We love small casual bars in NYC that are filled with character and make for a great spot to meet up with friends. Von is exactly that, and the fact that they are dog friendly makes it the perfect spot for us! We loved its worn-in and cozy interior that’s even decorated with vintage-style photos of dogs (you’ll have to look closely to find them).
We spent the afternoon with one of our friends at Von last Saturday. Since it was freezing and snowing out, we started out with Hot Toddies to warm us up. The bartender was really nice and thought Minnie was adorable. Even though it was only around 3 pm, Von started getting crowded with neighborhood bar-hoppers and Minnie had a blast meeting them all. At one point, the entire bar got a laugh when everyone took out their camera phones and made believe they were taking a ‘paparazzi’ shot of Minnie. The crowd at Von was fun and friendly, making it the perfect spot to come and meet new people.
Minnie was getting so much love that someone bought us Fireball shots. We thought it was funny that even though we (two ladies) accompanied Minnie, it was the dog who scored the free drinks.
Von is also a great night spot, because they have a downstairs room that gets really lively later on.
We would definitely return to Von to grab a few drinks the next time we’re in the area.
