a favorite place to bring guests when in town thanks to their fun (and strong!) cocktails.
If you’re visiting New York in the summer, there isn’t anywhere more ideal to enjoy a cocktail than on the Grand Banks boat. Anchored at Pier 25, this yellow and white striped boat has incredible views of the city skyline and the Statue of Liberty, as well as summer favorites like lobster rolls and oysters and cocktails.
Come for the pancakes, stay for the cocktails. This Williamsburg brunch favorite has not only amazing food but also incredible cocktails. How cute is the honey bear drink?!
