Vbar St. Marks opened in 2010 on St. Marks Place and First Ave. in the heart of the East Village, another quintessential NYC neighborhood, famous for its authenticity, diversity, and significant moments in counterculture history. The space, previously home to St Mark's Bar & Grill where the Stones shot their “Waiting On A Friend” video in the early 80's, was entirely renovated to uncover its beautiful structure and create a seamless integration between the inside and the outside: exposed brick walls, stripped metal pillars, a warm, old-fashioned bar, and wide front windows offering a close view on one of the busiest corners in the area.
Vbar St. Marks offers weekend brunch, lunch and dinner, and a full bar, in an airy, casual-stylish atmosphere. Our menus, based mostly on natural, seasonal ingredients, focus on modern American bar treats and main dishes with an Italian twist.Vbar St. Marks offers weekend brunch, lunch and dinner, and a full bar, in an airy, casual-stylish atmosphere.

The East Village remains one of the most authentic communities in the city, known worldwide for its quintessential freedom of expression, and home to a vibrant, eclectic, and innovative restaurant/bar scene. We are thrilled to support Performance Space 122 (PS122), a contemporary performance art leader, devoted to empowering so many great artists to take risks and to challenge conventional boundaries. We also recognize the amazing work done by other local institutions, such as La MaMa, the Lower East Side Girls Club, the East Village Community Coalition, and many more.
