Sure, you can grab a beer or cocktail at just about any bar in the city, but if you want to take your beer loving, cocktail drinking, and ghost story telling game to the next level then you’re going to have to check out Lovecraft Bar in NYC! Located in the heart of the Lower East Side, Lovecraft is NYC’s newest craft bar and restaurant.
This horror-themed bar was created in honor of writer H.P. Lovecraft; American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Lovecraft Bar NYC has been inspired and modeled after his literary works, with drinks that include infused cocktails, a large selection of beers, and scrumptious eats. Everything from the drinks to the décor pay tribute to Lovecraft’s life and works.
The impeccable artwork and design by a local artist gives this bar a “Lovecraftian” atmosphere that is overflowing with wonder and terror. He spent hundreds of hours making this lounge to the standards H.P. Lovecraft and his fans deserve. Gorgeously painted, the eldritch interior design gives it a spooky, yet mystical vibe, which makes this NYC bar simply spectacular.
I had a lovely review dinner that started with the Ceasar salad, which I highly recommend. One tip: Get your dressing on the side as it comes with a lot. I followed the salad with the Skirt Steak served with grilled vegetables and the garlic mash. I also tried a mouthful of the You can substitute this instead of the steak if you are in the mood for a really yummy fish option. The dessert menu rotates but on the night I was there the Creme Brulee was the one to have. All the dishes were hearty and scrumputous, although I would skip the mash. I have two requests that I would love to see added to make this my perfect regular LES hang – a good alcohol-free beer, like Singha or Bucklers, and decaf coffee options. For us teetotalers, who don’t drink coffee late at night, there were not enough drink options.
While the decor is especially loved by Lovecraft fans, local art enthusiasts, and live-music fanatics, you don’t have to be a fan of the legendary horror fiction legend writer to fall in love with this venue. If you enjoy a laid-back atmosphere with superb food, top-notch service and, of course, exceptional drinks, then this will be your new favorite East Village spot. Lovecraft is a captivating establishment that all New Yorkers will find truly special and unique.
