About

bar Sardine is a laid back, easygoing West Village neighborhood gastropub. Our goal is to bring together neighbors and friends in a warm and celebratory atmosphere. Our menu is inspired by classic, soulful favorites, along with a changing rotation of market-driven, seasonally-focused dishes. Our wine list is full of Old World wines that are both complex and quaffable. We also have a constantly-rotating eclectic mix of innovative original cocktails side-by-side with twists on classic standbys.

What sort of food do you serve at bar Sardine?
Our menu has something for everyone, whether you are coming in for a snack or for lunch, brunch or dinner. We have an oyster trough built in to the bar, a medley of lighter bites and shareable plates, and everything from a great burger to seafood entrees that are always changing. Our menu has plenty of vegetarian-friendly fare, and we're happy to make modifications based on a guest's needs. Check out our menu here.

Can I stop by just for drinks?
Provided we are not on a wait for dining, we love hosting drinkers.  We have a small area for hanging out, but it's often standing room only.  If you're dining we'll help you find a seat at the bar or at one of our tables.

When can I visit?
ALL DAY LONG. We open Monday through Friday at noon serving our all day menu and Saturday and Sunday at noon with brunch. We're open all afternoon and evening seven nights a week. Sunday through Wednesday we close at midnight and Thursday, Friday and Saturday we're open until 2 am. We serve food until close. View Our Hours

Does bar Sardine take reservations?
We're sorry to say we can't take reservations. Because our space is small, we seat the restaurant on a walk-in basis. If there aren't seats available when you stop in, we'll take down your number and give you a call when spots open up.

Will there be a wait for a seat?
It depends on when you visit. During the afternoons, there's usually not a wait. During busy nights there may be a wait but we'll try to find you a seat ASAP.

Is bar Sardine good for groups?
You can always come by and see, but given our small size we're best for groups of four or less.

Is bar Sardine available for events?
Yes! We love it when people want to celebrate something with us. If you'd like to learn more, please email our Director of Special Events, Elena Silva, at elena@happycookingnyc.com
