VBar Cafe NYC

Everyone knows the tired cliches of people setting up their laptops in public and banging away at the keys to make themselves feel more writerly. But sometimes you really do need to work someplace that isn’t your messy house, or a depressing, urine soaked library.

For that purpose, my favorite spot in the entire world in Vbar in the village.

A lovely and adorable cafe/bar with affable staff, delicious drinks, accommodating tables and classical music during the day and jazz at night.  it is the least obnoxious and most approachable and fun place to do work. No one makes you feel like a dick for staying and doing work although you can’t just not order anything.  My rule of thumb is order something every 2 hours-something more than 2 dollars, because they are running a business.  That said, at Vbar, no one will ever be a dick to you if you don’t.

I can’t say enough about it, so just go.

Ashley Friedman - Cornerstore Correspondent

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
