I Miss My Bar definitely fills a void many have been feeling the last year. If you had a local and are missing it dearly, we recommend you check it out. Even through I was pregnant and not drinking at all when Covid first shut down bars in NYC, I still missed sitting at a bar, reading a book or hanging with my friends. NYC’s bar scene was one of the finest in the world pre-Covid, some of my faves being WXOU Bar in the West Village (which has temporarily closed) Lucky Strike in Soho (which has permanently closed) and Bemelmans Bar for a special occasion (which I hope to visit again when I feel safe enough). Anyway, play around with I Miss My Bar and transport yourself back to simpler times. What bar are you missing most?
