Feel Like Getting Wild? Hit Up Vida Verde & Barcelona Bar in Midtown
Get ready to thank us, because we recently discovered midtown Manhattan’s best-kept secret: Vida Verde. We’re not sure how it took us so long to find this hidden gem, but we’re glad we did. This bi-level cocktail bar and restaurant features an outdoor rooftop with grand scale murals and bright string lights. Drink and dine under the stars as you enjoy innovative cocktails and shared plates inspired by the tastes of Mexico. With a heavy emphasis on mezcal and tequila, you can’t go wrong with any drink on the menu.
Next, keep the energy high and walk a few blocks over to Barcelona Bar. Here, you’ll find over 100 shot options with names like Harry Potter, Return of the King, and Full Metal Jacket. The names aren’t the only things that are festive about these cocktails. In fact, you are either required to dress the part or participate in the show. Ordering the Full Metal Jacket? Be prepared to put on a provided helmet and brace yourself. Is Harry Potter calling your name? Keep your eyes open for a flaming spectacle not to be missed.
