Tucked away below street-level in Greenwich Village, Zinc Bar offers a candlelit spot to consume cocktails and enjoy nightly performances by a variety of jazz musicians. The low-ceilinged bar also plays jazz tunes throughout the night, but if you head to the back of the space, you can see a live show as well. Check out Zinc Bar’s events calendar for details. When I visited Zinc recently, I tried one of its specialty drinks, The A Train. A mix of gin (or vodka), cucumber, lime juice, Pimm’s and white cranberry juice, my drink was bubbly and possessed just the right amount of fruity flavor without being overly sweet. If you don’t see anything that appeals to you on the menu, feel free to ask the bartender to create a drink for you. My coworker asked for something with gin and received a Double Duchess, flavored with strawberry jam.
